Waiter never put in our entrees after waiting almost an hour for food that was never put in then had the nerves to come and ask if we got our order. Manager looked at he like he didn’t know what we wanted him to do. This was my first and last time going there. I have never been to e restaurant where the waitress forgot to put in a whole order.

Felt a little rushed by the waiter with the time frame- also the unlimited mimosa and bellinis should be discounted Since we are only allowed to be there for 1.5hours.
Otherwise great venue and the food was great.

There menu options changed due to Covid. What we came in for was no longer available. place was at full capacity, so they were making good money and should have re-instituted the full menu. The food was good, but not great for the price. I guess your paying for the ambiance of being on the street in Las Olas.

I have dined here before but today was terrible ! We were seated and had 3 different people waited on us . Ordered an omelette it was raw inside, they forgot our bacon , toast was white bread hard and cold. Challah French toast was not challah and nothing special. Resturant floor was wet in places and not from cleaning , from spillage of beverages. Bathroom was filthy , no paper and not tended to. Very disappointed to write this type of review .

Excellent brunch dining experience. Our server Paul was very nice and very attentive. Food was good. Highly recommend truffle fries. Small suggestion is to serve the hollandaise sauce warm.

Love this spot. Always consistent, and great drinks, atmosphere. Food fell a tad short this time, but was the first time in years I have ever had anything less than stellar to say. This is def a Los Olas staple.

The new normal. It seemed a little less tidy than usual, maybe because we were still there when they were getting ready to close. Overall a great restaurant though.

Today I felt very rushed out, we visit so often and have great service up until today. Out table felt like an inconvenience and that the staff were rushing us out to fill our table, although we hadn’t been there more than an hour.

Overall it was an okay experience. The good: service was amazing, the drinks were delish. I wish they would have more vegetarian/vegan options. There was very little I could eat. I completely understand that they may not cater to non meat eaters, however, most restaurants have evolved to include a couple of choices that may be modified to accommodate us, hoping they will take that into account :)

They seemed to be a little short staffed. It was also a little warm in the restaurant and the waiter was sweating
