Big City was the perfect spot for me to reconnect to two former students of mine. Although it had been almost 40 years since we've seen each other, the warm, friendly atmosphere was so very conducive for reconnecting a relationship of long ago. The food was great, the ambience inviting and the entire evening just perfect.

We had a nice small gathering here. Service was very good and the food was tasty. One note: the brunch on Saturday ends at 3pm and they switch to a limited menu until 5pm. We got there just in time to beg and plead to have the main menu. They were very accommodating.

We celebrated Mother’s Day early with brunch on Saturday morning. Was greeted with a great table outside and prompt service. We enjoyed the unlimited mimosas and fantastic waffles, omelets and pancakes. Always one of our favorites. Doesn’t disappoint.

Food and service were excellent, my only negative comment was the chairs inside the restaurant were extremely low and uncomfortable. We were fortunate that the outside tables with comfortable chairs were available at the time we arrived. will go back but will request outdoor seating.

We took my mom here for Mother’s Day (brunch) since I work on Mother’s Day. The reviews were really good for this place and the food looked amazing from the reviews. The food was pretty good. The service was a bit on the slow and inattentive side. It was busy so I can understand that affecting the service a little. But our server was very nice.

Great place to grab breakfast/brunch. There are more breakfast items (not a bad thing) than lunch (few sandwiches/salads). We sat just "inside" the outdoor patio which was perfect as you didn't feel cramped or too close to the street.

We had steak/eggs and Benedict. Very pleasing to the palette. The all you can drink mimosas are an added touch to complete the occasion.

Would definitely recommend.

Great food. Great service. From the time we were greeted to the moment we left the staff was very friendly! Our server was very attentive. She had good knowledge of the menu which really helped me narrow down my choice. Walked the strip and went back to the bar where the bartenders were friendly too!

We really enjoyed our experience at the restaurant. The entire staff was very helpful and friendly and always made sure to check on us even though their restaurant was super packed and busy. The drinks and food were fantastic and I highly recommend trying their Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich. The best friend chicken sandwich I've had in years! Also recommend trying their wine flight where they serve wine from tap. Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and hope to come back again to try their brunch!

Let me start by saying if I was just reviewing the bar and bar staff this would be a five star rating. I had a reservation on Sunday evening and we arrived 15 minutes early so we had a drink at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartenders were great, made suggestions based on what we ordered, told us their names and asked our names. It was happy hour at the bar which was a nice surprise and the drinks were fantastic.

Unfortunately once we got to our table it was a different experience. The service was terrible. We rarely saw our waitress. We ordered drinks and an appetizer when she finally made it to our table. We were offered bread when we ordered the appetizer but never received it, and didn’t see our waitress again for about 45 minutes. A runner brought out the apps and drinks and rushed away before we could ask about the bread. We then ordered salads and a main course that took quite a bit of time as well. Once we finished dinner our waitress cleared our plates and gave us our check never offering dessert. Given the opportunity and better service we would have ordered dessert and more drinks.

I will say all of the food was delicious, but unfortunately based on the service I’m not sure I would eat here again.

This was a great restaurant. The food was delicious, the server was great, and the overall service was wonderful. I had called and asked for an outdoor table and while they told me they couldn't guarantee it, because my reservation was made through Open Table, they had saved me one. My guests were from out of town and they loved the experience of dining outside on Las Olas. Great location with great atmosphere.
