    We did all you can eat and drink. The food was amazing but the service was not worth the 20% gratuity that was automatically added to our bill.

    We went for bottomless brunch food and drinks. Food was okay. They give very small portions from the minute you order. Wait times were 10-15 minutes for something as simple as birria or ceviche, something that’s already pre made, and longer for things they cook like pancakes and French toast. There were too many inconsistencies when they brought out the food. Some of our French toast plates came with butter and syrup included, others had to ask for some to be brought. Some plates included eggs, others forgotten completely. They were maybe 2 or 3 other parties aside from us. It was not busy but staff still seemed unorganized.

    We went for Mother’s Day, we decided to do the bottomless food for $30 dlls and they charge you automatically 20% for the tip (when were 4 of us) We’ve been here before, but this time the service was not that great, when we got there, it was 10am and there was barely a lot of people, so they were not that busy at the beginning , the first time they took our order right away, but after that it seems that they forgot about us. The food was good but the service was not that great as it used to be (hopefully it was just this time & maybe they were just short on staff and that’s why they were taking forever to take our order). But we left a little bit disappointed.
