I took my nephew and his son to brunch. We had so much fun, and we loved our food.

We had great service from Jake - as usual. However when we arrived the main dining area was turned over to some kids thing...maybe soccer or football. I realize that I may have to suffer someone else’s loin-fruit for brunch but I don’t expect to put up with the same in the evening. Perhaps the new management embrace the change - and that’s fine - but we won’t be back if this is some new kid-friendly BS.

Our first time to Prepkitchen but won't be our last. The food and drinks were excellent! We had a great server and she offered wonderful recommendations! We tried a number of their appetizers along with different entries. Usually at a restaurant you haven't been to, you find something you may not like but not at Prepkitchen! Everything was topnotch!

In the heart of Little Italy among many excellent restaurant options, a nice location on the second floor giving a calmer sense than the bustling main floor options. Parking is awful, so best to walk. Service was great. Small, but good menu. The burger was very good, pork chop was “okay” and made better by excellent sweet potato gratin. Crude nicely presented and very tasty. Overall, a good experience, but no strong recos from our group of 5.

Food was very good. I would come back and try the other items on the menu. I enjoyed their seared tuna entree and the carrot 🍰 was surprisingly very good. The icing on the cake was supposed the and not overwhelming. The seared ahi was cooked to perfection and the blood oranges added to the flavor.

Service was good, but could have been better. The restaurant was not crowded when I went and we were seated at a corner table next to the kitchen. Our server didn't check on us to see if we wanted dessert. Another server cleared our plates. However, our original server's recommendations for food and dessert were in point.

I have enjoyed this place for lunch but I absolutely loved it for dinner. We missed the Happy Hour specials which would've been great because the drinks were a bit pricey and small.

Disappointed, wanted to have a fun evening for my teen daughters birthday. We were crammed into a corner table. Menu is very sparse. Service was good but kitchen was slow.
I would only recommend if on a lazy date with someone that has low expectations

My friend and I met up for dinner. We shared the chicken piri piri and the sweet potato and kale lasagna. The chicken was moist, full of flavor, and came with these crispy potatoes. The lasagna was comfort food without being too heavy. The service was very good.

Maybe it's a bad sign when the staff starts to recognize you and knows that you're about to order fried chicken? New fall cocktails are amazing too. Comfort blanket, all day long...

Bummed that you couldn't look out the window and people watch. The Charcuterie board was amazing, but wish the olives were seedless. There wasn't enough veggies on the menu or varieties of non-meat, non-spicy, non starch. The cocktails were awesome! The dessert was very yummy.

I would come here again for cocktails and drinks and go somewhere else for dinner.

Loved the servers and hostess!
