    Went here for a friends birthday and it was terrific! They sat us right away, we’re very timely on all drinks, food, and brought out a birthday dessert without us even asking! Loved it.

    The patio dining is very pleasant (but like every place in Liberty Station you have to get accustomed to the planes flying overhead). The Bloody Mary was nice and spicy but the bacon was not crisp and was just folded in half and laid on top of the drink. I was very disappointed with the schnitzel, which was not pounded thin as it should have been - it was more like a big pork chop without a bone and it was dry. The schnitzel did not have much flavor, nor did the sausage gravy sparingly spooned over the top. My friend enjoyed her avocado toast but said the bread was difficult to cut. Not sure I would put The Presley at the top of my list for a second visit.

    We weren’t sure what to expect since we were just in town for our daughter’s graduation but I must say it was quite lovely and although we had to make 2 separate reservations because our party size was large they were able to seat us next to each other. Would definitely recommend and revisit.

    Being located in Liberty Station is a plus. Mostly outdoor seating at the restaurant is nice & there's usually enough shade from the sun. It's pet friendly and has an up-beat atmosphere. The service is good and the food is good for the price.

    Our group of 4 were seated on the outdoor patio. All of our dishes (Steak and Eggs Benedict, Bacon and Shrimp Tacos, Orange Ricotta Pancakes) were delicious. The kitchen was a bit slow, but it was a Sunday morning. The most disappointing thing about the experience was the loud pop music playing. Why do restaurants do that? When one goes out with friends, it's nice to be able to talk without all that background noise. The planes flying overhead are enough noise!

    I kind of liked The Presley. I just observed a few things. Some will call it nitpicking, but so be it. We were having breakfast/brunch at 10 am and coffee or other breakfast beverages were on the menu. Instead the backside of the menu was full of alcohol that The Presley seemed to be pushing hard. And upon ordering coffee there weren’t any sugar/sweetener that the waitstaff could bring out in a container. I just took it to mean coffee wasn’t a priority, pushing alcohol was. The food was tasty but a person in my party had the schnitzel and eggs but the plate had a pool of grease. As if the schnitzel was immediately put on the plate without even a shake to try and remove the excess oil.

    My first visit to The Presley was so pleasant that I’m looking forward to going again. We were a family group of 8. Wonderful menu selections, great service and the food was delicious. I had the seafood sliders, very yummy. Others enjoyed eggs and other brunch items. The patio is a lovely space. Yes, conversations had to be paused as the planes from the nearby airport soared above us, but it did not detract from the terrific time we enjoyed.

    The food was good, and reasonably priced. Nice menu, not extensive, but enough options for everyone to find something good. Generous servings. I had the shrimp lettuce wraps, technically on the appetizer menu, and it was plenty for me (I'm not a dainty eater). Decent wine options. Our server was attentive without being pushy, she was quite pleasant.

    I normally attend happy hour events at The Preseley and is one of those “go-to” spots. I took my wife here for brunch for the first time and The Presley did not disappoint. Food was pretty good and I had the schnitzel and eggs while my wife had the mascarpone stuffed french toast. Both were delicious. I recommend getting the champagne special.

    Food way okay. I was really hoping to give this place a chance. When we asked about dessert and coffee options we were suggested to instead get coffee at moniker and bring it over because it was better. I like moniker, but I was hoping the restaurant had better options. Also the s’mores option was ok. I hope we can give this another go, but might not be for a while.
