    LoKal breakfast sandwich is phenomenal. Steak tartare for dinner is a must. I do hate that every time I pick a favorite entree, they slightly tweak it so it's never the same and never as good as 1st X

    The brunch menu here is amazing. French omelet with portabella mushrooms was rich in flavor. Potato pancakes remind me of ones my uncle used to make and are a fave. Tuna sandwich? Wow.

    Just organized a family brunch outing here. They honored and followed through on a 12 person reservation. Decent food, friendly staff. Affordable. I'll be back.

    If you don't mind a "rare" cooked fish (especially if you enjoy sashimi), the tuna burger is what dreams are made of.

    Gets real weird after 10. Ultimate fighting on the TV, DJ and his posse take over, and the staff starts doing shots.

    Service & atmosphere were terrible. Extremely slow and they had a horrible DJ playing at 10pm on a Tuesday. Just, why? Tuesday's have 1/2 off all entrees, food was decent. I wouldn't go back
