    Ambiance and cocktails were great but unfortunately the food was not good. The calamari appetizer was a bit salty with not much calamari . I also ordered Chilean sea bass dish which was over cooked and chewy. My friend ordered a pizza and she said it was very good. But I was very disappointed with my dish as it is a very delicate fish that needs to be cooked with care. Otherwise, the place has a nice vibe- for a younger crowd.

    I think here you pay for the ambiance. I went for brunch and the food wasn’t good and was highly overpriced, and the service matched the foods energy (not good and overpriced). The service baffled me especially since they add on 20% gratuity. The drinks were cool. Overall I wasn’t really happy with my experience and I probably wouldn’t go back.

    As always, we were pleased with our experience. We brought our aunt and uncle for their first time. Watching their excitement and seeing the pleasure on their faces was everything. I was awestruck by the flash fried lobster with caramel popcorn. Initially, I was skeptical because I couldn’t process how two of my favorite very different things could blend tastes…but they did and I am a fan. I’m sure we’ll be back soon and bring more people.

    If you like aesthetics in a restaurant I would highly recommend to come. if you want a full plate of food, I highly recommend that you don’t eat here. Gratuity is already added. They also will not make drinks that are not on the menu…. This place is only for aesthetics! 10/10 for that but comparing to other competitors it’s a 3/10.

    Went for brunch and it was an amazing experience. Although they were short staffed we wouldn’t have noticed. The manager stepped in to help his staff ensure everything ran smoothly. The host was amazing and kept us abreast of when to expect to be seated. Upon being seated the manager informed us he will be helping while they are short staffed. The food was good and the DJ kept the vibe amazing. Will def come back.

    Went there to celebrate a birthday. Table sucked. We were placed behind a wall next to the restroom. A terrible space to place patrons. Felt like we were cut off from the rest of the energy and vibe in the restaurant. Wr couldn’t see anyone and no one could really see us. Asked for another table and never got an answer. Was offered the special on long islands - never told they were more than the regular long islands (which was what we originally asked for). That part was 50% our fault for not asking but 50% the waitress fault for not advising. The waitress was nice though and the bread pudding was phenomenal. The lamb chops are a 6 on a scale of 1-10 and the honey salmon taste more like olive oil than honey. The popcorn they give you in the beginning is original and had marshmallows. I liked that. Overall I can tell that it’s the ambiance that brings in the crowd. It’s definitely a nice spot to gather with your girls or on a date. I probably won’t be back though. I would only recommend it because it’s a black business and others deserve to form their own opinion. Plus black businesses deserve support. Restaurants are a hard field to thrive in. Hopefully they get better with time…and move that table from that dreaded wall.

    I went for brunch. The food was good, but I don't like the way they do bottomless mimosas (and neither did the people who were sitting next to us) The price was comparable to any other place that does bottomless, however, they make individual get a separate container which I think is about 4-5 mimosas. No everyone is going to drink that many on their own so it's really a waste to the restaurant to make individual person purchase. If someone gets 2 on there own its cheaper for the guest and the restaurant is losing money so it makes more sense to just do refills on the jugs for 2 hours. We asked for syrup and our server never brought it. I think a manager ended up brining it so even though she was nice the service really wasn't that good. I will try again another time to see if there are any differences in service.
