Food was excellent. Vibe was great.
Everything was outstanding - the food, the atmosphere, the wine, the service. One of the best restaurants in New York.
Beautiful, cozy but elegant! The food is outstanding! And the people… 💝💝💝💝
Great experience, great service and great food!
Loved this spot sooo much! Going to be a regular here!
Very nice staff - wonderful food - great dry martini
Everything was fantastic! Best brunch we’ve had in the city so far. Great service, tasty food. Cocktails were surprising & delicious. Highly recommend!
Absolutely loved everything! I definitely will be back again.
What a wonderful brunch had by all. Totally loved this place especially the cocktails. Will definitely go back very soon!!
Ny vacation brunch
Fantastic service and amazing drinks! Will definitely go back….
The cocktails were absolutely delicious and all of the food we had was great. The service was amazing! Super friendly and attentive staff.
Such an amazing experience and the cutest drinks !!! Highly recommend
The restaurant put a 1.5 hour time limit and our party felt that we were being watched and rushed from the moment we got there. I would have liked to be able to enjoy each other’s company without feeling like we were a burden. I understand the restaurant wants more covers but it felt pushy.
Food, drinks, service all amazing! Love this special little spot.
The drinks were very bland (even plain lemonade)and the bartender had an attitude when we sent them back. The menu had very limited options. However the burger was the best part of the brunch and made up for the entire experience. It’s a really small place which caused it to be very hot inside. The pictures definitely make the place more intriguing than it is. I wouldn’t return.
Great food with super friendly staff. We had the spicy chicken dumplings, tuna tartare, chicken and waffles, avocado toast, truffle fries, cauliflower tots, "oh honey" cocktail, and the "like a bird" cocktail. Everything we ordered was delicious. The chicken (in both cases here) has a kick to it but delicious nonetheless.
Fantastic service and great food.
Charming restaurant. Wonderful service. Delicious food.
Awesome everything: Stellar drinks, the food was Awesome as was the service!
Such a sweet spot to celebrate Sunday Brunch. Handcrafted cocktails were so fun and creative to compliment the menu. A place we will return again and again to try another menu speciality.
Amazing! Awesome! Great wait staff and food!
Food was really good and the host/server had a warm and fun personality that lifted the experience.
Came here for my birthday brunch this past weekend. Everything was amazing and memorable - great cocktails, food, and atmosphere! Service was amazing! Highly recommend!
The service was great and the food was delicious despite a very small choice selection. Would recommend!
The food was phenomenal! We were 4 people who each ate something different and everyone loved their selection.
The most wonderful service. So cute and cozy. 10/10 would return.
Great food and great ambience. Fun servers. Would go again.
The cocktails and food were absolutely incredible!!
Delish (slightly overpriced) food and drinks. Great spot for people watching and the staff are great.
I love this place so much. The food is amazing and Stephen is the greatest. They play great music and the drinks are delicious. GO HERE NOW!!!
This was amazing. I will definitely be back for more.
Aesthetically pleasing! Great food! Great drinks! Great service! What else can you ask for.

Service here is incredible, the drinks are adorable and delicious, and the food is wonderful!!! We will be back soon!! ❤️❤️❤️
I love this place!! It’s one of my favorite restaurants in NY. I just wish there were more food options for brunch. An eggs Benedict would make the menu perfect!
