The host and hostess that dealt with my group were very friendly. I had questions and they answered them with no issue. Once everyone in my group showed up, we were seated in the area that was reserved for us. Our waiter was friendly and great with recommendations that one of my friend's asked about. He was well aware of the three kids in our group and made they were taken care of as well. Overall, the food was great, the music was awesome especially since I grew up listening to hip-hop and R&B from the 90s, and the atmoshpere was excellent. I've been to this particular location before and finally got a chance to come back. I've even visited other locations in Manhattan. Everyone in my group said they would like to come back as well.

They didn’t have our table ready for reservation and restaurant was far from crowded. One appetizer arrived frozen on inside and waiter didn’t apologize or offer a free dish. Kitchen sink salad greens were a little mixed in freshness. Other ms are great this one not so much.

HI Max, thank you so much for visiting us in Williamsburg and for sharing your feedback - we're sorry to hear that your experience was anything less than stellar, especially regarding the appetizer as these are all made fresh in house daily, and never frozen. Reaching out privately for more info!

Food was excellent. Waiter fixed a mistake for an order with a brand new entree which was nice. My only complaint is the bar staff. My two friends and I stood at the bar for a drink before we were seated and we were not acknowledged. The bartenders were both busy and I am more than happy to wait my turn for service but you could literally smile at us and say “we’ll be with you in a moment” instead of us standing there and you can’t even make eye contact for a brief moment to acknowledge people standing at the bar. Bar was empty too. Only one couple sitting there only so I didn’t get that?? We ended up leaving the bar without a drink to go to our table. Didn’t appreciate that, other than that great time. I would suggest the bartenders improve their manners as this is a customer service industry right?

Really pleasant place to eat. Food was lovely but I had visited a couple of years back and felt that it wasn’t quite at the same standard as before. The staff were really friendly and helpful.
