    Have never been that impressed with the service here. Brunch food isn't very good. Drinks have been getting better in recent years, though.

    Food is really good. It said they closed qt 12am but when we got there the server told us the kitchen was closing at 10pm and we had to order quick. Other than that everything was great.

    Ask for Joshua as a server, bring your dog for outdoor seating at brunch, and try the banana filled French Toast. You'll thank me!

    Eat the octopus. You won't regret it and neither will she. Then ask the bartender for a Purity martini (and specify that you'd prefer he stir it). The trend in this part of LA is to shake them.
