After 20 minutes, we had no water, no drink orders, no napkins, no silverware. So, we left.

I understand that restaurants have been under duress due to the pandemic and are still experiencing under staffing etc. but this was too much.

Food was good. The atmosphere was great. Out of a few things on the menu that we would have gotten so our options were limited with a small menu. Desserts were great. Staff was friendly & helpful.

Server couldn’t have been more pleasant, but was stretched too thin.
Order was inaccurate and incomplete.
Food preparation was not what we had experienced previously. Unripe tomatoes, undercooked egg, cold grilled shrimp for example.
Was a Sunday, so, as hotel guests, we were somewhat captive. Won’t make same mistake twice.

The ambience was the best part about this restaurant, being on a rooftop overlooking Mountain Brook. The food was good, but definitely not worth the price point. I suppose the setting and being located in the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook are why they charge you so much.

I am writing this review that I realize that they are short staffed...at least I hope that is the reason for not so great service. We went for a special occasion for brunch. We had reservations and plenty of tables were open. Waited a long time for a server to come to our table. Took our drink orders and food orders at that time. One person ordered a smoothie which took 30 minutes to receive. The food came out after 35-40 minutes. Many items were cold or items that had fruit on it were placed under a warmer lamp so the fruit was hot. Eggs tasted like salt had been dumped on them.
So disappointed because we were really looking forward to having a good experience here. It is pretty and has a great atmosphere. I think they just need more staff to have the service match the decor.

It was my mother’s birthday and I came from out of town and reserved a table for brunch. They apparently don’t serve brunch even though it was advertised on open table that they do. We waited about 5 mins for a lady to walk by to say it was seat yourself, so I really didn’t need a reservation. Took 45 mins to get a drink order. Probably the slowest service I have ever received at a restaurant. We made the best of it and still ate from the lunch menu. The food was amazing!! I’m just disappointed in the service.

Unfortunately we had been set up with high expectations. I know this is a difficult time for restaurants. Our waitress was nice but very knowledgeable. We were seated in the bar which lacked the ambiance we had expected. Good views though.

I ordered the octopus and while the flavor was there it was definitely over cooked. The rest of the food was mediocre. Drinks were great though. Will try again another time.

We didn’t stay. We showed up for our reservation and was immediately taken to our table by the bar. We sat for 15 minutes without any acknowledgement what-so-ever from the staff. We left and will not be back. I can tolerate a lot, but NO service and being ignored is NOT something I will pay $ for.

Our service was excellent. The overall staff from the hostess to the wait staff was very friendly. They cooked my mom a special breakfast not on the brunch menu the day we went for Easter which was very kind She wanted a simple Americano breakfast with eggs and bacon and it arrived and was hot and tasty. Excellent cocktails as well. I would definitely return . I would like to have cocktails in the courtyard. Fun outside atmosphere.

Flatbread 1/5-burned and over seasoned
Honey chicken 3/5-ok, but nothing special
Butter cake 0/5-overcooked, tastes like jiffy cornbread.

Food was extremely salty. Couldn't eat it. Honey chicken is not an easy dish to eat because of the plating choice. Waitress never came by so could not ask for a knife. There were so many potatoes and broth under chicken, it was like trying to eat soup. Was a very disappointing birthday dinner. Absolutely not worth the money.

This our favorite dining restaurant. I ordered the Filet Mignon medium well and it came out perfectly cooked. I love the sweet onion and sauce they use to plate it, so delicious! My husband ordered the fish selection for today and it was the Red Snapper and it was delicious! We also ordered the Bayou La Batre Shrimp and again delicious. The flavor was amazing. This place is our go to for dinner when we want to eat out. The staff is wonderful!

Birthday get together. Waitress very attentive and nice. Food was good but had expected better based on reputation. Patio was nice with an awesome vibe. Interior seating dated and more of a conference room dining feel. Quirky carpet does not make that room interesting. Should have the purple chandeliers and other touches to increase boho vibe

Very sloppy service. Waited 20 minutes for someone to get our drink order. And during the rest of the evening the server was not attentive. Food was bland. The charcuterie board looked and tasted like lunchables. Entrees also fell very flat. Expected way more from this restaurant. Will not be back.

Steak was very under cooked, but staff worked very hard cooking another one, but took some time. I don’t eat if my wife is not eating, so my food was cold by the time her’s arrived cooked correctly. Waitress also mixed up our wines. Other than those things it was a good night. Waitress was very nice and helpful, food ended up very good. Not first time eating her and will not be the last.

The starters were just ok, the main dishes were better (my steak was slightly under done), the chocolate cake dessert looks more like a hamburger patty with ketchup (raspberry sauce) taste was just ok. We felt as though the tables were not fully socially distance, we could hear practically everything said at the table next to us. Overall for the value and lack of direction when we arrived, we were completely underwhelmed.

The food here was really terrible - and expensive. We each ordered the "fresh" catch and it was dry and overcooked, served with damp risotto and broccoli for I think $30+ each. We asked for bread and were told they didn't have any bread because of COVID (what does that even mean?) and brought us a saucer of "rice crackers" instead. Lots of good dining options in this area - definitely skip this one.

Took about an hour from time of ordering our meal till we received the food, which was neither hot nor cold when it came out. Got stuck at a table by the bar and there were too many people there without masks.

I’ve eaten lunch at Habitat Social and had very positive experiences. My first dinner experience ...not so much. My husband likes his steak more done than most. He ordered his filet medium well. The steak was so rare he sent it back, which he never does. They brought it back and it really wasn’t cooked any more than it was. The wait staff didn’t even question it when they took his plate and his steak had two bites taken. My brick pressed chicken was so dry it was barely edible. We ordered bread pudding to salvage the visit and it was cold when it arrived. And they were out of the beer we ordered. The atmosphere was amazing, but this time the food was not.
