Everything was horrible from start to finish, the staff is really rude, the food was under cooked, no one explained the payment options whenthey called to confirm my reservation. There was lipstick on the water cups, they turned on the lights and closed up while we were still drinking. One one said anything about closing at 11 when I was told 12 upon the original reservation l. I’ve been here so many times in the past 3 years! Haven’t been there with the new location and I’m not share if the management changed but I WILL NEVER be returning! I had all my friends out for my birthday and it was a horrible place to celebrate my birthday. Thank you Il Bastardo for letting me have a horrible experience on my birthday!
I had a great time music was on point. You will definitely want to come here for brunch if you looking for a day party. I just didn’t know you can only sit/have your table for only 2 hours so if your reservations are at 4pm please be on time(if u arrive at 430 you will have less time at your table). The server wasn’t prompt and they do rush you out towards the end of your session. The food was amazing and the party atmosphere was great.
Great atmosphere they need to improve their food. Fun that you can dance While brunching but it’s expensive for the food quality.
I celebrated my birthday here and I enjoyed every minute. music is good staff is great. I'll be back again.
Save your money. Wasn’t fun at all. Expensive and the food wasn’t good then we were rushed out of our table when the place was wmpty
Too expensive and the check was wrong. More things were added.
Amazing really appreciated everything. Staff was great
I had such a great time at I’ll
things have changed tremendously as far as the renovations and the fact that they do not give the average sized bottles for the meal there are tiny bottles I do not like that I don’t think I would be returning because the food is not that great to pay $75 dollars just to get a average size bottle of rose this place was the place to be because you KNEW you were going to get your own bottle . Well it was nice for what it was but I will not return
This place was pricey the food menu choices need to be change. The food was good tho. The dj was dope. Overall I had a good time for my bday.
A must go for brunch with ladies, to celebrate a birthday. Overall a great place!!
i went expecting the food to be bad based off of past reviews and they were not wrong. everyone who ordered something with home fries had cold home fries. you can tell they served it first then made everything else. other than that the vibe was cool.
This was my best-friend’s surprise brunch. I will NEVER EVER go back to this place. Everything you do adds money onto the bill. We were required to do a MANDATORY COAT CHECK where we each had to pay 5$. Keep in mind that when we were eating, we noticed people came in with their coats and weren’t “required” to check in. There was an ADMIN FEE ON TOP OF THE BRUNCH?! WHAT?! The food was not covered in the 75$ brunch deal. I had to pay an additional 15$ for the plate I wanted. The waiter was EXTREMELY rude & sarcastic. The long straws that were meant for drinking out of the bottles weren’t sealed which is very unhygienic. I kindly asked the waiter if he had any that were sealed and he decided to say “oh that’s a weird request I don’t understand what the problem is I’ve never heard that one before.” I asked for cups and he rolled his eyes and went to go get the glasses. When he arrived with the glasses he then said “is everything to your liking now?” very sarcastically. We finished eating and he brought the bill without notice and said I need this table cleared by 4. My friends and I put our cash and my card for the rest of the bill. The waiter charged me an EXTRA 100$ on my card “mistakenly” and proceeded with a refund. Not only was I out of 100$ bucks for the day but he didn’t make the situation better. He assumed a mere “sorry” sufficed. NEVER AGAIN will I spend my money in this establishment. Do I recommend it, NO ABSOLUTELY NOT.
The staff was a little rude and my food was cold.
Great ambiance!! But, over priced for breakfast foods. Fun place to celebrate a birthday with friends
So much fun
A few reasons I will not be returning
1. We were charged an admin fee on top of the gratuity.
2. The mandatory cash coat check was annoying.
3. Our waiter seemed annoyed and treated us like a burden. If I could’ve taken back the gratuity I would’ve.
4. Magically the credit card machine wouldn’t accept any of our cards. But of course the ATM did at $3 a transaction plus my bank fee. The next day I woke to see my card was actually charged $200 despite him showing me a declined receipt. Soo $200 plus the $650 I paid in cash means someone received an AMAZING tip. Of course I’m unable to get my money back, so Merry Christmas to whoever got over on me!
In the past I’ve enjoyed IL Bastardo, however it now seems they are doing way to much to milk money out of you. This added to the rude service is a complete turnoff. Despite this place being a good brunch spot, I will not be returning.
The place was nice and lively. I did not habe to wait a long time to.ne seated and receive my food.
I had the avocado toast it was surprisingly delicious my first time having poached eggs. The service was very good and the dj made the dance floor lit
Had a GREAT TIME, so worth it ! Would love to go back.
Couldn't be more happy about where i chose to spend my 25th birthday, the vibe was incredible. The food could be better but everything else 10/10
The place was fun, played good music but overall they were extremely over priced. You pay for the music, the food wasnt worth it
Had a great time, food was okay excepted a little better. Overall experience was fun loved the photographer that was there
I went to celebrate my boyfriends bday. We did the prefix brunch. He got a bottle of Dom and they brought it out with sparklers. It was amazing. Also they brought out a cake with a big happy birthday sign. The food was great. I had the chicken and waffles. Only thing i didnt like was that we couldnt order any side orders. It was so fun. We didnt want to leave !
Some of our food came out and for others we had to wait over 25 minutes for the rest of the food. Too many fees added to the bill.
Had a great time at Il Bastardo celebrating my 40th birthday - #ilbastardobrunchnyc #drinkbythebottle #champagnebrunch #sundaybrunch #sundayfunday #partybrunch #ilbastardo #ilbastardonyc #clubbrunch #birthday #brunchinthecity #nyc
Fun day party! Good for friends visiting NYC. You can hang for a long as you want but table is only good for 2 hours.
Went there to celebrate my birthday. The music was so loud it was hard to even tell the waiter our food order.
Food arrived cold. Then we ordered the birthday dessert package and the tiramisu glass arrived with someone elses gum on the bottom of the glass!! Then upon eating the dessert, we found a long hair in it
They also charge an obscene amount of surcharges on the bill so I would be prepared to pay an additional $150+ just in taxes
Don’t think I will return unfortunately.
Great ambiance. Set the ultimate party mood. Great twist on brunch. However I ordered classic eggs benedict and my eggs were not runny in fact the yolk was completely cooked. Not how eggs benedict are served. Security was welcoming and friendly. Front desk hostess was a bit crude and made me uncomfortable. Overall experience was satisfactory. Will definitely give it a try again. Maybe I can get greeted with a smile next time.
Went there for my birthday, it can be pricey so be aware that if you have a lot of friends they may be turned off by the price, but the food is great and you get a whole bottle of champagne to yourself. They ran out of birthday balloons but I was given a free birthday shot. I would definitely go back again for another brunch. Also music was good, they played a mix of old school reggae, hip hop and pop songs, more hip hop songs, they played 2chainz birthday every 25 minutes though lol, I guess because it is a birthday brunch.
Fantastic place. Fantastic fantastic fantastic fantastic
A little disappointed no birthday ballon as promised no birthday shout outs after requesting several times
Had to catch the waiter because they were very in organized
Music was good and food
Way overpriced, Slow service, they didn't have the balloons, food was cold. We just paid and left (287 for 4 people.) I left so fast I forgot my card and ID.......I called and left a message and no one has returned my call yet. (2 days later)
It's very expensive. There are a lot of fees that they tell you about when you arrive. There was a % for "entrance fee" and % for gratuity. They have a weird policy about only letting one credit card be used towards the bill. I wish I knew about those two things before booking. It was my friend's 21 birthday and they didn't throw anything in or do anything special for her unless we paid big bucks.
Expensive for literally nothing.
Bathrooms did not have toilet seats ...
Drinks were so tiny and not unlimited.
The waiter tried to overcharge us by $400 dollars.
Never going back again!!!
Yeah brunch!! Maybe some fun music, or a happy atmosphere, to go along with your personal bottle of booze.... Not so much... if you want ridiculously bad food and music pumping so loudly you can’t hear yourself, or your friends, talk- then this is the place for you. Fun? Not so much. I guess it has a niche if you want to go to a strip club atmosphere at noon dressed as if you’re one of the strippers and walk through puddles of spilled rosé, champagne, or bellinis.
Went for a friends birthday and was very disappointed. My food was not hot and the women’s bathroom stalls has NO toilet seats. For 100$ a person it was not worth it. Will not be returning
I had a great experience here and would have given this location 5 stars if I didn’t feel so rushed after eating. I understand that there’s a 2 hour time limit but we were seated after 12 and were asked to get up before 2. That’s where you lost points from me. But I will definitely come back and recommend to others!
Service is not great but okay. They ran out of the 45 dollar prix so everyone was forced to order the 75 dollar prix. They do not allow you to order food without the champagne.
