    Stay away from this place, if you like service and getting treated for your money. Food is to average to be treated this way.

    To be honest, the meal was horrible. Took 25 min to get milk for my now cold coffee and the omelettes were overcooked ant the toppings were just thrown on top rather than cooked in the eggs.

    $16 all you can drink wine, and a $20 all you can drink brunch special on weekends. One of the best places on the UWS.

    The brunch food is way above average, but the place has a very odd atmosphere mix of casual/ formal. If you're underdressed, or try to be funny, it's as awkward as wiping your ass with sandpaper.

    great for boozy brunch with the ladies. $16 gets you unlimited refills of the alcholic beverage of your choice (bloody marys, bellinis, sangria..etc)

    Prosciutto di parma panini was delicious, indeed. But, my water glass came w/ a dead fly. Expect oceans of time in serving food. In exchange for staying forever.
