I’ve checked in at SEDA Vertis before, a few months ago. Pleasant experience. Great rooms. But, this will be a review specific to the breakfast & lunch buffet today, not focusing on rooms this time.
Overall, impressive staff at Misto restaurant, lobby level of SEDA.
From the chefs assigned, to the food counters, to the roaming staff, everyone was polished without being overly formal. Prompt yet not panicky nor stressed. Sophisticated yet warm.
Most impressive was how they anticipated needs. All Managers (both kitchen and dining floor) were roaming frequently, to see if anyone needed additional help. Very proactive.
Example of initiative/thoughtfulness:
I left my table to check the food spread for lunch, leaving my phone charged on the floor. When I came back, my phone was placed on an extra chair. I learned after, that it was because of the thoughtfulness of one of the managers, Ann Aquino.
Dining Staff to Commend:
Ann Aquino (Manager)
* All of the staff members were great. Apologies, but these were the only names I could remember.
Miracle (hope they consider her for a dining position)
Also, special compliments to the following leaders: Executive Chef (Chef Kerpatrik) and Food & Beverage Manager (Sammy Rosales) for being visible on the floor, monitoring and anticipating needs. They are impressively and surprisingly hands-on, for their level.
Breakfast & Lunch buffet spread was varied enough, different cuisines/regions represented. Chefs per counter were great, pleasant and prompt.
Breakfast Food standouts:
- Dried fish with vinegar with garlic rice.
- Sushi (yes, it surprisingly works as breakfast).
- Egg station was very efficient.
Lunch Food standouts were:
- roast beef. Best cooked roast beef so far, in all the hotels I’ve stayed in, in the world, that served it.
- Their tempura vegetables.
- Sisig, probably the only hotel so far that offered it as part of the buffet.
- Misto at SEDA has some of the most numerous ice cream flavors to choose from.
- Bubble gum ice cream - the blue color and flavor are both delightful.
- Their detox water: water infused with either vegetables or fruits. Sounds simple but so few hotels overseas offer them (they should).
- Their soup station.
- I love that they offer and celebrate local/Filipino desserts like “turon” and find a twist on it (mango sauce), etc.
Misto restaurant at SEDA Vertis Hotel is a great option, if you want to have an elevated dining experience. The restaurant is spacious. Interior design, calming while modern. Staff is efficient and urgent, without losing the warmth. Food is of good quality and has enough regional variety.
If you have an important meeting (or personal event) in the Quezon City area and want to impress, Misto restaurant (and SEDA Vertis Hotel as a whole) is where you need to be. It is the most sophisticated hotel in this side of the capital city.
Also, check out their newly opened bar on the 24th Floor called ‘Straight Up.’ Excellent and creative bartenders. Efficient dining staff. Present, prompt, excellent, friendly and proactive manager, Mari. And, the highest views of the city, probably of any bar here in the Quezon City area.
