Pretty good value and excellent selection for bottomless dining. Great value for sangria for only $3.22 with bottomless dining. We tried about 70% of the options and everything was quite delicious. Service was prompt, courteous, attentive, and professional. The basically delicious was, indeed, delicious and smooth; this drink could get you in trouble; it would have been even better if it was the happy hour price since we were there during the happy hour time. Overall, great service, food, and selection. We will definitely be returning.

We're repeat customers. Love their all u can eat brunch! Their dishes are tapas style. Small plates, tons of sweet or savory options, including vegetarian. Great value for a small price.

We sat outdoors, first time visiting since pandemic. Made our reservation through open table, greeted by hostess outside. They have a good system going, i felt safe. Food took a little longer than usual but that was expected. Overall very pleased.

The unlimited brunch special is not worth it. The food is prepared so quickly there is very little attention to detail. The flavors were underwhelming but the presentation was decent. If you eat your focus more on so entrées, you might get a better experience.

Food was great but the service was terrible. Our table and chairs were wet so we asked if they can take care of it or if we can have another table that's not wet. Hostess moved us to another table that was also wet and the chairs were wet as well. We had to wipe them down with the cloth napkins that came with our utensils as the hostess left and there was no one else to help. The manager showed up and told us we can't sit there and had to go back to another table since that table was for 8 people and he needed it. So we asked again to have someone wipe down the chairs and tables because they are wet. He sent someone who only wiped the table with disinfectant wipes and left the chairs wet. We used the cloth napkins again to do it ourselves. The table we were moved from was given to a group of 6 not 8 and our table was for 6 people as well so not sure why they moved us. After the waitress was acting strange and a lot of our food was not brought out to us and we had to reorder ( we got the bottomless brunch). She came back to check on us and after a few times he asked us if we are ready for the check. At this point it was the 4th time they didn't bring few items and I told her we are still waiting for some food that we ordered a while ago including a waffle. She then pointed to a bit of a leftover waffle someone else was eating before we ordered the other wan and said " "This is a waffle, it was delivered". I explained again and we ordered with no maple syrup and they brought it out 15 min later with maple syrup on top and on the side. We had the waffle remade and left right after. I have to say again that the food was awesome but they kinda ruined my bday experience with the bad service.

Service was ok. The menu surprised us since it seems to favor an all you can eat choice which was excessive to us. Food choice limited and more of a munchie group type of thing. Very few vegetarian or vegan options.

I was a little disappointed with the check in process. I had a rsvp for outdoor seating and was told only 2 tables were available that were in a high traffic area. It wasn’t until we asked if an empty table was available did they realize there were more tables outside that were available.

Food not as good as I recall from earlier this year - not sure if it’s due to the change due to Covid. Not sure I’ll go back for the food. But service was excellent and they were constantly ensuring we were okay. I brought my pup and ordered him a burger plate which he devoured. It was so nice that he could have his dinner with us. Thank you!
