Nice ambiance, but the food was disappointing. There was barely any dressing on the spinach salad. We ordered pizza with sausage and mushrooms and all ingredients (including the sauce and cheese) were very sparse. If I return, I will not order pizza.

Sunday brunch was great. My wife had the brunch buffet of smoked salmon, fresh fruit and antipasto, which she loved. I had the breakfast pizza and my son had the Margherita pizza, which were both delicious. The Bloody Mary was great too, but we just ordered it off the bar menu for $6 rather than the Bloody Mary Bar for $12. We will definitely be back!

This is a wonderful place if you don't mind loud sports oriented people. This isn't the place to go for a quiet get together or lunch meeting. It is a busy happening place with great food, service and superb beverages.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were afforda

Our table was seated and it was 10 -15 minutes to see a server, even thou servers walked past our table. It took talking to the manager to actually get a server and then she took our food order. The hostess got our drink orders after asking to see a server. The food was pretty good. Hopefully the service will catch up to the food.

Good ambiance. Service was average. Autumn in New York cocktail was tasty. Salad and French bread were good. Balsamic chicken pizza was just okay. Very little sauce and crust was soggy. But we’ll be back since we live in the neighborhood and enjoy walking there.

I think we have an over abundance of wood fired pizza places popping up and the pizza here I did not find had much flavor and the goat cheese gratin I ordered for an appetizer was mediocre. The Mac and cheese was by far the best Mac and cheese I have ever had so would definitely go back just for that and The jalapeño strawberry margarita but don’t feel it’s worth the price.

The food was tasty. But the underside of the crust of the wood fired pizza was very soggy. We complained and they were very gracious about it and made us another one. Unfortunately, the second pizza came with the same result. They were very busy and one of the workers told us that might be why the pizza crust was so soggy. That’s no excuse in my opinion. Wood fired pizza should have a crispy underside. Busy is probably why it also took more than 15 minutes to get a cup of soup. The drinks came fast though and were good pours.

The wood fire pizza is delicious and the reason to eat here. The full salads are huge and good but could use some more dressing and pepper on the table. The chicken wings are also very good but the hottest are not very hot. The ambience is very chic and modern but the windows needed blinds to block the late afternoon sun that was blinding our table. The server was excellent but had lots of tables.

Service was good at first, but as the evening went on our waiter all but disappeared. In the end, it took 20 minutes just to get a check, then another 10 minutes for someone to come retrieve payment. The food was good, except for desert, S’mores Pizza, which was terrible. Upon leaving, the valet almost hit me as he pulled out without looking.

Atmosphere, service, and beer were really good. We ordered Fire wings, Ricotta pizza, jerk chicken pizza, and Mexican hot chocolate cheesecake. The crust on the pizza was excellent, but the jerk pizza, Fire wings, and Mexican hot chocolate cheesecake had no spice at all. Pairing basil with the wings and mango with jerk chicken was great, but would have been much better with a spicy burn. I would go back to try other dishes that are not supposed to be spicy. Expect typical Midwestern bland food if you order a dish that would normally have some spice.

We've been here many times and it's hard to order something new because we like what we usually get. Our friends followed suit -- salads (a half salad is big enough to split) and a variety of wings. The beignets were a nice finish -- one order for the 4 of us.

Upon arrival we were greeted by hosts and shown our table so we could get in on the happy hour pricing before it expired. Appreciated that very much. We had good service thought our meal. Our meal was as we expected and we enjoy our selections tuna tacos,mussels,salmon flatbread, and house wines by the glass. We ordered a shared desert of cheesecake and upon receiving it we were told it was complimentary because it had taken longer than expected to receive. This was much appreciated.

I took my parents to Peel for Sunday Brunch on the recommendation of a friend. We beat the rush and got there at 10:30 so it was nice and quiet. The service was amazing! Our waiter was Chris. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and attentive! The food was wonderful and very plentiful. Having not been there before we all ordered a breakfast item from the A La Carte and added two buffets. We left with three to go boxes of food. The atmosphere was wonderful. We sat on the brew side (with the low tables.) It had a great family atmosphere and was able to accommodate two large parties in the same area without the noise becoming too loud or it feeling too crowded. The bar area is a good size and was picking up in traffic when we left. I would definitely go back for happy hour or dinner!

We love the Edwardsville, IL location so my daughter picked this location to celebrate her 27th birthday. The hostess/server was fantastic and gave us great tips on beverages, appetizers and entrees. The only negative is that they would’nt accommodate us on special request to mark my daughters birthday. ☹️ We’ll be back, though.

We heard good things about the pizza here. We were greeted by the host and seated right away. We were aware that there was a private party going on at the same time. We sat for some time before our server came over and we ordered beers that took forever to arrive. The "bar was backed up" was the excuse. These were not complicated mixed drinks, just a couple of beers. We were encouraged to order a pizza for each person, 5 of us, and it was way more than needed. But the girls were able to take the leftovers home. The pizzas were very good, thin crust and very fresh ingredients. But again, a long wait for our food. Our server was nice but didn't really pay a lot of attention to us. While we were there a couple of other folks complained to the manager about the slow service and made quite a bit of a scene. I overheard the manager comp their food. Maybe just a bad night, but not a good overall experience.
