Went for brunch today. Beautiful space in a great location. However, the food is very mediocre for what you are paying. Fun place for bottomless drinks, but if you just want food, go somewhere else.

The atmosphere here is really great. Did not love how they kept dimming the lights. The food was really good and so were the drinks. Servers were very nice but not attentive enough. Had to wait long for water and wine refills.

we had a brunch yesterday. Usual service reasonable food but a bit pricey. The place is very busy at lunch time, so the servers are overwhelmed. The deco is modern style, more geared to millennial.
