    Brunch- the place was really nice. Beautiful decor nice music and vibes. the food was alright, however the drinks were flowing. Definitely worth your money to do the all inclusive brunch! The food , could use more options.

    I was extremely disappointed in the whole experience. My first time at Policy was last year for a friends birthday and it was amazing. This time, exact opposite. The mimosas were terrible, the mix they use is not orange juice but orange peach crush so we had to have the waiter switch it out 3 times. The food was Terrible also. Came here with a party of 5 for my bday we all left extremely hungry and agitated. The food last time I came was amazing I just don't understand. I won't be returning. I'm seriously considering contacting management because no one should have to experience this so called "brunch". It's more of a place to go to take pictures for the ambiance. Don't come here if your hungry at all! So sad!

    Highly disappointed in the food selection at Policy - they had NO brunch sides! Not even a side of French fries or home fries. It's brunch. You want potatoes with your bottomless brunch drinks. Disappointed in the portion sizes as well - VERY small and sad looking huevos rancheros.

    It's definitely a party brunch. It was St. Patrick's Day, and people were having a good time. The service was pretty terrible though. I think it made it difficult, because we were a large party and didn't all arrive at the same time, but some people were waiting close to a half hour for drinks. But once everyone had drinks they brought over big pitchers of mimosas so everyone had plenty to drink. They also gave us free shooters. The food was terrible though. It came cold. And it was pretty overpriced. But they comped the food and gave us the free shots. I would just not necessarily recommend this place for food. It's more of a dance club kind of place.

    Awful service, they only had 2 people tending to all the brunch tables and those at the bar. Took forever just to get their attention or drinks.

    This was the worst ever. Did not get food after waiting for over 2 hours. Do not come here for brunch ever.

    I didn’t realize that Policy downsized so much. Not only within the building but their menu as well. This use to be my favorite Brunch spot, but I haven’t been in a while due to travel. Needless to say I have to find a new spot. It also took over 30 minutes for my waffles to come out.

    The food was ok though it was salty and in very small portions (with the exception of the Yuca Hash). Service was not great; this was a result of staffing and not of the individual server (he was great) - but he was the only server for a very busy floor.
