    The hotel grounds are beautiful and while the menu is limited what I ate was delicious. Service was prompt and food came out quick. There were some families enjoying the hotel grounds while I was there, so you do get that, but nothing that was overly bothersome.

    I booked Thanksgiving brunch with my family to enjoy a special treat. I chose the restaurant for the atmosphere and views from within the dining room and the quality of the food. I’ve been there many times. I confirmed my reservation verbally and increased it from 4-6 guests over the phone. When we arrived they did not have the reservation for 6 and almost did not seat us. We were then sat out in a large ballroom with no other guests. We were there around 1.25 hours and there were open tables in the restaurant. We were not seated in the restaurant with the live music and ambiance, which was booked well in advance. It was $641.33 for 6 people have brunch in an empty ballroom. Note: The wait staff was fantastic. Very disappointing since we were hosting two other couples (family).

    We had a wonderful brunch here a couple weeks ago. We were in San Diego for homecoming at UCSD. It was within walking distance. The food and service was wonderful. The ambience was relaxing and beautiful.

    Our brunch was perfect. Coffee is excellent and always refilled. Food took some time to come out but we were in no rush and the place is so beautiful that we were happy to be spending the time there. When it came out, the food was excellent. The crispy chicken sandwich with fries was particularly delicious. Sounds ordinary but they do a superb job with it. We would definitely eat there again, even if not staying in the hotel.

    Nice attentive service. Breakfast dishes arrived long after expected and seemed to have been sitting out, perhaps in a steam table array, and assembled for our plates, rather than having been made to order as one would have imagined from the delay.

    Went there for Mother’s Day brunch, and really though the food would be fresh. The salads and seafood cups had been sitting for quite some time and were just about the opposite of fresh. The service was below average. We had to remind staff to pickup the plates, and nobody told us where to go for brunch or if we wanted any coffee. Lastly, we were charged for over 21 meal when we did not drink. I’ve tried to get a ahold of the food and beverage manager, but she won’t return my call. * Beware of charges*

    We enjoyed the Mother's Day brunch at the beautiful Estancia Hotel and Spa. The buffet offered was amazing! Omelet station, pancake station (which was a hit with the kids!), pasta, frittatas, several different choices of breakfast meats, potatoes, prime rib, ribs, salads, charcuterie, pastries, desserts and the fresh seafood was to die for! The grounds and the ambience was wonderful. Cannot wait to try the food during a non-holiday visit. Thank you!

    We had a lovely brunch for Mother’s Day and the touch to pick out your table flowers was so cool! I think there were too few servers as we had to wait for clearing every time, but overall it was very nice.

    We went for Mother’s Day brunch and the food was great. I just wish there were a better variety of desserts. Our server was very attentive and first but the last half hour forgot all about us. I had to search someone out twice. It was a gorgeous Mother’s Day setup, outside and flowers for mom.

    DO NOT make a reservation for this restaurant on here, the restaurant does not take reservations. We had a girls day planned and I made reservations, however when we got there, the hostess informed us they do not take reservations. We were able to get food to go, but it was not the same experience and the food was not very good.

    There were literally 7 items on the menu. The strawberry salad was the size of a side salad, the chicken was tough and very uninspired. Will not be coming back.

    The service was great but the food had clearly been hanging out under a heat lamp for a while. We also had a table outside in the dark very close to a sulfur spout. We had a young son and folks were great about it but when his fries never showed up and our heat lamp food arrived first things got tricky. We chalked it up to folks are doing the best they can during a pandemic thanksgiving meal.
