Really great food and once we were seated the food came out quickly. However, since we had five people and this is a very tiny restaurant, we had quite a wait for brunch. Parties with four or less got seated very quickly.

There was an interesting variety of menu items to choose from, and we all had very different selections. The staff was friendly and the food came promptly. They pleasantly accommodated dietary preferences. The restaurant is not fancy, or elegantly appointed but it is small. It did hit the spot for a casual visit with friends. The food was good.

Went to this over-hyped eatery with a local friend. Food was bland and to be honest just weird. Would not recommend.

After our first visit, we were very impressed with the food -- original offerings prepared with a flair. The atmosphere and staff however, began to wear a little thin. Customers should not be aware that employees have lives packed with drama and are dealing with complex social/emotional issues. This place may be have the makings for a reality show but for fine dining, I think we'll move on.

We ate dinner here while in the area from out of town, because we saw all the great reviews on Trip Advisor and my wife is vegetarian.

(The Good):
-Food was fresh and tasted good.
-Friendly staff

(The Bad):
- Very limited menu selection (a dozen choices or less)
- Very limited seating (this is a tiny place in a run-down strip mall) - seats around 15 - 20 people max in whole restaurant.
- Way Way overpriced
- Rough area of town
- Didn't really give an impression of being very clean

Overall thoughts: Good idea and concept but very limited menu choices, high prices and cramped seating area have me thinking we won't return until some changes occur.
