Had Sunday brunch and as always, the food was outstanding as we have come to expect. 411 West is always consistent - with excellent quality. It is always a treat to come to a restaurant which consistently meets and exceeds expectations !

Overall was a good experience. We still miss some of the menu items that have been replaced but understand you have to change it up sometime.

Love 411. Loved 518 more. Please consider bringing back the Parmesan crusted filet. Chicken Marsala is wonderful. Caesar salad with traditional dressing is preferred. :)
