    Pretty solid food although they had a hard time with our large group. My food was not hot enough.

    Brunch is loud and the host may give you a hard time, but the staff is great the pan con tomato is a good choice. A reservation is necessary for a table but brunch at the bar is allowed.

    I went for Summer Restaurant Week and the food was delicious. The Sockeye Salmon was the best I've ever had. Sit outside, the patio lights are pretty neat.

    Tables outside on the patio are best for overall brunch experiences (less noise than inside). Brunch bottomless mimosas end at 3pm so try to arrive by noon or 1pm.

    Never again, the chef pretty much burnt everything, including the fries. It was also expensive.

    awesome. love the rose Malbec

    Raegan · July 28, 2013

    There’s a healthy-sized wine selection, and the snacks are just what we need: bite-sized cheeses, veggies, and charcuterie. The crowd fills out around 6:00pm for happy hour every night. Read more · July 1, 2013

    Do get the cheese plate & kale. Avoid any dish that involves chicken liver (e.g., the gnocchi). Server seemed unconcerned when we said 1 of the chocolates on tasting plate tasted like soap.

  • Cyrus M.

    Brunch is amazing. the staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine selection to recommend the perfect glass based on your tastes and what you're in the mood for.

  • Juana M.

    Their front patio policy is ridiculous! We arrived at 5:30 and it was EMPTY however we couldn't stay without ordering food. Knowing the hospitality industry, it's upsetting!

    Fabulous brunch and delicious spicy bloody marys!

  • Eboni

    Two slices of bacon is all you will need. The bloody mary's aren't as flavorful or spicy as I like them but the Mimosas a free flowing!

    No table service on a Friday night- kind of a turnoff. Oh, and watch out for random terrible music.

    Great bottomless brunch, but be careful - they try to flip your table after about 1.5 hours.
