The fish tacos were good, but the pork chop was extremely dry, tough and overcooked, and the mashed potatoes and spinach had very little flavor. The service was very good, and the upstairs was very peaceful, with a nice view from the window.

My friend and I had 4:30pm reservations on a Saturday and arrived thirty minutes before our actual reservation. The friendly staff was very accommodating and seated us immediately. It appeared that we had arrived when the weekend brunch was ending and that they were starting the dinner menu which was fine for us. I was worried that we would be served “brunch leftovers” but I was very wrong. We ordered an appetizer of fried green tomatoes which was delivered to our table piping hot and deliciously crispy. We also ordered several rounds of cocktails as well as the chicken and waffles as the entree. The chicken was also fried to perfection and the waffles were light and airy. The portions was beyond generous (no complaints here...the leftovers were a great snack). Highly recommended this restaurant, it truly lives up to it’s name of Southern Hospitality!

Our family went here for Easter brunch and it was amazing! Lots of new twists on old favorites, eclectic atmosphere that was young and hip but my not so cool almost 40ness was all ok still. We had shrimp and grits, French toast, Florentine Benedict and a lamb burger with goat cheese and a fried green tomato.....all executed perfectly. Their traditional Bloody Mary was just enough spicey garnished with lime, a dill pickle and green olive. Service was on point, prompt and each stage of our meal was brought out in a timely manner. This will be one of our DC favorites!

Had a great time here. Read all the reviews and finally decided on having my mini birthday brunch here. Had a reservation so that went smoothly. Service was great and the food was so yummy. I had the crab cakes with/tater totes and boy was it good (I'm not even a big meat eater but I found myself looking for more). The space is kind've tight so if you're a larger party(more than 4), definitely make a reservation and see if you can get tables combined.

In the heart of Adams Morgan (i.e. take an Uber or metro to avoid traffic and parking challenges) the restaurant provides huge portions for brunch. Enjoyed the bottomless mimosas, although you'll only need 1 carafe shared with a friend if you're a lightweight like me. Our server, Lena, was phenomenal. So accommodating and made sure we were covered with our food, drink, and comfort needs. My chicken sandwich was awesome, substituted with my salad (trying to make good decisions with my food...no fries please). Would I go back, sure. More so for the ambiance and great staff.

My issue was being stuck at a table in the corner where I couldn’t even move my chair over because beside me was a brick walls and behind me was a brick fire place. If I had moved the table to other side of me I would’ve hit another guest at another table. Although my food was a little good when I got it, it was very good.

Great place to get together with friends. The menu is fun to choose from.. you're either going to go in one of two directions: ball out and have the chicken and waffles or still have a delicious meal and order one of their salads. $16 bottomless mimosas makes it fun for a weekend brunch! They played a lot of R&B sing-alongs which puts anyone in a good mood.

This was my first time here! If you want a noisy social scene the bar downstairs is perfect! If you want a quiter bar and relaxed scene, walk up the stairs! A perfect place to have conversation, and just enjoy hanging out with a friend or two! Victoria the bartender is a thoughtful, pleasant and knowledgeable bartender! We ordered the lambchop appitizer! Delicious, would have liked 3 pieces, but that’s ok. Then we ordered the flank steak salad, the meat was tender and delicious! My friend and i shared, it was plenty of food! To top it off we had the apple pie and ice cream! Yummy. They also, have a nice wine selection! Will definitely go back soon!

The food was tasty and the serving sizes were plentiful! However one food order was incorrect so it had to be sent back and we had to continuously ask our server to refill our bottomless mimosa glasses. Our server also tried to rush us out by giving us the check after we finished eating (about an hour in) but bottomless mimosas lasted for 2 hours. We had to hide the check so she would stop asking for it. I understand you need to flip tables but if customers purchased bottomless mimosas with a 2 hour limit dont rush them.

So let me start by saying that the food was amazing! However the wait staff acted like I was inconveniencing them, odd for a restaurant with hospitality in the name of it. We were sat and left, then back to ask for drinks or anything to get started. We placed the small plate order and received the small plate before the server asked for our main entree. I sat there without water for quite a while and anytime she did manage to come over she had an attitude. I was a server for many years through college and would have been embarrassed for myself with that type of attitude. It would have been slightly more acceptable with a crowd but we were one of a few people in there. I spend a lot of time on business within my company, along with several coworkers and I would hesitate to recommend it just based on the service, sad since the food was so good. But I don’t enjoy sitting in a place where I felt like I was imposing on their evening.

I expected a better seasoned meal. Our food wasn't bad but maybe my expectations were just too high. Our crab cake poached egg brunch was just OK. Our waitress seemed a bit hungover as she continued to drink a bloody mary while serving our table. Nice enough, but forgot things and never checked to refill our water, etc. Clearly her body was there but her mind was not.

This restaurant claims that brunch is over at 4:00pm, but i got there at 3:30 and they would not serve me from the brunch menu nor would they even serve me and my guest mimosas. If i would have known i wouldn’t have came to eat there. The service was also lackluster and there weren’t many people there. Once food wa served our waitress didn’t even come to check on us. I was very disappointed.

From getting a confirmation phone call for our reservation the night before which I thought was really nice, to being accommodated with a last minute time change, to the actual food, it was all spectacular and I would absolutely return!

I ordered the fried chicken Benedict. While the biscuit was delicious, the chicken was very rubbery. I had a few bites of the chicken before I decided to take it off the biscuit completely. I felt quite sick a few hours later...I probably would not go back.
