                                                              We loved the entire experience. The pumpkin bread appetizer was out of this world. We did appetizers as if we were at a tapas place because so many of them were interesting. We were happy we did. The smoky onion dip was also excellent. We were happy with the taste, presentation ad service. Would love to return one day

The food was great! Highly recommend the carbonara cauliflower.. sooo good! We got the market fish - some kind of Bass from Colorado and that was cooked perfectly with so much flavor!

Short rib was perfectly cooked and the brussel sprouts were perfectly roasted. Bread pudding for dessert was too sweet, but that is really my only critique. Would definitely come back.

                                                              Was a very overpriced Mother’s Day brunch with a lack of service. And food was far from amazing or worth the asked price. I am sure the regular menu has a lot of potential, and most likely is great, however this was not that.

We each had our favorites - cheese blintzes, pumpkin bread with burrata cheese on top, the short ribs... Service was perfect. We thought the brunch was a great value for the price paid.

                                                              Disappointed in the Mother’s Day brunch at $40 per person. The only egg option was imitation scrambled egg and was really hoping for some kind of fresh made egg bar for omelets or fried. Or at least eggs Benedict like their usual brunch menu. Felt overall the value wasn’t worth it. Also no special drinks for moms day and definitely none included. Even the mimosas were $10.25 each! Crazy!

                                                              I took my guests for mothers day hoping to have oysters… however what was not explained or printed snyyehwre on OpenTable was that it was buffet brunch. The server never quoted the actual price per person so we were left guessing. The good news is that the food was delicious and mostly off the menu so you cold try everything without committing to one dish- except oysters … Not much desserts other than mini cupcskes.. glad I gifted chococalet covered strawberries to the moms so we had that to finished the meal. Our server was meh… ok . Not terrible but not notable either. Party of 6 + 2 bottles of champagne, 2 teas, and buffet- about 75.00 pp. server never offered coffee- I had a gift card that brought me to make the reservation there- would I goback? I don’t live close by so. Probably would nt drive back to go there but if I’m the hood might stop in… Unfortunately Lots of homeless people around the. Location dis not allow for our teenagers to walk around while the adults finished up. 7 out of 10 with all the point going to the food.

                                                              It was Mother's Day brunch. I can understand it's a special day buffet, but a bit overpriced compared to value that was paid. Foods were overall great, but the variety of the brunch was a bit less than expected. I'd try again only as a la cart. And even though it's a brunch, only one type of coffee was available. $12 orange juice was a bit too much.

Even though the restaurant was only half full when we arrived, they refused our request to be seated elsewhere. The general consensus was the food was only "alright", burgers were salty, salad and pork very "one note". Waiter was good though. None of us would go back again.

We loved the croquettes, cauliflower carbonara, short ribs. Meat balls were dry and the onion dip average. Service was good. The decor was spare, hard, noisy and not particularly comfortable. The sun was brutal, shades not up to the job. And the bathroom floor looked like it hadn't been mopped in weeks. How does this happen?

                                                              Unfortunately the server made a mistake on our order so one of the four meals did not come out with the rest. When her meal made it, it was bland and seemed as though it was rushed. Also, we chose Pago on Main for brunch to enjoy cocktails as well, but for some reason no cocktails were available on the Sunday we were there. We will be back because we have previous good experiences there, but this one was meh. Also, staff didn’t seem overly concerned that one of the four diners basically watched us eat and then had to eat alone. They were apologetic, but “sorry” was all they offered. Given that the table was already sad about no cocktails, they should have read that the day was less than as wonderful as we would have hoped.

                                                              Wonderful place! Some great brunch offerings. Would have appreciated perhaps an egg offering other than just scrambled NN on the buffet. Service was excellent! Great coffee, mimosas and food. Auto 20% gratuity for a party of 3 was odd, but that is what I would tip anyway, so not a big deal. Would love to come back for dinner sometime!

                                                              We had great appetizers to start. The sourdough, the game meatballs and the smoked onion dip. Small portion for the onion dip but very good. Highly recommend. I got a salad as an entree and it didn’t seem like it had any dressing so I asked for more. Flavor was good though but chicken, pork, and short rib entree were all wonderful. Service wasn’t fantastic but not bad either. Just seemed like the server didn’t know much about the menu and wasn’t very excited about it. Drinks and wine was reasonably priced and very good which was appreciated in todays inflated market. Will definitely go back!

The restaurant was very noisy, the seating wasn’t exactly what I would call comfortable and the sun was shining in our faces the whole time. It was enjoyable but not quite as good as I expected it to be. Maybe it was just that location. I’ll have to try the 9th and 9th location before deciding on how I feel about it.
