    Sat outside. Our server was wonderful. The heat must have been on extra high in the restaurant. We got the cauliflower, burrata, and drinks.

    The music was not a vibe match for the restaurant (they played Like a G6 on a Sunday at 11:30 AM???) and was a bit too loud for comfortable conversation. But the food was delicious and service was good.

    First time I came for brunch, we got seated but waited almost 15 minutes for a server to come so we ended up leaving. Decided to make resos for brunch to try again with a girlfriend and ordered their cute “drink pink Rose Flight” as advertised on their website. The server came back with three glasses of wine by itself without the tray w flowers as shown online. I asked her if it came with the tray and she looked at me confused and responded that it doesn’t come with that. Me and my girlfriend thought to ourselves, the photo is the main attraction or else we wouldn’t have ordered it so that was a tad annoying. Then I ordered a side of “house fries”, it was literally cut up roasted potatoes. The place has potential and it’s cute but server was slow and I had to get her attention multiple times when she wasn’t doing anything, also the information to what we received was misleading.

    Saturday brunch was excellent. We sat outside in the nicely decorated structure. Our server was charming and on top of things. We ordered an omelette, eggs hollandaise and steak and eggs. All were perfectly cooked and nicely presented. It was a terrific experience and those biscuits are fantastic.

    This is a great, trendy spot on the Upper East side for a friend gathering. It did get a little loud, but it added to the energy. Food was very good and the presentation was beautiful. Ambiance was ok, a bit dark and it felt more like a bar than a restaurant. Maddi was our server and she was outstanding.

    Solid brunch with unlimited mimosas, margs, and bloody marys. Service was fantastic. One negative was that the restaurant was VERY cold. It was a cold day but they should have turned up the heat. People were wearing their coats and scarfs at their tables to stay warm.

    It was lovely! Went rather early - 5:30- so it was not very populated, but by the time we left the tables were full of couples! The food was amazing- the mushroom risotto especially. The drinks were delicious, and the Daniella was a great host. Can’t wait to go back.

    The waiter charged us for 6 bottomless when there were only 4 of us, and he tried to blame it on us. Service was super slow if not existent. We had to consistently try to get the waiter’s attention to order. The food was good, but the service really ruined it.

    They cancelled our reservation without letting us know. We arrived at the restaurant (all 8 of us) excited and ready to have a nice afternoon, just to get told that we could not dine in since they were closing. I asked why the reservation was available on Open Table and they said it was a mistake. I asked why I couldn’t receive a phone call or text ahead of time to let me know the the reservation was canceled….*crickets* really disappointing and they didn’t even apologize. Do not recommend.

    This was a less than satisfying experience. My wife’s chicken was tough and a little over cooked. My burger was tasty but dry and not medium rare. We are return customers who previously have had a satisfying experience. Based on our latest experience we may not return again.

    Had brunch reservations. The waiter brought us coffee and never came back to take our order it had been 25 minutes. He went to every table that sat after us and took their order. We had to walk out because we would have never got our food. Extremely disappointed was really looking forward to going.

    Loved it. Only reason 4 stars for service was due to the server being new - which we understand… can’t wait to go back. Had the omelette with my fav ingredients - spinach, asparagus, egg whites and guacamole - tasty and healthy hubby had delicious steak and eggs. Good mimosa as well!

    Didn't realize the noise level was so high-made it difficult to catch up with my girlfriends. Service was slow but it looked like they were shortstaffed. It wasn't cool enough inside and there was a stale bar smell. I would order the zucchini chips again but probably for take out.

    Some of the worst service. We were seated, ordered drinks and food. Waitress (young blond girl, she never told us her name) brought out drinks, kitchen staff later brought out food. We finished drinks and wanted to order another round, but waitress never came back by. Instead, she was talking with her friend eating at the end of the bar with the bartender. Then watched them take shots with a couple friends at the bar. Then resumed wasting time with the bartender and her friend at the end of the bar. It was not a busy day, she wasn’t working hard, just socializing. We finished our meal then waited at least another 15 min before having to go to the bar to interrupt her, the bartender and her friend, in order to ask for the check and waters. She brought a pitcher to pour water, and at that time realized she never even gave us water glasses. I still tipped 18%, but actually shouldn’t have tipped her half as much. To ignore customers, do shots and chat with the bartender and her friend the ENTIRE time, is ridiculous. Will never go back to this place!
