    The lettuce wrap - came out and it was a half head of lettuce and each item separately to put Inside , the meat looked like potted meat (if you know,you know) - it was a 1out of ten.. Their brunch is WAY better.

    We loved the varied menu and the friendly and fast service. The food was delicious, especially the ceviche tower. Liked that it had a casual atmosphere and was lively but not too noisy. Fun for a date night, as it was for us, but nice for families with kids too. The cocktail I had was decent but could have been better, more flavorful and a better presentation. The decor was fine but we felt like they could have had more fun with it, take it up a few notches and embrace the cultures of the food that is being served there. We would come again during warmer weather so we could try the rooftop. Overall, love the concept and food and that it attracts a wide variety of clientele.

    Food choices for all of us at the table were underwhelming. Paella the rice was dry and though the seafood was good overall it was lacking compared to other places in town. The steak chimmi the meat was tough and had gristle in it. Mexican Cevice was excellent though. Aji chicken egg rolls were bland nothing but chicken no vegetables. Server started out great but after entrees were served she disappeared and left the plates in front of the entire table after we finished.

    I went to State of Confusion for brunch at 10am on Sunday. The crowd was minimal thus the noise was low and the food was tasty. My wife and I had a good time. The only negative feedback I have was my wife's meal, the Steak and Eggs meal, the portions were small and the asparagus was quite oily and overcooked - 6.5/10. I ordered the funnel cake and fried chicken meal. It was scrumptious - 10/10

    We just had the best brunch at State of Confusion. Kaitlyn, our server, was friendly and attentive. They even brought out a complimentary brunch starter. The chicken fried chicken was delicious and so juicy. Breakfast burrito was huge. The cheese grits, yum. We also got the large mimosa jar, y’all - it’s $12! Overall a fun and delicious brunch - we will be back!

    The server Juan was wonderful. I love the location and the ambiance. The food was mediocre and overpriced to be honest. We got the potatoes nachos which were good but had too much cheese. I got the skirt steak with chimichurri and it was so salty!!! The roasted vegetable were good but had an over abundance of onion. We also got the trout and yellow rice. The trout was salty and the rice was mediocre. The drinks were decent and the server even accommodated a change for me. Overall we will NOT be back.

    Nice dining experice not what I expected for NYE it was dead. Service was fine food was fine. It's more of a weekday spot than an upscale dinner spot so that's my bad. They have burgers and fries in the menu which is fine this is not a place you need open taw reservations for.

    I had the Butcher's Butter Steak, it was the best steak I've had at a restaurant in a long time and it was cooked perfectly (medium). I also got the Honey Peach AGUAS FRESCA with a splash of champagne very tasty. Great service and atmosphere. I will definitely go again just for the steak!!!
