    Such a great brunch deal! Food was pretty good, and drinks were great. Except the coconut sangria tasted like lemonade (which is fine because it was good) and food was a little on the cooler side.

    Besides the facts that the music can be very loud and the service is a little slow, I do have to say that the music is jamming with 90's beats and the food is savory and flat-out delicious.

    Great wknd brunch that comes w/unlimited daytime cocktails + a live jazz band. Perfect for those lazy Saturdays, when you live in the neighborhood and don't want to venture to the UWS for ambiance.

    If you're a fan of Hip Hop and Latin music, this is a great spot to bring your friends to! It transforms from a cozy restaurant to a dance club full of vivacious music!

    Indoor ambience or outdoor entertainment? Paella with a music bent. Upstairs, downstairs. There is something to please most tastes. Go inside for dining and outside for partying. Upstairs for drinks.

    Had brunch here on a Sunday recently and it was good. They have really stepped up their game and this is now THE BEST place to visit and eat at in all of Harlem.

    Pins Colada French toast was great. Too bad it doesn't come with any sides. However my side of Bacon sufficed. The Punta Cana sangria was tasty and I'm not a sangria fan at all.

    You can only order the brunch special on weekends until 4pm. They have a Jazz band playing and the outdoor space is nice. But I didn't like the food, I'm most likely not be coming back here for brunch

    Upon arriving hostess was horrible. Then waited to be seating for an intimate evening of wine and dinner and there's a baby stroller at the bar with a woman! I was in awwwww! Babies at the bar omg

    Have the coconut sangria - it's amazing. Sans all the fixins; shaved coconut, apple bits make it a lil too much.

    First I got patted down and violated at the door, paid cover before midnight, expensive drinks, and carded multiple times within my first ten mins at the door. Last time coming here.

    Food decent. Hostess wasn't too gracious and asked my brunch group to make room for the non-existent dinner crowd.

    It was gorgeous sitting outside by the water but the food i felt was little overprice and the portions were small but go there for the outside bar more then their food.

    For a hearty, lower cost meal, combine the $5 sides.

    Don't waste your time. The security will try to throw you out or cheat charge you for anything, and the music and service is nothing special.
