We had a reservation for 7. The hostess was rude, and just told us to go ahead and find our table, like we knew where to go.. then we didn’t get asked for a drink order for over 20 min and it wasn’t even that busy... we decided to leave and go somewhere else.

The service was amazing, continuously filling up our bottomless drinks. The food was also very good, with good sized portions. It was pretty loud of the roof but was still a great time. Highly recommend!

The restaurant initially put us in a little alcove table which was very warm and had very small tables not big enough for the banquet seating. We requested to be moved. The food was good and server was very sweet however the food took a very long time to come out.

Inattentive despite our reservation and sat a party so large to us that we literally had no room to sit and actually was so unbearable we got up and left.

Took over an hour and a half for the food. Waiter was unfriendly and unhelpful. Would strongly recommend to not go.

Our reservation was for four people at 7pm. We did not receive our food until 840pm. The waiter was very nice and apologetic saying they only had “one kitchen”. The first floor was empty, the second floor was closed and the roof (where we were seated was filling up). Everyone was complaining and the manager kept buying rounds of drinks for the various complaining guests seated around us. Honestly don’t know why they couldn’t accommodate the small group seated on the roof when the rest of the place was empty.

Burgers were great! Rooftop a bit small but good enough for 5-6 people group since their tables are the bench type. Awesome place

Food was not all that great. Mimosas were not good and their was a constant loud noise every 30 minutes or so. Sounded like a loud horn.

A vegetarian guest in our party ordered the Veggie burger and was served beef. She didn’t realize it was beef until she took a bite.
There was NO manager interaction. I don’t believe the manager was even notified of the incident as he was seen sharing drinks with the bar staff upstairs.
Our server simply “comped” the burger and proceeded to bring several rounds of unwanted beer/liquor to our table.

Back to the manager: I called an hour before making a reservation to ask whether or not this place had TVs for watching the NBA finals. The manager answered the phone and confirmed they had several TVs, but when I asked if the tavern gets crowded on Friday nights he said “Uh, yeah we already have an hour and a half wait.”
He didn’t ask if I wanted to make a reservation - which I easily made on Open table for a party of 6 in the main dining room. This place was half empty the entire time I was there, which only leads me to believe he’d rather deter patronage in favor of a relaxing night chatting and drinking with the bar staff.
This place needs help in every aspect of service and management.

Four of us went to a bottomless brunch. The waitress was very attentive and continuously checked on us. The food was fantastic as well. I definitely recommend this place.
One thing to know is that all of your party members have to be present to be seated.

Hardly had anything actually available on the menu. Some drinks took ages to arrive and others never did! Not a great experience. Waitress was good, but clearly the place was not up for serving people!

The food was absolutely delicious! The menu is very strict however in a bizarre way. If you wanted to do a slight substitution or change it had to be “okayed”. Very cool spot with an energetic vibe.

Got there and was seated in an area with no server. After about 20 minutes of waiting was told I can go upstairs to roof. Shared a table with a group. Still waited for service but a little better. The food was mediocre. The chicken sandwich with sausage gravy had no chicken. The drinks were the only reason tolerable. The brunch menu online is not the brunch menu given. Do not do it.

We sat on the roof top. Our waitress with the pink hi lights was super rude and took forever to take our order. She made us feel like a burden. We had to beg the other waiter to take our order.

We had to move to the first floor to get served but once we did that the service and food was great. More of a bar vibe than a restaurant.

Much less appealing than it looked on the website. Sticky tables and loud music didn’t help either. We didn’t stay for dinner.

It was not what I expected. It had a loud bar vibe which I guess would be fine for some folks, but we were a group looking for a pleasant place to talk over lunch. Wrong place.

Went for a bite to eat before a night out with friends. We ordered a bunch of starters and shared. We ordered the risotto, French fry basket, margarita flatbread, burrata, and the quesadilla. Everything was delicious! Would definitely go back again to try their brunch!

Booked last minute for a group of ten for brunch and it was really great! The food was good, and you could choose from mimosas, bloody mary, or draft beer.

Had a reservation for 9pm for 4 people. There was no one to greet us so we waited a while but no one came so I had to go looking for a server.
When I finally found a very flushed server she pointed us to an empty table where we sat for a long time without being served so we ended up leaving without even getting drinks.
Terribly loud and unpleasant.
