Adore the Fairmont, particularly the Fountain restaurant. The staff are wonderful especially Kim - it is so lovely to see the same people every year! Thank you for helping make our stay so enjoyable. Hope to visit again soon.

Although the Saturday menu is a little limited unless one wants to partake of the "brunch", our group of seven had a great breakfast. Everything cooked to order, came out at the same time and was hot. Coffee at the table so we didn't have to be bothered by a hovering waiter. And Kim, the hostess was wonderful. We will... More

A well run, well organized place with an extensive menu. The food came up quickly and well done. The food was a combination of healthy and comfort. Impressed how well they could deliver food hot and on time

The Fountain Restaurant located in the Fairmont Hotel San Jose has a great breakfast buffet. Their Sunday Brunch is famous. The staff is amazing and will add to the experience that is The Fountain.

The food here was good but as is typical of most hotels, the food is overpriced for a "regular" meal. We did enjoy it though and ate there twice. The service was great too!

I thought since the name of the restaurant, they would be open late at night for dessert. Not. We went there for breakfast after staying at the Fairmont. It was okay, but when we were leaving we saw the brunch that looked great. Our service was great and all of the staff was very attentive. I would like to come... More

I visited this hotel/restaurant one year ago. I felt that the service had improved. Kim, the hostess, still doesn't smile, but she was pleasant and seated me right away. My wait person and her assistants were all really nice too. I had bacon and poached eggs and it was fine...nothing jumped out as memorable, except the price. The meal really... More

The breakfast buffet was decent but a little pricey. There was chicken sausage, eggs Benedict, yogurt, pastries, potatoes and there was more! The coffee was amazing but what lowered my rating was the price
