Food was great, Mother’s Day so expected to be busy, however it was a full hour before we received our food. We had tables behind and across from us that received food before us and we were here prior to them even being sat. Just an omelette and a waffle, shouldn’t take from 2:15-3:09 before getting it. Server was super apologetic and kept checking in with us and he was great, and we were understanding being the day it was, just felt like a manager could’ve stepped in at some point instead of leaving our server to fend for himself.

Very unassuming from the outside but once you are inside it's quite wonderful. This was my first visit and the service, atmosphere and food were exquisite. The Bartenders were awesome and very knowledgeable. I will be visiting again and again.

The food here is always fresh and there are a lot of really good options. Most of what we had was delicious -- the gooey cheddar omelette was very good, the breakfast flatbread was very good, the bacon omelette was very good! The french toast was delicious but I would have been disappointed if we ordered it before we saw it - it's literally one piece of bread (very large) with great toppings---but still one piece of bread. It was a fun breakfast dessert to share, but I wouldn't have been happy if it was a meal I had ordered. The corned beef hash skillet was honestly disgusting. It came with a big glob of fatty corned beef laying on top of it - not even shredded or trimmed - it honestly made me sick to my stomach just to see it. The chipotle coleslaw is on top which means it makes the potatoes in the skillet mushy.....that menu item needs to change. The lamb sandwich was delicious.

I’ve been here quite a few times for dinner where everything was great but this time wasn’t what I expected. I ordered the tomahawk steak to share and it was one of the toughest steaks I’ve ever had. It was so tough that even a steak knife wasn’t sharp enough for it. Honestly, it was terrible and I regret not complaining while still there.

Celebrated my daughter's birthday by starting out at Bistro Joe's for brunch before a girls day at the spa. Food was delicious, our server Jamie was great - efficient, fast, thorough, kept the coffee coming. Was a little cramped on the porch, difficult for guests and servers to get by the tables. Noisy but we could hear each other talk. My daughter selected Bistro Joe's because she had been before and raved about it. Now I will too!

Food was delicious and very fresh - it is a laid back ambiance and it is literally on top of a gourmet grocery store so it is also very convenient to get some goodies on the way out.
Loved it - will definitely go back again!

Happy Hour is a steal! Great small plates for sharing and cheap drinks. The service was a bit neglectful after our food came, but our waters were always refilled and the food came out hot. It would have been nice to have an additional check in from our main waitress shortly after our food came out, but we really enjoyed the atmosphere and didn't really notice that the service was below average.

Our brunch selections were very good. Our only non-positive feedback was that we had to wait in a line to check in, so if you had a reservation, you waited past your seated time just to check in with the hostess.

overall a good meal. Even though the server was attentive, the kitchen got my order wrong. It was remade quickly. However, since it was made quickly not all the cheese was melted and the presentation was a bit sloppy.

Food was cold, no waiter was at our table for 30 min, i had to get up and ask for our food which was cold already, potatoes were like if we were eating fried potato peels like stone, lemonade had a bitter taste as if it was premaid and it was set aside for a day or two to ferment not fresh as they say, they never changed our forks and knifes and didn’t offer to or give us plate we had to eat all the food we ordered with the same plate fork and knifes we had since we got there.

We’ve come for happy hour with our kids for over 2 years and several times for dinner with/without other couples and the experience has ALWAYS been superb! Other than the fact that the food and service is exceptional we really appreciate the continuity. Never have to worry if we will have a good experience!

Our food was wonderful, most of us had steak which was cooked perfectly, and the sides were great too. The ambience was lacking however. It’s a novel idea to sit overlooking the market but
Our party of 6 had difficulty speaking to one another ‘cause it was so loud! Also, the beer menu needs to be updated. One of our guys had to order 3 times cause the beer he wanted was unavailable yet still on the menu.
