Absolutely awful. We waited over an hour for brunch food. They have clearly overexpanded the outdoor area without hiring enough kitchen staff. The hostess was as nasty as possible. Nobody apologized until we had asked about our food 5 or 6 times. They did not bring us even a coffee. I was embarrassed we brought guests there.
The food was amazing. Everything we ordered was really good. The service was great. The waitresses were friendly and knowledgeable. We sat inside and the place felt a bit too crowded for Corona times. But they took temperatures at the entrance and tables were spaced out, so it seems they follow regulations. We would definitely come back.
The food was very good
Some of best food in city but one of worst run operations need to get it together
Food was outstanding! Garlic Shrimp, Lamb chops, sliders! Delicious! Thank you!!
Great spot! We have ordered from here during the COVID pandemic and the food was top notch. We had the skirt steak with scallion fried rice, lobster corn bisque and the shrimp tacos. All were fantastic. We also love going by in person to sit outside for appetizers and an Aperol Spritz or Rose on a nice sunny day.
All of the food was fantastic! Wine and service also excellent. Definitely recommend!
Good food, amazing service. I really enjoyed the variety on the menu and it was executed well.
Average brunch with very slow service.
The food here is fantastic. I love duck breast, and this was definitely in the top 2 or 3 duck breasts I've ever eaten. The churros for dessert were incredible as well. My biggest problem was with the absolutely horrible service. I know that Covid makes everything a little weird for restaurants, but this wasn't something I'd say is Covid-related. Our reservation was at 8pm and we showed up on time. We were seated at 830, which is understandable because tables aren't turning over as fast as normal, so we weren't mad about that. Once at the table, our waitress didn't come for 15 minutes, so we placed our entire order to try to speed up the process. We ordered 2 cocktails, 2 appetizers, and 2 entrees. After about 15 more minutes, the cocktails came out and they were fine. After another 15 minutes, only one of the appetizers came out, so we assumed the second one would be coming soon. About 20 minutes later, my wife's entree was delivered. When we asked about the second appetizer, the waitress told us that they didn't have any more. This is almost a full hour after we ordered it. That was also the first time our waitress had come to check on us since she took the order an hour prior, so we had empty glasses for quite awhile. About 10 minutes after that, my food was finally delivered. Again, the food was incredible but the service was abysmal. I'd love to give this place a second chance, but I'm not sure the frustration is worth it.
Felt safe eating outdoors. Lots of tables. Excellent quality food. Had salmon from the brunch menu. So delicious.
We had to wait for 1.5 hours before they got us our food! The food was cold and tasted rather stale. They forgot a bunch of items in our order as well. Service is despicable, with just one server serving 30 tables. Wouldn’t recommend at all!
My friends and I went out for brunch. The food was very good and they had $30 carafes.
Awful service! Combative incompetent waiters. No management on staff. Waited 2 hours for cold food.
Absolutely delicious food.
I had a reservation and still needed to wait about 20 minutes. Then after sitting they rarely came over to check on us or take our order. Once we ordered our food it took about 30 minutes to get it. We ordered 2 brunch items.
Awful experience due to the fact that they treat reservations as a waitlist. In other words, when you show up for an 8PM reservation at 8PM, you simply get added to the waitlist along with other parties that had no reservations. We waited for over an hour until we were seated. Restaurant should be flagged and should not be allowed to accept reservations via Opentable.
We waited 40 minutes for our table despite having a reservation. The hostess had no explanation other than "I'll check with the owner again." The owner did not bother to come and speak to us or apologize, instead walking by us multiple times and ignoring us. I am quite dissappointed by how inappropriate and unprofessional the behavior of the owner was. We ended up leaving hungry.
I had such high hopes, because every time I pass by the restaurant it is always packed! We had made a reservation—once we got there (on time) it took more than 15 minutes to be seated because the host sat 4 groups before us (we noticed later he was walking around to tables unmasked with a glass of wine)... when we asked what was happening, he claimed they had reservations too; however 2 of the 4 groups seated before us came after we had arrived. The server was so sweet, but you could tell she had too many tables to handle and the food runner brought us the wrong dishes 3 times. We didn’t receive utensils or plates until our 2nd dish, and no napkins until our last. Not sure if it was a fluke, but I was so sad it didn’t work out for us here!
Excellent food with great flavor pairings. Everything was prepared perfectly! Very reasonable prices and friendly service. We will definitely be back.
Very friendly staff, speedy and attentive service. Food was outstanding in quality of ingredients, taste and portions size. Dessert is outstanding, kudos for their cheesecake.
Next table played music very loudly out of their car and staff was afraid to tell them to lower the volume
Dinner for birthday celebration and Soujourn was a wonderful present. Food was international, unique, and delicious. Service was friendly and apologetic for the wait for food to be prepared. It was an extremely busy night. Ambience was great considering it was outside sidewalk dining. Tables were very well spaced and noise level was low. I made a reservation on Open Table which is a must as wait list may exceed an hour. Will definitely return and for no other reason but to have a delicious and affordable meal with excellent service
Delicious food in a space-our outdoor area - except when it’s raining 😅
Great restaurant with interesting menu and good bat
Food was amazing! It’s understandable that they had limited staff due to covid, but overall it was excellet.
Great food and service--we had the black pasta and brussels sprouts which were delicious. The restaurant is on a fairly busy street so it was a little loud with traffic but definitely a cute spot with great food.
Great dinner here with friends. Nice spot for outdoor dining. Lots of space between tables and street is quieter than others with some nice trees. All of the group enjoyed their food. The crispy brussel sprouts and fried rice was good and I enjoyed the kale Caesar.
Black pasta and spinach ravioli on point. Good red wine and cheese paring per the waiter recommendations. Definitely will take my significant other for a date.
We reserved a table for three and they sat us down at a small table for two when there were open tables for four. When asked, they blatantly ignored me. When asked again, they gave me some sad excuse it was reserved for others. It was empty for half an hour after we sat down. We ordered a couple plates and drinks and the table we sat at was too small. They were trying to maximize their sales to make up for their losses during COVID but was doing so not in the best way. The owner also was walking around cheers-ing with his wine glass and no mask during a pandemic. While waiting for the bathroom, I saw that the cooks were also not wearing masks. In addition, our server took 25 minutes after we sat to take our drink orders. Then another 20 minutes to drop them off and didn’t take our food order then. They can back about 20 minutes after. For a restaurant that wanted to make money by shoving a party of 3 at a table of 2, they took their sweet time with us and turning over tables. I will never eat here ever again. Terrible service, no masks and the food wasn’t phenomenal for me to want to come back.
Food is always amazing! they extended their outdoor seating to line 79th street.
This restaurant was amazing. The outdoor area was very nice. The restaurant is located on a street, not avenue, so it was quiet. The service was excellent. The food was incredible. I would highly recommend the Brussel Sprouts, Croquettes and Lamb Meatballs. Also, the ricotta cheesecake it a must have.
Food was good but overpriced
The overall experience was amazing. I have been there before many times before the pandemic broke, and have always enjoyed the food. However this time the service was brought to another level with the added challenges (improvised outdoor seating, unexpected outing rain). While we had to wait for a bit in expectation that one of the few umbrella-covered tables got cleared, the restaurant team found out an unused spot outside and clear from the rain and quickly turned it into a dining spot for my boyfriend and myself. Food was delicious and so were the drinks. It is more on the pricey side but definitely worth a visit for a tasty, social distancing meal.
Great food and service. They were willing to go the extra mile to help us during covid and the rain!
Good food, good service
Very mediocre meal. Waiter made mistakes with our order so 2 of us finished our meal before the other arrived. Food was cold and both the broccoli with ponzu and the bolognese were so salty. Not a complete fail, but with many choices available, there’s no need to return here. Was disappointed because the reviews were good and the menu looked interesting.
Reviewed during COVID-19 pandemic, so we ate outside
Great dining as always. Highly recommended, especially the scallops.
Always great tapas and terrific choices!
