Every time I've ordered the Chicken and Waffles, the chicken has been undercooked. They've also forgotten to serve us food with a party of 6. Really want to like this place, but...

I could not wait to try this restaurant for the first time and now I cannot wait to go back! I saw the restaurant featured on the "Savoring Harlem" special and my curiosity was peaked. I was there with three other people and we all enjoyed our dining experience. A true diamond indeed!

The food was sophisticated, the fish melted in my mouth and the crema catalana was insanely delicious. Will definitely be back.

I live around the corner and I will CERTAINLY be back. Everything was delicious, and the unlimited brunch cocktails are a steal!

Although not a wide selection, I like their brunch options. Menu items are reasonably priced...and they are one of the few places in Harlem that offer unlimited drinks (mimosas, sangria, etc.) during brunch. The place is very small but cute...and overall I just enjoy the ambience. I definitely plan to make it a regular.

I had a crab cake benedict many times before in several different establishments so I knew what to excpect. This one unfortunately was dissapointing... crabcake benedict came as very dry/hard texture, could use as a hockey puck literally, I am not sure the reason.
Other than that the place although very small had nice ambiance and great bloody mary!

good food, if a bit noisy - our fellow patrons had a loud conversation that took away from the ambiance; otherwise, great find.

First went there on a Monday for the exceptional value Mac-n-Cheese Monday and cocktail specials. Food was tasty and the server was charming and engaging great but the food came out a bit haphazardly. The next I went there with a group of friends and had a totally indifferent server with similarly haphazard delivery of food. Even worse, one of the servers spilled food on one of my friends and they didn't offer to make amends by comping her something so she had to ask them to! I really want to like this place but it's a little inconsistent. I'll give them another try though.

That food had soul! Great, great, great experience, and the owner was fantastically hospitable. He and my sommelier husband had a great chat about Spanish wine! A must!

I took my neighbor to this great neighborhood (and NYC) find for brunch, and she was so amazed. The food is delicious, the presentations beautiful. We had an excellent server, Emmanuel, and were treated so well by John, too. We loved our French toast and eggs selections. When we saw everyone else's brunch choices, we wanted those too! Alas, can't eat everything, so we will go back soon!
This space is bright and comfortable. I have been for lunch and, very often, for dinner and love it every time!

We had a four-top, and the service was absolutely impeccable. The food was delicious. We ordered the daily fish special and could not have been more pleased. The house cocktails were quite good, and the prices were reasonable.

The only reason I went with 4 stars is that they were out of a few things that would have been nice. Other than that, an excellent experience. We will be back.

For an additional $10 during Sunday brunch you can add unlimited cocktails for 1 hour!

I try to find something positive to say about each dining experience. However, I was very disappointed with my experience at this restaurant. We ordered our first course and then waiting forever for them to arrive at the table. Once the table was cleared a waitress asked if we ready to see the dessert menu. Um....no..... having the entree before dessert is the usual way I eat a meal. They ran out of side dishes, ran out of the wine we wanted to have with our meal. Never again. And, you can be darn sure I won't be recommending this place to anyone.

John really took care of us! We spoke on the phone before coming in and he instantly reached out when we walked in. Our server Joe was very friendly and enthusiastic, helpful with the menu and ready to share his favorites. Good options for a variety of people.

I never got to eat there because when I arrived they told me they were closed for a private party and had tried to call me. That is untrue. They never called and this was a big inconvenience since I was visiting from out of town and went out of my way to go there.Also, it is NOT close to Columbia U. as they claim. At least a 20 min walk away. Bad experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed the quaint and intimate feel of the restaurant. The food was very well prepared and tasted great, but the portions were entirely too small. I dine out frequently and the plates that were presented to me and my party were by far the skimpiest ones I've seen. Had the dinner been part of a tasting menu I would have understood, but as a sole entree no. My party of 4 started with 3 shared appetizers and after dinner everyone commented on how they were still hungry and asked for an additional piece of bread in order to fill up.
