    Decent cheese selection but the bread is awful - puffy white bread that can't hold up to the cheese.

    Falafel salad was excellent but the duck hash was 🔥🔥

    The Maven Bloody Mary is unique. It's not too spicy but has a soft heat. Topped with picked fennel and tiny pickles, the flavor leans towards a watery V8, rather than Tabasco. Worth a try. 👌🏻

    Really great for date night or a small group of friends. Excellent cocktails, small bites, and ambiance. Upstairs is a great view if it's not rented out.

    A classy, delicious, and unique twist on the form comes in the Maven Bloody, served only at brunch, which includes basil, balsamic vinegar, Tabasco, horseradish, and house-made pickles. Read more

    Snuggle up to Maven's fireplace, which is tucked in the loungey upstairs corner, with any of the cocktail haven's stellar drinks. Read more

    Cocktails are killer here. The vixen and purple reign are drinks you want to never stop ordering. Quite dangerous.

    Friendly, helpful employees. At least three diff people asked if we needed drinks! Nice cocktails. Low key vibe. For adults.

    This place is known for sliders and cocktails. Choose the option starter + cocktail and you will be really happy. Cocktails are more likely authentic than modern, it is important to understand.

    Stick with the burger. Ask for extra remoulade. Fries are good ask for them well done

    An outstanding cocktail program (Christmas in Oaxaca may be the best mezcal drink I ever had), strong service but the food lacked a little unfort.

    I'm not a big salad guy, but that brunch Smoked Trout Salad was insanely good, especially with The Maven Bloody Mary and luxurious Billionaire's Bacon. Read all about my visit on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    I was once standing near the kitchen when one of the waiters came out and offered me the extra duck sliders that no one ordered. That was awesome. But I would totally have paid for them, yum.
