Slow and forgetful service. When you order one item and the accompaniment doesn't arrive it has a negative effect on the whole meal. No coffee top-up either.
"Sorry, a lot of people arrived together" was the excuse. I didn't see that. It was filling up but that's what happens doesn't it?

Stopped her for breakfast on a recent family trip to NYC. The setting is nice, food was average, service was poor. Can't understand, our waitress only had 2 tables, restaurant was not busy and could have been more attentive. Waited 15 minutes to top up my coffee - she must have gone on her own coffee break and left customers waiting. Service is everything, for the value go somewhere else.

While staying at The Lucerne, every morning we had our breakfast at Nice Matin, a French restaurant. As guest of the Lucerne hotel you get a 15% discount for breakfast. A lot of choice varying from Continental to American breakfast, very tastful breakfast, quick and friendly service. I can recommend this restaurant also for dinner: meat or fish, all main dishes were great with an eye for presentation and a good combination of flavours. Troughout the restaurant there's a nice atmosphere.

My daughters and I love the Lucerne, but all three of us rated our breakfast here very poor. My breakfast potatoes were cold. Didn't bother sending them back because they were tasteless anyway. Daughter had NY heart attack. She said it wasn't very good and echoed my opinion on the potatoes. My spinach and mushroom fritatta was very mediocre, nothing special. The belgian waffle was just okay. You'd probably get a more satisfying breakfast almost anyplace else for less money. It seems the kitchen is just not trying because they have a guaranteed flow of patrons. Two thumbs down.
