    Beautiful place. Service is ok. We went to the restaurant and my friend ordered a hamburger I had salmon, and my other 2 friends had fish. So they brought 3 plates and never brought the hamburger we kept asking for it. Almost towards the end they brought it out and omg McDonald's has better hamburgers than this place! So cheap! Plus it was burned. Cheap bread, cheap lettuce so disappointed for a supposedly upscale restaurant. Will not recommend this place.

    I wanted to like this place but it honestly was very subpar, the service was pretty slow even though there was barely anyone there. Spend your hard earned money somewhere else if you want a fine dining experience

    The food was delicious. It’s not a big menu but the offering is broad. The drink menu is not anything special. We were the second table in attendance when we arrived at 7pm on a Saturday. Despite that the service was initially very slow. Once the crowd picked up our server was much more attentive. We loved what we ordered- shrimp and grits for me and smothered chicken for my husband. Next time we will valet. We parked in the garage off Rusk. It took forever to get out.

    We had a reservation at 9:30pm, they took our orders and then came back and said sorry the kitchen is closed. No one informed us when making the reservations that the kitchen closes at 10pm. They shouldn’t have taken the orders if they wouldn’t serve us.

    The food was good, but seemed overpriced for what it was. They took off items from their online menu that we were interested in trying, and what was left was pretty ordinary. Atmosphere was good, our waitress was excellent, that doesn’t make up for the menu choices or quality.

    I cannot express how relieved I was that I didn't take the reviews to heart and went with my own mind to host a birthday brunch here! Joyce and Katrina were phenomenal! Our food did take longer than expected, however I did have a large party the staff had to accommodate! The DJ was great and the food was very much worth the wait! I'd definitely recommend and will be back!

    We had a reservation. Never came to our table to serve after we were seated. We waited 15 minutes, and then decided to leave. The menu is very plain. We went to Xochi which was up the road and had better ambiance and cuisine.

    I celebrated my birthday there with close friends. The food came out cold for everyone and when we sent it back it wasn’t remade but “heated up” The kicker was we all mainly ordered the same thing and sent it back but when the waitress brought back the food she didn’t know which plate to give to what person. I say all of that to say this.. I will not eat there again.

    Valet was a different price, ($20), then what was listed when booking the reservation. Service was super slow especially considering the restaurant wasn't busy and the bar and kitchen were closed by 10 even though online said the restaurant was open to midnight. Food was mediocre at best. Do not recommend, definitely won't be back.

    Had a reservation. For brunch Waited 10 minutes to be seated. Waited another 15 minutes to be greeted. Waited 20 minutes for a coffee refill. Tried to get a refill at the bar no luck. Watched the waitress look lost and confused the entire time. Food finally made it to the table. Very disappointing and cold. I usually don't get up find a refill or send my food back or write a review. But it was that bad and I feel the need to warn everyone. Also music was so loud we could barely have a conversation. I understand that the industry is still recovering and even grading on a curve this was sub par. Definitely off the list...

    Food was average. They were out of many items. The Flatbread was great, but the main dishes were disappointing. Staff was friendly and responsive. I'd give them a second try but there are so many other restaurants that I have to try first.

    Our waitress was lovely, but told us after an hour waiting for our appetizer it was the next ticket in line! She said dinner would be at least a 2 hour wait! They were not even full. Drinks were good, but we paid and left and went to another restaurant.

    Very unorganized. A host told us to go up to 23 then we were at the correct location downstairs. Once we went back down a hostess told us they were completely booked and there was not any available seating regardless of having a reservation booked. No kind of resolution was attempted to be made. The hostess just said we would be upset with her if we were seated and had to wait long.

    Poorly managed. Our waitress was very nice and had good customer service despite such a poorly managed restaurant. The bar took very long to make drinks and the kitchen took over an hour to bring all of our food at the same time but one of our apps was chips and salsa so not sure how we had to wait an hour just for chips and salsa. Our food was also cold. Again, the waitress does not make the food or drinks and she was very sweet so 5 stars for her only. The rest of the restaurant 1 star. They need to find a better way to manage the rush.

    This rooftop bar is a joke, no Wednesday wine, only thing nice is the veiw, the bar staff service trash, the price you pay for the drinks, experience should have been nicer, good to try once only if you have not experienced it yet. This is a dress how ever you want to kind of place.

    The food was delicious, but the service was not great. They were out of many items on the menu, it took a long time to get our food, and they were also out of some of the liquors at the bar. Dinner service had just begun, so it was strange that they were out of so many items already. It was a Saturday night, so you’d think they would have a plentiful stock. We will try it again on a different night just to see if things are better. I still want to try other dishes— it was just unfortunate that we went on a night that so many things were out of stock.

    Made reservations for my husband and I for roof top. When I arrived. We were told that the restaurant was separate from the rooftop . When we got to the rooftop. There was nowhere to sit, the bar was packed and people standing everywhere. When we went back downstairs, we sat at the bar for 45 minutes and no one greeted us at all. Horrible customer service. Will not spend another dime here .

    I had never been to the restaurant, invited several friends. The restaurant was out of 3 or its 5 apps, and several of the main entrée items that we all were excited about. The service was super slow, 30 minutes to get a drink, almost an hour to get the food and the food was not that good as it was kind of lukewarm. Not a good experience for a first visit. Will not return.
