Cannot complain because they were open during the winter storm when everyone else was closed. We were so grateful to have warm food in a warm restaurant. I was surprised by the welcoming and friendly service as I am sure it was a difficult day for them. I wish I remember the servers name but he did a great job at turning a difficult day around. The hostess was also great at dealing with difficult guests in a polite way (even though some were rude as hell). I live around the corner and will be back.

Sunday brunch. Menu extremely limited. Had the touted eggs benedict pizza. Pass on that it was just eatable. The big menu tout was some kind of peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

The booth we were sat in had a step up and the table was at least three inches above standard making eating difficult.

Pepper was brought out in a small metal cup making it impossible to spread evenly and very fine grind on top of that.

Coffee is served in cups that get cold very fast. However they did bring fresg cups rather than refilling the cuo.

The mimosa was a strange color. I don't drink anymore so I did not sample.

Could barely hear the waitress with mask and shield. Talk about overkill.

It was OK but I won't be going back.

Was disappointed to see that the wait staff did not properly wear masks. Our waitress had her mask below her nose and a shield on top of her head that she did not use.

Had reservations and when we get there the lady said we have your seats reserved for outside mind you it’s very chilly we get inside thinking it’s busy it’s very open and then they brought us to a dirty table had to ask her to clean it seats had crumbs on it food was overpriced and unseasoned I wouldn’t recommend anyone going when there’s way better service and food quality for a reasonable price elsewhere!

One of the more disappointing dining experiences we’ve experienced post covid. Upon being seated, I discovered that my chair was broken and no remedy was ever provided. Our waitress was mostly non-existent and we felt like more of a nuisance than patrons. The food was very hit or miss, the salmon and Buffalo cauliflower were both amazing, but the steak frites was incredibly underwhelming with the overcooked steak and lackluster chimichurri. Cocktails were also underwhelming and uninteresting and made the switch to beer a no-brainer. Overall we decided this will be our one and only visit.

Great service. Food was really bland. The fried chicken had no flavor if I didn’t take a bite with its crust. I found a hair in my food. The server took care of it right away but it wasn’t the same.
I asked for a bloody mark not too spicy and it was very spicy

We had decent service but my meal came out cold (I had the chicken street tacos). The waiter replaced it and was very nice, but the food in general was not very good. I was excited to try the Brussel Sprouts but they had a really unusual seasoning that really tasted bad. My husband had a burger and said it was not great. Not worth going back.
