    The food and service was phenomenal! Loved coming here for brunch. Our server, Avery was super cool and so nice. She made it a wonderful experience, and gave great recommendations of the menu.

    Good food! Was nice for a casual and easy date night dinner, but don’t think I’ll find myself going out of the way to go or take people.

    The place is very beautiful and nice , however it’s very loud to the point where you can’t have a conversation. The servers are very friendly but they take a very long time to come to you and serve you .

    On a 90 degree day in the summer there was barely any air conditioning, ordered chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream with the ice cream all melted on the cake, the waitress said she’d bring ice cream and apologized for it being melted and to my dismay brought out again melted ice cream in a metal container that’s supposed to be for ketchup - embarrassing to say the least and incredibly stingy. To top it off, our waitress didn’t even ask us if we wanted anything else after the entire table finished their meals, and simply gave us the check. Subpar food, awful service, and incredibly uncomfortable atmosphere due to the lack of air conditioning.
