Sat outside on a Sunday morning. The planters create a nice private space. The food was delish and the mimosas were very good!

I did not realize from Open Table this was the restaurant in the DANA Hotel. Had I known, I would not have selected it as a dinner option. The main reason we picked this location was due to the menu on Open Table, imagine my surprise to find out this was not accurate, and menu items/pricing were significantly different. Our service was great, however the value, expectation, and overall quality was not. For 2 ppl, 2 rounds of drinks and 3 apps, we paid just over $100.00. I would have been much happier at an alternate location.

Probably would not go here again... The service was great but the food was average and overpriced... Was hoping with a name like freestyle that it would have been more hip and fun but it was just another hotel restaurant trying to be more than it is...

This is a great place for brunch! Unfortunately, I was not impressed with the service. I arrived about 20 minutes before my friend, but asked to be seated so I could order a drink from the bloody Mary bar while I waited (the bloody Mary was tasty). After being seated I was brought some water, but a waiter did not come after 10 minutes. I finally asked the hostess if she could send someone over. When the waiter finally came, his excuse was that he thought I was part of some gingerbread house building brunch that they were hosting. When I asked what this meant (in case I was interested in the future) he would not elaborate and only asked if I had made a reservation for it. I decided to let it go and proceeded to order my drink. My friend arrived shortly afterwards and the rest of the meal was pretty good. Overall, the food was good, but the service was lacking. Since the food was tasty, I'm willing to give this place another chance as sometimes there are off days, but since the place wasn't very crowded I expected better.
