It’s been years since this beautiful old mansion part of The Palace, was formerly the famed Le Cirque which we dined in back in the day when service was impeccable to justify the cost. Unfortunately even tho the ambiance and food is above average, the service, friendliness, and food options were below. In the end- it nets out to average. Family of 4: $280 for brunch. Keep in mind: Easter Brunch (menu attached) so you should expect even more. However, sadly no Easter or Passover decorations. Only dessert was cheesecake ! Not even chocolate! No chocolate on Easter?! A sin. But seriously, we ordered the bakery items in lieu of having bread to start and they all had that crispy, sitting around awhile first impression. The waiter never brought over bread plates and didn’t return for over 10 min so we used our saucers from coffee to put the croissants on. Not a big deal (not being stuffy) but again the high prices didn’t justify the lack of service or detail. The food was excellent tasting we all must say. Very small portions (but expected). Waiter did not make any conversation and did his job, but with a lack of engagement.

The trouble with a short break in NYC is that you run out of fine dining opportunities.. 5 nights 5 restaurants... The solution is have breakfast in the former Villard Mansion - you will eat in the finest dining rooms in NYC. You will experience a menu that inspires and top quality ingredients that will rival any of the City's top restaurants. All of this is served under the watchful eye of one of NYC's finest Restaurant and Beverage Managers, Eddie Grant who, year on year, continues to deliver with his team exemplary customer service. So, go on treat yourself ... you know you deserve it!

There are breakfast restaurants and then there is Villard. Usually, even the finest breakfast spots do little more than put fancy names of old time breakfast standards. But here, everything on the menu, even the most mundane continental breakfast to the brioche pudding french toast,everything was prepared to perfection and presented with panache!

Food was good, but wayyyyyy over priced. Eggs,bacon, toast, and potatoes= $36!?!?!?!. The portion was for a child. The waiter we had was terrible. If you read other reviews people complain about the service and I agree. They include a 15% gratuiuty which is why they probably don't care about the customers. Our waiter didn't bring water and didnt ask us how our meal was. Just came over with a check and didn't ask if we needed anything else. Place is for Booshie people.
