    Was there for Sunday Brunch. The background music that was being played was so loud it was difficult to carry on a conversation. Also a hamburger that was ordered medium rare was prepared well-done.

    We went on a Sunday morning for brunch. We didn’t really know a lot about this restaurant but decided to check it out. We were the only ones there at 10 AM. The air conditioner was on really high inside and it was freezing so we opted to sit outside. It had rained the night before so our feet were in puddles as there were no drains in the outside seating area. We sat under a speaker with music playing so loud that we couldn’t hear each other talk across the table. There were only three of us so it’s not like our party was loud. Our waitress was pleasant and I left her a good tip because I hate to stiff somebody but the service was pretty poor. We ordered coffee to start and had to ask for spoons, we had to ask for sugar. We had to ask for sugar again. Two out of the three of us ordered scrambled eggs and our dishes came out lukewarm to cold. At this time we were the only people in the restaurant. We waited 35 minutes from the time we ordered till the time we got our food. Our waitress never came back to check on anything. We had a very attentive busboy and he went and got us more coffee. I had to get up and go inside to ask for a knife to cut my entrée. Maybe they do better at other meals as They always seem to be packed when I drive by but I would not return there for brunch

    We had a fun Friday night experience here after going to the Van Gogh event. The hostesses were fabulous, the server Devon and staff were appropriately attentive and everyone enjoyed the dishes we got and shared around the table. It was a vibrant atmosphere and really, just fun! Beautiful view of the Suspension Bridge too.

    This place is always a hit. I like the sushi rolls and my husband tried something new each time. He raved over the lobster fried rice. Tail cooked perfectly. The service is good, drinks are great, atmosphere is awesome.

    Supply chain issues maybe, but they were “out of chicken?!?” However, the food we ordered was delicious. Waitress did not crack a smile the entire evening and at one point did not stop by our table for a 20 minute span. She had no answers for any of the questions we had about allergens in the menu items. She did make an effort to get some answers, but they were inconsistent with what the menu indicated. We are pretty forgiving of her lack of knowledge - especially given the state of the world and tremendous lack of staffing - but if you are going to be in the hospitality industry, you need to show at least a tiny bit of friendliness and enthusiasm? She had none of either. This was our first trip to the E+O location on the Banks - we have been to the Hyde Park location multiple times and have always had a great experience.

    I have never written a negative review, however I believe it’s important that the option to reserve seating on the patio be removed from this site as the hostess advised that they won’t reserve outside seating. I was embarrassed to have made a reservation that couldn’t be honored and stuck with two options neither were conducive. 1. Sit outside at a small table for two, and we’ll bring a third chair (3 people cannot comfortably sit at a table for two nor was that my reservation). 2. Sit inside at a table for four that can accommodate everyone but happens to be crammed along a raised platform table with a large party, and we would sit below them, nor was sitting indoors my reservation. The hostess asked, which would you prefer? (Neither) I took the table indoor, at least we could order, spend money, and eat comfortably! We go to that table and the chairs were filthy!!!!! We instead set at the bar. The sous chef was very professional, and working the kitchen staff in a way where you knew he took pride in serving good quality food to us patrons. The young sushi “makers” however were immature, looked at people and laughed hysterically and talked over the food they were preparing, they were on their phones, one even in his nose (thankfully they wore gloves when making the rolls no consolation) super rude, and unsanitary to watch! Suggestion: Stop catering to a table of 20 people who buy one bottle of champagne to split!! And take care of everyone, or size down your capacity. I will only go to the Hyde Park location! At least the manager would have acknowledged their error, vs. a hostess whispering to my server.

    I ordered the same dish at the Hyde Park location and it was prepared differently (soaked with soy sauce) and actually much better at the Hyde Park location. Service was also better at the Hyde Park one.

    Food was great. It was pre concert and we had a reservation. They tried to make us leave after less than an hour. Waitress said 90 minutes is max on game/concert day which makes sense. She apologized. Patrons should be warned up front about time limits though. This happened to us once at Hyde Park too. We wanted to order dessert but they “needed” the table. Bad policy. Make it 2 hours at least.

    The food was great but the music was so loud it was painful. The hostess couldn’t even hear me check in and sat us as a walk-in. They thought we no showed our reservation. The waitress could not hear us and we could not hear her or each other. It was like trying to eat in the middle of a super loud concert. Painful.
