Not at all as advertised and the staff was horribly unreceptive to guests.

To be honest, I had low expectations for Brunch at Pinks. It was $29 for two entrees and bottomless drinks for two people. Often when something sounds too good to be true, it is. BUT I figured at the very least, $15 a person was worth it for the drinks alone. From the second I walked in (before my friends, they were running late) I felt welcomed and like a valued customer. The staff couldn't have been nicer and were completely understanding of my late friends (why the subway was running Express was a mystery to all of us). When my friends got there, the friendliness was extended to them, they noted how warm and welcoming the waitress was. The food was delicious, 3/4 of us got burritos, one got the quesadilla. All of us loved our meals and were super satisfied with our choices. The bottomless drinks were constantly refills and delicious. I will definitely be returning without a Pulsd deal, but man, it was worth it.

The food and drinks were excellent, however the service wasn't the best. The bartender was really cool with us, but the waitress never made contact with us, we pretty much had to stand up and go to the bar every time we needed a refill on drinks and when we ordered food. Even though we had a reservation, when we got there it seemed like it didn't matter but the waitress never came to us, they suggested to sit on the bar, but we didn't want to, that's why we reserved and wanted to sit with our friends and talk. One table for 4 was available and for 15-20 minutes was like that until we asked the bartender if we could sit there, again he was pretty cool with us, but the waitress seemed upset with us for no reason.

Pinks would be great for a birthday party brunch at the last minute. As for brunch for 3 people... food wasn't great and the place was empty. The service was 5 stars though.

Went there for brunch and was extremely disappointed with the food. The service was awful - all of our items arrived much later than the the others - which was annoying. No one was at the restaurant and it still took forever. Will not go back

I loved coming to PINKS. Got to meet the owners aswell and learned a little bit about the bar. I found this gem by accident while scrolling through my fever app and I'm so glad I decided to come in. Definitely will be back. Food was delicious especially the guac. Loved the little kick in it. All and all I would totally recommend this bar my friends. 😋

This was awful. I made a booking in advance for a 2:30pm brunch, and the night before (very late) I received a text saying they were cancelling it because of Santa Con. Really poor service and organization, will never be trying to go back.

Live music was very very loud, so don’t come expecting to have conversation. Loved the vibe and drinks.service was phenomenal. A great place to stop by to relax if you’re in the east village.

Went there for brunch on Groupon. Food was okay, nothing special. Drinks were pretty bad, watery and tasteless. Service was so-so. Not going back.

Terms of the all you can drink mimosa brunch changed - from $27 for 2 hours to $35 for 90 minutes. Food was meh - clearly just had a giant pot of ground meat to put on whatever dish you ordered.

Brunch menu is very limited for the price! Drinks were indeed bottomless but not very good quality and food was not a very big portion or good quality. This is a good place for friends dinner but as a brunch place it is lacking and perhaps needs to find its way

Restaurant was at capacity upon arrival and we were told there was a 45-60 minute wait. What is the point of a reservation?! The staff worked hard to accommodate us and it ended up being a pleasant experience once seated, despite the restaurant being short staffed and getting seated 30+ minutes past reservation time, but I can't say it's an experience I would recommend.
