    When we arrived they claimed we couldn’t have our reservation honored but ended up seating us at a patio table. We had to ask to be actually served but the staff was friendly and food was okay.

    The drag brunch was a lot of fun. Bottomless mimosas were a must. However the food was very disappointing. The portions were way too small. For the price I was considering a larger serving size but only received a very small sample.

    They were apparently in transition, so a few of the menu items we were interested in were not available. The food was average, likely due to the new kitchen staff. The waiter did his best to make things right.

    This is a great place to get a drink. We did not eat here, but the staff was upfront about the kitchen being closed due to updating their menu and were understanding when we ate dinner across the street and then came back for a drink. Their bourbon collection was outstanding!

    Unreal!!!!!’n this place is horrific. I did not even eat as I arrived to restaurant and they were not open! The “guy” who was called in after the 12 P.M. hour wasn’t sure and said “he isn’t the boss but they are running behind!” Well that left a bad taste to show up and they were not open. I did not trust they had the people in place to even cook correctly or have a quality experience. None of which I was willing to risk! We left!

    The drinks were delicious and the food was good but not a lot of variety and the pricing was a bit harsh. The portions were perfect. Service was very slow considering the restaurant was not a max capacity. Also, the windows are broken our front which is very tacky. Also patron could easily see supplies and ingredients laying around in the back on the way to the bathroom.

    I think that they where under staffed & a limited menu. I have been there once before and it was great. It took 3 times to get the correct martini. We left after ordering and receiving the cheese & meat board for $48 and had them put it in a to go box. It was something I would normally pay $25 for that size. We went somewhere else to eat.

    Purchased tickets to their drag brunch this past weekend. Please be advised that the $35 ticket does not include any meal or drinks. Nope, not even a mimosa. It was a bit misleading based on the poster for the event. Had reservations for 3 people to sit inside but were initially seated outside. Asked to be moved, ended up seated at the bar, which just felt awkward conversation wise. So we requested to be seated somewhere else and they were able to accommodate us, though I didn't see why we weren't seated there to begin with. Menu for brunch was extremely limited. For a place in New Orleans, a city known for seafood, they had no seafood dishes on the menu. All three of us ended up getting French toast with an egg on the side. When the food arrived, portions were quite small. Despite asking for eggs to be cooked over-hard, all of our eggs were runny and had to be sent back to be re-done. I had to ask three people to refill my water and ended up just going to the bar with my cup to find some. Service was sub-par. Don't see myself going back. Overpriced and not worth it. Drag show was so-so.

    In all my years, this was the WORST EXPERIENCE IN DINING EVER! FIRST of all, when we arrived to the restaurant there were 3 cops and an ambulance due to an altercation between two of the employees and a customer….this should have been an indicator for us to RUN!! Then once we sat down, we had to give a credit card for them to hold our tab…little did we know they did this to “lock us in” so we would not leave. After waiting an hour, we finally ordered….THEN we were informed that our plates would come out ONE AT A TIME!!!! Literally that was true…..IT CAME OUT ONE PLATE AT A TIME!!! Everyone was so consumed regarding the fight that we went through 4 different servers. I wanted the filet and I asked a specific way for the chef to prepare it. The waitress/fighter explained that they are not allowed to speak to the chef OR make any requests! She said they are all terrified of him. PLUS one of the waitresses came from the kitchen bawling crying due to the chef going off on her for trying to change a customer’s order. Throughout this TERRIBLE night, we go to the bathroom to see one of our waitresses talking about how she beat the customer up and how the place was packed (there were only 5 tables) and the customers were so needy!!!!! This experience is actually LAUGHABLE because it was so messed up. My friends and I believe it needs to be a SNL skit due to the ridiculousness of the entire dining experience!

    We went for the drag brunch. The drag show was entertaining and the bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s kept coming. My complaint is that the brunch menu was very limited and overpriced. I think I paid $20 for a single egg, toast, and two pieces of bacon. The cheese board was really good, but the bread provided with it was so over buttered. I think this place would be good for just sampling wine and cheese.

    This place is outstanding, across the board! I had a glass of Decoy cabernet 👌🏽 We started with the steak board.. prime cut wagyu deliciousness and an order of the fries that came with this amazing fondue and house made ketchup! YUM. Next, we tried the fried asparagus and smoked salmon.. both of which had explosive, mouth-watering flavor profiles! 🤤 We loved it so much we went for round 2 of the smoked salmon and left there completely satisfied. The chef and bartender were both very helpful and kind! We will definitely be back soon! 😊
