Was our third time to visit. Restaurant very busy but the staff managed to keep things very orderly and on pace. Menu is significant enough that you will have a hard time deciding. Everything looks good and everything we've tried so far was excellent.

A very lively place.

Have been here several times and this is the ONLY time I have been disappointed. Might just be a result of current staffing challenges but we arrived and took a long time to get our drink orders. Next we ordered soup and in came without spoons. When we finally were able to flag down waiter he said yes sorry we are short spoons they should be coming out soon? Our waiter was very nice but think he had too many tables and seemed new or needed more training. Had to flag him down on several occasions for more water etc. Main course came out late but was good as usual.

Ask for better seating for our reservation. Did not recommend anything better, but another couple was moved to a better seating than ours. Large portions for money.

This is normal a fave with my husband and I and another couple. We always make reservations. Last night when the temps were in the 30's they sat us right next to the constantly-opened front door. I can't even believe they sat us (or anyone) there. We asked to be moved immediately. We were sat right next to the kitchen but at least we were warm. So reservations and frequent visits apparently do not matter. The food did not seem as good (for any of us) as usual (some wasn't hot, one plate came much later than the others), and the noise seemed to be off the charts, but maybe that is because we were right by the kitchen. Our service was great, but I think we are dropping the place as a date night.

Our waiter was Daniel he did an excellent job accommodating us and making sure all our questions were answered. To be pretty packed the service was timely and food great!! We weren’t rushed such as other brunch places that give you a time limit or rush you. Food was great and the frozen and mimosa flights were phenomenal! 10/10

Reservation was booked weeks in advance for a Birthday Brunch. Two orders were incorrect. Waited over 30 minutes for replacement avocado toast. Still incorrect and sent back to the kitchen. Also, our server, Kennedy, was slow. He may have had a large party/section?! We flagged him down for everything! Our server and last experience were so great…could not wait to return. However, after Sunday’s experience, highly doubt I can convince my brunch group to return.

It didn’t seem that busy but we were there almost an hour to get food. Catfish po boy was lacking in catfish. Service was terrible. I think we saw our waiter 3 times. Never did get a refill of water I was promised the 3 times he came by. Won’t go back.
