The food was so good, and the staff was really accommodating when I was running late. I did have a small mishap, and the waiter took right care of it. Mimosas were fantastic, and overall, I had a good time. Plenty of parking nearby, and plenty of places to go after brunch with friends on Sunday!

Server didn’t really know about anything on the menu. Everything was really high priced and food wasn’t fresh. Also took a really long time to come to the table

Had a reservation for 8pm and was told there was an hour wait when I got there, what’s the point of making a reservation if you have to wait that long.

I don’t have too many bad experiences at restaurants but this was a bad one. There were nats everywhere! The food portions sucked, waiter was rude and the food was undercooked and cold when arrived to the table.

We had reservations for 1:15 PM for a hightop table. When we arrived the staff said they were no high top tables or really any tables inside available. Their only offer was to see us outside and that was not something we were hoping to here since it was 95 degrees out in full sun.

We reluctantly, we excepted the outdoor seating and the service was not very good we were not check on very often, however, the food was really good!

We sat at our table for over 15 minutes and not one person came to take a drink or food order. All we got was water when we first sat down. Several servers passed by and never said one word to us not even a “give me a second”. Was very disappointing because the first time we went we had a good experience.

1st time in and most likely last. There is not anything bad about the place, just not my style.

As for the craft cocktails, the drinks were all a little on the sweet side. I tried the PB&J Old Fashion - knowing was made w/ grape jelly I expected sweet, it was almost undrinkable. The standard Old Fashion was so over “simple syrup’ed” that it had to be sent back. This might be that this mean age of the table was too old to be here.

On the food front, the appetizers were good but small sizes. The table had cauliflower bites, tater tots, and chips/salsa.
Mains were Fish&Chios, Fish Tacos, and Bison Burgers.
All ok but not great.

If I lived close, this could be a nice local hangout.

The service by Travis was great. The food was adequate. The drinks were less then desirable. The worst part of the evening was 2 relentless fruitflies that continued to swarm our table.

Food was not well cooked or very special. Burger was suppose to be medium, was done well done. Pretzel bun was very hard. Cheese was very greasy.

Salad was a listed as a vinaigrette but was creamy.

Fish tacos were bland and not worth the cost.

From the moment I called a 5 hours before the reservation, the staff at the restaurant was accommodating and cheerful. When my party walked in we were greeted and immediately taken to our seats. Our waiter was very good and interacted with all of the table. The food was amazing and not a bad drink at the table. We all gave the service, staff, food, and restaurant 5 out of 5 stars!!! Highly recommended!!

The steak tasted old this visit. Was not happy customer. Also the cookie sandwich has decreased in size, didn’t have almost nothing of ice cream and Nutella inside, and basically not shareable anymore and also wasn’t happy about that.

The concept is good but not very well executed. I liked the composition style menu but mine was dirty and a little tired. I ordered the ahi tuna poke bowl but it was more of a salad than a bowl. it was good but not great. I also ordered the Rose but they were out. Not sure what makes this place stand out from any other restaurant other than the public school concept.
