    Savvy bistro was a vibe for Saturday brunch. The DJ , food and drinks were good. However they didn’t have quite a few items which were listed on their menu and we kept having to call the waitress over to replenish our mimosas which ultimately cut into our allotted bottomless mimosa experience (which is timed). Overall I would recommend this establishment.

    Food was mediocre. Server could’ve been nicer. I mean we were her 1st servers of the day. You would think she worked a full shift. The restaurant just opened! She energy was as if she just didn’t want to be there. Oh the drinks were good 👍🏽

    The service needs to be more attentive and the cook needs to time the meals so that everyone at the table can eat together.

    The food was good. It would have been really tasty, maybe even fabulous, if the food was hot. The first round of drinks took so long, the entrees were served at the same time. Drinks were wrongly made. Appetizers came out after the entrees and before the correct drinks were served. No reason to go back. Manager says “we always serve the food whenever the kitchen has it ready”. When I asked him why does the menu list “Starters” and “Entrees” separately, and in that order … he responded “we ought to change that”!!

    Visited for brunch and was pleasantly impressed by the staff, food, and bottomless mimosas. Our cups literally never got a chance to get empty. I ordered catfish bites and sweet chili wings as an appetizer absolutely bomb. For entrees Chicken & waffles, and shrimp and grits. As a person that’s lactose intolerant I greatly appreciated the fact that cheese wasn’t automatically in the grits. Everything was good and when I visit Brooklyn again I’m coming back for sure . Oh wait how could I forget that the DJ showed up as we were finishing our meal and literally he provided the vibes .

    I had a birthday brunch with my family and we enjoyed ourselves!!!! The food is delicious. I ordered lobster and grits and was scraping the bowl because 1. They were good and 2. The portion needed to be a little bigger 😌 I also sampled my family’s dishes which were delicious as well. The appetizer, entree and bottomless are all worth the money. The service from booking to the day we walked through the door was warm, accommodating, and simply outstanding. And if you’re looking for a little bit of a vibe— the DJ is Sure to keep the party going! My family and I are already talking about returning. Thank you Saavyyyyy!!!!

    Savvvy Bistro we had the sweet chili and Cajun honey wings for apps, the wings were cooked we had passion fruit which was mixed perfectly and were hitting!!! The dj was amazing; he played everything from old school R&B, to Reggae and Soca, his energy was super energetic. The service was a bit slow, they seem to be short on staff, but Julien held it down, it seems as though he was serving every table inside.

    Not my first time going to Savvy. The restaurant ambience is simple the food and drinks are amazing. Never ordered a dish I didn't enjoy. The service needs work in that you cannot bring out the order for two and leave the 3rd person sitting waiting as if forgotten about. The staff is courteous and well manner. The plus is that the owners themselves would greet and check in whenever they are on the premises. Like the hands on effect and the fact that it's a black owned business. Will definitely be back as many times as I can.

    Tight congested spot with good music that may pop your ears while you're waiting 15 minutes for a host or manager to pay attention to you. After inquiring about our reservations and getting an attitude from a clueless host dropping off a hookah we waited 15 more minutes to be brushed off by him and his manager saying it was too busy to give an estimate for seating. In a finally freezing and hungry attempt to check in, another person in our party entered once more to ask again how long the wait would be.. and we were quoted "..an hour or more, we overbooked *shrugs*" DONT BOTHER making a reservation online or pulling up to get talked down to for free lol.. the Ryerson right next door however, is probably the best chicken I've ever had! And excellent speedy service!

    Didn’t even have the chance to have our dinner. Never even got our drink. Noise level is on 1000 %. Music was very very loud. Waitress could not hear nothing we were saying. So we had to repeat over and over again. Sectioning is very small. Wait time is very long. We left without service.

    We arrived with a a reservation for 2 and was asked to sit at the bar . Which we refused so they gave us a table that seats 4 . We waited 30 minutes to be acknowledged, food took long to come out on cutting boards , which aren’t practical cause my chicken and waffles kept falling off the board. The chairs are uncomfortable . The only good thing was the music. Food was not great . Drinks were strong
