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

    Outdoor patio ftw. Also, bottomless mimosas on the weekends doesn't hurt.

    The food was absolutely amazing, bottomless mimosas for Sunday brunch, although service was a bit slow, still an amazing place!!

    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.

    Try the Squash Blossoms with ricotta cheese and truffle honey on the Happy Hour menu. Delicious. Also on Friday's and Saturday's they have DJ's in the lounge from 10:00pm to 1:00pm.

    Great service, although I have to say the bus boys/gals do do most of the work fair play (not just here everywhere)!

    Really picaresque spot with outdoor seating. Even when raining (rare), there are canopies.

    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.
