I understand that it gets turned into a nightclub sometimes, but during dinner service, the music should be turned down just a little bit so we can actually hear the person across from us. Other than that, the food was amazing as well as the drinks. Our server was handling the whole restaurant and did a great job at accommodating our large party.

The chicken was dry and served with oily veggies, my partner had steak which was tough and burned, and the frites were all the small pieces that should never make it onto a plate. Overall terrible food

Basic food. cocktails pretty average and expensive. Service annoying : the waitress stoped by 6 times to our table during our lunch to ask if we wanted something or if everything was good. Really too much. It was like she was part of the lunch.

Perfect venue for a casual brunch. Funky mid-century décor as a great backdrop to an enjoyable meal. The brunch menus is small but covers all the bases. The service was friendly and genuine and the food was well-prepared. The scones arrived warm and scrumptious -- although on the small side for $12. A glitch in the coffee order timing was graciously rectified with complimentary baked goods. Loved the fact that guests are not rushed and no maximum table "rental period" is imposed, unlike so many other venues.

I ordered the steak frites asking for the steak to be done medium rare. When the steak arrived it was beyond rare and just plain raw. The waiter took it back to the kitchen and the chef agreed they had not cooked the steak.

So. The room was super nice, but the music bumped till 2am and kind of sucked. And we asked for a bucket of ice which we were given, but didn’t notice till the next morning that the ice bucket had a green scour pad in the bottom of it. Kind of gross because we used that ice in our drinks the night before. Nice room but be careful

A last minute dinner date on a Monday. Place was actually quite busy but we got ourselves a nice table by the windows. The roasted chicken was good as was the steak et frites, all presented beautifully. A little on the pricey side, but would consider coming back.

The service was terrible. We were asked to hold our cutlery while we waited for our main meal after our scones. Had to ask for the drinks we ordered multiple times, they didn’t even bring a spook to stir in the milk. The food took 45 mins to arrive. It wasn’t even very good or warm. Not a good experience.

We come here a lot or we used to before Covid. It was nice to come back and have my regular meal. It was a little chilly sitting by the large window and the food took a little longer. The food was delicious except my poached yolks weren’t completely runny. Which is why I didn’t give 5 star but the hollandaise is the best! And the bread and potatoes are sooo yummy.

I had a brunch to leave my kids and return to Europe for 9 months and the food was terrible. I am certain that the English muffins were toasted the day before or at least very early that morning. Every meal was served cold! The only thing good was the cocktails but it was 40m before we received the first order and the juice boxes for the kids, that we eventually had to remind the waiter to bring. I will not eat here again, the service is not good and the kitchen is worse. It’s too bad because they did reduce my bill but I would have paid double if they delivered what we had ordered timely and at a decent quality. The brunch took 3.5 hours, the last 40 minutes was when the food arrived. My son is a server and he was not impressed.

The server was new, but he was very friendly and comfortable. The food took a long time to come out from the kitchen, however and the server acknowledged. He also forgot to bring a cup of coffee, so when I reminded him he apologized, brought the coffee and did not charge for it.
I like the decor. Booth was comfortable, but the noise level was loud with a full house.
