    Food was cold and late. Bread was hard and soggy on the bottom. Server was very nice. Maybe just struggles in the kitchen.

    My wife order salad, it doesn’t have any taste at all. When we complain about the taste to our server, she doesn’t even say a single word. She ignored us. Again a lady probably supervisor, walk around and ask every customer. So when she comes to our table, we ask her to bring a dressing at least if we can get a better taste. She totally forget. Never show up. The music was so noisy. I don’t think we made a good choice for dinner. I feel like we are having our dinner on the street.

    Went here for a Father’s Day dinner. Service was slow, food took an hour+ for 3 people. Server never asked if we needed anything, like more drinks, as we sat and waited. My salmon was dry and over cooked, and ladled with soy sauce/salt! Server also had a hard time knowing which items were safe for my husband to consume as he’s on a gluten free diet. They have table top check out devices - which we didn’t know we were to use for checkout. Then we had an extra entree on our bill which the server had a hard time removing. You’ll have to drag us back to this place again, that we used to once enjoy dining at!

    Went for Fathers’ Day. Total disappointment. Waited over an hour to get food order. Food was cold when delivered. One order was not what was ordered. No one came to explain or apologize for the long delay until we were ready to leave. The manager came over and apologized and took some off the bill. We have gone there many times; this is the first time it has been such a disaster. So we will try again. Happy to see printed menus again.

    It wasn’t great. Wont be returning… (1) We waited 10 mins to be greeted by one of the bartenders, who must have noticed we were not being helped, & took our order in lieu of a server. (2) It was freezing inside and the music was louder than I usually like so I asked to be moved outside. We were then seated in front of the server station, and therefore could see and hear their conversations and goings ons. (3) We ordered the salmon slider appetizer, and after waiting a while to receive them, they were dropped on the floor 10 feet away from our table. Our server flailed their hands around and the young man carrying the tray was caught off guard. Someone shrieked from being started and all the patrons looked as if something horrific had just happened. Perhaps not having everyone hang out there would be smart. (4) Also, where is the manager?? It’s Sunday brunch on Father’s Day — a good day to be catching up on admin work in the back instead of keeping an eye on the team. (5) When we finally do get our appetizer, another 15 min later, it consisted of 2 very small sliders on King’s Hawaiian rolls that I probably could have made myself for 1/3 the price and 3x the size. The very extra large side of chips were good, though, and since I was hungry and an hour had gone by at that point, I would have eaten mostly anything. (5) Entrees took another century to get to us, and while the server apologized on behalf of the kitchen, we were already done with this place and made our minds up that we’d never be returning. We go to different brunch spots every Sunday, and frequently return to our favorites. The manager came out at the very end of the meal to apologize and comp our appetizer, but that should have been a given, as the first one was dropped and we waited 60+ minutes for the replacement. Positives? My crab Benedict was good, although I was starving, so not sure if that’s a fair evaluation. Servers were polite, but overall service was awful.

    The waitress was absolutely clueless and even admitted it to us. She started by trying to show us how to read the menu which I am pretty sure we could handle. We asked a few simple questions like what the market fish was that evening. She did not know and had to go ask. When she can back and told us it was snapper, but she did not know how it was prepared. I asked if the salmon was farm raised or wild. Again no clue and disappeared for another ten minutes. When she came back, she told us it was neither…hysterical! Must have been domesticated😂 Shortly there after she was gone, and we got a new server who did okay. We never said a word and had some great laughs. The music was too loud and awful, but the food was good.

    The hubby and I went there for date night--a special promotion where we pick one app, two entrees, and get a bread pudding to split for dessert. What a great promotion! The meatball app was good, but nothing exciting. But the entrees of steak and sushi were brought out on a cutting board for us to split. It was our own informal surf and turf. Amazing! And the bread pudding was big enough for three people, especially with a shot of Bailey's Irish Cream over the top. YUM! Initially, we were put off by the loud and energetic music. But the manager, Trevor, stopped by and turned down the music to the perfect level. Our wait staff was attentive without being clinging. A magnificent night was had by all!

    Overpriced for what it was. Maybe the trendy Cherry Creek location was the reason. Sliders, a salad, lettuce wraps a sushi roll and 4 drinks on hop hour we’re $170 and can’t say there was anything special about any of them. Disappointed.

    Really enjoyed happy hour our on the patio. Great food and good prices. Ambience would have been great, too, except for the women next to us who were yelling, cackling and just being rude, in general. Our server was very professional and the server she was training was trying very hard to learn and please the customers.

    The server was so sweet and great. None of this was his fault and the poor guy was getting ripped into by another table. All of our food by the time we got it was cold and very disappointing for the price. I’m not usually one to complain but it’s a very expensive place which we don’t do often so to have all cold food, steak that was a hockey puck, and things just overall not very good was disappointing. The server was stretched way too thin and we heard complaints from almost every table around us. I felt SO bad for him. Not his fault at all and he handled it amazingly. We won’t be returning just due to feeling like we didn’t get our moneys worth at all. May have just been a bad night but we don’t go to places like that often so it was very disappointing.

    Food was ok. I had the crab eggs Benedict and there was about 1 Tablespoon of crab and it didn’t taste very fresh, but they met a couple other requests. The noise was the problem. You could hardly hold a conversation among the three of us at the table. Yes, their were lots of people but the music was deafening. Totally made the experience unpleasant.
