Sunday Champagne Brunch has everything you could possibly think of eating for breakfast, and then some. Come see what our Pastry Chef Amanda has baked up for this Sunday's Dessert Table.

Three kinds of Eggs Benedict and all the normal breakfast foods you love to enjoy. Bottomless Champagne.

“Fantastic buffet brunch!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

This was a delicious brunch with excellent service! Worth every penny. Keep in mind, the place is styled in an older more elegant style that may not be appealing to a younger crowd, but I could see groups coming here for family brunches. It's a time to dress up (or even where dressy casual) clothes and enjoy family or friends. How often at a carving station at a brunch do you EVER see duck? I've never seen that. They were generous with it and it was well-cooked! Multiple kinds of eggs benedict for with pork, smoked salmon and veg. Lots of choices. Excellent salad choices and dessert choices. I'm just not sure that ANYTHING was missing at the buffet. That was the best kids-type mac and cheese I've had at a restaurant- it was sort of in between the simple boxed kind and an adult high-end type. Everything and anything you could think of was here and it was all very good. And while the champagne wasn't so great, they'll keep pouring it for you until you are knocked out silly! lol. This was a very nice experience and I'd definitely tell other friends it's worth it!

“NYC West”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Manhattan lives up to its name by creating an old style Manhattan eatery feel. The décor, Sinatra and big band soundtracks, and menu are all designed to take you back to NYC's vibe. The portions are generous, and the service is good. A lively bar with live performances on some evenings adds to the scene.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

A business dinner pre-convention for 5. We were seated, watered & ignored for 15 minutes. Not a good thing for tired show staff. After they took our order, the apps came in a rush - not bad shared calamari & soups. And then we waited & waited for our mains with the server even apologizing at one point. The steaks were over cooked with one of our party - our biggest carnivore - not even finishing his 'funny tasting' ribeye. They were out of the elk & the ostrich & the bison was deemed 'just OK'. A definite fail. The chairs were comfortable but when that is the highlight, there is a problem . . .

“Sunday brunch is so good!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

My cousin and i went here December 2013. This place is amazing. The food is beyond yummy. The inside of this place is so pretty. It would make a perfect date spot. The next time I am in Orange county I will come here. The excellent food is worth the price and the staff is wonderful

“Amazing Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

This is definitely worth $35 per person. This restaurant is what fine dining is all about! Amazing selections from various egg Benedict's, crepes made to order, omelettes, pasta made to order, as well as large shrimp already peeled, crab legs opened up you don't have to crack, duck, prime rib, and amazing desserts and much more. The service is impeccable your silverware is replaced each time you finish a plate of food, not even Taps or Orange Hill does this, plus they have a kids buffet. They also have a Jazz Quartet, also it is not chaotic here, very serene, worth going more than once. It is wonderful.
