    Our server, Farah was incredible! Appreciated her honesty regarding the changes we were requesting to the chicken & waffles dish - much respect to the chef for creating such a masterful dish that is not meant to be customized. Thank you for a wonderful Sunday brunch!

    My family have been patrons of Pinch Kitchen since they opened. We have enjoyed lots of great meals there. My guest had never been to Pinch Kitchen. She said she loves a Cuban Sandwich but often is disappointed. She was NOT disappointed with the Cuban she got at Pinch Kitchen. Julia was our server and took great care of us the entire time we were there. I know my guest will return .... Our family will continue to enjoy our meals at Pinch Kitchen.

    Service was just okay, food mediocre, my fries appeared to have been left over and reheated. Noise level was off the charts, couldn't even have a conversation. The only pleasant part was for having coffee on the back terrace.

    The food was good but what killed it for me was my bloody mary drink had too much heat and then I asked for spicy aioli sauce on the side for my chicken sandwich but they left it in. So not only was my mouth on fire from the heat of the bloody mary but now the sandwich too. And I love bloody mary's and the heat that comes with it but this was just too overwhelming for me. I was told the bartender makes the mix from scratch (which is pretty cool) but the amount of jalapeños is already mixed in so there was no way to get a milder version. I think they should consider this for people like me who enjoy this drink alot. If you've ever had a bloody mary drink from the Yellow Green Farmers Market, a place called Liquid Remedy - the bartender also makes his own mix and it's savory with just the perfect amount of heat. I appreciate theh offered to get me another drink but I decided to stick with the bloody mary (mistake on my part). Overall, I would come back and give it another try (just not the drink or the sandwich lol).

    Our waitress was amazing and the food had an in house twist on all meals. I had the berries and cream waffle and it was absolutely amazing. $25 bottomless mimosas with a cutoff after an hour and a half. Overall a great and fun experience for our girls!

    I think the price is too high for what they offer. Besides it looks like the plates are getting smaller from last time I was there. There is also not a big variation to choose from. However, the service is nice and the ambiance is very cool.

    Wait service was horrible. They call it “bottomless” but once they put the pitcher on the table, they never come back. We waited 20 minutes for a water refill and they were NOT slammed at all. No excuse. The food was good but too salty.

Cudos to our server. She made us feel welcome and she had a great smile. The food was fantastic and the bar served a generous portion. Great evening after a Easter vigil. definitely a repeat

    Not impressed. We heard this place was the go to brunch spot. Our food took forever and everyone got there food at different times. The waitress seemed lost and I don't think it's cool to smoke your vape pen where your table can see you. We never got the croquettes or brussel sprouts but we just paid and left. This is our second time here and the best thing was the ceviche and the burger ( 20 bucks btw and my bf had to eat alone bc the rest of our food was taking too long and he didn't want cold food). The ambience outside is pretty and the bathrooms are clean. Just order to go.
