Christmas Day buffet: Top of the Mark or Crown Room in the Fairmont? (sorry to ask this so early!)

I'm sorry to ask this before Thanksgiving, but my parents have been hassling me since JULY so I need to get this sorted!

I tried looking for regular restaurants, but couldn't find any doing the traditional turkey and stuffing dinner (non-negotiable for my folks). It's my parents first time visiting me here, so I want to give them a great impression of San Francisco and would like somewhere with nice decor, nice ambience etc. They like the finer things in life, so to speak, so I thought that a buffet in one of the posh hotels would tick all these boxes.

Most reviews on here favour Top of the Mark for normal buffets, but I heard that the Fairmont goes all-out with the Christmas decor, and that's a big plus. Their menu looks much broader too. If anybody had any opinions either way I would really, really appreciate it! Thanks :)
