I’ve always loved Great Maple and this is my favorite location. I’m not sure how but the food and the service got even better when they were already top notch. I had a beautiful and delicious time. Definitely wanna go there again

We had a comfortable and relaxing outdoor brunch. Portions are generous, food is fresh and presented well. The French Toast was amazing and I don't even like French toast that much. Service is quick and attentive. Will definitely go again

Food is very expensive for what you get ($21 for chilaquiles?). It does taste good, but it’s not the best value.

Disappointing!

From the name of the establishment I was expecting delicious pancakes but, was disappointed when I couldn't cut them with a fork; sticky, slimy and not particularly flavorful

Your huge portions were shocking to our group of 5. My slice of quiche was dried out except for the very middle.
Your prices have risen hugely.
We loved our waitress, who was delightful, on top of her game snd very accommodating!
Won’t be back for awhile
Sorry, you were one of my favorite places.

Always great food.

Sunday afternoon meal. Surly service from wait staff. Hostess very nice. Maybe she was having a bad day, but her energy was pretty off putting.

An interesting place with some interesting dishes. IMHO a bit on the expensive side for a breakfast joint, but there were a ton of people so they must be doing something right.

Had a great experience right away, all employees were accommodating and polite. Gnocchi brussel sprouts were on point and the ribs were fire. Check it out if you have yet to.

Food was good but they were short staffed but our waiter who doubled as bar tender was very good (when he had a chance). Restaurant week menu and food was excellent.

The service sucked. The waitress was terse. Not sure if I have that kind of a person working at my restaurant. Though I’m not dealing with today’s labor climate.

It is no surprise that Great Maple is one of the top 100 restaurants in the US for brunch. The styling of the dishes is complementary and playful and is truly not for the faint hearted. We at breakfast the first visit and then had lunch on the second. The short rib hash with two poached eggs was a stellar combination of flavors. It was a huge portion made smaller by the fact that we had shared an order of the delightful, light, and airy powdered beignets. I am sure that we were covered in the evidence of our gorging by the signature powdered sugar! Need I forget the Bloody Mary with the giant pickle in it, hands down the best Bloody Mary ever!
The service was attentive, polite, and helpful which really added to the whole experience on both visits, one on a busy Sunday and then for lunch the next day. Lunch was a monolithic burger which I admit I ate wholeheartedly, but could easily have been two meals. Flavorful beef perfectly cooked and served promptly. The only regret I have is that I could not make room for the individual apple pie that is promoted to be served with creme or ice cream scoop, an all American classic. If you have not visited Great Maple, you are missing out. Get there or be square!!

First timers! Made reservation for 12pm. Had to wait and got sat at 12:20 which was a little annoying. Parking was horrible that day. Looked like maybe a street fair going on. I’m from San Diego but don’t venture to this part of town so I had no idea.
Anywho, server was on top of it. Attentive and super friendly with a smile 😁 Food was amazing 🤩 Tried a little of everything. Will definitely be back!

Relatives visiting from the Bay Area. We wanted something special so we went to Great Maple. We’ve never been disappointed. Great atmosphere. We love how they’ve converted the parking lot into a chic, comfortable restaurant.
