The food was delicious. Our appetizer was cold. However, the entrees came out fresh. The service was very poor. We sat at the bar and no one acknowledged us. Not one person came over to wait on us, so I asked to be moved to a table. A couple that was waiting behind us was placed at the bar where we were initially sitting. They too were not acknowledged or served after a good bit of time- well over ten to fifteen minutes. They decided to leave. All in all, the food was delicious but the service was horrible. I can definitely be one and done with this type of atmosphere.

It was a pretty good time, food was tasty but kind of spicy. The Hennessy drink was not strong at all. Definitely go with the D’Usse, will have you felling right at the end of the night.

It’s always tough to get reservations here but the food and ambiance are always well-worth it. I highly recommend anything from the impressive assortment of chicken and waffles. My fiancée and I went on a double date with my brother and his wife and there was not a scrap of food or drink left over on the table afterwards. There was a live DJ there on our last visit which made it difficult to hear our server and each other but I won’t complain because everyone else in the restaurant seemed to enjoy it. I recommend subscribing to their notification emails so that you know when reservations open and I even more highly recommend reserving a table as soon as the notification email comes.

10 out of 10.

While the food was great, we waited over an hour and a half before we received our food. And some of our food was not hot. Our server was not attentive. We had to look for her to ask for various things. Overall, while we enjoyed the food for the most part, the long wait for our food coupled with an inattentive server did not make for a good experience.

I had a reservation for 1:00 PM. After standing in line in the beaming sun I was able to check in around 1:15pm. At that time I was asked to give them 15-20 mins to get our table ready. I sat in the car for 20 mins without receiving a text that my table was ready. I stood in line again for at least 15 minutes in the hot beaming sun because it was too many people standing inside the door that were also trying to check in. While standing in line I received a text that my table was ready at 1:46 PM. I stood in line inside for about 5 mins just to let them know I received my text. After being seated we ordered an appetizer and drinks that came out fairly quick. We placed our food order around 2:30 PM. We waited 1 hour 30 mins before our food was finally brought out around 4:00 PM. During the wait our waitress Courtney was very apologetic, professional and nice. She advised us he kitchen was backed up at one point and that our orders would be out soon.l, which still took another 30 mins or more. She did provide us with a free appetizer for the wait. A female that I assume was part of the management staff did agree to comp something on our tickets, and she did take $20 off 3 of our tickets and $30 off the 4th persons ticket. While wait for our food we did notice other tables that came in after us received their meals before we did which was very upsetting. Our food did come out hot and fresh right when we were about to give up and leave. I’ve been here several times and never received this type of service. I feel that our entire meals and drinks should have been comp’d due to everything we experienced during this visit,

Embarrassed to say the least. My party was unable to sit together for a birthday celebration and their "gatekeeper" wasn't hearing me and shut me and the server down in trying to make a request to at least be in the same area.

Today is my friends 40th bday! We made reservations like it’s required!! We arrive and your restaurant is closed!!!! Y’all could have emailed or text that y’all needed to close! Thanks for nothing! This is the third time y’all had a customer service issue that y’all handled poorly! 1) time cancel out of the blue stating it was opentable issue releasing more tables! 2) greasy floor by the bar and no one cared. 3) now this!!!

The food was amazing and the young lady who was our server was very thorough. She was managing the bar and waiting tables. She did great and worked well under pressure and made it seem effortless. My only note, I would prefer to come earlier in the day without the live music, it was extremely loud and difficult to enjoy a conversation with the person I was with. That is just my personal preference!

The food and service was great. Didn't like having to wait an extra 15 minutes after the reservation time to be seated then on top of that being seated at a wobbly table. The server was great but the ambience was lacking. I thought this was supposed to be a fine dining type of establishment but it's just like a regular place. The prices don't match the atmosphere

Very slow service...1.5 hrs to receive 2 entrees. Other parties arrived, ate and left before we got our food. Had to engage a manager as numerous conversations with server yielded no results. Food was good but not worth the extensive wait.

The food was fantastic. I had the fried fish, pork chops, greens, yams and deviled eggs. All tasty. But while I love good food, service is just as important and I will say Service left something to be desired. Our sever was working behind the bar and trying to take care of us. He was negligent and inattentive and we had to ask for simple things like silver ware and water multiple times before receiving them.

The service from the waitress to the manager was poor. It took a long time to bring out our drinks and appetizer. When we asked for silverware that took a long time for them to bring out also. The appetizer was getting cold. The wait time for our food was almost an hour. We requested to see the manager, but she was in a meeting and was never told we wanted to see her. When she came over to our table after flagging her down, she apologized and offered a free dessert, which we never received. She never brought it out to us and never showed her face at our table again. Very, very, poor service for the price. SMH!

The food is amazing, but the wait time & customer service needs tweaking. I made a reservation far out in advance & had to wait 50 minutes after arriving. My reservation was in the late evening. After finally being seated, we immediately placed orders for drinks & appetizers. It was another 15 minutes for our drinks & 30 for our appetizers. Once our appetizers came, we asked for small plates to share amongst the table and was told we couldn’t get any because the kitchen was closing. After waiting another 35 minutes, our entrees arrived which we’re missing sides from each order.

Again, the food is amazing but this place really needs to take it up a notch with the customer service & wait times. Waiting 50 minutes for a reservation defeats the entire purpose of a reservation.

Overall it’s a 6.5 - 10 i enjoyed It would recommend. The music was extremely loud so you will be yelling at each other. The food was good and some of the food was okay but I’ll stick to what i get which is lamb chops. The drinks were strong A++. Our server was great his name is JT. Everyone should go and place judgment for themselves because It really is a good experience overall.
