Our server (I wish I asked his name!) was very professional, very pleasant. We had a very safe lovely brunch outdoor (4 ppl). Had the eggs Benedict, blood Mary, Beet salad, chicken salad, avocado toast, truffle fries, prosciutto platter. Good portions. Fresh. Nicely presented

We had the Crab Benedict and the Waffle with a Duck Leg. Both were great.
We sat outside, there was a heat lamp and covering. Both kept us warm.
Service was really good too.
Overall, definitely recommend.

The brunch food was excellent! We braved the cold and ate outside due to the pandemic- but it was worth it!

It’s wonderful to still be able to enjoy one of our favorite NY dining spots during lockdown. Too many have closed, too many don’t have outdoor dining. The food was outstanding as always, service warm and friendly, and they did the most they could to make you comfortable under these trying circumstances.

I’ve been going here for years. Tonight was such a disappointment. Bread was not fresh. Cheese was stale in the salad. Potatoes were greasy Not sure if they changed the chef but he needs to go back to culinary school.
Tonight was just expensive and bad.
Sadly i will remove this restaurant from my list of go to’s

Surprisingly disappointing and rib eye was only redeeming value.

Appetizers - underwhelming. Under seasoned, missing ingredients listed on menu. Stale bread.

Meal - ribeye was delicious.

Dessert - poorly presented, pannacotta missing shortbread.

Service - poor. Hostess/server was nice but barely came to table and didn’t know menu.

Ambience - empty restaurant, I appreciated plastic barriers.

Time for major overhaul. So sad. Used to be one of my favorite places.

Nice food, service was incredibly slow and not attentive at all. It took more than 20 minutes for our server to notice we needed a refill on drinks & if we liked our food.

Searching for a Soho Weekend Brunch location - Aurora was a perfect choice. Indoor and outdoor seating (preferred outdoor but it began to rain.....). Inside our table felt intimate and the lighting and atmosphere was great. The food was amazing with great combinations of flavors. One reservation: No HALF-and-HALF for the coffee....just milk. An incredible oversight. For a coffee drinker, that's a disappointment.

Again, otherwise no complaints, only praises.

Why no cream for the coffee??

Sat outdoors and it was pretty cute. The food was amazing, if you're considering a light little lunch, I definitely recommend the Tuscan Kale salad from the lunch menu, the one with the butternut squash, amazing!!! Prosciutto Benedict was also great, look forward to trying the burger next time I'm there.

The food was so good! We ordered the steak frites and the cacio e Pepe and it was one of the best cacio e pepes I’ve ever had. Staff are super friendly and place was relatively empty when we went.

The food was so mediocre. Crab Benedict was forgettable, just nothing to the sauce and very little crab meat. The burger was a dense piece of meat and onions and really nothing to rave about. Wish I tried the pasta instead but so not worth the money.
