    Sadly, Hazel isn’t managing their OpenTable account well. We made a reservation for brunch, were excited to try this place, walked 1.5 miles in the cold to get there, only to find it completely closed for the day with zero notice. We improvised with another nearby restaurant (Haikan), but this shouldn’t have happened.

    We have had some great dinners here pre-COVID. Unfortunately, brunch was a total disappointment. We ordered lamb sausage, and we were sever slices of fatty meat with bones attached (not ground sausage). The eggplant hash was mainly potatoes, which were soaked in oil and seemed to have been fried multiple times. The only bright spot was the kale tahini salad, which was lovely.

    Forcing guests to put on masks every time the server approaches makes no sense. It also makes it impossible to have an enjoyable meal. Use science to make policies. This just is not logical.

    Delicious food and attentive service on an amazing patio. But most importantly, their Covid precautions are the best we’ve seen anywhere. I’d feel comfortable taking my parents there.

    Hazel is excellent, and they’ve taken significant efforts to reopen with physically distanced outdoor dining. The menu and staff are scaled back, and they seem still to be learning how to create a genuinely pleasurable experience while remaining duly cautious.

    Excellent service and the food and cocktails were amazing. The duck was divine. I had dinner reservations booked 20 days in advance and decided to attend dinner amidst COVID-19 concerns. I appreciated that HAZEL management and staff made active/visible measures to ensure the safety and health of their staff, as well as customers (ie: our server visibly applied hand sanitizer multiple times, tables set apart). Similarly, we made visible efforts to ensure we were practicing good hygiene. Wonderful meal.

    Great brunch! Awesome Mediterranean/modern American mashup. Given my affinity for traditional omelets and eggs Benedict, I was a little nervous when I didn’t recognize half the words on the menu, but server was super friendly and helpful and the food tasted absolutely amazing. Perfectly cooked, great flavor. The coffee was how I like my county’s leaders- STRONG! Great place

My husband is allergic to spicy food and Adam was very attentive to his needs, even asking the chef to accommodate when possible. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    Everything was great but at the very last moment one waiter asked as to leave the table because he wanted to use it. Interestingly there were other tables available next to our table. A little disappointing that they have young inexperienced people without very much supervision. I found it very rude after spending so much money to be kicked out like that for no reason just because they wanted the table.

    Good food but a less than ideal experience. We had to wait 30 mins for our table despite having a reservation, and when we were seated it seemed like we were placed into a makeshift table between two other tables so that our elbows were touching others on both sides. We could barely hear one another.

    Hard to remember the food because the service was abysmal. They forgot to take our order so we sat there for 30 minutes, with no waitress is sight. Then once we gave our order, the food took over one hour to arrive. However, once the food arrived, they missed half of our order and seemed incredulous that we were still waiting on three more dishes. So we had to wait another 30 minutes for them to bring us the food they forgot to put in. The service was absolutely atrocious.

    We arrived at the appointed time; our table wasn’t ready for about 30 minutes. The management took care of us and made the wait bearable. We were asked to sit by the bar, presented with sparkling wine and appetizers,and elegantly comped them. When our table was ready our transfer was done in such a way that we felt “transported” to our table. It was that smooth. Thank you! We will certainly come back!!

    Went to Hazel for restaurant week. Instead of the typical 3 ish entree options found on a R.W menu, Hazel had about 5-6 which was a nice change of pace but also made choosing dishes difficult! The dips we got were delicious, as were the drinks. The entree portions were a bit small but still tasty. Our servers were friendly and when one accidentally spilled my friend's drink, the drink was immediately replaced although there was not much left. I would recommend and would like to return for brunch.

    The food was good, but took too long to come out. When the bread dips-which are supposed to be a central part of the experience-did come out, we only got one piece of bread for the two of us. I asked for a second and was told they were coming out because they had to be baked, but they didn't come out until 20 minutes later, with the main course. That being said, the whole experience was definitely subpar because we had to sit on the patio in the freezing cold. The heaters were barely enough, and while we were 5 minutes late past the reservation grace period, I had called ahead of time to explain we were stuck in unexpected traffic. It would have been nice for the restaurant to allow us some leeway to sit inside in the warmth since it was an anniversary dinner. The host did graciously offer us some Turkish wine to help us warm up, but we don't drink. That gesture was nice though.

    We arrived right on time for our reservation but were told the restaurant was significantly overbooked and we could sit outside if we wanted. Given the temperature (although did have heaters) it was quite chilly. We waited outside for over an hour before a table was open for us. Overall the food was delicious, but the amount of food for the price was surprising. Between 4 of us we spent over $200 on dinner (not including the drinks in the cold) and left somewhat hungry. So - while yummy - the price for value was low - but we'd go back but with different expectations - snacks not dinner.

    Everything was amazing. Just got back and had to do a review. The service was amazing in that multiple people stopped by to check on us, not just our main server, Kavon, who was also perfect. And apparently, all the servers share tips so there is incentive for everyone to take care of everyone. It was the perfect amount of attentiveness. Everything we ordered was at the same time full of flavor, but not overbearing with any one ingredient. We got the tahini for our bread and it was great. The brussel sprouts with the egg was fresh and delicious (not cooked to death like brussels at many spots). The crispy rice with the duck confit was amazing both in texture and understated flavor. The short ribs were absolutely scrumptious. Melted in my mouth, and again the flavor is on point - not overkilled with spices, but perfectly prepared to allow the flavor of the actual food to come through with absolute appropriateness. The ambiance and the drinks were on point. Great place for intimate conversation, and an overall relaxing environment. Looking forward to going back in the spring to enjoy their large outdoor seating area, which looks equally inviting. HIGHLY recommend.

    Service was friendly but somewhat aloof. We were seated at a table right next to an open kitchen, so there was tons of traffic from wait staff and distracting noise coming from the kitchen. I understand they are trying to utilize what would otherwise be wasted space, but why would you ever put a waiter staging area right next to people dining? Most of the food was good. You could tell it was made from fresh ingredients, but it was not all that creative. Only two or three items on the limited menu were eye popping. Overall, it is over priced for food and a disappointed atmosphere in an otherwise trendy neighborhood.
