The Waiters were so friendly and attentive. Food was very very good but cocktails were a bit pricy. Will definitely be back.

The menu was quite limited, it was described as "all-day menu" but when I requested the Steak Sandwich I was told that salads and sandwiches were no longer available. The food was a bit pricey but it was a nice meal all-in-all, staff are very warm and attentive, the highlight of the experience.

Poor quality of food, didn’t come close to matching the ambience. We were asked if we wanted to order more drinks which we did, and then told that we needed to give the table back in 5 mins. Drinks had not even arrived at that point. Poor service in general. Waiting 20 minutes before anyone let us order.

Fabulous ambiance and fantastic service however food portions were a little on the smaller side, would liked to have added a side but there wasn’t any listed on the brunch menu. Other than that would recommend to a friend.

Service was great, we had a really nice & helpful waitress named Lucia! The Terrace is also really nice but could use a few more heaters for the middle section!

Our server, Mario, was so helpful and attentive. The outdoor seating was beautifully decorated and nice and warm (which was especially nice as the weather was awful). Definitely recommend!
