Second time at this restaurant and the food is always amazing! Me and my party arrived early and have a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar the service at the bar was very busy but also very non-welcoming. Got to work on that.

Had a great time, executive Chef Ed treated us like VIP's. Chef Samuelson came came over to the table as well. I flew in from Orlando just for the experience and was not disappointed...excellent!!!!

Travelled all the way to nyc to try the fried chicken. It is extremely overrated. Cooks were on there phones, server was nice but spread to thin. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I wouldn’t go back.

Not a lot on the menu to choose from. Chicken and waffle was extremely spicy and I eat spicy food all the time.

The service was very good, but the food was mediocre. Crab cakes were chewy and the yard chicken was dry. Was very much a disappointment.

The service was quite excellent. Servers were attentive but not intrusive. DJ on 3/10/2020 was awesome, she played Haitian music which made my day. Definitely get the Hot Honey Yardbird or the Obama Short Rib. You won't regret it.

The food and service were excellent. We chose to go on a Monday night for a jazz band performance and they did not disappoint.

We had a 2:30 reservation and was on time however wasnt seated until 3:05 .. horrible the. We were told by the waiter to hurry up and decide what we want to order because they kitchen was closing which is our fault cuz we where seated very late and that shouldn't rush the customer

They don’t honor the reservation table type you have and treat you like cattle

I had a reservation and still had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. After I was seated, it took about 15-20 minutes to have our order taken. The food was good, but it took over an hour after ordering for it to arrive at our table and our drinks didn't come out until way after that. Except for the grits i ordered on the side, the food was lukewarm to cold. I wouldn't go back. I gave some leeway because it was saturday brunch, but i would assume they're always pretty busy for brunch and should a stronger grasp of the logistics. There is no rational reason that a mimosa and a cocktail should take damn near two hours to serve.

Overall, very tasty and lovely ambiance. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is my branzino had bones in it which was kind of annoying and slightly dangerous...but I would definitely go back.

The food here is fabulous; the service was excellent -- attentive and quick but not pushy. The noise level is always a little much for me, but with a table of 7 we were able to have 2 or 3 conversations going, so it didn't overwhelm us.

Great place with great food and great service.

Was over on a trip from the UK and have never had American BBQ food in the US before, and this more than delivered. Phenomonal ribs, great corn bread and waffle fries. Service excellent.

We come here every time we’re in the city, and it never disappoints. The food is beyond delicious, inventive yet thoughtful. The staff takes care of you and are just so gracious and friendly. The in house DJ keeps it lively, but it’s not a place for quiet intimate conversations.

Nice atmosphere, good service, good music. BBQ could use a lil smoke flavor in the meat, especially if you’ve baked or boiled them. Try a stove top wood chip smoker toward the end. Other than that good food.
