We had a great brunch a few months ago to the point that my grandaughter wanted to go there for her birthday dinner. Service was extremely slow. Brunch yes, dinner no.

I have loved everything I've ordered at Great Maple. My most recent was a vegan dish- trumpet mushrooms with barley and veggies- really delicious! Others in our party also found their entrees to be outstanding- this restaurant is always a treat!

Beautifully prepared comfort food that is much healthier than typical comfort food. Everything was delicious, craft drinks amazing, and service could not have been better. Best off: No TV screens and no loud music.

If you plan on eating here, make a reservation; otherwise, expect a long wait. Great food! Noisy when it's crowded. Friendly hardworking staff, but could use more staff when it's crowded. Worth going when it's not so busy!

We went there for brunch and the place was full. Good thing we made a reservation. The place is really cute inside all recently remodeled. The staff was the best, they had free coffee outside for the people on the waiting list. The best chilaquiles I've ever had yummy!!!

I came here on a Saturday at 10:30am with my fiancé. We had reservations for 10:45am and were finally seated at 11:00. It took a while for the server to come to take our drink and food order (it was busy so we didn’t mind the wait). We ordered the Tofu Stack and the Chilaquiles as well as a lavender mimosa (it was ok) and an iced tea. The Tofu Stack was mediocre but the Chilaquiles were delicious! Our drinks never came and we tried to look for our server but he was nowhere to be seen. We managed to flag down another member of their staff to inform them we never received our drinks. Finally, my Mimosa came but my fiancé’s ice tea never did. Our sever finally came to check on us (we were more than halfway done with our meal) and noticed the iced tea was missing. He did not apologize for not having it earlier and eventually brought it. I would have given this place a higher rating if it wasn’t for their service.

Probably the worst service I’ve had in a VERY LONG TIME. I would not recommend this place from here on out. Waitress blatantly ignored my table as well as the rest of the staff. When the waitress decided it was time to fill our cups of coffee (instead of asking us) she went ahead with the giant carafe and almost hit my mom in the face in the process.

Second time there for dinner. Food was fantastic again. Had the gnocchi and mushroom fries as appetiZers. Had bolognese and brisket sandwich. Finished with donut and cheese cake. Food was fantastic again. Service was best I had last time here, this time average. Place was empty, but seemed to rush us through ordering. The drink service is extremely slow. The gnocchi appetizer should come with a serving spoon. Bathrooms are clean but definitely have a bad odor.

This is a great place to have dinner. Easy to get to. Great atmosphere for a date or to go with a group.

Had reservations for a busy Sunday at 1130, arrived early and they did sit us prior to 1130. The wait was well over an hour and it was busy... so being seated prior to our reservation time was amazing.

Donuts are to die for.. def a table must! Did order a Bloody Mary / it was decent but typically on a Sunday brunch you expect a big Bloody Mary with celery bacon etc coming out.. instead it was a small cup. Decent but not completely fulfilled. Overall the service was amazing, server was super nice and took her time explaining things. I personally had the chorizo california- it was a lot more greasy than i anticipated. Yes when you order chorizo you expect it to be.. this was a little beyond. Also we ordered fried banana Pb pancake — that too was delicious.

Would def come back- the entire menu looks delicious!!! And the donuts alone deserve another visit.

I have had a few experiences at great maple for brunch. The food was always good but the service was just okay. Our server for dinner was amazing, he made recommendations and was always checking in on us!

Also, they have happy hour everyday from 5-6pm. I didn’t know that so it was an added bonus to our 5:45 reservation.
