I didn’t know it was a fixed price with a brunch menu. We are not drinkers so all the mimosas and bloody mary’s unlimited made the meal very expensive for what we got. I would come back for the dinner menu, but not for brunch. Service was great!!

Great outdoor seating with the pods. You will feel safe and the heating was more than adequate. Superb wine list and great pasta and pizza . Each time I come back consistently good service.

Lovely, spacious decor with safe indoor dining - tables and booths separated by distance and plexiglass. Restaurant invested in new HVAC system. Very attentive waitstaff. The Grand board was perfect for our party of 4. Wait staff suggested wines to pair with this. Also had some assorted appetizers- the grilled octopus was amazing- meaty and spicy! Also, highly recommend the meatball sliders. We shared one of their delicious pizzas and had some to take home. Great evening and safe indoor dining experience. Would highly recommend.

We had a bottle of champagne and it was really warm and they didn’t even put ice to keep it cold. The food was tasty to my girlfriend and I

I’ve ordered additional food to go and the portion was extremely small. I was extremely disappointed when I saw how small the portion was. It was a waste of $26.00

Went last night for Valentines Day and my girlfriend and myself got very sick hours after. Wrong food was brought the first time, wasn't informed that we only had 90 minutes to eat the meal after making the reservation, found out they weren't doing the cheese fondu either after getting there.

This was not my first visit to this restaurant. I am a returning customer because my past experiences were amazing. Not sure if my dissatisfaction was due to Valentine’s Day or the new indoor dining guidelines. I was totally disappointed and not sure if I would be returning.

My husband and I had our first date here 17 years ago (when it was called Victory). We decided to visit for Valentine’s brunch this year and we are so glad we did! The food was outstanding, the bottomless mimosas were delicious and our waiter, Raymond, was an absolute delight. On top of all that, the ambiance was just so perfect! Very romantic! We are already planning to return for another date night.

Three of us came for Valentine’s Day brunch. Fabulous outdoor seating in heated igloos. Splendid service from our waitress. Although flatware should be changed between courses and not dropped on the second course dish. We were pleased to find a wide variety of menu selections. The food was delicious and plated beautifully. The dessert was less enticing. The cookies and zeppoli were a bit bland. Novitas amazing chocolate mousse would have been a much better choice!

Girlfriend and I made a reservation for valentines day brunch. The Brunch meal we got included appetizer, entrée and dessert for a reasonable price. The food itself was delicious as were the bottomless mimosas. The staff was lovely and very receptive to questions. We will certainty be returning soon.

Had my birthday dinner here with my +1 only. We came out from Queens. I liked the vibe and friendly staff. Parking was super easy and the restaurant did a good job of spacing out the tables for social distancing. The food was good.

We got seated immediately upon arrival. The service was excellent. We loved most of the food. The fondue had a bit too much flour or corn starch--whatever was used to thicken it was clearly too much. I suggest to raise the price and put in more cheese. Everything else we ordered was great. The DJ made our night. Lots of great, recognizable songs. Loved it.

This was my second time here and each time, I am extremely satisfied. The food is delicious and the service was prompt, especially since seating is limited to 90 minutes or 120 minutes, depending on your party size. The booths are perfect because they give you a greater amount of distance from other patrons and make the ambiance more intimate.
