It is a very lit spot great for a date night food was ok not to bad but I have had better. I had the chicken and waffles. Bellini’s were great and I’m not a drinker so that says a lot.
All good, chicken and waffles a bit disappointing but the steak and eggs were amazing!
Rlly bad food… j overpriced as hell. Service took forever to come over. Would not come back, especially bc we almost didn’t get in bc we were underage and had to argue w the manager to get in bc there was no posting that said it was 21+ after 8:30. Phone was off the hook when we tried to move up our reservation - tried calling 9 times. Don’t come here.
Came for my bday and I had a great time the music and vibe was great just which we were able to stay longer but definitely plan to go back once are back to normal.
Great time as always! The staff was very accommodating for our party and made our special day that much more memorable! Awesome job!
I love this place. Amazing food and ambiance.
Waffles and Chicken was amazing. Service was great, music was R/B greats from the past. Exactly what we were looking for. Super fun. Can’t wait to come back.
We have to change our reservation 3x as we were stuck in traffic due to an accident and the hostesses were truly so incredibly nice!! The entire experience awesome music ofcourse was lit!! Def a birthday celebration restaurant we had so much fun.
The host Emmy was awesome. The food and drinks were delicious. Most importantly, the music as always, was on point. I always enjoy myself when I come to Son’s of Essex.
I love it there not my first time, but it was the first time for others that were in party and I wanted them to experience it. Even though they didn’t get the full experience ( pre COVID ) they enjoyed themselves very much
Terrible experience, rude manager as well!!!
The vibe was great, however the food was horrible. I asked for a medium-well steak and it was burned to a crisp. My guest ordered chicken and waffles and his waffles were over cooked and hard. I wouldn’t return as the food was not worth the price.
We were hurried through brunch at every turn - was 5 minutes late for booking and was berated about being late. Didn’t get our full 90 minutes - staff were rude about saying time was up. So loud and couldn’t hear a thing. Would NOT go back.
All staff members were amazing! To the security guard, the manager Ema, and my waiter (forgot the gentleman's name). I had a great birthday experience with a few friends!
They made my husband birthday very special
This location ALWAYS DELIVER GREAT FOOD in a SUPER CHILL ENVIRONMENT! The wings, mac n cheese, salmon, roasted chicken, drinks EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING!
The ambiance is so fun and lively and beautiful
The staff is attentive
The food was great!
Love, love, love, this spot!!! Highly recommend if you're a 90's hip hop head! Super dope!
The place is great if looking for a party atmosphere for brunch. The food is absolutely delicious and dj selection was on point. My only complaint was that the music was TOO loud; otherwise, good place
Love Sons! Great food, music and ambiance! No complaints here.
Even though with Covid restrictions and rules, everything was great.
Really cool atmosphere, and great music. The bottomless brunch is quite pricey, but worth it. I got the steak and eggs and it was absolutely delicious.
Love this restaurant. The vibe is fun, awesome DJ, delicious food.
I ordered French toast and chicken instead of the chicken and waffles but the chicken had no flavor and we we didn’t find out until the bill came that the drink we ordered was not bottomless despite the set up of the menu.
The waitress was in a bad mood. She did even say hi to us
Great DJ and drinks! The food and service was good, too.
Was just the atmosphere I was looking for for my birthday brunch, had a lot of fun with my friends eating, drinking and dancing. You only have 2 hours for the table and it did take a little while for mine to get our menus and food, but we ended up staying for almost 3 hours, if not more, so it made up for the lost time. The food is average, nothing special, so you go more for the atmosphere rather than the food. Overall had a really great time!
I’d recommend this place over & over again! From the moment I walked in, the music was bomb. Food was good. Good vibes all around. Loved the diverse crowd
Best brunch in NYC! DJ was playing the best hip hop & R&B. The crowd was beautiful and vibrant. Great food and excellent service.
Loved this place! I wish I lived in New York so I could go every week. We went here for brunch and had a great time. The vibe is cool and the dj was great! It was like a big party with amazing food and drinks. I will def go here everytime I'm in nyc.
The music and vibe were perfect! I can’t wait to come back!
Will definitely recomend this to friends who likes rnb song and would not mind loud music, the music is really cool , food is good and service is great.
Great atmosphere... nice hip hop music .. great customer service.. staff catered to our needs and wAnts
Came for Brunch on a Sunday. Food was decent, mimosas were as expected, and the playlist was awesome. The overall experience was good, and I would recommend this restaurant to friends. I felt like it was a slow morning overall though. Everything just felt average when my expectations were high. I look forward to coming back and giving the lunch and dinner menus a try
Very friendly staff and food was amazing.
I definitely recommend the Birthday parade! If you are a lot of people or there are bigger people in your party ask for a table in advance not a booth. The parking was easy to find on the street and one block over was municipal parking. They were accommodating if you call and you know your beyond the 20 mins grace period they figure it out. Beware kitchen closes at 10pm although they are open significantly later; so don’t book reservation after 8:45pm or arrive later than 9pm. The food was good although not many options so look before you go because they ran out of the Salmon; so many of us had to go with our second choice. The macaroni and cheese is the best dish on the menu, they have 5 different versions we had plain. So good one of my guests ordered one to go.
Great food and ambience. Hip-hop music was perfect. No complaints at all. Love this place.
I would definitely recommend Sons Of Essex. The food and drinks were excellent. Music was great too bad we left when DJ arrived. But overall no complaints.
I have been here for happy hour & Sunday Brunch. Great music and food. Must try the truffle Mac n cheese !!!
