    Fabulous food, top notch service. Can’t wait to go back. The pork tacos and shrimp tacos were outstanding. Very accommodating with our food allergies. Fun evening out with family at a new favorite. And love the neighborhood.

    Food could have been better, the bison burger I have was overly salty, should let the favors of the meat come out vs overly "saucing"

    Still trying items on this menu. Server was friendly, but a bit slow in discovering our needs. After we ordered, menus left on the table. Hope that the menu is expanded. Not many people were in the cafe on a Saturday evening--very strange. Good luck on your venture

    We chose this restaurant because of their beautiful Dog friendly patio. The problem is they were understaffed and our server completely forgot us outside. We actually had to go in and ask for our food, and later our bill.

    The Avocado toast was only medium, because the bread was too thick and it was not easy to cut, nor use your teeth. I loved the radishes and avocado. Fruit dish ok. The atmosphere was delightful outside.

    The food was fresh, tasty and great presentation. The service was very professional, timely, and very pleasant. We sat on the patio and it was a perfect fall morning. I forgot that this is a dog friendly patio. We will be bringing our fur babies to brunch the next time. I would highly recommend Emigration Cafe!

    We were off to a rocky start when they were out of the sparkling wine we ordered, then we ordered a Chardonnay, also out of that. Finally, on the 3rd try, we ordered wine they had. Sparkling wine came in a white wine glass. They only offer a few wines by the glass, no suggestions for alternatives, and the server didn’t know ahead and had to keep coming back to our table to let us know. Served our salad with our entrees instead of first. Pizza was undercooked and mushy. Burger and fries were good. Looks like this will be the 3rd restaurant in this space to fail.

    Everything was excellent; the food, service & ambiance. Our server was Kevin. He was attentive, very good at knowing the menu and he was very personable. Clinton the manager came over to check on us and was very personable too. Highly recommend.

    This restaurant is beautiful and in such a great location! Our server was excellent. We wanted to love this experience because of the atmosphere and good service but the food was completely underwhelming. The breakfast potatoes looked amazing but they tasted like stale cooking oil. Even the ketchup couldn’t over power that flavor. The breakfast sandwich had good flavor with the small amount of egg, bacon and lettuce on the inside but was overpowered by a dry, stale enormous roll it was placed on. It was disappointing! Our sever was great, efficient and a great sense of humor. I hope they will up their food game because this could be an amazing place!

    Understaffed, but the Server & Hostess did a great job helping each other. Great patio as well as inside decor. Food really tasty- but traditional house cut French Fries would be better (I think the ones served are from a bag).

    Their signature Manhattan tasted like cough syrup (and I really like manhattans). Wines by glass selection was not very good. Limited menu. Entrees we’re ok but not great. Pinsa (flat bread) was burned and lacked taste. Doubt we’d go back.

    Service was very slow. Server was the bartender as well as our server so we had to wait quite a while for food to come out and nachos were cold. No real uniforms for staff, server was in jeans, slightly unkempt looking. I would expect a stricter dress code for a more up scale, higher priced restaurant. Other server had long nails, not up to code in the serve safe codes. Food came out sporadically and not in any sort of order, nachos, salad and soup. Soup was cold by the time we got to it. No one came to check on us, refill drinks or water. I understand that staffing is a problem, our server was running back and forth and very gracious but staff was very unorganized. We will return as the salad was great, other food was not as good. I hope staffing issues can be resolved.
