Earnest Bar & Hideaway: a relaxed restaurant and refined tavern serving comfort food classics & craft cocktails inspired by Ernest Hemingway in rustic-chic surrounds.
Reasonably priced entrees like the 32oz. Bone Ribeye and Grilled Pork Tenderloin. However, the Korean Fried Chicken has already established itself as a Earnest Bar & Hideaway classic. Saturday & Sunday brunch is 10:30AM - 2:30PM! Don’t miss out on the Ribeye French Dip sandwich, Brown Butter Pancakes, Hot Chicken & Mac! Wash it all down with Bottomless Mimosas.
The half bottle of champagne is the enemy of man -EH
Come join us for fare and libations!
Cheers!

Food and drinks were wonderful! Service staff was excellent. However, the noise level was beyond energetic…it was way too high. We met friends that we hadn’t seen in many months and it was difficult at times to hear each other talk. I suggest that they turn the music down a few notches so people don’t have to strain their voices. My throat was literally sore by the end of the evening. Just a friendly suggestion!

Arrived a bit early for our reservation, the hostess was not warm. We were seated at an awkward table with no place settings. Took a bit for the waiter to come to us once he arrived he offered no insight to the menu or any specials. We placed an order for drinks and then waited. Finally the drinks arrived and we placed our order. We finished our drinks and then waited again. Finally our appetizer arrived - a French toast dish. It was the best thing we had that day. When the waiter came back to clear the toast he took our drink order. It was brunch - most of the time the make sure to keep you in beverages. Not the case here. Our mains were terrible. The duck/waygu burger was ordered medium rare and showed up WELL DONE. It didn't taste like duck or beef. Very strange. It was also dressed with goat cheese that was not included on the menu. We also got biscuits with duck fat gravy. The biscuits showed up split in half and toasted hard. They were covered with the gravy but that was flavorless. Very bland, tasted like hot milk. We ordered two eggs over medium and they showed up over hard with zero give in the yolk. Overall the service with really slow and the food was just not good.

Exceptional service! Our appetizers took a while to come out of the kitchen so our server promptly let us know that he removed them from the bill, which was totally unexpected and very much appreciated. Food was delicious, ambiance was warm and intimate, and our kind server was just the cherry on top. Love this place!

Awesome place, first time here but will definitely be back. Had a reservation for 11am, walked into a mostly empty restaurant but it filled up quickly so I recommend making a reservation for Sunday Brunch.
Service was spectacular, JJ was our server and he kept the glasses full of mimosas for us. Food suggestions were great as well.

I only wish they had sat us by the window versus in middle of room when there we open tables. The innermost part by the bar does not have a lot of natural light.

Loved Earnest brunch!! Do yourself a favor, order the captain's coffee and the huevos rancheros. The coffee is like Christmas in a cup, and I would go back for that drink alone. The huevos rancheros could have maybe used a bit more salsa; however, I loved it as it wasn't the typical soup-like consistency that so many other places create. We'll be back, no question!
