    Terribly slow service. Rude waitress. Very disappointed in quality of the beignets, the chicken and the bread that the eggs Benedict was served on could hardly be cut with a knife.

    Fantastic server! Prompt refills on coffee and iced tea, quick service, but we never felt rushed. The fried chicken was really remarkable -- no bones (nice!), just the right balance of hot/spicy and sweet, and so tender. Flaky biscuits. A great brunch in a lovely space.

    The Empanadas appetizer was good. The entrees: Chicken fricassee came in a hugely under seasoned broth with overcooked vegetables. The Chicken itself was crisp and flavorful. The Beef Bourguignon was a little better but the beef was less flavorful than it should’ve been which is odd because the sauce was good. The kitchen just needs to taste as they go and these issues would be easily fixed.

    We loved the artichokes (but they are messy to eat) and the empanadas and pizza were also excellent. We came early, so the noise level was low, but I can imagine it gets noisy later. We also received vey good service. We will return again.

    I’m not one to leave a bad review and honestly hate to - but I took my husband here for his b day brunch and the food was sub par and over priced. Sticky floors, strange smells in the restaurant, very small portions, overall lackluster experience but the photos online make it look so much more trendy/yummy. Disappointed :(

    We were lucky enough to be offered a table in the beautiful courtyard of Hotel Cerro. Centered around the fig tree and surrounded by plants , open to the sky , warmed by fire pits. Service was informative, friendly and discreet, The menu offerings were sophisticated, emphasis, on farm to table, local fresh ingredients.Our food was excellently cooked and presented.. all delicious. Extensive wine choices and great guidance from our server. It was an all round enjoyable experience, highly recommended.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stop at the Brasserie SLO on a drive south from the Bay Area. It's in a very convenient and interesting part of downtown, and has a very nice dessert display at the entry. We enjoyed a very interesting "croissant beignet" appetizer. It was very tasty (if a bit oily), and was accompanied by a beautiful rhubarb apple dipping sauce. We both ordered salmon & vegetable quiche for the main course, which was very rich and creamy. I would have liked a little less cream and a little more salmon (the salmon was essentially a thin crust on the top, which made it a crispy), but the flavor was delicious. And kudos to the hiring manager - the staff was friendly, engaging, and helpful. I just wish I'd known that the bottomless mimosa was $38!! Who could possibly drink enough mimosas to make it worth that price?

    Service was attentive and pricing would be fair however, oysters nor fish were the freshest. Additionally, halibut was overcooked. With that said, all of the vegetables on both entrées as well as cocktails as dessert were completely on point.

    We are always looking for a French Restaurant close by. The service was very good. The outside seating is really great on a nice day. Food was very good, not outstanding, but better than avarage. the salmon bisque very good, the empanadas good. Quiche I wouldn't order again again service was excellent and staff very friendly

    The portions are very small and the prices are very high. We shared a salad and added salmon. The salad portion which is supposed to be like a meal was like an appetizer and then you split it and it’s like a sample plate. The soups were tasty but the potion of the bowl was smaller than a cup. We spent $72 for lunch for two. We did not even have wine, just Ice Tea.

    The air conditioning is on so it blows right through open space. Poor planning. Needed bigger opening and less velocity. You get a nice hot meal. Put your jacket on and eat before food cools down. Would have preferred booth arrangement.

    Great ambiance, and excellent service for a mother's day lunch. The Crudo and a Buratta salad where excellent, but the main course, a lobster risotto was watery and bland, under-seasoned and a bit disappointing, (not in keeping with other meals we have had there.)
