    I've been to this restaurant a few times, only for brunch, within the past year I've noticed some changes. My most recent visit, the funnel cake a waffles look and taste much better, not a fan of the new thin wrap for the breakfast egg rolls. Nor was I impressed by the steak and eggs, the steak was seasoned well, yet the portion was too small. It sat on a small bed of potatoes, and unseasoned eggs. To be honest I had a better size and tasting steak from Outback. Will I return, maybe for the funnel cake. Mimosa flight was great, server was mediocre. She spend more time flirt with other customers, and I didn't think she earn the automatic gratuity. It is what it is. I will be a while until I return.

    Always excellent food and atmosphere. The only issue is they only had one server and she worked diligently but she definitely could have used some help. She was excellent, just a bit overwhelmed.

    My party and I, a group of 7, came from out of town for brunch. I called a month before to make the reservation and was told that I couldn’t make a reservation for that size. I was told to have two reservations splitting up the group and put in the comments that we want the two tables to sit by each other. Once we arrived, we were told by 2 staff members that we were unable to sit by each other even though the restaurant wasn’t full. We explained what we were told to do and they told us we couldn’t sit together because a waiter or waitress can’t have a party that size by themself. The only alternative was for all of us to sit at the bar be served by 1 waitress/bartender, which goes against the policy we were just told. Twenty minutes later, a party of 7 people were seated at 2 tables next to each other being taken care of by 1 waiter. It’s unfair how we were treated, especially since we called a month in advance and we’re told how to set up the reservation. If we could’ve gone to another restaurant, we would have. The food and drinks were good. The bartender, Micah, was wonderful and made sure to go the extra mile due to the original mishap. The establishment needs to maintain consistency in their policies and if an exception is made for one, it should be made for all.

    Our service was very friendly but very slow. It, however, wasn’t like our waitress was standing around doing nothing. She was quite busy! My only explanation is perhaps she was dealing with a slow or unorganized kitchen. It took a long time for our food to arrive. Fortunately, the ambiance was lively and the space was spotless. My family and I enjoyed being there and enjoyed our conversation. The crab and artichoke dip was delicious. The collard greens were also delicious. The truffle fries were addicting. I was disappointed with my steak with brown butter sauce. It had no flavor. My family and I did not order dessert because we feared it would take too long. The food presentation was nice.

    I reserved a table for 4 people to celebrate Father’s Day for my husband and kids. First, when I called to confirm, the lady who answered was unfriendly and hanged up abruptly. When we got there, same impolite and unwelcoming attitude from the host. The person who served us water was mute. Our waitress, Nova was good, although she only came once to ask if I wanted another cocktail and then neglected us for the rest of the evening. After handing our check to us, she asked us if we’d come back. We were kind of enough to smile and said “ok”, but no, we would not return and will not recommend to anyone this place. Perhaps we would’ve offered her more feedback, but we felt as though she was in a rush and couldn’t care less for our input. We went to Firebirds with my father in law for lunch, and sad to say, but service and food there was more impressive.

    I brought out of town friends and my mom here for dinner and it is always a hit.. Their food is so good and for some of my friends who are watching what they eat, they had some lighter options and not so carb heavy stuff. Their truffle fries are so good and their steak is always cooked tender and perfect. Drinks were alright but the food was spot on. They all loved it. The service was good and the location is nice because parking is a breeze, unlike most other places in southend.

    Extremely dissatisfying treatment by the hostess and maybe manager. I’m not sure if the hostess was supposed to communicate it better. However, they open at 5pm and our party of four arrived at 5:20pm on a Friday. We look around and we are the only soon to be customers there. No exaggeration. We ask her for a table of four and she says they can’t take “walk ins” after asking the manager. That’s basically all she said. She didn’t say sorry, she didn’t recommend us making our reservation, she didn’t try to make sure we stayed. Simply made that statement and expected us to leave. Because we had already arrived I was adamant about eating here. I had to ask several questions to be guided to open table to make a reservation as we stood in front of them because they “couldn't” or wouldn’t make us one. As we stand in front of them we make a reservation for 5:30pm and we get to be the first ones sat and the restaurant stayed pretty empty until towards the end of our meal when we waited quite awhile before our waitress came to take our dessert orders and then to give us our check. Overall our waitress was probably their only saving grace. A lot of places do quite a bit better that’s why I don’t recommend this place to others. There’s other places with better food and getting through the doors is always smoother. The food wasn’t terrible. The salad was great, the fries were amazing, but the entrees were a little of a let down. The steak wasn’t a great cut and was supposed to be drowned in sauce otherwise I assume they would’ve added more seasoning to it I’m sure.
