Perfect for a "power breakfast" as it is the original!! All the food is great and the service is awesome is great too!! When you are an american express platinum cardholder and staying at the hotel (book directly with amex) there is no reason to travel elsewhere with your daily breakfast credit and additional food and beverage credit, room upgrade, 4th night free & so much more . . . certainly there are more economical places to dine but for the perfect atmosphere to relax and have a great conversation it is always something you can count on and you will certainly keep on coming back!!

The food was good. There were not a lot of light bite options but we had a burger and salad. Which worked out. This is somewhat of an upscale hotel coffee shop so even though it was after 8:30 there were a fair amount of little kids running around

This was our first experience at The Regency Bar & Grill. We were staying at the hotel over the weekend, and we ate there three times. We thought the menus were a bit on the limited side, but what we had was nicely prepared. We had lunch, brunch and breakfast, which had three different menus, but had many items in common. The Club sandwich was very tasty, and the fries were cooked and seasoned properly. The bagel and lox plate was nice. Just be prepared to take out a second mortgage.

it is an interesting place to people watch as well. This place is definitely for the beautiful people to see and be seen.

Coffee is $9. Not like good coffee. Like coffee they come around and pour in your cup. It is overpriced and just a bunch of buffet food, nothing special or creative. There are approximately 58 other places in the area to eat with same or better options at a more reasonable price and comfortable setting.

It must have been an off day at The Regency. I do go somewhat regularly and have never experienced the bad service I experienced yesterday. We were sat at our table and then after at least 10 minutes with no server and no water, I had to get up to ask a waiter to come to our table. The service that followed was a bit slower than normal as well.

Expected better service in this restaurant. Their menu prices are inconsistent with their poor service and lack of attention. We stayed at the hotel and had high expectations from their restaurant but the experience was not good. The server never introduced himself, we asked for his name. Our water glasses were not refilled unless we asked. The only times we saw our server was to place our order and to pay our check. No one asked if we needed anything. Will not return. Many other great restaurants to dine instead in NYC.

Hands down the best venue for a breakfast meeting in NYC. Seasoned, colorful and inobstrusive as necessary waitstaff (they’ve seen it all and know what they’re doing). Exceptional preparation of breafast staples (priced like they know what they’re doing: they do). Scrambled eggs and bacon as good as I have ever had (every time). A good place for breafast berries. Eclectic clientele includes recognizable personalities from almost any community you might know: Business, political, financial, swells -domestic and international. And everybody takes it in stride.

It’s a very nice place physically and the noise level allows conversation. Also the servers try to please. But the melon we ordered was inedible - the honeydew wad spoiled - and the other melon was like cardboard. The coffee left on the table for us to pour was cold and the little milk pitcher provided was inadequate and hard to get refilled. Pancakes came with a much too little syrup and my friend who ordered them said they were terrible - very heavy, no fluffiness as if the chef made a mistake with his mix.

I've eaten here several times and the food and service are always good, but the bar is always a disaster. Because the entire back side of the bar is for service only, there is never enough space at the bar to get a drink. The noise from the bar is tremendous, making conversation at the tables quite difficult. They really need to work on reducing the noise level between the two spaces or allow those of us that want a bit of quite conversation to eat in the back room instead of closing it in the evenings.

Hi Kelly, thank you for your feedback. First & foremost, we appreciate your loyalty to our restaurant, and for sharing your concerns. I will share your comments with the team so we can review opportunities to increase seating at the bar & reduce the noise level for a quieter dining experience. Until then, please note in your reservation that you'd like a quiet table so we can ensure you're seated away from the bar. Thank you again for your time & we hope to be of service to you again soon!
