All of the egg dishes came out ice cold, like straight out of the refrigerator ice cold. There were 4 of us and 3 dishes had to be sent back. Our 4th diner was done eating by the time our food came back out and food had simply been reheated, not remade. The eggs for the Benedict were now practically hard boiled. A bit disappointed and hoping it was just an "off" morning.

Two pieces of brisket not eatable- one was a slab of FAT. Slow delivery of our meal.

I love the simplicity of the menu, but yet a good variety. The simplicity assured better attention to detail and freshness. The service was good and will be returning to try different items.

The charcuterie platter was delicious. The different items and flavors satisfied the 6 different tastes of our group. It was creative and done in-house which makes it even better. Most of the group got burgers (pimento cheese as well as bacon cheddar) and said that the burgers were outstanding and they surely looked the part. I got the mussels and they were delicious. If there is one negative it is that the broth the mussels are cooked and served in has been changed. The coconut curry was really good, but I absolutely LOVED the old version which was white wine, garlic, onions, chorizo and baby tomatoes. I don't mind change and I really like mussels, but maybe it was that addition of chorizo that my taste buds really liked! I am sorry that the restaurant wasn't crowded early, but this really helped us to be able to hear conversation among the six of us. The service was fabulous and attentive and the food was much more than delicious.

The food was spectacular, everything was so flavorful and exquisitely prepared I dare say this has been my favorite meals of our 2021 Coolinary date series (also they have a great weekend brunch we plan to try out soon)! Our server was also so attentive and friendly, she made the experience that much more enjoyable.

I actually ate here twice in one week, once with my husband, the other with my mother. Absolutely unbelievable. Maybe because I haven’t been out to eat in so long, I didn’t remember how amazing this kind of food tastes but holy moly. They have a new executive chef and the man is the 8th wonder. Ive never had pork chops like that in my life.

See y’all again soon.

The Pan Fried pork chop was delicious, however the Shrimp and beans were barely warm and virtually no flavor.

Our brunch was delicious. We started with the basket which included biscuits and cornbread waffles. We then had the honey cluckin' biscuit, the Seoul Burger and the short ribs which was the special of the day. All of our dishes were really good. We would highly recommend Brown Butter.
