    I have visited the Victory chain in other cities and this by far was the most subpar location. The ambiance was beautiful, but the location was not the best. Parking is unavailable… unless you pay $20 at the parking garage nearby . The staff was unorganized and the service was super slow. Our waitress was nice, but you can sense she was overwhelmed. The food was good and flavorful, but veryyyyy overpriced. Again, I have been to other cities and spent less for the same amount of food and drinks. Our service charge was almost $100, thats a scam in itself. All and all I will never return .

    The service was poor from the host being confused about my reservation to the wait. As well as the servers gave the booth seating away when I requested. Wing didn’t have sauce on it when I requested it to have it. Food was slightly salty

    Came for my friends birthday. Got in and wasn’t greeted by anyone for like 30-45 minutes. Hadn’t received a mimosa for over an hour. The tables in the back are so close to the speakers and the music is SUPER LOUD! We could barely hear ourselves talk and basically had to yell in each others face. I will say the manager on duty was nice and helped a lot once she was freed up to do so. Our waiter must have been busy because we barely saw her. She never came to check up on us. Another thing I don’t like here is how the waiters make you feel you need to pay an additional tip since the “service fee” of 20% goes to all of them. That sounds like a management problem and not mine. So they expect you to pay an additional 18% that goes to them directly. This was my third or so time coming and the quality of the service has gone down. However, the food is still good.

    Great for youthful, dietary flexible, mimosa craving, party loving individuals. Well crafted entrees for brunch with a lean toward flavor over nutrition. Music was repeatedly too loud to hear your own table, waiter, thoughts 😅 We were unexpectedly solicited for photos which we thought were for advertising but were followed up with pretty glass frame print-outs for $20 each. We declined but for another occasion it may be desirable. If you’re looking for a better tasting Bens Next Door, Brooklyn on U, Lost Society, Hawthorne etc this is it. Much darker and moody interior. Think Mirror Lounge with better food + access to hookah. Voila. Enjoy 💕

    The apps are always good , the main courses are horrible . And the service , a mess ! It took 20 min for me to check out and the server didn’t even have a pen for my receipt . They didn’t have enough utensils on the table… when I asked for Utensils they tried to offer me PLASTIC …… you can’t be charging your prices and can’t even give people decent silverware to eat their food. This place needs to be shut down or restaffed/managed . Also the hookah being 90-100… BFFR . Their hookah is TRASH. A dub all around

    This place has gone downhill. Service is terrible and food has become too overpriced, $36 for a waffle with 4 wings is insane. The hookah was priced on the menu for $50 but I was charged $52. On top of this you have to pay an exorbitant service fee for poor service.

    I have been dying to visit the restaurant as I have heard great things. The food was great, the ambiance was for sure a vibe and the music was *chef's kiss*....our server was good and did the best that he could but it seemed that they were a bit short staffed. We ordered hookah and drinks so we didn't mind too much.....until my boyfriend's food was never brought out and they had to remake it. But we still enjoyed our brunch date.

    I went to this place last year and loved it. I spoke so highly of it to friends we decided to go back together. The music was so loud people were visibly annoyed by it. When we asked the DJ to lower the volume he did momentarily then pumped it even louder. We spoke with management who did nothing. Definitely seems like it has turned into a place for a crowd age 21 to 25. More of a trap club which happens to offer expensive dinner. We were charged a 20% service fee on top of the overprice food, then told by the server that fee does not include a tip so she got nothing from it. Of course we tipped her an additional 20%. All in all we paid double in tips and Service charges plus the overprice meal. Never again.

    Service was good overall but also some concerns. It was my birthday so it was disappointing that several items we initially choose they ran out of so we had to pick other items on menu. The wings were very TINY to be $20 or more and I feel the hookah was overpriced . What I can say is after choosing a different entree I was very satisfied with my Salmon it was very delicious and my hus enjoyed his crab fries.

    The food was excellent. The ambiance was nice and the service was great. The music was very loud to the point we were yelling across the table to hear each other. Our server was excellent. The DJ would play good songs and cut it off during the best parts. Overall my cousin really enjoyed herself for birthday which was the goal.

    It was just “ok”. It didn’t live up to the hype for me. The server was really nice however and the shrimp was tasty, just the right amount of crunch. The mac n cheese however was so greasy, I couldn’t eat much of it. It was more of a lounge than a restaurant wouldn’t suggest for having dinner

    We had a great time. Food was good. Got the wings, truffle fries and steak & cheese egg rolls! To drink we had shots and lemon drops with Repasado. Service was great and our waiter was super friendly. The only thing that caught us a little off guard was that even with a reservation guys in the party have to pay a cover. Anybody without a reservation after midnight on the weekends also has to pay a cover. Other than that. We enjoyed ourselves and will be back
