We started off with a poor experience. The host was rude, and condescending. She made us feel like an inconvenience. We almost left after our interaction with her, but we had a larger party, and there was nowhere else that could accommodate us all. The restaurant and bar area are very loud. Hard to hold a conversation. The menu was fairly limited, but the food was good, and our server was very friendly.

The service was fantastic, great staff. The food was just okay. There was nothing wrong with it, except my egg whites were not fully cooked. But, other than the Brussels app, it wasn’t exceptional either. I didn’t feel like I wasted my money but I probably wouldn’t go back.

We were in the back room so it provided a nice space to be able to have a full conversation with no struggle. Staff was attentive while also giving space, never once had to ask for a refill on water. Really nice ambiance and the food was delicious. Great addition to the city!

It was our first time here and overall we enjoyed the food we ordered for brunch. Drink prices were a bit high but that’s the trend right now so it’s to be expected. It was the staff that we loved about our experience though. We sat at the bar and our bartenders were very nice and friendly. The wait staff and hostess were also very friendly. Oh, and food and drinks came to us quickly!

Some of the food was well prepared and quite tasty while other parts not so much. The real downside was the noise level - it was difficult to carry on a conversation. However, the service was excellent.

My wife and I had a great experience. We enjoy sitting at the bar and indulging in a slow, multi course dinner. Cyntia, our bartender, was accommodating and gracious. We never felt rushed and food service was timed perfectly.

Falafel waffle was good but very small waffle with a huge mountain of greens. Sweet potato gnocchi was delicious but waaaaaay too much very rich sauce. The rest of the table had salads which were good but nothing special. Service was very slow. We were there more than half an hour before we got our drinks. Overall, disappointing. The menu and reviews looked so good but we were underwhelmed.

Our service was slow, every dish was cold, the burrito was barely stuffed and the tortilla had hardened to the point of being almost un-cuttable, the "runny" egg atop the chicken and biscuits was hard, and the last dish came out significantly after all the others. So disappointing.

Really cool vibes, delicious food, and great location. Everyone was really impressed with the food and we are already talking about going back. The music is definitely loud though, probably too loud for evening dining, but maybe it’s good for night drinking?

You know it’s not a good sign when you have to ask the host stand to send over someone to actually serve you after sitting helplessly for 10 minutes while watching a bunch of servers just stand around. This place is trying to be somewhat upscale but with some of the worst service I’ve experienced at comparable establishments. Just a “hey, what do you want to order?”

Food was actually really good but because of the service I can’t imagine I’ll be returning anytime soon.

The charcuterie board was good but over priced for what you get. I only ate half my salmon because half of it was still raw. The shrimp and grits lacked favor. I’ve been dying to go to this place and it let me down big time. I will not be back.

This place is amazing! The food is delicious, and the mixed drinks are tasty. The sweet potato gnocchi was out of this world, and the American burger had great flavor. The noise level inside can get quite loud. The only complaint from my last visit is our server was pushy in trying to clear us out.
