Our server had a terrible attitude from the start. His questions and his answers were dripping with disdain. He paid scant attention to us and then left in the middle of the meal without a word. We only knew because we saw him walk out the door with coat & bag. Had we not seen him leave, we would have been stranded for much longer waiting for him to appear. As it was, we asked the bartender to help and he graciously obliged.

On our way out, we let the Floor Manger know we thought it was odd that our server left without saying anything or letting us know who would be attending to us. He seemed flummoxed and offered a lack luster apology.

The shame of it all is that the food was good (B+/A-) and we would be raving about the experience had the service been minimally acceptable.

Wish i could have loved it because it is beautiful. Food was really only fair and the kitchen was so slow it was pathetic. Everyone kept apologizing and it wasn’t that crowded. Pretty disappointing actually

The food is not as good as it once was. And many of the ingredients are ore mixed so if you can’t eat one ingredient it very much limits your choices.
Also having a bar but a limited bar menu for lunch makes no sense to me.

I've frequented this restaurant about 3-4 times last year, and I always enjoy the brunch menu along with bottomless mimosa's so naturally, I thought it would be a good experience to share this place with friends for my birthday. The food and drinks were great as usual however, I would have preferred to have a different waitress. I'm not sure if she may have been overwhelmed by the other large group she was serving, but when she came back to our table she seemed flustered. Another guest of my party asked to join in for the bottomless mimosa but we were quickly told "No" because this person had not purchased an entree. We then requested bottomless mimosa for another guest who had purchased an entree and our waitress kept insisting that if she brought out the carafe, the person with the entree had to drink it. Almost as if she was implying that we were trying to pull the wool over her eyes. After acknowledging that we understood she then involved a manager who reiterated what she had already mentioned. It became even more uncomfortable after this whole situation when I inquired about when the bottomless drinks were over, as she came back to the table twice and passive-aggressively answered, "Let me check" as if she was unfamiliar with the restaurant policy. It was definitely a shock to me as this restaurant usually has remarkable service, and with almost an entire table ordering multiple entrees and bottomless drinks, I would have expected a bit more decorum considering the amount of money we were spending. Overall, I enjoyed celebrating my birthday but I would have preferred to have Jessica as my server, as she has served me twice in the past and her service is always outstanding.

The food quality has diminished in the past year. It was our go-to spot, but today just confirmed that the food just isn't as good as it used to be. Disappointed.

The crispy chicken parm was delicious, and so were the Kobe meatballs. In fact, everything we had was great, and we especially enjoyed our server Amy.
