The staff are maskless and to make it worse the waitress - NOT wearing a mask - leaned down close to us to ask a question. Her face was within a foot away from my friend’s face. Bartender maskless. Manager maskless. Wait staff all maskless. Only the woman at the door wore one. Very uncomfortable.

The food was good overall but not fabulous like last time (brunch then). I liked the atmosphere more than the food actually.

I came for New Year’s Eve dinner. It was a disappointing experience as our food took forever to come out but shout out to the kitchen because the food was delicious.

My family and I went here for dinner (outside) for Christmas dinner. We all loved it…the food, service, and outside environment. Would recommend it to everyone. It was wonderful! We ate many small bites and enjoyed it all. Can’t wait to go back!

The food and service were both incredible. Even though we sat outside on a cold, rainy day, our waiter was attentive, warm-spirited and recommended excellent dessert options.
I highly recommend the butternut squash soup, the fries, any of the pastas, and any of the desserts!

Thank you for making my mom’s birthday so special.

This was the first time I and my friends dined at Sojourn. The menu is eclectic and we thoroughly enjoyed the different appetizers, entrees and desserts that we chose. Waitstaff was quite attentive and we appreciated the attention. Will return to try more dishes. Thank you.

I really liked it! We would go again! The service was very warm and welcoming it was just super busy so drinks took a while they may need another bartender for the brunch rush! Fun vibe, nice people, good food. Like :)

Food was hot, we’ll prepared and plentiful. Roasted Brussels Sprouts and figs with prosciutto and goat cheese really delicious! Service was wonderful on a quiet mid-week night. Enjoyed the evening.

We heard so many good stories from friends about Sojourn, we decided to visit for our anniversary. So glad we did. What a nice restaurant. The waiter was friendly and attentive, the food was delicious! (Skirt steak was tastey!) and we were really pleased with the value. We’ll be back before our next anniversary!

We recently attempted to go to Sojourn for brunch. I say attempted because after over an hour of being ignored and not getting our food we left. The staff seemed incompetent and untrained. Our waitress avoided eye contact, was not attentive and frankly didn't demonstrate any remorse for the poor service and inability to provide our food timely.

My daughter and I went here after going to the museum. Neither of us had been here before so we decided to try it. The service was good. Our server was helpful and nice. I had the black fettucine with spicy lobster and I loved it. My daughter had the gnocchi and she said it was delicious. We shared a piece of the blueberry cheesecake and we could have eaten two pieces. I would definitely go back.

Better than average brunch and nice ambiance. Bloody Mary wasn’t very interesting, but decent. I would have preferred some more fun garnishes like some other places do, but overall worth a trip on a Sunday morning or early afternoon.

It's not just about the food, nor the ambience, nor the the ease of getting a reservation, or the friendliness of the staff. Sometimes its not even about your table's position in the dining room and your seat mates and table mates and even the table adjacent.

But it's always about how well a waiter handles a complaint and how he takes responsibility and makes it right without any fuss or bother. Our waiter Robert, at Sojourn, was such an individual. We mentioned that the muffin on our eggs benedict was way too hard and couldn't be cut with a knife and he immediately whisked it off the table and within minutes they were replaced by the slightly toasted, fluffy delicious English Muffins we had expected. Hat's off to a true asset to Sojourn who made everything right and saved the day. I will definitely return.
