    I love the East Pole and have been a customer for many years. I heard service has deteriorated recently, but now that I had dinner there yesterday, I can see what people mean. It is not the attendants or waiters, it is that when it is packed, it is REALLY hard and a bit annoying having to wait for your specific waiter / waitress to help you out. I don’t understand why they work like that but they are definitely stretched in staff and as a result you can feel the overall experience drops because you truly have to wait sometimes 5-8 mins for your waiter to show up. Other than that the place is awesome. Prices might be getting into the pricey side. We paid basically $400 for a dinner of two with 3 glasses of wine each and we shared the appetizer, main & 1 dessert. Felt a bit high considering we shared everything.

    Pros: atmosphere and service was great. Cute area Cons: My mom and I split our dishes and both got sick at the same time afterwards. My stepdad did not get sick. I did not give my stomach virus to anyone else. In my opinion, it had to be the food. Even if it wasn’t the food, it was overpriced considering what we ate. Food was fine but nothing to go out of your way for.

    Sat at the bar for brunch, and it was very nice. Had a Bloody Mary type drink with beet juice. Healthy! Enjoyed the Mothers’ Day eggs Bennie special (with lobster). Very nice assortment of breakfast breads while waiting. Good experience!

    The food was good except for espresso which did not taste good. Service was good and attentive but also seemed a little understaffed. I would recommend this place for a fun evening with friends.
