The Westgate Hotel - Sunday Brunch & Le Fontainebleau Room Ratings and Reviews
Westgate is by far our favorite brunch in San Diego. But for father's day they went above and beyond. There were much more offerings of food and drink, including some craft beer. And, of course, live blues band. It would be awesome if they always had so many selections of brunch items and desserts (all those ice creams -- pistachio, yum). We hope they repeat this event.
The Sunday brunch is outstanding, the service is always super, the selection on
the buffet is everchanging, being reinvented...always something new..
the price is kinda high, even so, I left a $12 tip, so that took the entire
Sunday brunch fare to $75 for ONE person...
I have been visiting this hotel for years. Still the Five star.. Hotel, in
a world of its own....the atmosphere is amazing!
Similar average cafeteria quality food would be about $35.00 at like atmosphere. At $89.00 per person, they charged $54.00 too much. Additionally, they charged $12.00 for parking. There are lots of other places with better food atmosphere for less. Tables and chairs were the kinds you find at the golf tournament tent.
Overall, the Westgate handled the large Mother's Day brunch influx well but the food was disappointing. Selection was good but Many dishes were cold. For $89 pp, you expect more. I have had brunch here before (on a regular Sunday) and food and service were better
I wanted to take my grandmother somewhere special for Mother's Day and decided that the Westgate Brunch would be a great choice after reviewing several top Brunch lists for San Diego. Let me start by saying the service was great and the restaurant itself is aesthetically pleasing. That's where things start to go down hill. First off the Mother's Day Brunch is DOUBLE the price PER Person than the price listed on the westgate hotel website. The reason for this escapes me as the menu is exactly the same as the standard Brunch. Facing a roughly 200.00 bill for only 2 people for a Brunch is absolutely absurd. Exacerbating this issue is that the food is sub par, the main draw is the seafood table that is full of poorly made "sushi"rolls, the saltiest smoked salmon I've ever tasted and over cooked cocktail shrimp as well as some tiny watery crab claws. When you're paying 90.00 per person plus gratuity and parking you expect much more and sadly I was VERY disappointed. I would not reccomend this to anyone even for the standard 60 per person price, one of the most regretful dining experiences I've ever had. The aditional cost for Mother's Day was totally unwarranted and shady in my opinion.
Food and service were really good, I just don't think it was worth the price. My bill on Mother's Day for 2 people ( my wife and me ) was just shy of 180.00. We did not order drinks or anthing extra. Thats ok, I knew the price ahead of time, I was just expecting something better .
Truly exquisite! The food was amazing as was the service. It was great to be seated and then have them tell us that they wanted us to take our time, there was no rush to get out of our table. The service was outstanding but not intrusive - the glasses were always full and plates always cleared but you didn't really notice it happening. All of the staff were so polite. The food was interesting and fun and there were so many choices. We are already planning our next visit!
Honestly the food was exceptional as always. We were here for Easter Brunch. The issue I have is with the overall experience and atmosphere. At this price, you expect to have an overall experience, not be on folding tables and rented chairs with food on the ground from prior services. While I understand the need to service large number of guests on a popular day, they need to remember that people are paying top dollar and are expecting more than folding tables and temp chairs.
Attended Easter Brunch with my 4-year-old daughter. She had a blast, met the Easter Bunny, and there were plenty of food options for kids. The service at the buffet was incredibly attentive and friendly. The hotel is just beautiful and you feel you've been whisked away to another place.
This was my first time and definitely won't be the last. I had heard that your brunch was really good. My family and I were there this past Sunday 3/12/2017, and it was excellent. Everything from the dining room décor, to the very friendly staff, to the food. It was beautifully set up and tasted excellent. Thank you for making our day a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back.
Always love the brunch here, in my view, it is probably the best in San Diego. Strangely, though, this time, the bacon, out of all the beautiful, exquisitely put together dishes, was soggy, and the made to order omelette was mediocre! Everything else was truly wonderful, so it was a shame that these two simple items let the rest down.
We have enjoyed this brunch at least twice a year for a few years now. The service is always flawless. The decor is beautiful. The food is bountiful. I'm a huge fan of the fresh shucked oysters, and I am thrilled to see that they have decided to keep a dedicated "shucker" at the seafood station. On our first visit to this brunch there were oysters that sat there (on ice) for 4 hours. Yuck. That has been remedied. I noticed that the eggs Benedict station has been curtailed to just traditional EB. On our last visit they had several different variations (my favorite involves a layer of crab meat and a lemon hollandaise), but those variations were nowhere to be found this year. The desserts are lovely. I love the caviar. The fresh cut sashimi station is not to be missed! This year's brunch also featured cleverly sliced crab legs/claws. The meat was much easier to get out of the shell than previous years. Great job! My only complaints: a sudden apparent change in the price of the brunch as well as the price of the valet parking. I called about 4 weeks ahead to verify the price $55/person, but the price seems to have been raised since then. Our bill with tax (not including tip) was around $128 for two. The valet validation no longer covers the full brunch hours and the man at the valet desk was extremely snide. I don't think he realized that we patron the brunch and the hotel often enough to know the ropes. Parking came out to $24 (NOT including tip)!!! The last time we came we spent about 5 hours at brunch and paid around $9 for parking. I'm pretty sure the entire day parking rate is around $36 (again, we stay at the hotel several times a year), so $24 for 4-5 hours seems steep. Cap it off with a valet attendant that seemed to want to put us in "our place", we left this delicious brunch with a bad taste in our mouths.
Christmas Day brunch for $90 per person certainly raises expectations. The facility is lovely. However, the overall experience was fair. The food was served in tiny proportions and sometimes felt more like eating dorm food. Sadly, only the well prepared banana fosters' chef was excellent. The service was just average, e.g. every time we left utensils on our plates and went back to the buffet, the plates were taken, but the utensils were not replaced unless we asked. We understand that this is an all day event, which may explain the deterioration in service. All in all we expected more from the Westgate.
Ice Cream Station was a debacle. We stood in line for 15 minutes watching one server try to handle the long line. When a second server came to help, people who had been standing to the side slipped in before everyone else who had been waiting. Apparently there was now an "ice Cream only line" which no one standing in lien knew anything about. The server should have taken more control of the situation, served those who were standing in line first and directed those standing on the side lines to get in line like the rest of us. After standing in line 15 minutes, there was no more Egg Nog ice cream - the only reason we were in line. The overall experience was good but the ice cream station debacle left a bad taste and overall impression.
