    Nice to have this new edition to the UWS. Staff are smart and personable, the space has a great shabby chic vibe and reasonable priced good quality food. I've no doubt we'll return often.

    Good food. I highly recommend the grilled cheese bites. Accountable management. I was not impressed by the broccoli -lack of flavor- and the manager kindly removed the item from my tab. Good food!

    The actual outdoor real estate can seat more than 50 people, but wide-open floor-to-ceiling doors along both walls let in fresh air and sunshine, and make for an alfresco experience wherever you are. Read more

    Hands down the best veggie burger I've ever had! Very original! Only suggestion would be to get it without the cheese, as I personally think that it detracts a little from the overall taste. A+

    I had a burger with cheddar, bacon, fried egg, and jalapenos; girlfriend had Eggs Benedict. Both really hit the spot. Next time we're in the area we WILL be back!

    The cheese bites are delicious and the moreish tomato basil dipping sauce is also available as an off menu soup.

    Great ambiance & happy hour! I DID NOT care for the bison burger. No fault of the chef, it's just a slightly gamey meat. Don't order it if you don't like gamey meat -- had a slightly liver-y taste.

    The bison burger is deserving of its praise. Fish and chips also superb. Great beers on tap. Sweet prompt servers. Great atmosphere. Will come back often.

    Off the menu tip: ask for a soup-sized serving of the tomato soup to go with the delicious grilled cheese. It's a great decision.

    Cute place, but the bloody Mary's need a lil work. They all need a bit more spice, Worcester, salt, lime, and better garnish. Same with the Brew Mary (michelada)

    Bison burger rocks! My daughter says the Ellington Burger is the best she has ever had. Food gets 4 thumbs up! Drafts are awesome as well.

    The wait staff is extremely attentive and friendly. The watermelon salad is absolutely great but the spinach artichoke dip could use a little more flavor.

    The staff is THE BEST, great whiskey selection, acoustic music on the weekends and perfect local neighborhood vibe.

    Amazing bison burger, Ellington burger, and if you're still hungry, order the chicken quesadilla!

    Great veggie burger and fries. The Irish bartender is the best. Also legit beer list.

    Loved the atmosphere and had great service. Definitely don't recommend the nachos though - not enough cheese, no guac, no spice = boring

    Don't get the hue is ranchero for brunch. No bueno. Duke's Omelette is the way to go or the eggs Benedict.

    Good vibe. Go for drinks and get some nachos for a snack. Don't bother with dinner, though.

    Good happy hour deal, neat atmosphere. I like the snacks and appetizers, but the main dishes are lacking

    Best sangria in the neighborhood. Not too sweet. Great place to sit out these flash summer showers.

    Mediocre if not awful brunch. Hollandaise sauce was a salty goop mess. Home fries were dry and stale. Huevos Rancheros was barely edible. With so many alternatives nearby, go somewhere else.

    Burger was great. The chicken sandwich was ok. Chicken could have used some salt.

    You'd be better off eating a sweaty sock than the fish and chips from this place; it would definitely be crisper and less salty.

    Burger is great. Great brunch menu. However service is slow.

    The beer selection is reasonable, but the menu could do with a little more inspiration. The quinoa salad was dry and boring, but the burger was tasty.

    Nothing is good here. The pancakes are sub par and the mimosas were nasty. I would not recommend anyone to come here especially if the manager Glenda is on duty.
