    Took my son here for a mother son brunch date & he said it was “amazing”. The food was good. The mimosa was good too. I had the French toast & fried chicken. I am not a big French toast fan, however it was pretty good. My son loves French toast though. Would definitely come back to visit to try out some other menu items & cocktails. It was pretty noisy but the ambiance was cool. Our waiter was tentative but he didn’t introduce himself. Still tipped him though lol

    Two of us went for lunch today. It was ok but nothing to write home about. My friend had salmon with a salad and I had the beef rib sandwich. Neither of us was particularly thrilled with our meal- mine was boring. Our waitress was quite pleasant and attentive initially but then didn’t come back to check if we wanted additional drinks or after- lunch coffees either, just brought us the bill. She did however recommend a good cocktail for me after checking that it was not too sweet. The restaurant is nice enough but we were both unfamiliar with that part of town. The resto is not noisy and so easy to talk and hear each other but there wasn’t a buzz

    Pleasant place for a business lunch. Easy parking. Pricy (Burger, fries, and water ran almost $20). I had a burger and fries. Regrettably, the fries were OK but unexceptional and the server dropped a few of them off the plate onto the table/floor. I asked for a rare burger and it was served medium/well at best. 3 others dining with me reported better experience. Frankly, I was disappointed. I should have sent the burger back but I don't like doing that and it would have messed up my colleagues' lunch.

    Service was abysmal. Served wrong bottle of wine, no contact with waiter 45 minutes after taking order (with no cocktails or wine brought in the meantime) Lamb way overdone, other food cold by the time it arrived. This used to be our go to place when in the museum district for good casual and while they have missed on a few prior occasions, we went back. This is our last visit for dinner. Serve was completely clueless.

    A good variety of food, all of it delicious! Highly recommend the roasted carrot pizza (Guy Fieri approved) and chilaquiles. A good variety of drinks and coffee too! I really love the bakery at the front of the restaurant, they serve some of the best carrot cake I’ve ever tried.

    The overall experience was great. My friends and I enjoyed the atmosphere. The Sunday brunch menu wasn’t as great. There weren’t a lot of options which myself and my friends found very hard to choose from. I had the smoked salmon, but I wasn’t a fan. Would have loved if they offered the lunch menu for more options. I will probably try again on a different day.

    Pappardelle pasta and lamb rack were good. Cocktails were good too. Waiter was friendly, maybe a little too friendly, very effusive and giving a lot of details on his personal life. We were good with it though. The restaurant has an odd ambiance. I guess it doubles as a bakery of some sort, had a grab and go feel at the front. Didn’t feel like fine dining. Good overall though.

    The food was wonderful. Many good choices for brunch. The holiday drink menu was great. We all had something different and all of us were pleased. I had the avocado toast, my husband the salmon and egg. My cousin had the special and her husband had the braised pork, we live in Katy and it was work the drive.

    Made reservations to introduce my significant other to a new restaurant. The hostess sat us at the most uncomfortable table in the entire restaurant. She sat us all the way in the back next to a large party and had me facing a wall. There were clearly more seats available everywhere else but for some reason sat us back there. Food was great but not worth coming back if you’re not white because that’s the only way you’ll get a good table to actually enjoy your food.

    Where to begin... BRUNCH To start wait time for a server to even address you to give you a heads up that they will be with vou in a moment is nonexistent. They couldn't have cared less that we sat down. The server also barely came to the table and never once asked how our food was. Second the mimosas were flat and made with spoiled OJ. We had to send it back. Their excuse was sometimes the bubbles get flat when mixed. That couldn't be farther from the truth. Third the food. If I could give a negative 5 I would. This is a bakery yet my toast in avocado toast was soggy and clearly not toasted. The toast in the French toast was dry and cold. The chicken was obviously refried as it came out in less then 5 mins of being ordered. Oh the "spicy guacamole" on this avocado toast lacked salt and pepper. lord I don't even want to explain how it is far from spicy. The additional bacon that's an up charge tasted like jerky and yet was greasy. What could cause this other than possible precooking and then sending back into a fryer. I don't know but I can say I love bacon and this was terrible. In all I would never waste my time or money in this establishment. The fact that Guy Fieri had a stamp of approval of this place is something that this restaurant is clearly still trying to promote and ride its coattails. Please don't waste your time. n conclusion Service is terrible, food lacks flavor and is terrible, drinks are blah.. nothing here is to write home about. Enjoy your time and money else where.

    I’m not sure if the restaurant changed management or ownership, but quality of service and food definitely was not like before. Maybe restaurant was just having a bad day… Experience failure started with the hostess, I made a reservation and showed up early—- she sat two other tables (without reservation) before us (same number of guests). Our waitress took forever to approach us, and it wasn’t that busy.. my avocado toast was cold (really cold), and didn’t taste right. I’ve been to W&M many times, was a real fan.. until now. So disappointed.
