The food is excellent, table service is a little slow but our server was friendly. However the Maitre De was very unpleasant about our fourth person running a little late and incredibly unaccommodating.

Was running a few minutes late and raced to get in on time as this place does not hold your reservation for more than 15 minutes! Arrived upstairs and had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Was greeted by our server after he spent a few minutes chatting it up with the bar tender. No suggestions or specials as he was simply there to take our order. The place was very loud and hard to hear the person sitting across the table. Ordered drinks which took quite a while to come out. Only after another 20 minutes did our waiter come back to take our order. Food came out promptly but a mistake on the type of egg side-no big deal. The flavors of our meals were just okay and the service was sub par. Not to mention the clientele were all the same type of brunch going gals who were loud and obnoxious about their 60 minute all you can drink brunch menu option. Overall would not come back and would not recommend for a brunch

The only issue which in my opinion is an important part of a restaurant experience was the temperature of the food. Both meals came out cold and the restaurant wasn’t at a point where the kitchen could say it was busy. I had to send the steak back which obviously resulted in medium rare becoming well done. The waitress was attentive and super helpful. Overall, the venue has it together and it may have been a one off.

So the rooftop is really nice. The service and food was great. However the music level was beyond reasonable. It was blasting so loud it was intolerable. I realize young kids think this is good but it was at dangerous levels

My review is purely based off of the dining experience. I'd like to come back for some music and dancing later. So take that as a grain of salt.

My companion and I both arrived early ('cause you know, "If you're early, you're on time. If you're on time, you're late.") The hostess was professional and the bar staff very welcoming (I was asked to wait at the bar until my buddy arrived). While I waited, I tried the "They're Playing our Song" cocktail (Kaffir Lime Vodka, passion fruit, grapefruit, lime and ginger)... so good.

Since we were both early, we were seated early and our waiter took our orders in short order. We gave him the appetizers and mains at the same time thinking that we would receive the apps first, followed by mains after we were done with the apps. Instead everything came at the same time, which we thought was odd. Oddity notwithstanding, the food was REALLY good. It was all filling and rich!

For appetizers, we had the tuna poke cigars (which actually came in a cigar box) and the Truffle Fondue. For main courses we went with the Pan Roasted Salmon and the Manischewitz braised short rib. The Short Rib stole the show! We were stuffed halfway through but stayed for dessert (Nutella-covered bread pudding).

Bottom line: The whole experience was pretty pleasant. The food was heavy and filling. Even the decor seemed kind of cool with a slight old school touch. They cleared the tables and chairs for what one would assume were some late-night lounging activities. I think we'll be back for that one day. (Sidenote: We were carded just to enter the building... for dinner. Weird but not a big deal).

We were not very happy with the table we were given, we asked to change tables and the host said they were all booked for big groups. However, there were clearly 4 other tables for parties of 2. We had just ordered our food when we saw the other tables were all seating 2 people. This was really disappointing. The food was good, the server seemed overwhelmed so it was quite slow.

Very noisy on rooftop. Will not seat you until full party is present even if 2 out of 3 are there. Downstairs is a bit more quiet although music from dj is loud, but less people. Chicken and waffles was mediocre. Drinks are great!

Went for brunch to celebrate my birthday with my friends. Service was terrible. Very slow to begin with, once our food came our waitress never returned. We had ordered another round of drinks and never received them. I’m usually super easy going and do not make a big deal about things, but it was totally unacceptable to never return to the table and not even have another waitress take care of us. My friends and I usually go all out at brunch but considering how long everything was taking we only ended up getting one drink. When we finally got another waitress attention and asked if she could get our waitress since we haven’t seen her, she was like well that’s because she stepped out, as if it was something we should have know. Then the new waitress brought a piece of cake to the table with a candle and just left it there without saying anything. We did not receive the birthday sign that all of the other celebrations received in the room. Food wasn’t really great, I ordered the chicken and waffles, which since not specified I assumed was white meat, it was a mixture of white and dark meat and a little fatty. I was hoping for a great birthday experience and didn’t receive it.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience for Saturday brunch. Good food, great service, live music, and strong bottomless brunch cocktails. Although, the hostess who could have been more warm/nicer when explaining the time policy for reservations.

Party of 6 for brunch, each person had something different and all loved their meals! Drinks were excellent and service was solid but not overwhelming. Advertised as Jazz brunch but Sunday there is DJ instead. A little too loud to have conversation without yelling. Overall had fantastic meal in a bright, light filled space

We sat upstairs in the closed in rooftop. It was a beautiful atmosphere. There was a live band playing. The food was delicious and our waitress was amazing. The music was a little loud at times, making it difficult to hear each other, but still a fantastic brunch.

Getting too over run by HUGE party tables. There were 3-4 tables of 12 people or more at the same time when we were there. Makes it ridiculously loud, which is ironic given great jazz band. Whom I pitied.
