Great service. Excellent breakfast buffet. They had it all there but it was too much so plan to come back several times to get the full experience.

I frequently attend lunch meetings at the Carillon and although a bit pricey, the food is excellent. There's twelve of us and the variety of items on the buffets satisfies everyone's preferences. There's a cold salad, fruit, cold vegetables, and lunch meats line. In addition, there's always two varieties of soup with homemade breads. The hot foods buffet has multiple... More

My daughter and I were in town for a concert over the weekend… We decided to try this location for breakfast buffet on a Sunday morning. The hostess was eager to greet us, and extremely helpful regarding details about getting to the event center (from our hotel at AT&T), but that is where the service ended. It took forever for...

I had a weekday breakfast buffet one day during my stay. The food was excellent, and for those who like eggs, there is a nice variety for the $18 buffet. I'm not a huge egg person, so it was less of a good value for me, though the sausage, bacon, and waffles were quite good. Our waiter told us that... More

We had a business meeting here with about 15 people. We were only given one server so it was slow getting drinks and food. The food was good but slow. Here is had chicken fried quail.

If you are looking for fine dining, Carillon is a great place to try out! The seared redfish had a great flavor and was very well balanced. I probably could have gone without the gulf shrimp, although they were very tasty but not worth the cost. The servers were very knowledgeable and it was all in all a great dining... More

Though a little pricey, the breakfast buffet was fantastic. Many options from hot foods to fruits and even smoothies. Ate here every morning as it was convenient and the food was fresh.

We stayed in the hotel and had Sunday brunch and wasn't disappointed. The food quality is high end. Nice array of options for everyone. it's not cheap, but it's unlimited buffet, so enjoy it while you are there.

My husband and I have eaten here a few times and it's always been very good. It's consistently some of the best food in town. I dread going out on Valentine's Day. We have gone out to many nice restaurants on holidays and the food is always subpar. Usually the food is mediocre and overpriced at best. At worst its... More
