Staff was weeded. We had to ask for a server after 12 minutes of being seated at our table. Apps were decent, Whole Fluke was mediocre, rice was crunchy and at the same time gooey. Food came out on time. We passed on dessert.

The first time I went here, it rocked. This past Sunday sucked to say the least; we were rushed to order mimosas/brunch punch, the restaurant apparently ran out of Tabasco sauce, and our server accidentally spilled my mimosa on my phone and didn't even try to clean it much. The vibes at Dirty Habit are awesome, and so is the decor, but they've been officially overshadowed by the poor service.

Dirty Habit is the perfect experience for friends to get together, and catch up over bottomless brunch cocktails. I’d suggest going for bartenders choice!!

My service was beyond sub-par. I was left with no water and empty cups for at least 20minutes between refills. My server never came around to check on the food. I waited 30 minutes just to get my check. Wouldn't go back!

Setting is too industrial. Chair are absurd and cannot be moved. Service was VERY inattentive. Food was good enough but not thrilling. Bar was the best feature. I will return for that...

The ambiance was amazing at this place. The food was interesting. We went on Valentines Day so there was a limited menu but I would say that 2 out of the four dishes we had with the tasting were REALLY good, the others were so so.

Went for Valentine’s Day and were unfortunately very disappointed. I was so excited by their regular menu but the Valentine’s prefix menu didn’t contain anything that had caught my eye in the first place. The food ranged from sub par to inedible (one exception being the truffle ravioli which was the only tasty thing I had). The portions were very small for the price. We also waited an awkwardly long amount of time between certain courses. Overall major let down, won’t be back.

Very good service. Food was hit or miss for the Vday Prix Fixe menu— salt was in abundance in the food, in particular the salmon and duck. Ravioli was excellent. Bass too.

Business lunch menu is quite a value with appetizer, entree and dessert for $22. A glass of wine cost more than the meal! unlike many places, although informed it was a birthday celebration, the restaurant took no steps to acknowledge that occasion.

Food and atmosphere were excellent. However, we felt very rushed. We had a 7:00 reservation and were out the door by 8:00. Very short gaps between appetizers and dinner, and dinner and dessert.

Overall it was great. The food was awesome and the decor was trendy. There was an item that the kitchen ran out of and instead of asking if we wanted to substitute, the kitchen took it upon themselves to sub for us. It ended up being ok, but our whole table agreed that it would have been better to ask us first.

Our server forgot about us a few times and had us waiting to order. When he brought our bill to us, we were charged for different drinks than what we had ordered ($7more per drink than the price of the correct drink x 14!). We were able to get that corrected with no issues tho...just makes you wonder were we being hoodwinked or was it an honest mistake??

My best friend and I met up for brunch. This was my second time at Dirty Habit - the first was for cocktails on the patio. Service was great and the food was very tasty! They had their restaurant week menu available and it was a great selection for $22. My favorite dish of the day was the yogurt/granola/compote - it was absolutely phenomenal! Dirty Habit’s decor is so chic and trendy, it’s definitely one of my top favorite places to frequent!

went for restaurant week with hungry people. they prided themselves on four options as opposed to the standard three, but maybe next time, have three and offer more food. portions were painfully tiny, left hungry.

Selected this venue because I was going to go here for brunch and then I saw it on the restaurant week list so I chose it. What attracted me most was the website because it's very appealing to the eye, BUT I neglected to view what was most important -- THE MENU! I'm a very picky eater and I had not idea that although it was restaraunt week the menu would be very eclectic to say the least! The food was not horribly BAD, it just was not incredibly GOOD either and I can't believe that there was not a seafood option on the menu to choose from. I am glad that I had the chance to eat eggplant for the very first time. I was very good, but I do not have to dine here again. The venue is beautiful, but the menu selections are not what I need for something so pretty.

Dirty Habit is in the Monaco Hotel so you can't see it from the street. I wish the website mentioned that the restaurant is inside the Monaco Hotel. The photos show a wall of windows, but those windows look out into the inner courtyard, not the street. When the weather is nice, the patio is the place to be. Their Restaurant Week menu prompted us to try it out. The place is pretty cool, with an upscale, dark bar vibe. Tables are close together. The chairs were nice and plush but very heavy making it hard to move the chairs. Our server Annie was very good. I ordered the house signature cocktail with lychee syrup, sake, vodka, rose water. I couldn't drink it as it was so thick with syrup. I tried to dilute it by waiting for the ice to melt and adding water to it, but it didn't help much. I asked our server to take it off the bill, which she did. The food was pretty good though. During Restaurant Week you got four courses for $35. The gluten free corn bread was served in cigar boxes -- very cute! There were two very large rounds of corn bread. The mushroom soup was also very good as was the fried chicken wings which came with an Asian style sweet chili glaze. The lamb pasta was good but a bit small. The steak frites for an additional $9 was a surprisingly large portion. It was pretty good and came with nice steak sauce and ketchup. Truffle fries was one of the options for the first course but since I was having the steak frites, there was no point in having a double order of fries. The dessert course gave you 4 options. we ordered the cake pop, the key lime pie (tiny individual pie in a pre-made crust), and the carrot cake. I would say the dessert course was the weakest as they were very tiny portions. The place seemed really nice for drinks and appetizers. We'd go back for happy hour and sit on the patio. Or maybe for a quick bite before catching a play or a movie, or maybe even after a play or movie. Service was really good.

We arrived early for our reservation and spent about an hour in the bar before being seated, which was fine. We were glad that they could seat us a bit earlier than our reservation.

The meal was very enjoyable. We decided on the tasting menu, which had a good variety of choices. Everything we had was delicious! We also decided on the drinks tasting menu to pair with our food tasting menu. Nice variety of wines and mixed drinks. My only negative comment about the service was that as we moved from course to course, we had to keep reminding the waitress that we needed to order our tasting menu drink for the next course. Otherwise, service and food was excellent.

A solid good rating with excellent service. The location appears to be more bar than restaurant. Those at the bar were definitely enjoying themselves.

Four course tasting menu. Well prepared. The cookie pop was a little awkward. Recommend a stick and not a bamboo pick. Poke was good bronzini was good.

I knew that there was gonna be some issues considering I chose date night during restaurant week, thus I was not surprised that I left Dirty Habit not pleased.
Our waiter was disinterested and inattentive, our food was late and uneventful...the manager came over to apologize and sent us a glass of wine on the house....then the food came and it was over cooked and we had enough...

I was not pleased with my specialty drink, (that the waitress suggested) and was informed that it could not be swapped for another. This is were should could have earned her 18 percent...but she didn't

They sent us home with a doggy bag....smh

The manager was very apologetic but it I pretty much got what I was expected....but at least the wife was happy with date night.

Dirty Habit was a spot that we have not been to and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance. I will come back but only for drinks....

The food and wine pairings were amazing. I loved the roasted brussel sprouts and beef tar tar. It’s a little dark in the restaurant, so besides the lighting, the ambiance is great for group meals.

Went to this place during restaurant week($37 for four courses if I remembered right though extra depending on what you choose). I arrived and was seated quickly. Have to say the décor of the restaurant is unique and trendy. More importantly, the food was excellent and the service was attentive.

First course - True farms mixed greens. There's not much I can say about this salad. It doesn't really stand out in any way.

Second course - Poke tuna. Now this was a very impressive dish. The tuna was well seasoned with all the different seasoning and garnishes. Nevertheless, they amplify the tuna's taste instead of overpowering it.

Third course - Braised ribs. The highlight of the night for me. Meat was incredibly tender and succulent.

Fourth course - German Chocolate Cake Pop. "Cake" is a bit of a misnomer considering how small the dessert was. The "cake" is really good, but it's more like a huge piece of chocolate that can be finished in like three bites.

I was satisfied with my meal overall. Though, be warned that portions can be a bit small so if you're really hungry you might want to order more food or find a different place.
