We got there 15 minutes after our reservation but staff was very friendly. They had the drinks coming continuously just like we like them. We took full advantage of the bottomless mimosas. The food was also very good

Definitely a hot spot in East Village. Our reservation was at 11:15, the only time that was available a week in advance. We arrived to a very active packed house, and were promptly taken to the upper level in the very back, right by the...More

The service was absolutely horrible from start to finish. Walked in assuming I would be seated for a friend's brunch (which had begun 10 minutes prior) but I was told I had to wait for the whole party to arrive. When asking the hostess if...More
