  1. The only one I've been to here in LA is the Ritz at the Marina. The food was very good, and the setting was lovely. It was very expensive, but I don't remember how much because someone else paid.

    1. The Universal Hilton has a pretty good spread for the buck ...

      1. Bel Air's isn't a buffet, neither is Peninsula.

        I personally have a germ thing about buffets, just the thought of other people breathing on my food (oy).

        Four Seasons - Great waffle set up and fixings (ice cream, butter, berries). Sushi rolls, 2-3 kinds of fish (they had sword fish a couple months ago), kids section (chicken tenders and mashed potatoes, fries), omelettes.

        Ritz Carlton MDR - Good waffle set up (the berries aren't as nice), great assortment of breads and pastries, bottomless champagne, great coffee, caviar.

        St. Regis Monarch Bch -- Not in LA, but my favorite is St. Regis in Monarch Bch. Really clean. They have pancakes, nice out door seating.

          The best buffet is at the Jonathan Club in Santa Monica, Inn at the Seventh Ray, and Delmonico's!!!

          As for Hotels, well it tough to say... they don't compare to the 3 I listed above ... I would say the Ritz in marina

              Hands down Four Seasons, then the Ritz.

            2. re: barcelona

              The Jonathan Club is a members-only club and not open to the public.

          1. There is no other answer than the Four Seasons BH. Absolutely the best buffet brunch in town and I have been to every single one.

              is the brunch buffet at Four Seasons BH only on sundays or is it daily?

                1. re: tony michaels

                  Another vote for the Four Seasons at Doheny and Burton Way

            2. Not a hotel, but I was impressed with the brunch buffet at Donald Trump's National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes. Champagne, caviar, crab legs, sushi, waffle and omelette station, etc. Good quality food, stunning ocean view, but very expensive.
