Grand Cafe @ Omni Los Angeles Ratings and Reviews
My husband and our friends go to brunch ...
My husband and our friends go to brunch several times a month and this used to be one our our favorite brunch spots, I even encouraged my friend to have her 25 person birthday brunch here, so imagine my disappointment when I arrived yesterday to find that they have gone up on the price by roughly 10 bucks and down on the quality and service. I absolutely HATE when people serve premixed mimosas and that is exactly what is served now and when we asked if we could have ours the "regular" way we were told NO. The seafood wasn't as fresh as usual, the french toast and waffles were ice cold. The only thing that made me not ask for our money back and walk out was the omelet bar and the chef making the omelettes were both amazing. Our waiter sat us down and took our drink order and NEVER returned....luckily SAL(I hope I got his name right) was nice enough to get us what we needed when asked. I don't think we will return which is very sad because we really liked this place :(

My first time with family to come to Omni Grand Cafe for brunch. They provide good foods and deserts,nice atmosphere to get together with friend, or business even special occasions, also great price and good customer service. I would recommend people to enjoying their brunch here.

We have dined at the Grand Cafe for over 25 years - the food is good quality hotel fare and has improved over the years. The fish is always cooked perfectly and other ingredients are fresh and not overly salted.
Sunday brunch is always a noisy, chaotic affair so we could not hear each other, even though we requested (through our open table reservation) to be seated in a quiet area. Instead, we were seated next to a large gathering of loud women.
Our server, whom we have had before seems completely uninterested in her job. She needs some continuing education and a change in attitude. In contrast, the man assisting her was terrific!

Went for brunch and the ambiance was nice. The breakfast and lunch options were pretty decent.
The breakfast options was nice, I enjoyed the omelette station. Seafood options was also very good.
I didn't like how they had a station for porridge and noodles and dumplings, it looked like it was all dried up and gross... Also looked like a display only station, don't eat because you'll regret it later
I would have loved to see some fresh waffles. didn't see any at all.
Overall, everything was good but nothing really wowed me.

Chaotic front desk took over 15min for someone to greet us, even though we had reservations, they offered our party of 4 a makeshift seating or wait till seating in the dining area became available. Since we had theatre tickets we had to take the makeshift table. Food was OK, service was OK. We will not be back "ever" during Sunday brunch, too crazy. Just wanted a quiet lunch with friends before going to Disney Hall concert.

I love this place for brunch. I found out about it in April and have been there 2 times already. I also have a function scheduled for September there. The Saturday brunch is just as good as the Sunday brunch. The food is all fresh and taste excellent. i love the fact that the mimosas are already mixed and blended just right for me. The service is really good and they even honor special requests of the diners

The host walked us all the way out to a patio table without ever asking us if we even wanted to sit outside, and it was a hot day. Host was also not friendly and didn't even smile. Not what is expected from a host.

Came here to celebrate my birthday with a party of 12 and the service was beyond phenomenal. The staff was friendly, charismatic and attentive to everyone's needs, not only our table, while our mimosa glasses never reached the bottom. When it came to the food, the seafood and omelette/waffle station were a big hit with my table. The seafood was fresh, and the waffles were fluffy, sweet and left you wanting more. I would definitely suggest this place for big parties, but be cautious of the never ending mimosas.

I really wanted to love the Grand Cafe! I really did however the food was alright. They really need to offer a variety of dishes. The champagne was good and the service was great considering the restaurant gets really busy. The crowd is quite trendy and diverse which is nice. I highly recommend staying far away from the valet. Take an Uber or park away and walk up. So, the restaurant will validate your parking ticket for 2 hours. After the 2 hours you have to pay the full price. The problem is that the valet service is disorganized. We would have been waiting for over an hour if we didn't run out to the street to get our car from the valet driver. There were cars blocking the drive way waiting to check their cars in. Lucky we only waited 45 mins.
I would not recommend this place simply ...
I would not recommend this place simply for the simple fact that they took an unauthorized charge from my card of $140. And getting them to return it has been a big nightmare and a lot of back and forth. Other than that they would have gotten a better review.

I enjoy eating at the grand cafe. The bottomless mimosas and the prime rib are delicious. However, the price is normally 36$ per person for brunch. I was very disappointed to learn that brunch for Father's Day dramatically increased to 50$ per person. That decreased the overall value of the restaurant from a consumer stand point.

Nice location with valet parking, food never disappoints. Chilean sea bass is beyond compare. our family loves celebrating special occasions here and our young grand kids fit right in. Omelet
bar is super good and service is fast. We'll definitely be returning for more great food!

I'm in hospitality and the service that we received (for the Father's Day Brunch Buffet) was tops from the valet to the desk to the server. Very busy and the noise level was a bit high, but understandably for a special occasion. Still nice ambience, good view, good food (brunch menu), good service, good location... We really had a great time from parking to leaving. Thank you Omni.

It was amazing and the price was great for Father's Day .. The male hostess was a little unfriendly and short but I would definitely come back .. Our waitress was awesome .. We had a party of 21 but they managed our table well ..

This was my second visit here for the weekend brunch. Made reservations to my dad out for fathers day and it was outstanding ! The brunch theme was a backyard BBQ, which was interesting. The ambience feel slightly high end, but with an affordable touch. I constantly recommend this spot to my coworkers and friends for the weekend brunch. I cant wait to have brunch here again!

Went for Father's Day Saturday Brunch. It was fabulous! Omelette and carving station, waffles (nice and moist), crab legs and large shrimp with fresh cocktail sauce and melted butter. Miso soup and dim sum. The desserts were fabulous, in smaller portions so you can enjoy several without wasting food. The staff was great and kept the mimosas coming. Will be going back!
Perfect for lunch before matinee at Disney Hall
The Grand Cafe is our first choice for lunch before a matinee at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The location is only 2 blocks away, and it quite an elegant setting in the Omni Hotel. It was very noisy inside when we arrived so we asked to change our table to be outside, which was very pleasant. The menu on Saturdays is now primarily brunch, and was limited in typical lunch items. However, we both had items that we enjoyed -- buttermilk pancakes and a French dip sandwich. Both were flavorful and well presented. Service was attentive and timely. We would definitely come here again.
Great downtown dining spot
Second time dining here for brunch prior to the theater. We ordered off the ala carte menu. The frittata was great as was the omelet. I drink a lot of coffee and I judge service by whether my cup ever hits bottom - but they kept it filled. Great ambiance with open windows and a great view. Would definitely recommend.
Brunch hot spot
This place is great for brunch with mimosas! Although it was a little pricey, the mimosas would be filled every time we took a sip! And the buffet has loads of choices! Food was good, apart from the salmon (I totally understand it's dry because it's sitting out trying to keep warm). Would recommend this place for groups and families. It was a bit loud for datetime dining
Great Service, Great Food, Great Place
Service is great, host have us seated as soon as we walked in.
The server is very nice, comes around a few time to make sure we don't need anything.
People working always give me a smile and friendly attitude, really made me want to go for second visit.
Food is awesome, especially if you love sea food!
the crab feet are well prepared and ready for eat, very fresh.
Dessert Section are very cute, and for people like sweet or not can both enjoy.
Full of pastries choices, I cannot resisted. Almost had 5 different kinds of bread.
Asian station, I think they can still improve with a lot of difference choices.
For Brunch, fresh omelet and fresh waffle made my weekend.
We had a window seat, which I can see the LA Contemporary Art Installation.
Outside is would be great if the weather is nice.
We even walked around outside after the brunch.
Very close to Disney Concert Hall and Broad Museum, made this place a even greater location.
Bad Service and No flavor
We were a small group of people and every single time we had to ask for more soda, water, or mimosas. We had to constantly be asking for a fork because they would take it with the plate. The times that they passed we felt ignored. The variety of food was good, but not worth the price. The seafood had no flavor and for $36 + tax I expect some flavor on my food. No flavor on the crabs, fish or shrimp. For the Asian section there were dumplings and gyoza that tasted bland like dough and it was a disappointment. The ambiance couldn't solve the food, service and value, so overall my rating is poor.
Great for groups!
This is such a great spot to catch up with friends. The food is delicious and there is a lot to choose from... It's not too crowded or loud so you can easily engage in conversation with your group. The staff was friendly. The bottomless mimosas was a big PLUS too.
