    Outstanding service and superlative jazz with very solid brunch dishes. We loved the green goddess salad the shakshuka and the baked French toast. Drinks are a bit overpriced but everything else was reasonable in my opinion. Really enjoyed the jazz guys enjoying their trade.

    A great spot if you like genuine live music. You may want to request a table with a view of the stage if that is what you are going for, not all tables can see it. Prices were city prices, so it certainly wasn't a cheap date but it was absolutely a good one. Food and drinks were good, but the reason to go is the ambiance.

    It took an hour to get our main course though we ordered right away. The frites were underdone and oily (I had asked them not to fry them to a crisp as they did the time before, this was the other extreme). They charged us for the 4 extra pieces of pita wedges since the original number served was not nearly enough to eat the bean dip with. Had been there a number of times, but this was the last.

    My girlfriend’s steak (the most expensive on the menu) was overcooked and the mashed potatoes were cold. It was my birthday and we received no offer for dessert. When they returned the steak, they obviously used the same meat and overcooked it more. I was disappointed by this because my food was excellent.

    Lovely setting outdoors. Varied menu. Chose as entree the heritage tomatoes/caprese-type salad. The tomatoes were very ordinary, more like what one gets in an average supermarket. Given that this is the season for their best and since they were a focal point of the meal, more attention should have been paid to the selection. They were hard and had little flavor. Disappointing. (Other person in our party ordered the same thing and had the same experience.)

    We had a late reservation and it was perfect. Surprising one son visiting from Germany with his brother who flew in from DC to meet him. Perfect spot to meet. The band was amazing and the food was perfect for one jet lagged guest and another who was in need of a really good meal. Table was great. Staff was super nice. A great way to spend a Saturday night!

    Reserve a table early. Stay for the music after 10, but plan to keep ordering something because they will sweep non-revenue generating tables right out of there. Plenty of ppl waiting to take yours!

    The waitress and servers were all flustered and confused. My drink was spilled by the server on the table and no apology or attempt to clean up was made so I sat with a wet placemat the entire meal. Later my drink was abruptly taken from me without asking if I was done… Wrong dishes were brought to us a few times, silverware given to only one diner.. and more. Other than that the experience was average.

    We sat inside originally and were greeted by the waiter asking where our 3 rd guest was…parking? Walking? We said Uber. He advised us that our time limit of 90 minutes to dine started now. We ordered drinks and decided to check with the hostess about moving to an outdoor table. It was a busy Saturday evening and she was lovely and very nice and said yes. Once we moved outside our new waiter was perfect and everything was excellent. We ordered a bottle of wine and were lucky enough to meet AJ the Sommelier! So knowledgeable and fun to chat with. He checked on us several times. No one ever asked us to leave our table. A rough start but so glad we moved and would highly recommend. The Ricotta dip is a must. Thanks To the hostess for making our night enjoyable.

    We sat outdoors. The menu was quite limited. No bread was served with dinner. When we asked for a coffee after dinner we were told that they don’t serve coffee outdoors. The prices on the menu were quite high for what you got although the food was tasty. My companion ordered the chicken which was on the dry side. I ordered the brisket which was very good. Overall I think beehive is somewhat over priced and could be more flexible and it’s options.
