The waiter never stopped by to see if we needed anything. We asked for water and had to get another staff member to help, because it was never brought out. The place is beautiful, but they need better staffing or at least more staffing.

We were late for reservation but were treated like we weren't. We opted to wait 30 minutes until brunch started. We tried some different menu items this time and what a treat! A little louder for us as we usually come earlier in the morning but tolerable. Will definitely return.

The food was great, the atmosphere is lovely, nice indoor / outdoor seating...but it was seriously LOUD...i could barely hear my friends conversation...next time i'd ask for a seat outside or in a quieter area...but still a lovely time.

Great food and nice outdoor patio ambience but service was very mediocre. Staff added 15% gratuity for a small party of four

Actually, the noise level was way too loud. There are windows that can be closed between the two main rooms and they should be. The customers were yelling throughout the evening and that one factor made an otherwise great experience not so good.

Perfect ambiance for a weekend brunch with great energy, food and bottomless mimosas. I would definitely be coming back.

Alex (our server) made the experience a delight. The ambiance was outstanding. The food was excellent except for the fig and prosciutto flatbread. The burger ordered at our table was the biggest surprise and best choice. The carrots and cauliflower were also a highlight. This just might be our favorite LA restaurant because of the overall experience.

Food is very good, every dish has rich, balanced taste. Even such a simple thing like flatbrad is cooked on the highest level. Service is excellent, attentive. I would recommend this restaurant to people who loves really good American food.

Pleasant brunch experience. Notified early that AM that breakfast menu ends at 10:30am, and brunch menu doesn’t start until 11am — so, seems there’s a 1/2 hr dead zone. But thankfully able to change our rez to 10am.

So the food that we order was stake and fried chicken, the stake compare to the price was super small and no dressing at all, the fried chicken was awful, it was so greasy and smelled and taste so bad, but, thanks from the management that he took it out of our bill, i am not worried about money but they could make it better.

Amazing atmosphere, great bar, excellent acoustic noise mitigation. Shishito peppers were ok but the wedge salad and the shrimp&grits and Pinot Grigio were great! I definitely look forward to going back.

Loved this place. Dinner with friends, we split an order of cheese biscuits, and two of us had an appetizer of divers scallops and shrimp and grits. Each was perfectly prepared. Our friend had the bolognese and said it was delish. We split the Nutella cake.

All together a wonderful experience with lovely service by our waiter and a charming decor.

I love this place. So open and airy. Great food options for everyone. It gets pretty noisy inside, so we just try to make it a point to sit outside.

It's a very nice and cozy place,but I didn't really enjoy the food! The menu didn't have variety, we were told the menu is seasonal ( we didn't know prior going there) and the items in the menu are quite pricey! Oh and the service fee is already included when they bring you the bill. My husband and I ended up spending $110 on food that we didn't get to enjoy.

Service was intolerable. So sorry to bother your as a patron. Food (soup, not gazpacho) was served cold. Staff determined to offer breakfast when we were clearly there for lunch. Restaurant had the audacity to add mandatory, and sneaky, gratuity for party of 2!?! First and last time for me!!

Well .... firstly the deco is pretty rad - late 60s vibe looks cool. Had some drinks & apps at bar which were great (deviled eggs and roasted olives)
We were seated inside which is just OK - feels a bit too much like a diner. I'd opt to be outside as it was much nicer (plenty of heat lamps).
Waitress was super nice but the food was just so-so. Maybe we tried the wrong things; hamachi tartare was ok, pork belly frites were a joke, scallops we're decent.
If there were a "maybe" recommend I'd chose that as other items might be better.

We checked out the breakfast buffet but it was nothing special. Breakfast was good albeit somewhat pricey. Vegetarian options were slim. Overall it was good but we know there are better options in the local area.
