While the setting of the Rotunda, prominently featured in the photos, is even more spectacular in person, the food was not up to what was hoped. It was immense in variety, but short on flavor. Frankly, it was bland and boring. I know for a...More

When you can afford to dine here for Sunday Brunch, do it. The menu is ridiculous. The Jefferson is a whole other review. Special occasion for sure.

We really enjoyed visiting the Jefferson Hotel. Chose restaurant for the great reviews on the hamburgers, but the Breakfast menu won out with the Coconut French Toast and the omelets. Food was great as well as the service. Our waiter, Jonathan, was very informative about...More
