    For $70 I trying to figure out what was of value? - the meat … cold - tuna tartare … tasteless - the shrimp … the bag is $20 at Costco - no omelette station or anything unique - poached eggs … serve on regular toast bread The worst part was cleanliness. Went to the bathroom… over flowing garbage people we putting it on the counter top that was all wet. Toilet paper all over the floor. One out of 2 toilets out of order and it was kept wide open to see it was overflowing. Wow. After Covid. This is more than a safety issue. Best part when I complained all they did was remove our Caesar’s - which were more water than anything else! The manager even asked me what he should do. Seriously? A fairmont. Do not waste your time! Going to a regular everyday breakfast place is FAR worth your while. My father worked at the Fairmont for 45 years… how disgraceful!

    I’m honestly so disappointed in my experience. I’ve been at the Wilfred restaurant many times but this time, it was very bad. I made a reservation well in advance for Mother’s Day as I knew my family would come and visit. Our reservation was at 1:30pm and honestly, the buffet was very cold and the quality was lacking. The price of 105$ per person was not at all worth it. If the restaurant cannot ensure freshness and consistency for groups that have later reservations, they should simply be removed and not offer tables after 12pm. Finally, our server was nice and definitely felt bad about the situation, it was not his fault and he remained very patient and polite.

    Tenth year for Mother’s Day brunch, food offerings have suffered. Service was average. Still the best Mother’s Day brunch in town.

    Wilfred's at the Chateau Laurier offers charm in a beautiful setting. The restaurant staff is very friendly, welcoming, attentive, yet unobtrusive. Our waiter Oleg was wonderful, as was the charming brunette hostess at the reception area out infront of Wilfred's. They both went out of their way to make the experience special for my mother on her 91st birthday. A lovely table was set for us infront of a window. Another kind waiter helped us return from the buffet, carrying my mother's plate as she took the few steps down to our table. Unfortunately, the meal did not live up to the rest of the experience. We had the buffet brunch which includes hot and cold options and some sweets. The chef serving at the hot station was charming. However, while the hot buffet appeared generous including fritata, Eggs Benedict with salmon, roast pork, gnochi, ratatouille, stewed lamb, french toast and crepes, most of the dishes lacked flavor. We did enjoy the pork belly, bacon, pasta and quinoa salads, baby spinach leaves, and the chocolates. There were 3 very ordinary cheeses put out with a regular dinner knife, no cheese knife, one sort of simple cracker and breadsticks. There was sliced bread, nothing special, no buns or bagels. The arugula and mixed greens in the salad bar seemed a bit sad. In the whole, the food struck us as very ordinary and certainly not up to the mark for rhe price or for the Chateau.

    Rapport qualité prix n’est pas au rendez-vous. Aucune ambiance. Loin derrière le calibre du brunch du Chateau Frontenac. Quelle déception pour ce prix
