    Brunch is pretty insane, esp if you are over like...26.

    Rowdy crowd. Must be the result of good music and bottomless booze. The food was just okay.

    The Amish bacon is delicious - a great combo of sweet and savory. Oeufs paradou is decent. Champagne cocktails are free flowing - shared 7 carafes for 4 people in 2 hour time slot.

    The Bitches say: D-. It’s completely unacceptable for restaurant management to cuss out customers and on top of that, the food was mediocre at best. Save your money and go elsewhere in Meatpacking. Read more

    Don't get wake n bake, it's good but I think there are better dishes to try there. Brunch is overpriced imo for larger parties

    This is one of those places that in theory sounds like a great time, but in reality is a nightmare. Rude staff, ridiculous pricing, no accommodations and just so so food. Save money and go elsewhere.

    Very fun brunch atmosphere. They play new music from an iPhone and if you have a fun crowd people will dance in the back

    The pre fixe brunch, with unlimited champagne, is a good deal, especially if you can score a table in the delightful garden. Read more

    On the expensive side, everything is typically tasty and well prepared, especially a sprightly salad of seared scallops and shaved fennel and a tartine smothered in Parmesan and garlic mayonnaise. Read more

    Try "bruschetta francaise" and pressed sandwiches that run from the expected (ham and Gruyere) to the unexpected (duck rillettes and capers). Read more

    This place is horrible for large parties. We waited over 2 hours and they only took $55 off the check for a party of 13. I will tell people again and again this place sucks. EFFIN ridiculous

    This was one of the worst experiences I've ever had. I would not recommend it if your party is big. We waited nearly 3 hours for food that wasn't all that good. I will a NEVER come back to this place.

    Waiting for my party for brunch. Was told I can't sit at the bar and wait as it is full of patrons. Umm... Am I not going to be a patron? Maybe I will order a drink at the bar? #jerks

    Skip it. Overpriced, overrated, and the staff rushes you out and is very rude while they do so. There are endless brunch spots in Manhattan that are light years better and friendlier. Keep looking.

    Great meal and fair price. However, it was the first time in the US someone did not bring the full change. They kept the coins.

    BF: Deal: Prix fixe brunch with AYCD champagne for $29 (for parties of two to seven). Price increases with more people. Bonus: The atmosphere is really rowdy and you’ll feel like you’re out clubbing.

    Go somewhere else for dinner. Bland food, shitty service. Nice enclosed heated garden but not worth your time. Can't speak for the brunch though.

    Enclosed back garden area is great for sunny winter days. (Also, be careful with the champagne brunch, those pitchers are generous.)

    Make reservations and come with a large group of friends and enjoy brunch with unlimited champagne cocktails in the back garden. We'd recommend the Wake & Bake or the Shakshuka.

    Unlimited champagne brunch for $29 (entree & cocktails) will leave your wallet and your stomach happy. Though that probably isn't true for your liver.

    Great for bday brunches -- all-you-can-drink champagne cocktails w/ delicious food. 2-hour time limit on the drinks so wait until your whole party has arrived to kick things off.

    Burger was nothing special, nor was shakshuka. And they don't serve bloody marys for brunch. Nice garden though. And as gehres says "its like a beautiful day in a dance club garden"
