A word from Saint Genevieve
Saint Genevieve is where social food meets social cocktails in a communal setting. Our patrons enjoy a relaxed vibe with chill lounge music, where they gather with friends during happy hour for an eclectic mix of cocktails, as well as small plates they can share. Later in the evening, we offer a more upbeat atmosphere with a DJ on certain nights. Our Sunday Brunch is a must that offers an extensive Bloody Mary Bar, Carafes of Mimosas in a variety of flavors, an a la carte Brunch Menu, and DJ. We are 21+ during all business hours.

    Had a reservation for 10 people at 1:30 got there 40 minutes before and asked the hostess if we could have the reservation for 15 instead of 10. Her response was that they did not have 5 extra chairs. Really? Such a nice place and you do not have 5 extra chairs? Had everyone standing up around a cocktail table. We had fun but the chair situation was VERY disappointing.

    You should make reservations; however, make sure you show up - you wouldn't want your credit card charged for not showing up. The place was very busy, crowded, loud and yet we had an awesome time. Food was great (at least what we had) in addition, the mimosas were ultimately the best. 4 different flavors ($10) each for a carafe. One cannot beat that price. Excellent!! I will be back!!

    This is a great spot for ladies, groups, friends, celebrations. I'm glad I read the reviews, because guests are only allowed a 2 hour limit at their tables. Due to popularity, reservations are necessary. I made our reservations for 3 pm, there was a little bit of a wait because it was crazy busy. The location is great and the view is beautiful (dying to come in the evening). The food was good. I was not in the mood for breakfast at 3:30 pm and would've loved the option to order from the standard menu, instead I had to order from the brunch menu. On the flip side, Orange Mango Mimosa's were yummy and my waffle battered sausages were delish. No complaints! Ran into a bunch of friends so that was a plus! The drag show was awesome!

    The brunch was a good place for a girls brunch. The food came out really fast. Which gave us plenty of time to eat lunch leisurely. They book brunches in two hour intervals, so towards the end of our two hours We felt our waitress getting antsy, but she didn't rush us out. Everyone had fun and our waitress was really nice, and efficient.

    I've never been here for food before so was surprised to see it at the list of one of the more popular places to go for brunch. Thought I'd try it out due to the good reviews, and while I did see that people commented on the noise level, it was way louder than I had anticipated. We are upper 20s young women and enjoy a lively brunch scene, but the music was so loud that we had to shout to conversate, and even then it was hard to hear yourself think, let alone hear the other person talk. The bloody mary bar was awesome, the food was great, and the service was just "eh", but the sound level made it so I won't return for brunch here again. But if you want to get your club on while eating your brunch, this is your spot.

    Great Brunch! A lively fun crowd. Don't club anymore but reminded me of my clubbing days but with great food added. Flavored Mimosa's all that! They don't do the bottomless any more where you could switch flavors but at $10 a carafe you can afford to try more than one flavor - we tried two. Both Great! West Ave is a great brunch destination - I am splitting Sunday brunches between St. Gen's and Del Frisco's which is just a few doors over - with Benjy's and Chelsea's Grill in the mix.

    This is a great Sunday brunch venue. It is unclear from the reviews I read beforehand, but they have three seatings for Sunday brunch. There is one at 11, one at 1 and one at 3. We made reservations for the 11 seating. Things were slow in the restaurant, but fun. When we left around 1, things had picked up and it was a very energetic crowd with the DJ playing fun music. When I go back, I will be sure to plan for the 1 or 3 seating when the energy level is higher.

    My wife and I had gone to brunch at St. Genevieve on almost a weekly basis for over a year (we even had our post-wedding brunch there), but it started getting too packed about 6 months ago. Good for them, bad for us. We always had a great time there. This past weekend we had visitors in from out of town, so we went for old-times sake. My usual brunch dish was not as good as it used to be. It looked very hastily prepared and seemed like it might have sat out a while. Everyone else's dishes were fine. Overall, it wass the usual St. G's brunch scene - a fun time, good drinks, and that's why we were there.

    Went to Saint Genevieve's for a celebratory brunch with my girlfriends. The food was fabulous and we loved the Blackberry Lavender mimosa. The atmosphere was perfect for our girls get-together, however at about noon the music became so loud that we were practically screaming across the table at each other. I understand that Sunday Brunch is a more upbeat/sometimes party event, but the music was simply too loud, causing everyone in the restaurant to have to become equally loud. Other than the music, we had a wonderful time and would come back.

    Brunch at Saint Genevieve was excellent. I really liked the reservation option to guarantee my party of 6 no wait. Mary, our server, took great care of us. The options for mimosas were delicious and fairly priced at $10/carafe. There's a full body Mary bar, but none of my party took advantage of it. The entire menu was your typical heavier brunch fare, but everything was cooked very well and high quality. Prices were right in the $10-15/plate range, which I expected having been to Saint Genevieve at night before. I'd definitely go back!

    The host took us to our table, which had ants surrounding the area. The manager moved us to another table, but unfortunately the waitress Kayla wasn't to please of us being rerouted to her area. It was our first time at this place & she gave us attitude for asking her questions on what to choose off the menu. All six of us was charged three separate times for three different amounts. I personally think this wasn't a accident, waitress Kayla couldn't possible be that show. Again not one person but all six of us was charged three separate charges. My meal was 40.00, but I was charged 112.00. I suggested this place & Kayla made it a nightmare to remember. Over charged & Poor customer service.

    Made a reservation for Sunday brunch based on friend's recommendation. Had heard it was very popular for brunch, but didn't know much else about St. Gen. Was surprised by the high energy club feel when we walked in. Perhaps not the most suitable place to celebrate a 60 yr old birthday party, but we ended up having a great time! The food and service were great and our party enjoyed the carafes of mimosas! All had a good time, especially the birthday boy!
