    The service is terrible and they changed the menu so the food is not nearly as good ad it was, rendering this place no longer worth it at all. Too bad,..

    If it's a nice day, definitely sit in the back garden. The brunch menu has some good options & the extra $4 is worth the included 2 cocktails.
