The live jazz was great. Just a bit too loud for the space....

The service here is absolutely stellar. The host, the server, the bartender, everyone we encountered was attentive, conscientious and courteous. The food wasn't good so I wouldn't return. The menu looks amazing but our eggs and crab cakes were overdone. The best part of the dishes were the sides of salad and home fries...not a good sign. The drinks were great, though. We had cocktails as well as wine. You gotta love a mixologist who knows how to use chartreuse!

We made a reservation for outdoors but upon learning there were no heat lamps or sidewalk shed (late November) we moved indoors without issue.

Made reservations for 12:15 as they open at 12 for brunch. Was nervous that the jazz musicians wouldn’t be playing yet so I was thrilled when we rounded the corner and could hear them. Great sound. Unfortunately a little too loud for one of my daughters so we sat outside. Great food. Great service. Would highly recommend.

The noise was very loud. Only complaint is that it was very difficult to talk to one another. I found myself yelling.
But the food was awesome!!

Reserved an outdoor table. When I arrived, they said they didn't have any, so I agreed to an indoor table. Took considerable time to get waited on: the service was slow throughout. They had live music which was also very, very loud. The food was good though. The whole experience was "extra"--not sure I would go there again for brunch.

The food was tasty however, I ordered lobster mac & cheese which contained absolutely no lobster. The waiter was kind enough to remove the order from my bill. Other than that the restaurant is great. I plan to return and obviously I will not order lobster mac & cheese again.

Food was yummy! I was given a paper menu tho that didn’t have brunch on it (and that’s what we were there for) so that was confusing and I really wanted brunch… but I’ll eat anything and the apps definitely hit the spot

It took 30 minutes to get a drink- the apps were not good at all. The drinks were bad. The server did what she could do. Don't come for dinner - stick to brunch

We sat outside. Bonus is that the restaurant is on the shaded side of street early in the day so outdoor seating was relatively cool. The food is quite good.

The vibe was great. Nice music, terrific ambiance, great a/c. The Asian chicken wings were fire 🔥. The salsa verde w/ the fish tacos 🌮 was awesome. I definitely will be coming back for more.

Came here for Sunday brunch and enjoyed the atmosphere. The restaurant had a live band playing jazz the day we went and really set the mood. Service was fast and friendly and they made sure my glass was always full with a mimosa. I had the French toast and Mac and cheese trio. The best one of the trio was classic Mac and cheese. Would come
back again for brunch!

Really great addition to Harlem's restaurant scene, but there are a few things they could do to take their food from average to excellent. We had the mac and cheese trio which was good but incredibly heavy and missing some green on the side. Chicken and waffles were disappointing, the dish could use a bit of spice on the chicken and more crunch on both. The shrimp and grits were very good, probably the best item we ordered. We also ordered the crab cake appetizer which was really delicious but came with a lot of water on the plate because the side salad wasn't well-drained. Cocktails were nice, but too sugary. Just generally an extra bit of care with the food would go a long way.
Service was great, ambience was perfect - there was live jazz when we sat down which was exquisite.

I came for brunch and ordered a crab cake which wasn’t edible it tasted old and I got nausea immediately. Then my friend and I ordered drinks first time the food came before the drinks but the drinks took about 30mins to come. It was not crowded at all and our service was just at the bar. We paid for the food we didn’t like and left

The decor and vibe with the live band was nice. On the downside, the band was too loud causing us to have to almost yell to talk to each other. My other disappointment was the service being subpar.

The service was very slow. Though I generally don’t mind having time to take things slow and to relax, at some point you have to check on people and bring the check. The food was all tasty and well prepared though the steak should have been medium and was cooked just about well done. I’d go back for another round.

Family get together from 4 stares. The pl ace is jumping but really portrays that great NYC vibe!! Best tapas ever: dint miss lobster empanadas, chicken wings, crab cake. Every one we had was fabulous. Drinks great! For summer, strawberry daiquiris. A do not miss place if you live NYC.

Nice Sunday brunch vibe with a jazz combo. Waiter was pleasant but service (food prep?) was slow. Very nice manager checked on our table and others, sometimes assisting with serving.
Brunch selections (eggs benedict and open faced BLT) were ok. Appetizer (shrimp taco) was excellent.

Sunday brunch with a Jazz Comb that played at fortissimo the entire time. It was extremely obnoxious. Unfortunately, the food wasn’t great. My date had the Shrimp & Grits. The cheese grits had no salt in them and the shrimp was under cooked. I had the Crab Cake Benedict. It was very fishy and quite unpleasant. They replaced it with the Chicken & Waffles…not the best.

It’s unfortunate. I was looking forward to this experience. I guess if I go back I’ll sit at the bar and have a cocktail. The Raspberry Sour was delicious!

The place was clean, I enjoyed the entire I selected (waffle & spicy chicken) was tasty & I would order it again.
The music was turned up a little too loud for conversation. Overall experience was good.
