    Beautiful views for pictures, quiet brunch vibe. The downside was the menu options they were poor. & If you decide to get the bottomless mimosas it is $125 for an hour, they won’t mention it.

    We ordered some sushi rolls and steak with eggs from the brunch menu. The spider roll head little fishy. We ordered medium for steak but turned out to be well done. so the waiter was nice and sent it back to kitchen. They made us a new one, temperature was right this time but the meat didn’t taste fresh (it had a very strong smell). First one was ok just overcooked. Wasn’t sure what happened yesterday, we’ve been here a few times before and we loved it so we came back again but we felt very disappointed.

    After sitting down for 20 minutes of sitting there someone finally addressed us. After telling the server we were missing a good item the waiter never came back for another 30 minutes to check on us. Overall overpriced and definitely not worth it compared to the service.

    Setup was nice outside. However, our table was placed too close under speaker so it was difficult to hear other person. Table was positioned where people had to go around you to enter where other tables were; this was disruptive.

    I walked in stood in line to the host to confirm my reservation and I was met by this huge bouncer who was very rude announcing that there were no hats allowed in the restaurant. I was shocked that he approached me: because the rule is no hat in the dining room not the restaurant. I look up to him and say. I know the etiquette of restaurants: I’ve been here before. At this point I wasn’t being nice because his approach wasn’t necessary. He then proceeded to tell me that I was going to check my hat which I didn’t. I honestly have never been so uncomfortable in my life. I frequent this restaurant and I’ve come in the door with my hat on before and I remove it on my own without being told. I sat down an I asked for the manager. He took a long time to come but I explained my experience. He was apologetic and very professional. I have to admit that the food here is amazing and It would be a horrible thing to loose business over this aggressive big guy. I’m still going to go here at least one more visit to see if I happened to come in on a bad day this guy was having. Up to now I have never met a big guy who wasn’t a gentle giant. I work in the industry and I see bouncer’s almost every day. He made the experience dark. If you have an issue with this guy. Call the manager. If he’s really a nasty person he shouldn’t be working in this popular establishment.

    I’ve been to La and ton three or four times and every time I go back the service and the food gets worse. And then you’re paying for high-quality food and you’re getting poor quality food and service. I will not be attending your place again thank you for everything. Hopefully you’ll resolve your issues and you can get more business. Thank you.

    A lot of atmosphere but the food was not up to par. They have an entire sushi menu, but the quality was poor. The fish was tasteless and it seemed that the rolls were remade -not fresh!

    The venue is beautiful and the ambiance during brunch is super chill. Smooth tunes from the live band and comfortable volume level as well. The food and drinks were good! We had margaritas and you can't go wrong with these beauties - the taste was refreshing and the added kick of Don Julio paired up nicely. Recommend this place for families, dates, or girl time during brunch. Great scene!

    They turned our Friday night into a nightmare. This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to. We had a reservation of 4 people and 2 of our friends were running late as a fire alarm got off in their house. We requested the front staff to let us seat as we were hungry and I have a health condition but they refused to let us seat till all 4 of us were here. The food was average and it took 1 hr to get the food after ordering. I wouldn’t come back to this place even if it was free.

    I won't be returning to this establishment. It's one big vacuum to clean out your wallet. They charged $10 for valet parking plus tip. They automatically charge 18% tip on the bill. Then the waitress reminds you that any additional tip I would like to include would go to her directly to her and that cash is preferable. They also have attendants in the restroom that squirts the soap into your hands and of course you have to tip those guys because they are standing in the bathroom for hours. They play the music so loud that people have to shout to be heard by the other people at their table. It was a total disappointment. I'll stick with the restaurants in Montclair and Ridgewood.

    When arriving I had to pay $25 (cash only) for the valet. They charge you 18% included gratuity, that being said, the service was so-so, the staff seemed tired and unhappy. The food was pricey but some dishes were really good. Not my best restaurant experience. I don’t think I’m returning.

    Food was good, but not great. NY strip was super fatty, and everything like the sides were ala carte, which is fine, but portions were very small fornthe price. Gratuity of 18% was also automatic, but service was not up to that value. We had a birthday at our table, and they didn't do anything except let us choose a dessert, they charged us, brought it over and dropped off - no singing by the staff or nothing special at all for a birthday. Server explained, it was a policy not to do anything. With a few drinks, expect your tab to be over $500 for a group of 4 - for that much money, if a great meal is sought after, you can find better places for the price. Energy of the restaurant is vibrant and a scene - go for that, not the food.

    The octopus wasn’t cooked enough. They forgot to bring out our Lobster Dumplings. The Branzino was overcooked. We were sitting outside. They turned on the space heaters. It was so hot, we were burning up. We asked them to lower the heat. They refused. Had to move to another table! All in all, not a great experience.
