The drinks weren’t much better unless you want your alcohol straight up. This could be such a nice place if they cared more about the food and service.

I asked for the manager and they never came. Probably will never go back off that experience alone. Especially when there were parties there wayyy before us and they weren't asked to leave.

Glasses never empty, one wanted more bacon, another more chicken...it was GREAT! We loved the music and decor. Oh and the food. Very reasonably priced. Abdul and crew are doing a fabulous job.

For the actual brunch food they ask you do you want pork or not and based off your response they bring you a mystery plate of options including 1 chicken wing and 1 strip of bacon. I’m sure it has potential to grow but as of now I would not return.

What’s the point of making a reservations. Maybe you just have to get there early and wait for a table , I’m not sure. I did see people with food and it looked tasty. The music was also nice.

The food was mid-grade and the only thing that was mildly good, was the hookah and music. I honestly don’t see myself ever going there again. It was an unorganized brunch. I believe if the establishment wasn’t new and overly hyped, it would be shut down. I wish I had a better experience but there needs to be new management. The hospitality was nonexistent. I felt like I wasted my time and money.

She kept walking away to help other tables maybe she had adult ADD or the already added gratutiy. It took her forever to help us. My food was cold just like her attitude. The waffle line was in the kitchen. The waffle chef and omlete chef were really nice. Our hookah did not pull and he had nine of the flavors on the menu. The manager was nice as well. But not nice enough for me to ever go back. Only good thing was the DJ was lit.

We had to tell the server that it was our first time and she told us, “oh well it’s bottomless mimosas”. We looked around wondering if that was all the place had to offer. We were confused for the most part but figured it out on our own. The brunch platter was a waste of money because they give you options of every meat by default, but if you don’t eat pork you waste that portion of the platter vs them asking you about your food preferences and subbing it for something you would eat. Veggies tasted like they thawed them out and served them. It was not a great experience. The place is beautiful but unorganized and overpriced for the experience.

The waffle and the omelets stations are great and fast. The cooks have personality so it helps with waiting. Our waitress was great, the unlimited mimosas were tasty as well. The vibe was great and the DJ had it jamming in there. Will definitely be back for more. The only thing to note is if you have a reservation, give yourself enough time to find parking as the parking lot up the street fills up pretty quickly.

Also they have a 2 hr time frame on your reservation however they made us move based on our reservation time not based on the time we sat down which was different. Our reservation was at 1230 pm, but we didn't sit until 115pm. They need to get that straight. They also need more waitresses because the crowd was too large for them which caused long wait times. Overall this place was just Okay
