Everything here is delicious. Our party of four had breakfast here two mornings. Each visit was better than the last. I had the Waffle with maple syrup fresh fruit and freshly whipped cream each morning with hot coffee that was refilled before I even thought to ask for more. The staff is friendly, accommodating and yet not intrusive.

The actualy dining room is lovely. The setup is very clean and the food is average. However, it's overpriced. For a buffet breakfast for 4 people the bill was over $90.

We were guests of the Omni Resort and made reservations to celebrate my significant other's birthday. By reading the reviews, we were expecting a lot more than the Dining Room and Menu provided.

The room is nicely decorated and filled with history and the service was average, by not means excellent. For the elegance of the room, it wasn't pleasant looking at where they cook your meal. Another thing that wasn't too special is that this is the same room that serves a buffet or menu breakfast in the morning. Elegant dining should be elegant dining and not a breakfast spot. With all the different rooms at this Resort, you would think that they would select another place to serve Breakfast and reserve this room for "elegant dining".

When making reservations, I mentioned it was a birthday, but when we entered and was seated by the Manager, there was no Happy Birthday greeting or thank you for spending a special occasion with us. The menu leaves a lot to be desired and so does the preparation. We have no problem with costs, but the menu selections were very limited and the meal itself was not worth it. Even when dessert came still no birthday acknowledgement. We started with cocktails and the Martini's came filled only 1/2 a Martini glass. When my mate asked if they were spilled, the waitress told us, all the drinks are pre-measured and that is how they are served. We decided to only have 1 cocktail each. The history and the décor of the room is very nice, but if you dine in elegance as we do, this was not up to that standard by not means in service, attitude or food. We had a much better meal in 1796 Steakhouse at the Omni than in the Crystal Room.

To make this room truly elegant, stop using it for Breakfast, more professional servers, better host or hostess when you arrive, more attention to your reservation requests, don't require watching the preparation or cooking going on along with their conversation, a much better and more appropriate menu selection and definitely a chef who know how to prepare an elegant and deliciously fabulous meal.

We were extremely disappointed and during our next visit wouldn't consider eating dinner in the Crystal Room. We had a fabulous meal in Bedford at 10/09 Restaurant that put this meal to shame. The Chef Nick at the 10/09 was the Chef at the Omni and they need one in the Crystal Room of his caliber. I would not spend your money eating dinner in the "breakfast room" at the prices they charge for a sub-standard menu.

The buffet breakfast was good, but not exceptional for almost $23.00 per person. If you order from the menu, it costs you about the same, but at least it is made fresh for you. We had breakfast the first day, after that, we ordered in our room what we wanted and enjoyed it on the outside balcony. Suggest you do this also as you get more value for your dollars.

The food was fantastic as well as the atmosphere. The service was excellent. We have
eaten here quite a few times since it opened and the service was very good in the beginning but has improved dramatically since it opened. Never had a bad meal here. Recommend it highly.
Plus I love the pictures of all those that visited the Springs in the late 1800's and early 1900's that
adorn the walls.

Feel as if one has stepped back in time in this beautiful dining room. Great service and good variety of delicious cuisine. Very accommodating.
