Very accommodating for children as well. My party had a 2yo and they had high chairs, coloring pages, and coloring materials on hand. Food is also very good, just expensive but it is downtown so it’s just the usual. Thank you!

Food was great. Great service from waitress. Ambiance was okay. Restaurant was not very clean. Flies and bees inside the restaurant. Price was a bit high for what you get.

I ordered the Korean Tacos and I love Korean flavors, but the tacos were terrible. There was too much sauce which drowned out any of the other flavors. The presentation was less than stellar. My friends ordered corned beef hash and the other guest's sandwich looked like a patty melt with fries. I ordered a mimosa while waiting for my frieds and it was ok. We ordered a pitcher for the table. Overall it was a very unimpressive meal. The people were great, the diner was lovely and ample outdoor seating. But, I paid $19 to valet park. The check was $122.00 plus gratuity. For roughly $160.00 there are better food options. I really wanted to like this place. But the food didn't do it for me.

Really, incredibly disappointing breakfast/brunch experience.
Made reservation, was seated quickly, all going well. Orders taken for drinks, which were appropriately brought out, though partner’s cappuccino took a while compared to my bevs but fine, no problem. But From there it however it disintegrated. Ordered a few items to eat. Order brought out by not our server, which is totally fine except our server never returned to check on us. One item arrived cold, one item missing. She finally came over, we told her not to worry about the missing item and just remove from check, no problem, but asked for condiment. She never brought, did not return again until I basically flagged her down to ask for a box and our check. Super slow to even get that taken care of, the entire time she seemed annoyed by us. I hadn’t been here in years but something has changed since I last went. My breakfast was quite delicious so I’m very sad to have to post this review, but service was not what used to be. I know with Covid people are down staff, but not even checking in with us? We watched the tables around us get faster service. Maybe we just didn’t order enough to make it worth time? Hopefully was a fluke given prior experience.

The first time my husband and I first discovered this place on a short vacation, we went 2-3 in one trip. It was that good and the dishes were unique, even the names were unique... Elvis waffles and such. Sooooo good! This time... meh. It was find. We were so disappointed we had hyped it up to our family. The menu was very limited because of COVID. Hopefully, they will be able to get back to amazing food selections soon.

The food was amazing, we order the Los Drowned sandwich and the Smoked corned beef hash with eggs and some smoked fries as a side.
The sandwich was perfect the beef was really rich. The smoked flavor on the fries was a amazing we weren’t expecting a really smoked flavor on them.
When we were leaving we decided to order a Reuben to go.
The service was 10/10 very good recommendations and very fast.

Didn’t enjoy the food. Menu was trying too hard to be edgy / unique and lacked standard breakfast entree option beyond pancakes and cinnamon roll.

Food was good! Love all the fusion of different cultures and flavors. I wouldn’t sit out doors again. It was very pleasant but the bees wouldn’t leave us alone! One landed in my chai latte and couldn’t get out. My daughter was scared so we just had her meal boxed. Our server Peter was very nice and got me another chai in a to-go cup with a cover.
