Great food, great drinks, lots of options, lovely design of the place
They forgot to submit our food ticket and so we ended up waiting 30 minutes after waiting 20 minutes to have our order taken. The food came out salty and the wine from our carafe had a strange soapy after taste.
Great food, great service - wonderful experience!
Amazing cocktails, and the pudding is absolutely delicious!
Great all around vibes!
Great lunch at Jack’s Wife Freda. The food was delicious and my server Jack was fantastic. A real treat. I will return very soon.
Amazing service and food! Get the Pimms cup!
We made a reservation for 3 at 7:30pm and held it with a credit card as requested. I was first to arrive and told a manager that the rest of the party was walking up the block.5the place was crowded, but one table was free..he said that would be ours.
I turned my back for a minute to greet my arriving friends, and in an instant our table was being given to another party!!
We had to wait for a few table, which ended up being 2 little ones separated by a pole. No happy at all.
Even worse, the 5 different dishes we ordered were so poorly made that we left 2 after tasting them. There was no balance at all: we would have had a better meal at a falafel place for far less money. So, so disappointed; we’ll never return. And, if you like to have a conversation over a meal, this is NOT the place…the noise is off-the-charts like a disco!
Food was good though portions very small for the price. Lemonade with mint was delicious but at $9 a glass was way too expensive. Service was fine. Malva pudding was good.
Food is flavorful with some nice palate surprises Had the bowl with red quinoa, spaghetti squash, eggs and avocado. Excellent and def one of a kind. Atmosphere is casual and nothing to write home about, but so what the food is well-prepared and service was great.
Awesome and friendly staff. The atmosphere was electric and the food couldn’t have been any better.
Lovely spot. Rose water waffle is a must try
gorgeous friday evening dinner. thank you!
Our waitress maria was amazing. Food was awesome, vibe was fun. We sat outside and the staff was so accommodating to my big dog who joined us! Great night.
Great food and lovely outdoor seating! Fun to share plates with friends and family :)
It is the only place I've given a low score until today The employee who met at the door was very rude, we went without sitting despite the reservation.
I love this place. It always exceeds my expectations. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding and the ambiance is so fun! We celebrated my daughter’s birthday and they made it a point to make her feel special by singing Happy Birthday. Thank you for your thoughtfulness & exceptional service!!
Delicious cold brew.
It was a nice experience, food was good and the price reasonable
The floral outdoor area is so cute. Perfect for dinner with friends!
Love this restaurant. Amazing for brunch. Great cocktails and wines by the glass. Reasonable prices.
Great cozy charming eatery with fabulous food!
Everything tasted great. The salmon, the beet dip, the salad, the cauliflower.
all yum !
The wine in carafe was good value and tasty.
Couldn't ask for a better lunch spot. Virgin Mohito was to die for.
Great atmosphere for a friend's brunch and wonderful service!
I absolutely loved the service at this joint! Drinks were also spot on! My trouble was with their food, a lot of the veg options weren't as innovative or even flavorful as their meat counterparts. This is typical though, not something I would hold against them. The shakshuka is also very watery! :( not much going on there either.
Absolutely wonderful and refreshing dining experience! After years of Manhattan dining, we were most impressed with the professionalism of the staff. We were made to feel most welcomed, and that we were truly respected guests. Not hurried, not pressured...very responsive to requests. Food was well prepared and unique. The staff really seem to enjoy their work as a team. Delightful!
The food was not inedible, but it wasn't particularly good. It seemed like something I would throw together for lunch if I was cleaning out the fridge. Not impressed. Spent way too much money for food that would be a mediocre meal if I cooked it myself. The best part was the grilled pita (which is very good). Staff was extremely nice and helpful.
Always a great spot with friendly service, yummy food, good tunes.
I went here for lunch with my fiancé and we loved the laid back atmosphere and food was great and so was the service!
I think the food was okay-- I didn't really find anything special about the meals that we ordered. We were put in a table that was a bit too small for three people, and did not have much room. The waitresses were really nice though, and I definitely enjoyed the mint lemonade. It's a nice cute brunch place that I would go with my friends.
Food was ok, not too flavorful or spectacular. Good service
Great ambiance, food and service. We especially enjoyed the happy hour. Will definitely return.
I had a great time. The service was excellent, the meal was really tasty and the restaurant did a great job of observing Covid guidelines while still creating a relaxed atmosphere.
Food was great. Service was great. I don’t know why they felt the need to say I missed my reservation. I was 5 mins early. I had a great time until I saw something accusing me of standing them up. I would never.
Awesome outdoors and service!
Great drinks too
great it was really great fun great
Absolutely freezing and a packed inside
So nice to be able to eat indoors with my friends for the best meal, brunch.
