    The food and service were very good. The unfortunate aspect of the restaurant is the drab, corporate, characterless appearance of the decorating, furniture, etc.

    Easter brunch. Host and hostess were welcoming. Serving staff was friendly and attentive. The food was reasonably priced and delicious. I recommend the short rib hash.

    Mixed review. Food and service were very good overall, but not excellent. Good neighborhood casual atmosphere but not truly worth the price.

    The waitress was a complete disaster. She never put the food order in. Came over and asked if we were ready to order after 45 min when we had already told her what we had wanted and she had written it down.

    Food and service was very good! The Kale salad had an amazing flavor! The Veggie burger was delicious. The ribs and vegan bowl were also good! The steak was a bit overcooked, that was our only complaint. We got to play some pinball after dinner!
