Super cute and we had the place to ourselves for brunch. The food was good, mimosas were good, service was good. Some of the food was maybe not the best but overall
I would say it was a good experience, not lively so if you are looking for a hot brunch spot maybe not the best place. It was good for a more chill time
No. Price is crazy for portions. No bread. Pasta was insanely spicy. Was there for an hour by myself took almost 30 minutes for the wine to come out. Apps 40 minutes. Waste of a night and a waste of 75$ for one person.
I understand it was a Prix Fixe menu & I ordered in the evening (end of service) but the turkey was super dried out. I was a bit disappointed with that. Sides were okay. Was not really "elevated". BBQ'd carrots were amazing.
Had such a great time celebrating Thanksgiving at Bear and Monarch! The food (French onion soup, short rib, and chocolate cake) and wine were wonderful, our server Gus was so attentive and kind, and the ambience was upscale cozy. Would definitely return. Thank you for making our holiday memorable!
I was only there for drinks but will definitely be back for dinner soon. The ambiance & service was absolutely delightful!
Went there for early dinner. Greeted warmly by the host, got seated at a small table quickly since I did have a reservation. However, had to ask one of the servers for a menu after waiting over 5 minutes. After that, service was average but was very impressed that our water glasses were always filled. Food was ok, limited menu and small wine list but, remember, this is a hotel restaurant. Would only come back if there were no other available restaurants.
I sent my executive team here for dinner and they said the food was good but the service was extremely slow. Disappointed in this feedback.
Our Waiter, Eli, was awesome!
Great meal. Had the NY Prime. Well prepared.
This was another excellent meal - this time in honor of my birthday, with one of my dearest friends. The food was stellar, with an amazing presentation and taste. Our waiter was Peter and he was outstanding: courteous, professional and personable. He made us feel welcome and catered to, and made a special occasion even more special with a scrumptious banana split dessert on the house! You can always depend on excellent service and a wonderful experience here, which is why I return time after time.
Great Wine and Food. Wonderful place for a business meal or a get together,
Great for a large group. Prompt service, great ambience and most of the small bites were amazing and just stunning in their presentation. The signature wagyu steak fell slightly below expectations.
Restaurant may be a spot for drinks and perhaps a nibble (I had neither.), but definitely not dinner. Service was incredibly slow, the meal overcooked, burned and terrible.
Wine list is a bit shallow and quite overpriced, but food and cocktail wise, they knock it out of the park.
Slow service, disappointing food. Chicken liver toast was very small and unimpressive, toast was old. My burger came out cold and well-done whereas I ordered medium rare. Dessert was good but it was a little too late to make up for the experience.
This place is good if you have a long time to spend for lunch. I went there for a business lunch that was a party of two so I was hoping to be in and out within an hour but that wasn’t the case.
We had a great meal. I really enjoy the chicken sandwich. The service is really attentive.
I like their breakfast too
The food was delicious - albeit pricey- and our server was very considerate, but it was noisier than I'd expected based on reviews I'd read.
Great food and service!!!
Most amazing food! Lovely lovely decor and atmosphere. Adored my experience here. Highly recommend.
It can get loud in there at lunch time. Food is great! Service could use a little polishing.
Service and food was good. It was a great place for business meetings because ambient noise was low. With the redesign it’s much louder
The food is really good here. The service is a little slow and it took a while for food to arrive but the servers are very nice and they even gave our friend a free dessert because it was her birthday.
Les plats sont bons et originaux. Le cadre est sympathique. Mais le service n’est pas à la hauteur : pressé, débarrasse la table avant que tous les convives aient terminé, apporte l’addition alors que le dessert n’est pas terminé, donne de mauvais renseignements sur les plats (épicés ou non)...
Prices are high and they actually charged for bread!
Loved this place, I got special treatment as I can’t consume gluten. Chief cooked for me gluten free.
Wonderful experience! Anton, management and the rest of the staff were lovely-friendly, professional and attentive. The food and drink presentation, taste and quality were outstanding. Definitely returning!
The food and service were great. The only thing that troubled me was the half filled cocktails. Wine was overpriced as well.
Our server, Julian, was excellent. He was respectful, attentive, and knowledgeable.
Food was very good, kitchen a little slow considering not very busy but we were there for a casual meal so did not matter. The egg Benedict was excellent and the avocado toast great.
Food has definitely changed when they changed the restaurant. Avocado toast was so hard it couldn’t be cut with butter knife. And when mentioned to server, they were brash and said “that’s why I gave you a steak knife.” Embarrassing to have had the business meeting there.
Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was spot on.
Food was fantastic and the overall service was wonderful.
Extremely slow service and it wasn’t that busy.
Incredible all around! Will definitely be back!
My only criticism is that the menu is quite limited. The food is very good, though, and the service is lovely.
It was Father’s day brunch.
The service was extremely slow and the waitress was unkind. Our food didn’t come for 30 minutes. The plates were tiny for $20 for breakfast
Terrific upgrade and tremendous for the neighborhood. Definitely my go to spot no for brining clients and business partners.
It was very good for a working day lunch, both in terms of taste and value.
