    Had eggs, toast and small red potatoes. Very good and waitress was knowledgeable. Was rather insulted when brunch partner and I were asked to give up out table as others were waiting. I have never been asked to leave a dining establishment in my life. I did not care for it. Next time will go to a larger establishment

    Great menu, specials are yummy. Amanda did a great job in helping us decide on our selections. Most popular cocktail is Jalapeño Paloma; most popular pass menu item is Beef Short Rib Gnocchi. Food was delivered with perfect timing. In all, a great experience - we’ll be back.

    Great new menu (at least for me). The mushroom handles were wonderful, as was the special polenta waffle.. It's great to be able to choose and share from a variety of items on the menu. Our waitress was helpful and just attentive enough to our needs. If you are a gin and tonic lover, try the Gin Tonic. Great dining experience!

    This was the first time I have been to Story Hill BKC since 2019. I used to love the Crep-urrito, so I ordered that again. While the crep-urrito itself was ok (not as flavorful as what I remember) the roasted potatoes were terrible. They were dry and not cooked through all the way. I couldn't eat any of them, which was quite a disappointment. I'm not sure if it was just an "off" afternoon in the kitchen, but I wish I had ordered something else.

    Probably the best sandwich I've had in my entire life. (Had the special Sammy with avocado and jalapeño kick) Noise level. Rock concert. A shame something to absorb it can't be put in place to make things a bit more "calm' versus the frenetic energy. Drapes......cushions.....tablecloths.....anyone, anyone? Our server was fantastic, food spectacular. Thank you for accommodating my request to not sit on top of the people next to us.

    The room was loud. But the people next to us were the loudest in the room. Unnecessarily loud. Oblivious to the existence of anyone else. One woman in particular had a laugh like a car alarm. Management should have said something. In retrospect we should have moved or left, it was so disruptive to our meal. But they were on dessert so we thought maybe they would be gone soon. Nope. Wrong call. But, the food was excellent. Next time will be dinner at the bar, off peak.
