I made reservations 12:00am. The host told my friend that they do not do reservations for the weekend. After waiting for 30 mins I seen a table open and the next host told me that it was reserved for party of 6...?! Very contradicting... After waiting for 49 mins they finally gave us the open table.smh! Everyone seem bothered with no customer service ON THEIR CELLPHONES

Waitress kept forgetting things and place was not crowded. She didn’t write orders down and had our food mixed up. Didn’t or forgot to put an order of ours in

They ran out of macaroni and cheese I ordered the lobster bites it was literally 6 little pieces of fried lobster. The waiter also told us that it was a 2 hour seating limit but she was cool she let us sit there past the limit. At about 7 they close the shades and everybody smokes weed 😌 oh and they got hookah

The music was too loud to have a conversation with the people at my table. Guest were freely smoking marijuana next to us while we were eating.

It was exactly what it was... we just didn’t know what it was.... and that’s what it was.

My recommendation is this is a divine follow up to the Trap Museum. Tapas was a synonym in this case for starter... see Eclispse De Luna for definition of tapas

Came here for my birthday celebration and Escobar delivered! The only downside is my server was never available but she needs to thank her coworkers because THEY were spot on.

The entire experience sucked and it was my birthday! First the waitress told us we couldn’t order food until 5:30, it was 4pm, then it took forever for the food to come! Waitress tipped herself. Never again

I was extremely disappointed with the service I received. I reserved a table and was told it was bottle service only which I was okay with. When I got there however I was told I would have to wait because they just sat somebody else down who didn’t have a reservation. I waited for a good hour outside then left without ever getting my reserved table.

This was my first time at this establishment which was very excited to come after arriving was inform that the table that was reserved was bottle service only due to 3yrs Anniversary, after being called and confirmed that me and my party still was coming and was told to arrive early which I did was told we could not sit at our reserve table for 6 unless we purchase a bottle but that should have have been stated before we came, I just came to bring my sister in law to celebrate her bday after complaining we were able to sit order food drinks but then was rushed to move because we disnt order a bottle and the area wasnt even being sold at that time and I actually we purchased drinks food and still was rushed didnt like that at all, so we left and took our business to another establishment that was more welcoming and wasnt complaining about buying bottle service or where we could sit and it was another celebrity establishment that was more welcoming and extremely busy as well.

Our experience was AMAZING! The ambiance and set up was like no other. The food surpassed our expectations. Holly was an exceptional waitress. It was obviously she was busy, but she made us feel like a priority. Great personality. Kudos to Holly! Thanks to everyone from the hostess to hookah girl from helping me make my boyfriend 30th day a memorable one!

I booked a reservation and was there on time. When I approached the host stand their were 3 ladies there and neither one of the greeting me. I waited to see how long it would take for one of them to at least speak and neither of them ever did. I had to ask them for help and let them know I had a reservation for 5. They sat us at a small table that could barely accommodate 2 people. It was crowded, smoky, and entirely too loud. I had to yell at my friends just to talk. We ended up leaving a going someone else, so we did not try the food. The ambience seem to look nice, but I really couldn't tell because it was again crowded and smoky. Definitely, not what I expected. They might as well turn it into a club. I will not go back. However, to each its own clearly other guests may like it, but that just wasn't the vibe I was going for.

The food and service were excellent. I was a little disappointed with the appearance of the bathrooms. The valet parking is very expensive and this is not a high end restaurant. The valet parking should have been either cheaper or waived for using the establishment. The noise level could have been decreased a little.

Our reservation was at 10:15pm. Online it says if you are 10 mins late they can give your spot up. It also says online the table is 2 hours max. So we arrived early, why was there no table ready at 10:15pm ? It turned into 11:00pm still NO TABLE..... WE LEFT !!!! No point in reservation if you can’t Actually sit down when you reserve !!!!!!!! HORRIBLE

Great place for brunch. The DJ was great, the food was really good, the staff was friendly, and it was just a great atmosphere over all. It took us a while to get our hookah but the waitress explained that there was only one person doing it and we were having a good time anyway just drinking and dancing to the music.

We are a lively couple that loves music from Trap to Neto soul and this bar definitely satisfies on all levels the food was soooo good and the portion is enough to share. I got the chicken and waffles for brunch and he got the chicken and gravy biscuits and we had left overs!!!! So good!!!

It was a nice and chill atmosphere' We came for my daughter 30th birthday and even though she had a bad day' took her car to be service and ended up having to have it towed home because they messed it up... I told her that this was her special day and we will deal with that later, but tonight we're going to go to this place and have fun and I can say it truly was nice from the guest host and bartenders and the COOK'

I bragged about this place to a friend visiting. Made my reservation on opentable. Paid my $20 for valet in the back. Went inside after having my id checked and my bae got patted down which was cool. But then we go inside and we are at the hostess stand and two waitresses are just standing there talking to each other ignoring us. So another girl walks up and basically moves them outta the way to help us. So she seats us at a very uncomfortable round small 2 seater table where we didn’t have enough room to put anything and then forgets to bring us back menus. So the waitress gets them and could only find one (shortage on menus) and it was raggedy and tore up. So we ordered drinks and I watched them sitting getting watered down. She finally brings them and was about to leave when I said we need to order. We order, got more drinks cuz the food took so long and then the food came and we didn’t have silverware. So she brings some and we don’t see her again til I had to stop her for our check and a small box. The music was SO LOUD all over its impossible to talk at all so it made it awkward. The bill came up to $183, I reluctantly left $210.00 I believe. For that much, I expect much better service and better food options and all. I was high key disappointed with the attitudes and service but I would love for this place to offer an environment that’s fun and party like but somewhat reasonably less loud. I’ve been to lots of places with loud music but I guess the speakers are placed better so the customers can talk too
