Brunch Ratings and Reviews

The food was very tasty, but the service was a bit slow. The most disturbing part of the experience was watching the manager cough into her hands, grab menus, and then seat us with said menus. I also saw her cough into her hand and then fill up someone's water cup. That is not something you want to see while eating. She should be a better role model for her staff.

I've been to Brunch before and wanted to go back. The wait is a little long if you don't make reservations so make sure to do that. The food is excellent and so are the bloody mary's. I highly recommend this place.

Really disappointed in the service and the food, I'm sorry to say. We waited more than a half hour for our food, with our server saying she would check on the food but never reporting back. I finally tracked down the manager who said "yeah, we're running about 25 minutes today. A large party ordered before you." Really? I would've expected apologies sooner and proactively, and an offer of oj or a roll or something! My chicken sausage arrived dry and cold. The manager replaced them and then returned often to check on us. But it was sort of too late. Just not that special.

Very disappointing. We were meeting for a casual family Sunday brunch. We reserved a table for 6 and were put at a table for 5. Table was so wobbly that our drinks were spilling. We were told that it couldn't be fixed and there were no other tables available. Food was mediocre at best. Ordered sticky buns that were burnt. They forgot our 9 year olds meal. Which meant the 7 and 11 year olds were done before his food showed up. No apologies. No considerations offered. If your name is Brunch you should try to get that

The food and wait service was excellent but I cannot say the same for the host staff. We were five old friends reuniting to see a friend who recently lost his leg. We picked the spot because of its elevator for wheelchair access. Unfortunately the host treated the use of the elevator like an unnecessary intrusion. As we were leaving, we asked the host if she would take a quick picture of our group (It was not particularly busy at the time). She responded by saying that she would charge three dollars. I waited a moment to see the smile indicating that she was just kidding, but it never came. Despite the really great food, I won't be back.

To be clear, I did not have brunch. My partner and I walked out before we were served.
The reservations process was a breeze - after all, this is Opentable.
We arrived a few minutes late for an 11:30a reservation. As I approached the host stand the hostess told everyone to "just get back" we need "to clear the waitlist". I gave the host my name and stepped to the side. At 1136 I received a txt acknowledging my arrival and saying my table was ready.
They then started to seat guests - a few who arrived ahead of us, some who arrived after us. At 11:55 I asked if we were any closer to being seated. The hostess saw that we had been skipped and took us to a table. This would have completely rectified the situation if a) the table had not been one of multiple tables sitting visibly available since we arrived and b) anyone had shown up to actually wait on us. At 12:15p a server finally came with water. I looked at my partner and we decided to move on.

Cute place for brunch! It was awesome that they take reservations! Great food and service. They managed to put interesting combinations together and it worked well! Something for every taste. The space was small so tables were packed in to maximize seating, other than that no complaints.

We really love it here - it's our go-to spot. During our latest visit, Josh, came to our table to clear our dishes (he normally manages the bar) just to say hi to our friends and us. The food is always very good/satisfying, at a reasonable price. Staff is very friendly (esp. Josh) and welcoming, and the whole restaurant is well-lit with sunlights.

Our server was great. Our appetizer came after our entrees so the manager comped it which was a nice gesture. The mimosas contained freshly squeezed orange juice which was a nice touch and the reason our bill was so high (we had several). The prices were very reasonable and the quantities are generous.

They should be more respectful of reservations. I use Open Table to ensure that my party will be seated on time. Brunch was packed and they couldn't get a clear table for our party. On weekends when they know there will be lots of people, they should be more realistic about scheduling reservations.

This place was good, but nothing special. We ordered a cinnamon roll to start - it's huge and came out in a skillet, but was stone cold. Only the icing was warm (like they heated it up and poured it over). It was also slightly stale.
I ordered the smoked salmon Benedict and my fiancé got the breakfast burrito. Also, nothing to write home about. Good, but could get it anywhere.
Overall, I didn't feel like I got value out of our $40+ tab, especially considering we didn't order any alcohol. Two breakfasts and coffees shouldn't cost that much, especially when it was all completely mediocre.

Great breakfast place! Not much you can do to ruin breakfast so you have to be creative to be different . The skillet dishes and the flavor of the food was noteworthy. Good, delicious breads and pastries
Friendly, efficient service
