    It was exactly as I expected…loud, energetic, and yummy! Delicious brunch in the West Village. If you are looking for a quiet, elegant place, this is not it. This place has a big personality. Try the waffles or the breakfast bowl with the red quinoa. Delish!

    The other two venues in the city are much better. Noisy and the food was not great. Bad feng shui perhaps.

    Loved our brunch at Jack's Wife Freda in the West Village. We celebrated a 50th birthday and were provided a cute window table. Such a great vibe! Our service was great. We enjoyed the Madam Freda sandwich - it melted in your mouth! The cantaloupe mimosa were delish!! The gifted a celebratory dessert - African sponge cake that was so yummy! Wish you had locations in Austin, TX. :)

    I visited this place before the pandemic and the food was good so I was super disappointed to eat there. The green shakshuka was 50% just water with no flavor at all, I only eat because I paid so much for it. My partner's breakfast steak was also flavorless - not as bad as the shakshuka but def not worth the visit.

    Service was very friendly (the best part of the experience) and the food was good. Portions were pretty small, but that's most places these days. It's a nice place, but not as amazing as I thought it would be, given all I've read about this restaurant.

    First time for us. Not really enjoyed our brunch and the service was good. It’s very noisy inside, they could do with some soft furnishings to soak some of it up. Good vibe just need to talk loudly to be heard.

    I went with a group of 4 people and we all enjoyed our dish very much. I had the grilled eggplant sandwich which was delicious! Others in my group had the zucchini chips, moma freda, chicken schnitzel, and a grilled chicken sandwich. We all enjoyed our meal and the staff was very kind /attentive.

    We got a table here on a whim on a rainy Thursday afternoon and it was perfect. Everything was and comforting, especially the food. Service was excellent, atmosphere was great. Since we don’t live in NYC, we bought the cookbook to take home. Can’t wait to recreate the amazing meal we had!
