Food was good, that was not an issue at all. Long wait to get in- even with reservation. A group that was waiting as we arrived said they had been waiting for their reservation for an hour and they left before being seated. We waited nearly 45 just for apps, what we finally got a table. Some of the app orders were wrong when brought out, Then we waited quite a while for entrees as well (which as I said were good). The main issue we had was really poor service from the time we walked in.

Husband’s steak came out cold and was brought out the wrong vegetables. His clams casinos were watery. I ordered the Cappelini with a chicken cutlet and instead I was given 2 chicken cutlets with a small side of pasta. The Caesar salad was warm and wilted. Pretty disappointed being we have been there before and never had any issues. We won’t be back anytime soon.

The salad and service was very good.
The entre (pasta bouillabaisse) was a bit flavorless.

Service was great food was ok, I hadn’t been in a couple of years. The pork chop was different from my last visit I would recommend going back to the recipe from two years back.

Great ambiance& the food was delicious! I do not think the Shrimp cocktail is worth the price point. Other than that, brunch was perfect & I 100% recommend it.

I asked the server to switch my original cocktail for a mimosa, which had not been brought out to the table yet. The server then brought the original cocktail up to my table and tried telling me it was too late to switch my drink because the bartender already made it.

Love the normal Sunday brunch. I realize this was hard considering the times we are in. Some food was cold and prime rib was tuff and dry.

Was excited to be able to visit Club 31 again since we had enjoyed brunch there often before the closures. It was chaotic and loud probably because of the drink specials and the food wasn't up to its pre-closure goodness. The staff seemed like no one was in control and the front door wasn't unlocked for about 10 minutes after they were supposed to be open. Had to call them to get them to open.

Too bad, because this was a great place and location, but we are definitely going to think carefully before returning.

Excellent food and ambiance.
Service could use improvement. Was over 10 minutes before the waiter stopped at table, we nearly got up and left for waiting so long. Waiter rarely stopped by during the meal. For the quality of the experience otherwise, would have expected better and more attentive service.
