    We waited over an hour for our food. Most of our food arrived cold. The manager and server did not have any sense of urgency to correct this after being notified twice. They added 20% grat for 6 people and never notified us it was on the bill. It may have been on the menu, but we did not notice it. They don't care decaf coffee?!?! A breakfast place, with no decaf... hmmm... 0/10 do not recommend.

    Food is good, drinks are good, vibe is good, location is fine (parking is annoying, and this is at the end of the neighborhood so it’s far from other hangouts), but the service needs some work. Staff is friendly and professional but very, very slow. We were at our table for half an hour before a waitress came by and there for another 30 mins before food showed up; drinks showed up 20 mins after that. I’d go back with hopes that they’re properly staffed for the day.

    Uptown Yolk is a brunch paradise, consistently delivering an exceptional dining experience that has made it my go-to spot. Every visit is a delight, with no detail overlooked, ensuring a perfect meal every time. Navigating street parking can be a challenge, so I recommend using the garage next door for convenience. To secure a spot in this bustling brunch haven, especially on weekends, making a reservation is wise and highly recommended. The menu is a treasure trove of brunch classics, but the pancakes, Tennessee fries, and chicken wings are standout choices that I highly recommend. Each dish is crafted to perfection, offering a taste of culinary excellence that keeps me coming back for more. The atmosphere at Uptown Yolk is vibrant and welcoming, making it an ideal locale for any occasion, from casual meet-ups to celebratory gatherings. The lively vibe complements the delectable fare, creating an enjoyable and unforgettable dining experience. In summary, Uptown Yolk is a stellar brunch destination where delightful food, lively ambiance, and attentive service converge to create a flawless dining experience. It's a place where every visit is a joy, cementing its status as a must-visit spot for brunch aficionados.

    Service was pretty non-existent. We even saw one employee walk out and another sitting at the bar, eating her food in between long wait times of serving guests. They were out of several things with no offer of alternatives (how do you run out of hot chocolate among other items) and take 20 minutes to bring a soft drink to the table. The restaurant was not at all busy when we went (Saturday at 12:15) and it took over thirty minutes for our food to be served. Our food was good but does not excuse the poor service. I really wanted to like this restaurant and support the owners so this experience was disappointing.

    Uptown Yolk has a nice relaxed vibe offering a twist on traditional southern cuisine favorites. The beverages were unique and tasty as well. Service was rather slow with a few hiccups due to short staffing challenges on Saturday but overall everything worked out well.

    The hostess was dismissive and rude immediately upon arrival, as if my guest and I were interrupting her breakfast at the host stand. Also, when asked if we could change tables from a two-top to a different two-top, she refused, and her excuse was that the requested table was reserved when I was also seated with a reservation I had made more than two weeks in advance. Despite the initial poor experience, the food runner and waitress were so kind, the food came out quickly, and the ambiance was a great.

    First visit here for mid-week breakfast. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Food was bit underwhelming. Had the Benny and though it was good tasting, felt a bit tiny and lack presentation (seemed like the ingredients looked like they came from packaged meat for example). The creamer for our coffee was sour - they did react swiftly to that and gave us fresh creamer, coffee, and an apology. Would visit again though.
