Other than slow drink service, too-dark atmosphere, bland red snapper, and terrible dinner menu design, this place is great.

They were very friendly, personable staff, hands on manager, observant and precise.

They also gave the table free shots of something house made with honey that was delicious. And brought me Nutella burritos when someone at the table dished it was my birthday.

Very sweet as in kind.

P.S. Risotto is amazing.

Came for a Sunday brunch to celebrate my birthday with 14 people. We had a nice table set up for us in the back. The food was incredible, and the bottomless mimosas were AMAZING!!! The service was great! I think our waitresses name was Ruma... she was so nice and always came to check on us! My guests and I had an amazing Sunday brunch!!!!

The server was nice but she did not introduce herself. It is a Mediterranean atmosphere so when we walked in being african american we received a kind of double take look. No one was rude, the server was nice and kept asking us if we were okay. The food was also good.

We got seated immediately, nice ambiance with upbeat music playing in the background but not too loud where u can still carry on a conversation. Food was delicious. The steak in steak & eggs was a bit small but the host compensated us with free dessert when he ask us about our meal. The waitress was very attentive & they kept coming around to refill our bottomless mimosas. Will definitely come back.

I have been going to this establishment since they first opened and they’re pretty consistent with both their food and their service. As someone that also works in the food and beverage industry I appreciate places that I can go to that are well-rounded establishments where I can relax and enjoy myself. I look forward and continue to frequent this establishment with friends and family!

In spite of having a confirmed reservation, i waited close to an hour for a table. The hostess is far too timid in getting ppl seated and flipping tables. After paying the bill which already included gratuity, the wait staff never returned with my change and assumed it was an additional tip. Under normal circumstances that would be fine, but after an hour wait for a table, i was hesitant to give anything above the $45 tip. The manager did come over after we explained the situation. Needless to say, i won’t be coming back nor recommending this place to anyone ever.

The brunch deal was really good. The service of the wait staff was great. Long wait to be seated even though I had a reservation. I do appreciate that they tried to make it up to us with a free drink, but this was semi-pointless since we were all planning on purchasing the bottomless brunch anyways. Meals came out quickly and drinks were continuously refilled. The food was quite delicious. The music's noise level was tolerable but unnecessarily high for the casual brunch vibe. Overall, positive experience.

The staff is very attentive and the food came out swiftly. The food was great. The one detail that leads my to decrease the overall rating was the quality of the furniture. I have never seen a nice place like this have torn up and stained chairs. It almost made me sad.
