    I hate sending food back. However, when the bacon is cold, you must send it back. My gumbo that was supposed to have crab in it did not have one piece of crab, but I did not say anything. But now my omelet that was supposed to have onions in it did not have one onion in it; I had to say something at that point. Just check your food at this place.

    Thanks for visiting us, Jose. We're truly sorry to hear about your experience. We always strive to provide our customers with the best quality food and service, and it's clear we missed the mark during your visit. We take your comments about the cold bacon and the missing onions seriously and assure you that we'll work on improving our food preparation. We hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future. Best, The Management Team at Hearsay Market Square.

    The atmosphere & overall feel of the restaurant is great! We felt the music to be a little loud for a Sunday lunch and the service was so so...friendly wait staff but not very helpful or punctual. Food is decent but not worth the price. Id recommend this place for drinks and apps but not a main sit down meal

    Food was great. Service was great (everyone was super friendly and helpful). Love the ambiance/setting and the location. Table was a little cramped and the bench seat on one side is about 4-6" lower than the chair on the opposite side. Overall, love this place and will definitely go back.
