The target market is “girls brunch” and nothing else. You should go here to drink and socialize with your girlfriends. Any other occasion or outing is better served somewhere else.

Their letter rating was not posted. At the time we went they were rated B. The bathroom was beyond filthy. The door was held closed with (literally) a rubber band. The steak ordered medium came out raw. It was also super loud. Would not return.

The brunch was delicious. The service was just right. The noise level - even for brunch and not packed with patrons - was super loud. Perhaps some sound/noise solutions can be introduced to lower the volume.

Our service overall was wonderful. Our waitress was attentive, and did a great job handling our large group!

I ordered the breakfast quinoa bowl, which was a tad small, but delicious.

My only criticisms is that the brunch was overpriced. I am no cheapskate when it comes to brunch, but you could go somewhere else just as good for bottomless food and booze, for the same price, with far more choices.

Really nice vibe to the place. Cocktails were great, and music was stellar.
We had a few blips with the food, but the manager came over, explained how they rotate their menu seasonally, and that it was the first night with the new menu. They were eager to hear the bad as well as the good, and corrected the food and resent it to us. They offered us compensation for their mistakes and in the end we still had a very enjoyable evening out at Daisy. I will give it a second chance for sure.

Service was exceptional. Food was okay-one persons meal (a SALAD) didn’t come with others- guest waited 10 min for her meal. Music was way too loud. We asked server if it could be lowered and a few minutes later the volume went up!

Puzzled why this restaurant gets such high ratings on OT. Went for brunch - very disappointing. Food wasn’t very good - a variety of egg dishes and waffles. Very loud, difficult to have a conversation at a table for 4. Won’t be going back.

The ambience of The Daisy is relaxed and is more in the style of a bistro or a cafe rather than a fine dining establishment. The servers are extremely polite and responsive. It is a neighborhood gem.

The Daisy has consistently good food. Every time I have dined there the quality of the food was the talk of the table considering the price points, which are quite reasonable. Salmon is an easy dish to prepare in a very unexciting way, but the salmon dish on their dinner menu is prepared in a well thought out, well composed way that marries all the flavors on the plate rather than presenting the salmon as one part of a separate three part meal of a protein, a carbohydrate, and a vegetable.

It would be nice if their menu selections for dinner were more in number. The chef might want to consider that, for diners who do not eat meat, another fish dish or perhaps a vegan dish could be added.

Go for a drink but skip the awful food. They destroyed the salmon (twice) and the steak was 90% fat and 10% salt. The staff was apologetic, though, as if they'd been through this far too many times.

This was my third time back at The Daisy for brunch, and it was a great experience as it was the times before. I requested the front window table when making my reservation and was delighted that the staff fulfilled my request! Brunch here is always a relaxed affair, which makes it great for catching up with friends. The noise level is low and the staff are friendly and don't rush you out the door. The only downside is that the iced coffee is canned, which seems odd when a place serves brunch. I haven't had dinner or alcoholic drinks here yet, so I can't comment on that. But overall, I'm fond of this place and will definitely be back.

Horrible hidden step at from is extremely dangerous. Management - fix it immediately. I have seen people fall to the floor 3x. You are very irresponsible not to fix that dangerous step.
