We enjoyed the food and friendly service. The gumbo was excellent, with complex flavor but without resorting to being too spicy. The entrees were also very good, and the servings were generous. We'll be back.
Arrived at 9:55a for a 10a brunch reservation. Food arrived at 10:35.
- Brunch menu is extremely limited
- Service is slow; presentation below par
- Food overall near horrible - below average
- Omelette made to order but no list of ingredients to select from; think of ingredients and they tell you if they have them. 🧐
- Pancakes and potatoes were ok.
I would not return or recommend. The pictures of the food and interior do not accurately reflect the reality. The presentation of the food could not be more misleading.
Too many brunch choices in the Memphis area to waste time and money on such a over priced FAUX fine dining experience. Don’t waste your time or money.
Everything was outstanding, including the customer service. I would defiantly plan to come back
After reading the reviews for G Alston, I was really excited about sharing a new, excellent dining experience with friends. We miss Cafe Fontana but looked forward to this cuisine. The Mac n Cheese hush puppies were outstanding. The rest of the meal - just average. We had to send the waiter back 3x to get knives for 2 filets and lamb. He was non-attentive and left dirty dishes on the table. We had to ask to have them removed. The catfish was a small piece of meat but tasty - lamb was small too. The bread pudding was chilled and avg (even though we asked to have it heated) and the cobbler was mainly crust - very little blueberries and peaches. The filet was good but not the "cuts like butter" description - even though it did have a partially melted butter on top. I would like to try this restaurant again because I am hoping I caught the service and food on an off night but it will be a while. The ambiance was really nice and the host was gracious. I believe the wine menu will increase in time because of the recent license to sell alcohol.
Great atmosphere! Service was excellent. Expect a wait time for food to be cooked to to order and perfection. The attentive service and delicious bread makes the worth it all
