I used to think this place had the best brunch in the area but the quality and service has gone down tremendously. I won't be dining here again, even though it's a neighborhood staple.
Killer brunch, the duck hash is the most popular item for a reason. Sit at the bar, get a bartender to make you a custom cocktail, anything with bourbon.
Kind of average. Lots of yelling from the kitchen. Not a great brunch spot with a hungover.
Share small plates (the egg salad crostini is rich with lardo but not overwhelming), get a pasta, and split the Bavette (steak). Save space for the sticky date cake, it's moist, sugary, and amazing!
The date cake is proof that a mouth can have an orgasm.
Strong Bloody Mary ahoy
Pork chop melts in your mouth, there seasonal cocktails are excellent as well! Summer salad, crostini, oysters and dessert doughnuts are all must. Fantastic eats, service and ambiance.
A great place to splurge and order the steak. Friendly staff and great cocktails.
Sadly this place has gone a bit downhill. The service is slow and it's too crowded. I probably won't be going back.
Excellent for dinner with friends/colleagues. Cocktails are always on point, but the consistency & creativity of the food that pulls you back. End it with a glass of Madeira with the sticky date cake!
Shrimps and grits are great
The duck hash was so tasteful
Pancakes with creme fraiche and maple syrup are divine
Empire State Sour, burger and shrimp & grits
Start with some roasted fig and ricotta. Try their fish specials. If you like refreshing citrus drinks, get the cool hand cuke.
Charcuterie! And a cocktail. And oysters. 😍
Amazing lightly fried chicken
Great service. Sit at the bar in the back, order the fish.
The spaghetti squash is a gluten-free diner's dream!
I had the Empire State Sour cocktail, yum :) The House Ricotta was delicious. The Pork Chop was a bit too salty for me, but my friend really enjoyed the Butcher's Cut. End with Sticky Date Cake!
Ricotta crostini, pork chop, and the burger are phenomenal!
The duck hash is amazing.
Nice place, food was a little on the buttery/oily side.
attractive room, staff is attentive and friendly.
Martinis, Bloody Mary, burger, oysters
Duck hash is amazingly good. Warm mini donuts wonderful. Biscuit Benedict good. House cured salmon and potato pancakes a bit disappointing - salmon bland and pancakes a little too crispy.
Better for dinner than brunch. Avoid the pancake (doughy, thick, and not made with love).
Amazing brunch! Scrambled eggs are delish and you can get filled doughnuts.. #brunchpudding
$1 oysters from 4pm to 7pm, plus amazing cocktails and killer burgers. menu is full of yummy small dishes, too.
Monkey bread is amazing. Menu rotates, but is always fantastic.
Shrimp and grits are excellent. Leek and mushroom scramble was ok, but similar dishes are done better elsewhere in the neighborhood
BLT was excellent.
Colonie burger is on point.
Get the duck hash at brunch, and come for the happy hour oysters!
Duck Hash for brunch with a Bloody Caesar
Stay away from brunches. Not great
Colonie was disappointing. The waitress was overly pushy. The pork chop was delicious, but was extremely fatty. The extreme darkness of the restaurant made it hard to eat since I couldn't see my food.
Fun twists on classic dishes, great cocktails, cool space. Great for brunch or dinner, but don't expect a bargain.
Love brunch here. The best scrambled eggs I had for years.
This Burger. Get it even if it's not "on the menu" today. Just wow.
Everything is good. I love the duck egg.
