    We should have walked out after seeing how the place looked. We got catfished by the pictures online. The decor was old, the lights were similar to the white lights you see at hospitals, and the whole restaurant was empty. My girlfriend ordered one of the drinks as a mock tail, and she pretty much got lemon juice which was super sour. We decided to try the whipped goat cheese for apps, and the bread it came with was heavily doused in salt and pepper, almost inedible. The cheese had a very funky taste and smell to it. It felt like they just grabbed it out of the freezer. I got the bistro burger for main, which was cooked okay, but the bun seemed to be just taken straight from the bag to my plate, no heating or butter. My girlfriend got the vegetable orzo, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that it tasted like nothing. It seemed to have a restraining order on any seasoning or anything that could give it some flavor. It looked and tasted reheated. We quickly left the place within 45 minutes of arriving. I will say that our waitress was very nice. Overall, probably the worst restaurant I’ve ever been to.

    Food choices were good. I did not see an area for select breads such as English muffins or croissants. I was hoping the foods would be labeled. The dessert ran out quickly. It was a very cold Sunday and we were sat outside. We needed to ask for a heat lamp. Found a server and asked for an heat lamp. and the first response was “sorry they are all being used”. The outside patio not full. Shortly after, however, a heat lamp was brought to the table. Thank you.

    This was our first time at the restaurant. It was close to the Dr Phillips PAC, which was why we decided to try it. The place was 80% bar and 20% restaurant. The food was fairly casual and the menu was limited. I had an orzo veggie pasta and an Italian Salad. Both were very good. My husband had a burger and liked it very much. No complaints there. What made our time at the restaurant less enjoyable was the very loud bar crowd and the even louder pounding music. I am sure that the crowd that patronizes this spot enjoys all of that, but it just wasn’t right for us. There is an interesting outdoor area that might have been nice to try if it had not been such a cold night. Would go back, if we could reduce the decibel level.

    Great food and service. They did have a dj and the music was too loud for conversation for me. Enjoyed the vibe but could have gotten by with a little quieter music.

    The food was fair but found a hair in two separate dishes , we ate outside & there were several people vaping which caused all of our clothes to smell like vape smoke . Not very family friendly when your 3 month old baby gets contact high at brunch .

    This was a disappointing experience. We booked for 5.30 on a Sunday evening. When we arrived our impression was this was primarily a bar which sells food. Only seating was at high top tables which would not have been our choice. We had no other option of seating as we were told most of the premises had been booked for two events. There was only one other couple eating and a very raucous party at the bar who shouted and screamed making conversation impossible. The one table furthest away from the noise was placed next to an open door. We had to keep our jackets on. The food was fine but the experience was awful.

    Reservations at 2pm for brunch but last call is at 2:15pm. Why offer a 2pm reservation if I only have 15 minutes to enjoy (which I didn't even get to order) "brunch." I had no server because she had to close out and dinner menu wasn't available until 4pm. Absolutely madness.

    It’s a great outside experience which is hard to find during the day however we had to pretty much beg for a replacement bottle. For 50$ per person we should have gotten our bottles replaced at a better rate. The food was very hit or miss. Some items tasted amazing while others were just terrible. I’d say up the quality for the price or bring the price down because it’s not matching.

    My friends and I had a great time. We were not really thrilled about sitting at the 4 top by the entrance as it was cold and rainy. However, our service was exceptional!! Wish I could remember our server’s name. She was totally awesome!! Think she might have also been the bartender. Anyway. She made our experience totally enjoyable

    I had my Birthday Brunch here with 22 people. The ambiance & the Food was perfect!! We were seated outside, I was a little concerned as it was cool outside but they have outdoor heaters & turned them on without us even asking. The Brunch is amazing!! I had the Brunch with unlimited mimosas which was under $50.00. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Ember

    Very attentive staff in servicing your visit. Staff members work together with such camaraderie. They go out of their way to be sure you have a pleasing and enjoyable visit. Music and atmosphere were a true vibe! Was a first visit, but for certain will return again. Maybe French Toast will be part of the brunch, available next time. 😉

    Food - subpar, Drinks/Soda - WATERED down. I would NOT recommend BRUNCH. Website says 2 hour table reservation but does not mention reservations later than 1 pm on Sundays will be cut short as food and drinks stop at 3pm. Value, too pricey for the low quality options provided. Happy to see my friends disappointed with the $$ spent.

    I received an email stating it was the grand opening. The email showed new food menu and a new chef. I made reservations only to be told that we could only get the buffet with the bottomless drink. The waitress only checked in on us once before disappearing. Needless to say it was clearing overpriced for the service we received. Very disappointing.

    We went for Sunday brunch and the only option is a buffet. Some of the food you could tell was sitting there for a while. They did have other options such as omelet made right then and there. Yet, our server was terribly lost most of the time. We waited about 20 minutes just to get a wrist band that would allow us to try the food. We did mention our issues to the manager but after that we had no server at all. We had to go to the bar to get drinks or anything after that. Unfortunately, the brunch price is not worth the food or the poor service.

    Terrible from the outset. The orders were all wrong. The food was terrible. Seven “layer” dip was like a blob from the trash. No management anywhere. The staff was really trying to do a good job, but they were left with no direction. It’s really a bar not a restaurant.

    The menu on open table was completely different to what was offered at the restaurant, which I should call a a bar and nightclub. It had a very limited menu and even when we ordered off it, they said they didn’t have some of the items. The drink selection besides bar drinks was very limited. The atmosphere was so strange when it was marketed as a restaurant, but was nothing of the sorts. If you want to coke here and party and drink this is the place to go. But don’t even try to have a nice normal dinner here because it isn’t going to happen.

    Made reservations for my birthday. Arrived and got a hot table in the sun because a family reunion showed up with WAY more people than they booked for. Was able to get an umbrella thankfully. The food wasn't bad, but there were visibly dirty plates on the buffet table which were supposed to be clean. I pulled a couple plates to find a clean one. The music is horrible. Young crowd but 80's music is playing... What gives? Live performance was also a bust for me. I just didn't expect THIS when I woke up and set out that beautiful morning. The crowd here and the waffles were probably the best part.
