It’s a cool space with interesting cocktails. They don’t have a lot of variety when it comes to food and the entrees aren’t exciting. They are quite expensive though. I would come back but for appetizers and drinks. Not a full meal.

Not one employee was wearing a mask. We will not go back. The brussel sprouts were delicious. The fish tacos were good but the sides it came with (refried beans and rice) were ice cold.

It was very nice & beautiful inside but this place made me feel like i had to shout across the table. Our server was real nice, but the food was not it. Had no flavor, selection was not good either. Price was not worth it

Things were a bit disorganized. No waiter came to our table for 30 mins - we had to ask for service (there was a miscommunication apparently). We had happened to flag down the owner to request service and he said he would comp our drinks and apps but when our bill came nothing was comped. We just paid and left.

Great atmosphere, food, and service. They looked at my notes and gave me a private area to host a small, work gathering. Food and drinks were delicious.

Interesting menu for brunch. The breakfast egg rolls and chicken and waffles were great. Check out the brunch cocktails. I like the large, open garage doors that brought the outdoors indoors without having to side outside.
Music was very loud when we first arrived. Our waiter turned it down to make conversation possible.
Overall, a great choice for brunch.

Went for a pre concert dinner at the Summerfest grounds. We had the Brussel sprouts app, impossible burger, regular burger and the fried chicken. All were outstanding. Brussel sprouts were so good, the maple syrup and crispy sprouts was such a great combination. The fried chicken had one of the best coatings ever! The server was very attentive, quick and polite. I’d go back again in a heartbeat.

We had a great dining experience! We were late for our reservation due to an accident on the freeway. I called to let them know and the were happy to hold our table and glad we let them know. The food was great and portions were more than generous! We will be back again.

Very unique menu, which honestly had us question it before hand, it seemed so unusual, but they were willing to give us a reservation for 7 plus a baby, so we took it. Turns out the food was beyond amazing and the service was fantastic. Has a fun vibe as well. We will return and recommend highly!

This was my second time going. We had been there for dinner once before but I wanted to try their Sunday Brunch. The brunch was amazing. We both had the cinnamon roll french toast and it was a life-changing experience. This is definitely going to become one of our go-to places from now on. I love the space. It's wide open and the restaurant can be open to the outside air when the day is pleasant. They also have outdoor seating.

Had a wonderful brunch at Merriment yesterday. Really enjoyed their unique approach to brunch food. We had breakfast potstickers, breakfast burrito and monkey bread. Also a delicious mocktail with blackberry juice, basil and sparkling water. Fun and lively atmosphere. Highly recommend
