    My appetizers were good, the sides we ordered were mediocre at best, and lastly my $14 drink was weak and certainly not worth the price. Beside the good appetizers the staff was the only two things positive, I could say about 9A.

    Food was ok. Ambiance not so much. Music sucked! Like can you please at least put songs with lyrics in them!? Sheesh Service was ok. The strawberry mojito that I ordered sucked. Too much lime and mint leaves. Oh and just for the record there was dripping water on me from the pipes in the ceiling. Like really!! Really tho! We moved tables 2 times. So annoying. Would not come back again. Not my cup of tea.

    I selected 9A for a Mother's Day brunch because I had been there weeks previous for a birthday brunch. My mom is still young and energetic and I wanted to bring her somewhere that was hip and entertaining. My original reservation was for 4 people and last minute we had an unexpected addition. The staff at 9A was very accommodating with the addition and had us seated in less than 15 minutes. The service, food and music were excellent. My mom and aunt were very satisfied and definitely want to come back again.

    I went to this brunch off a recommendation from my roommate who loved it. She told me the food was amazing and it was everything included for 32 bucks. I took my boss there for brunch expecting a 32 dollar brunch with drinks included. Obviously, that didn't happen because as soon as we walked in we were notified of the price change. We ate because we were already there and food was really good. However the music was too loud, and it was way overpriced and won't be returning and neither will my roommate or any of her friends. It's too expensive for Harlem!!!!

    Nice close local spot for drinks or a quick bite. Looks like it would be good for dates as well. Our waitress was nice, but it felt like she was new to waitressing. She forgot stuff from our order, couldn't remember or pronounce the wine I ordered, and had the wrong amount on the bill. She fixed the bill and again was nice. Ambiance is good with lots of TVs to watch games, but the SEATING ARRANGEMENT IS HORRIBLE. They have tables with chair that go with these couches, but the couches are so low you have to reach up to get to the table. Spacing definitely wasn't thought out and several area didn't have room to pass through in between tables. Make it easy and sit at the bar

    I would say, I enjoy the evening and the pre fix menu that was set up. Great set and ambience for the evening. The waitress was very courteous and helpful. Food came to the table at a reasonable time. Just a great experience overall.

    Was here for brunch and had the crab cake Benedict. The brunch is $32 pp with unlimited mimosas, bloody mary's, bellini's or sangrias. The food was great but the drinks were not great. My friends had the sangria and they said it was too tart. I had the mimosa's but was cool at best and more orange juice than needed.

    This restaurant had great vibes friendly staff especially the manager Cory. I had ordered a rack of ribs which were too salty for my taste so I asked for something else and there was no hesitation with my new order. The food was beyond great. They also have an excellent cocktail menu. The restaurant decor was very comfy as well

    Not your typical sports bar grub; very, very delicious food. Decadent Mac & Cheese is a MUST HAVE! The service was poor; we waited almost 1 hr, after being seated, before our server acknowledged us; and thereafter, had to search for her many times during the evening, which took away from our experience.
