A neighborhood favorite.
We had several brunch items and each was superb. The service was likewise very good. I will be back!
The food was sooo good! And so was my Salty Dog. I will return to this quaint café with delicious food and friendly service!
Food was just ok. Server was terrible. Very disappointing experience.
I am so sorry you had this experience. I am the owner and I was working in the dining room yesterday and I wish I had been able to address your issues in real time. As the other reviews indicate - this is not our norm and so it is always helpful to know specific problems so we can do better next time. Regardless, I am disappointed we did not deliver for you. Thank you again for taking time out to share feedback.
The food was fairly good but very expensive. A fairly small salad with a couple of small balls of mozzarella was $19. A cup of brewed coffee was $5. The bill for 3 people for a very simple lunch was over $150 before tip!
Thanks much for taking time to give feedback. I will make sure to talk to the Chef to assure that all of the salads have a lot of ingredients. The only table we had for 3 on the day you dined with a bill near $150 included multiple premium mixed drinks, a fresh fish entree, dessert, an entree salad & soup, & bread. We make everything from scratch with quality ingredients. That and our Gold Coast location drive our pricing. Thanks again, we appreciate your thoughts, as strive to deliver value.
We ate outside. It was a beautiful day. The food and service was great!
Can’t tell if I indicated that the noise level was just fine.
We always enjoy our lunch at Space 519, but Saturday it surpassed all high expectations. The food was exceptional and savored the wine we ordered. Owners were very accommodating to let us eat inside, even though our reservation was for outside. Cant wait to go back!
Outstanding food and excellent service. Highly recommend.
The restaurant is located inside a boutique that sells beautiful upscale clothing, home decor, and other products. The food is delicious and very fresh! Shopping and eating a winning combination!!
Good food for lunch — as always.
Busy, so noisier than our prior experiences there, but still very worthwhile.
First time there and loved it. Great food and nice selection variety
We had a great time. Thank you for making my sister's birthday celebration a really delicious treat.
Very pleasant setting. Great food and service. What could be better.
Fantastic! Can’t wait to return!
Really cute place! Had no idea it was there but will definitely be back!!
Predictably wonderful. Tortilla soup was just the right amount of spicey! Chicken avocado club - perfection. Service, as always, was impeccable. Will definitely return again and again. Thank you!!
The Lunchroom is a true neighborhood gem with wonderful food, excellent service & great atmosphere. But wait, there’s more - the ultimate in boutique shopping after your meal !!!
Delightful lunch outside. Waiter was very helpful.
I took friends, visiting from the Bay Area, to lunch and they loved it. The food was delicious: shrimp tartine open faced sandwich with watermelon salad and the baja tacos.
Fabulous food !!
Fabulous salads, well seasoned, generous portions in a light, airy setting.
I’m not impressed with their food actually didn’t like it at all. Had stomach pain right after brunch. Sorry but never again!
Hi Monia: I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience.

If you do decide to join us again, please let us know so your next experience is a positive one. Sincerely, Anthony (FOH Manager)
Great location with delicious food and friendly service.
Love the menu and drinks!! Super healtht
This is our favorite go-to Sunday brunch spot. This visit our order was either never placed, or taken to another table. About one hour in we inquired and our server was very apologetic and nice. She said that they would comp our meal, which we very much appreciated. When the meal was done, we were presented with a bill - with only our coffees comped! The crazy long wait was poor, but we did not necessarily expect for our meal to be picked up. But once it was offered it felt extra lousy to see the price of our cups of coffee removed from an otherwise complete bill. Could have been handled better.
Hello I am so sorry you had this experience. This server is new and clearly was having a bad day in midst of the Father's Day rush. Your entire meal should have been comped as promised. Because this review was anonymous we have no way of fixing this because we have no idea which table was yours. I wish you would have asked for a manager so we could have fixed this for you immediately. We so appreciate your long term patronage and hope you will give us another shot. Very best - Lance (owner)
Best brunch ever! My friend couldn’t stop talking about it. I’m so glad I was told to go here.
Great food and service! Enjoyed eating outside and being able to make an outside reservation. There were so many items on the menu I wanted to try. I’ll definitely be back!
Brought two out of town guests—perfect!!
Everything was great except my reservation didn’t go through into their system even though I received the opentable confirmation.
It seemed as if we were at the “forgotten” table in the place. Everything took an extremely long time. Great food though.
Love the staff and service - and the food of course :)
Scale + personal attention added to the delight of the luncheon
On a lovely afternoon, we got a table on the Patio, and our lunch was superb from start to finish. Great food, great service. Love this place!
Food is wonderful.
Nice outdoor patio. Plan for the weather if it's hot as there are only 3 umbrellas to share.
We had outdoor seating for 4, there were 7-8 tables but each table had to fight over 3 umbrellas for shade (under 88F degree weather). Server was not very attentive (gave us a check without asking if desserts/coffee are needed), favoritism of moving the umbrella away from us was granted to apparently regular customers without our permission. Two of us ordered fish tacos, the tortillas was really hard and dry. Fortunately the Greek flatbread and espresso were good. The quality of food definitely was not the same as as before the pandemic.
We're regular diners st 519 and always enjoy ourselves. It’s a great addition to the neighborhood.
patio dining is delightful! kale salad is delicious
