I was greeted immediately and quickly escorted to a table outside, as I requested. It was the perfect day and ambiance. I invited my friend and she loved the food: she ordered the crab cakes and grapefruit brûlée. I sure we’ll both happily come back again.

Simple ask but NO not simple for the pizza maker that day…lol. Ham on pizza twice- we were over it. Condensation dripped on to food from pitcher several times and a to-go order forgotten on the bill. I felt bad cause it was my selection. I try to support CLE food places but the service is always suspect. May just cook at home from now on.

Bananas foster French toast was two full slices of brioche bread topped with carmelized bananas and whipped cream--very good. Two omelettes also got rave reviews. Service was slow--it took us two full hours from start to finish, but that seems to be the norm just about everywhere these days.

The basket of pastries has been taken off the menu (WHY?!) our server recommended a cinnamon roll which we ordered to share. Food arrived in a timely manner but was disappointing. I love the Occhio di bu and what was served to me was not it. The tomato broth was more like a paste, there were no ceci beans and it had a lot red bell peppers in it. The cinnamon roll was not great either unfortunately. The duck fat potatoes were still amazing thankfully. I had great conversation with friends and it felt good to be out so it was still a nice brunch.

We were definitely forgotten about. Restaurant was half full at the time. Server and some guy, maybe hostess, kept reassuring us our food would be out soon, but obviously did not oversee that properly. Never asked if we still wanted it or offered us any compensation for the long wait.
