We went here for thanksgiving buffet lunch which was $65 dollars each. The service was bad and slow. They didn't seem to bother too much as service was automatically added to the bill. The selection of food looked better on the menu then on the plates, the meat was cold and gravy was already getting congealed because it was going... More

Breakfast was supposed to be included in our room so we ate here a couple of times. The first item i tried was an omelet with cheese. It was dry and no cheese, I had it sent back to add cheese and the server brought it back exactly the same, saying the chef said he couldn't add cheese because it... More

Went here for brunch while staying at the hotel. Expensive but very nice food and staff couldn't be nicer. Relaxing way to start the weekend.

WE enjoyed Easter brunch after Easter services at St. Mark's, Locust St. Service was great, food wonderful and atmosphere beautiful. Felt like we were in Paris for the afternoon, except that we did not have a view of the Eiffel Tower! Plentiful shrimp and mussels raw bar, lovely salads, a lamb carving station, and other entrees with complimentary champagne. I... More

Great servers and quality food. Coffee is excellent and staff goes out of their way to provide a great experience, if only for a quick breakfast.

We were staying at the Sofitel and this day had breakfast at Chez Colette. From the first moment we walked in it was a wonderful experience. The server was amazing. He was funny and very helpful. Nothing was a problem. I had a tomato and spinach omelette and potatoes. The server also brought us the most amazing croissant. Definitely will... More

We stayed at Sofitel for business overnight and decided to have breakfast before heading out for the day. When we stood to be seated, we waited a few minutes- then we were seated and looked around at a number of tables with guests seated in a spacious well decorated room. We sat for over 10 minutes with my husband asking... More

When I sat down I thought the menu was OK, and there was a buffet. I thought the buffet would be eggs, sausage, potatoes which did not appeal to me after similar at a conference the previous 2 days. But I decided to look anyway and found what I expected, then turned around and found a line of tables that... More

Only had breakfast here, twice, but it was an absolutely lovely way to start the day. Had an amazing smoothie one day. An amazing omelette the other. Great service, friendly staff.

Had a weekend breakfast buffet at the restaurant while visiting Philly. Buffet had a good variety of foods and the price wasn't that bad compared to a la carte. We ate quite late and the place was almost empty and it seemed that some of the food had been on serve for quite a while and didn't taste that fresh... More
