    The food was good, but took a long time to get to the table and everyone in my party of 10 did not get our food at the same time. Additionally, I would recommend getting to brunch before 2pm because the omelet and waffle lines were extremely long.

    Our waiter wasn’t attentive at all. We would order our drinks and food and it would take her forever to bring them back or even check-in… we always had to hunt her down for anything. It’s a nice cute spot with poor service and not so good food.

    It was our first time patroniztjid established and we attended their brunch. The value for what comes with the brunch is really good. It would be even better if oncw they use better champagne for their mimosas to create somekind of a buzz. Our waitress was super nice, informative and attentive. They get a + bc the DJ played mostly 90s-00s hip hop which spoke to the crowd. The majority of the crowd was 35+ within our age group Brunch ends at 5pm and the DJ switched over to RNB. This was the moment we noticed the vibe and crowd dying out. Folks were leaving and there was barely energetic patrons left. My friend asked the DJ if he could switch up the music to play some Soca, not knowing the difference in genre he played 2 Afrobeats songs (which love anyway) and returned to the same RNB that no one was dancing too. We ended up leaving to go elsewhere bc we were really bored at that point. I would go back, but only for brunch.

    The only part of the food I enjoyed was the omelet station and the waffle station. The rest of the food was too COLD to eat. I also enjoyed the bottomless mimosa. The service from the ladies were excellent. The parking was awful. I will come back maybe at night time.

    We had 9:30 dinner reservations but told once we were seated that we had to order off of the late menu which only had jerk wings, green tomatoes, chicken tenders and fries. We were served with plastic cups and utensils. The jerk chicken was ridiculously hot. I thought someone in our party had ordered a drink because the server asked for her credit card after she gave her order. It was just food. The music was too loud to hold a conversation even though we were seated upstairs.

    The new Saturday brunch was the worst first experience at Air!! Our server really did not fully explain how the brunch is set up and that they would bring us a plate with a sample of everything on the menu without asking if wee had food allergies which we both did. The food was COLD!!!!! When we advised our waitress about how bad the food was, she had the manger come to our table. When we advised the manager that the food was awful and we couldn't eat most of it and also told her that the best thing was the mimosas, all she could say was, "the mimosas always hit". We would expect her to apologize for the bad experience and possible even knock a little something off the bill, but there was no reassurance that they were sincerely sorry about the experience we had. I would never go back there for brunch again.

    We made a reservation for 9:30 on Friday. There is a 15 minute grace period for reservations and we arrived to the door at 9:43 within the 15 minute grace period. Security and the woman at the door proceeds to tell us our reservation is over. Making absolutely no sense because we were there within the grace period. The woman then proceeded to tell my friend that tried to speak with her and let her know that we weren’t there at 9:30 on the dot because the parking in the area is horrible. However per your rules on the website we are still within our reservation time, the woman at the door proceeds to say well I wasn’t here when you walked up which was a lie because she was talking to another group before us. She then proceeds to say well there is an event going on and we aren’t honoring reservations through OpenTable anyway. No where on their website did it say they were not honoring table reservations because of the event. When we asked her where this was stated on the website she said it wasn’t. Reservations can only be made through the website and no where on their social media or website was this stated. This was our first and will be our last time going to Air.

    I wouldn't ever go to this place again...even if someone paid me. We ordered food and drinks, waited 45 minutes...and the order never arrived. They should wither be a club or a restaurant because they don't do well attempting to do both.

    The atmosphere was nice and our server was attentive. The food was ok we ordered the jerk wings as an appetizer but it was under cooked,we sent it back to the kitchen and our server took it off for us. For an entree we ordered the roasted chicken and lamb chops it was okay I'd give it a 4 out of 10. Overall this is a nice place to listen to music and have drinks.

    This was probably the worst experience I’ve had in a place in years. Took our server 15 minutes to come to our table. Once she got there, she started friendly but by the end of service, she was short and rude. Took my group of 8, 35 minutes to get only half our drink order and another 25 for the other half. When our food came, only received 5 out of 8 orders. And 4 out of those 5 were cold. We all sent our food back. Instead of our sever having open communication with us, letting us know about delays and things she walked passed our table and avoided eye contact. To make it worse, when we tried to close out, that took 45 minutes just to get the check! After that, I vowed to never visit this place again.

    Definitely a restaurant vs lounge vibe as there were children there (I have two, nothing against them but didn't expect to see them). Live music was really nice. Space is a bit tight.

    I came to Air DC for happy hour and was told a completely different price than what was on the menu. It seems like the waiters did not know the prices. The sauce came out before the food which was strange. Then our drinks came and my friend received 1/2 cup of soda. Next our food came and it was not even worth $5. Other than this, our waitress was nice and it was pretty good vibes, but I do not recommend.

    I will say that this place has potential. We arrived at 9:55 with reservations but was only able to get 4 options off the menu as the regular menu is not offered after 10pm. I would suggest more late night options. Everyone doesn't like spicy food (jerk wings) or chicken tenders. Overall our first visit was fair & we are planning to give it another try during Brunch. The band was nice.

    The service was below average. The food was average for the price. The food was not worth the value. I am one and done. I am a foodie and it wasn’t about the price it was the quality of the food. I go to a different restaurant every Sunday for brunch. I was highly disappoint…

    The ambiance and service was A+. Our waitress was very attentive and professional, I gave her a tip on top of the automatic gratuity. But the food was awful! Ok the omelette from the omelette station was great, the waffles were decent but all the other food was terrible! They served us the worse bacon I’ve ever had in my life! The piece of steak they served us was like eating beef jerky with no flavor! The rice and potatoes tasted like it was metal in them and the mac n cheese was really bad. I came hungry and wanted a great brunch, I ate my omelette, half of my waffle and that was it. Great spot to go vibe out and hang but not to actually enjoy food. 👎🏾

    I enjoyed the music and ambience but that’s about it. The food was nasty, unflavorful, overcooked, and cold. 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.

    The server was telling us that we had to move from our table because they had to flip the table (after an hour and 15 minutes) and it was supposed to be a 2 hour reservation. 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.
