Our reservation was for 11:45am, our server was doubling as the bartender and neglected his tables. We didn’t get our orders put in until 12:50. We had get up ourselves and get refills on our waters from the bar and we had to have the hostess track down our server to check on our food after waiting 45 mins. The food had clearly been sitting under the heat lamps for some time. The server was nice but the service was extremely bad. I’m thinking it’s because they’re short staffed but if that’s the case, do not give a server a large section of tables and expect them to do well at the bar and his tables. Very poor management. Luckily the taste of the food was delicious but as far as service, terrible.

Food was good but the service was the worst I've had in a very long time. Waitress didn't come to the table with water until about 20 minutes after we sat down and never asked us if we wanted a second round of drinks. Food didn't make it to our table until more than 90 minutes after we ordered.

Everything was great, except the wait, but can understand with Covid and short staffing. Hope they hire more people.

Took a while for the waitress to greet us and take our orders... bar took forever to make our drinks... the kitchen never got our appetizer ticket... and when the food came out it was horrible. We got the flatbread( it was just bread covered with lots of balsamic glaze and some goat cheese, lobster Mac n cheese which was dry and tasteless, the spinach dip with shrimp which was not good and the sweet potato chips that were doused in oil. One of my friends got the blackened mahi which was most definitely not blackened and had no color or taste to it ( sent back) and I ordered the churrasco medium and received it over well, burnt, and inedible. Only good thing I can say was my smoked old fashion was good and the atmosphere was nice! Not worth the food menu hype but if you just want to go sit somewhere outside and drink it’s good for that. Wont be going back. The server was great and sweet and very apologetic but the kitchen is most definitely lacking.

Brunch! Really good food the service was a little slow but nonetheless very polite and professional. For some reason it felt like the air wasn’t working properly that day so it got a little hot quick. Good restaurant with good drinks

Food and service were excellent!
Prices a bit high but it’s ok at this time as I know these small places need to make up their losses.
Dessert was very disappointing other then that perfect meal and a great time.

Mother’s Day, great menu, food took a little long and burgers weren’t cooked or prepared how each of them were requested but they still tasted good.

Been here numerous times and service was bad. Drinks came out after appetizers and one drink had to be reordered because it didn’t come the first time. Had to ask for water refills multiple times, dirty appetizer plates, and second plate for sharing a dinner never came. Was very disappointed.

I verified my reservation over the phone but when I went they told me that they didn’t have any food for my group. Makes no sense at all. We drove all the way there for my birthday only to not be received.

First time visiting with family of 6, no social distance between tables, several dishes not available, server didn’t check on us for refills, food took over an hour to get, appetizers came after entrees, kitchen was short staffed on weekend, too many people seated outside compared to full capacity seating inside, severs were spending more time on outside customers and neglecting those seated inside. Server never asked us if we needed drink refills, not even drinks from the bar, my kids food came out last, even after we deliberately put in their orders first, manager was running around trying to help other customers complaining about lack of service, they tried to remedy the issues with a 25% discount and a coupon for a return visit, I doubt we will be back, it’s a shame because people that are blessed with owning and running a restaurant should make sure customers are happy above all else, otherwise what’s the point.

The server seemed overwhelmed at times. We only saw her attending tables. My wife ordered calamari as an appetizer but took a while to get to the table. As the appetizer arrived, not even 2 minutes had passed and the main courses arrived as well. The spinach and shrimp deep was swimming in oil and could not eat it. Tacos were good. You should not serve 12 oz beer in an 16 oz glass because it looks like you are under pouring . Overall it was ok. MOD no where to be seen.

Waited over 45 mins and asked 3 servers where are appetizers were and nothing. We paid for our drinks and left. This was our favorite Friday night spot and this was the 2nd time this happens. Never again!

When we arrived on Easter for our 2 pm reservation, we were informed that they had run out of food and were closing. There were people that were seated and had already ordered were told that they wouldn't get their food either. We were flabbergasted. I can't believe that their inventory system was so poor that they couldn't tell when they were running low on food. There was a grocery store a block away, that they could have gone to get whatever was needed as a bandaid to get through the lunch. But their lack of professionalism was appalling. There was no apology or anything. Needless to say, I will never recommend this place. One star is being generous.

We arrived 10 minutes ahead of reservation. They had all tables full and said ,"Sorry, we are full so there is nothing we could do to seat you. You'll have to wait about 30 minutes." This establishment does not respect reservations. We left....

This is literally one of the worst restaurant service experiences I have ever encountered. We arrived on time for our 11:15 brunch Open Table reservation.
We were seated fairly promptly. Then we waited outside in the Miami heat for 25 minutes without any acknowledgement from staff. Not even offered a carafe of water!
Finally, I went back inside to the hostess and let her know. I also asked to be moved inside because we were all hot and thirsty by this point. I was very kind and respectful to her.
She was rude and unapologetic...
Our waiter was fair. Our order was not perfect, our shared appetizer was forgotten and we were charged for an extra item. It took is over 30 minutes to get our food so I didn’t even bother and called it day. I just wanted to get out of there.

Great food! Great atmosphere, however, could have been slightly less noisy to not feel like I’m yelling while talking to my friend. Service was very slow, but, my friend and I didn’t mind because we had a lot of catching up to do. Food was amazing!

The restaurant was quaint and cute inside. Our waiter was friendly and recommended the Shrimp Spinach Dip which we loved aside from the fact that we saw a server sprinkle parsley on top of it without gloves on. We were not impressed by the Wagyu beef burger though. The meat had no flavor and was over cooked. Our waiter, while friendly at first, neglected to ask us how our food was.
