    We encountered several waiters, none of them seemed aware of specials or cocktail menu. Brought the wrong wine, they corrected it 15 mins later. Didn’t bring salad with correct topping. By now I’m scratching my head because for a iconic place I was definitely expecting a different experience by now. Prices were on the higher end even with inflation. Our food was average for a diner. It wasn’t a horrible experience but definitely not what I was expecting. I would come back and order dessert to go for a special occasion. But for dining in again I would reconsider

    As a Latino family dining in this diner, we felt so out of place by the stares we received. The hostess was unwelcoming and the server did not come in to check up on us, we had to keep asking for things. I'm not sure that I would recommend this place to dine at.

    Service was great. Food was ok. Dessert was excellent! Our party of 9 tried the Pink champagne cake, coconut cream pie, banana cream pie and count lime cake. All were very good! It’s a very unique place. You don’t go there for the food, you go for the ambiance and the dessert.

    As a vegan, the options were poor. Very expensive for over-cooked vegetables. The farmers market salad was tasty, though expensive. Cute ambiance and good cocktail though.

    The food arrived to the table cold and none of the meats were cooked as requested EX: Asked for meat med rare and there was zero pink. This is the 3rd experience we’ve noticed a decline in the food. Sad because we love the place but at this price point I think we are likely throwing in the towel on future visits.
