This was our second time for brunch and everything was superb. I wish I had gotten names but our server was fantastic (he usually works at East Pole) and the female manager was so nice and accommodating. We will certainly turn into regulars! Keep it up!

I have now been to this restaurant 3 times. It’s always soooo hot inside. Every person who has ever gone with me has been so uncomfortable from the temperature inside. Too bad because the food is good and the bar is fun !!! Doesn’t matter if it’s winter or summer, it’s just so awful. Maybe they should invest in a better AC unit .. I won’t be returning unfortunately !!!

We went to Eastfield's for my dad and brother-in-law's birthday brunch, as noted on my opentable reservation. While the food was great, the service really detracted from our experience. For context more than half the restauarant was empty, as it was a late brunch reservation (3pm).

First, we all (six people) ordered a round of drinks and one was forgotten. We told our server of the issue, she did not apologize, and then after double-checking a few times that we didn't receive it and asking the type of drink three times, approximately 10 minutes later it arrived - after I saw it sitting prepared on the bar for several minutes. It was frustrating because we were waiting to "cheers" together. Second, similarly, 5 out of 6 entrees arrived within a minute or so of each other and the last took MUCH longer - to the point that one person was completely finished with their entree before the last arrived. Our server did not apologize or explain what happened. Third, someone ordered a gin and soda, but a gin and tonic arrived, and after pointing out the issue to the server, that the drink ordered was a gin and soda, not tonic, she brought over a little glass of tonic, and explained that the tonic had a unique taste...we, again, explained that the drink that was ordered a gin and soda, not a gin and tonic. It was finally prepared correctly. I had also planned on ordering more than one drink, but she never came around to ask if we wanted another round until I was almost finished with my entree.

In addition to the specific issues, service was generally very slow. As soon as we could flag her down, in a now almost empty restaurant, we paid the bill and left. It's a shame because it's a cute restaurant and the food and drinks were really good.

Unfortunately, the food and ambiance don't overcome the service issues for me and I would not go back.

I wish the food were better and more consistent. I ate there once before and it was excellent; not so this time. Had to send back a hamburger because it came medium well and I ordered it medium rare. Second one was exactly the same, so I reluctantly ate it. It seemed to me that this burger was smaller than the first time I was there. I was actually in the mood for an omelette or pancakes and was very surprised that neither were on their brunch menu (although they did have french toast and waffles).

I am in a wheelchair and they were helpful and nice (many restaurants are not) and had actually removed a chair from our reserved table so that it was ready for me when I arrived with my guests. I truly appreciate that courtesy.

We go early and take our kids (well behaved and again, early). Their menu is well crafted with something for everyone (and very delicious). Sometimes the specials are "eh" but then again you take that risk eating something the chef is "trying out".

Food in general was tasty but portions were small and we waited a long time for the entree to arrive. I had the pork chop and I have to say it was very tasty but also had quite a bit of fat on it.

I liked the ambiance but as it is child friendly the room is loud and the acoustics in the back are poor. We could not hear each other speak until later in the evening when the room emptied out.

We had the burrata and truffle bacon mac n cheese to start - both great. For main courses, the macro bowl, burger, and roasted chicken were all great too. But the truffle mushroom puree that goes with the roasted chicken is not very truffley.

My husband and I went for a 2 pm brunch. The restaurant was busy with young couples and young families with strollers. Our waitress was personable and it didn’t seem her fault that my drink came with the entree
My husband’s French toast was delicious but my chicken and waffles were only O K. We would try again

My husband & I stumbled upon Eastfield’s last year, when my friend hosted her daughters graduation party there. Since we’ve come countless times. Each and every time we are blown away by the service, cocktails & food! Tonight we enjoyed another date night. My husband had the burger (his favorite) and I had the macro bowl. We were pleasantly surprised by their new dessert additions. Warm, flourless chocolate cake with vanilla IC! WOW! Although we did have a minor mix up with our order the manager immediately came to our table & resolved it. She is such a sweetheart! The staff is always so friendly & helpful. We love this little neighborhood gem!

Food was delicious and atmosphere was nice. Very comfortable seating and friendly staff. Just one suggestion, I sampled all of the 5 glasses of red wine on the wine menu and only one made the cut. I’d recommend taking the time to find better wine options.

This is a very nice place for brunch! The front side of the restaurant opens up so you get a nice outdoorsy feel if you get one of the tables there. The service is very friendly and patient. My friend and I spent a lot of time chatting and just finishing one drink and next before ordering food. We hadn't seen each other in a while and had a lot to catch up on! But I truly appreciated our server being patient about it because we did not order food for a while. Food was yummy! I had the messy sandwich which has a lovely spicy tinge to it. My friend had the asparagus frittata. The greens salad that came with both dishes was fresh. The rose tequila sangria was a bit on the sour side. The peach bellini was good. My only recommendation would be to add a mimosa to the brunch drinks.
Overall a wonderful experience and we would certainly be returning and recommending this place to others!

It was our friend’s birthday. It was great but way too hot inside. It was 90 degrees out and they had the doors open. Even though the air was on it didn’t matter. There were 6 of us. 5 out of the 6 were uncomfortable because it was sooooo hot !!!!!

Good to find local restaurant. Menu was limited and would have liked to see a few more choices. The only fish is salmon and they were out of salmon when we went. However there were other interesting things-- the quinoa bowl was very good; the lamb shwarma enjoyed by husband, and falafel burger by others ( they said good but a little dry).
It was not too noisy, which we liked. Would definitely go back again.

One of our favorites. At night it is a little less noisy with fewer children and the addition of noise cancelling panels helps. The menu is from locally sourced ingredients and always fresh. The nightly specials are a treat.When I want to eat healthier I order the Macro Bowl which is delicious on its own (vegan) but so much better with chicken. Of course my husband has yet to order anything but the Berkshire pork chop. The crab avocado toast appetizer is delicious and large enough to share, but I don't. This restaurant is the quiet star of the East Pole group. We have never been disappointed. Kudos to Carl for a well run ship.
