It’s always a fun vibe going for brunch. I love it
Delicious food but limited menu. The ambience is a lot of fun and the people are so nice! Only down side was the noise level with the music, hard to talk so not a great place to catch up with friends but a good time for partying!
Great Service, ultra Friendly hostess and waitstaff. Made us feel welcome.
Fantastic brunch!!! Come here for high energy and a truly crispy chicken sandwich!
Truffle fries are fire!
The DJ and music was on point! Food, drinks, and service was good. Will most likely return with a bigger group next time.
Great place great food! Would recommend to family and friends.
Always such a fun place if you love 90s hip hop! Great service and the food is delicious! Can’t wait to go back.
It’s always a good time whenever I go, the staff is amazing.
This was everything great food great vibes great people … but mostly exceptional staff!! They made sure we had the most memorable experience and for that I will forever be a loyal patron. The manager is so freaking beautiful inside and out.
Amazing music and atmosphere. Service was excellent and food was on point.
Loved the environment and the servers were so nice!! We had a great time!
We came to celebrate a birthday and had the best time ever! It's definitely a turn up spot where you can add extra Bday things like a sign, sparklers, dessert and champagne. The music was awesome and the staff is beyond nice and accommodating. I highly recommend for a brunch.
The staff are great and very attentive coupled with the food and ambiance makes it a fun place to dine.
Thank you to the general manager, Emmy and my server Angelica, Angelique. I know your going to get upset but I hope I was close to getting your name right.
Mary, our server, was so warm & welcoming. Mary added to the ambiance by sprinkling her spunky personality into each interaction we had. It’s safe to say I’ll be back.
Awesome vibes with great music. Staff is friendly and want you to have a great time. The bellini pitchers were quite small and only served one round of drinks for 4 people. I would’ve preferred a bottomless price for drinks.
Was a great time with awesome food.
It was wonderful. Love it and want more of it!
Dope spot for Sunday brunch. Food was very good. Service was great. Also DJ was on point and even though there's a DJ it's not too loud that you can't hear people talk to you unlike other places in the City.
It was LIT!
Emma was the best hostess. Everyone was so polite and the vibe was the best. DJ played great music, highly recommend for brunch!
Great service and the food is as amazing as good as well! Definitely come here for brunch and opt for the spiked mimosas and the chicken and waffles ! Will be returning as soon as possible!
My cousins and I had such a great time here! The music was great, the people were great, the server we had checked on us to make sure it wasn’t too “rowdy” for us (which is definitely wasn’t). The atmosphere was amazing! Definitely a great birthday brunch spot! We’ll definitely be coming back here!!
Great service and food! Awesome music!
Great place for brunch if you love listening to music. The vibe was nice, multiple selections for food and the mimosas were strong.
First time here for brunch. Turned into a party around noon! Manager was amazing and customer service was great. There was something in our mimosa glass and she replaced it and gave us a complimentary shot. Dj was amazing and kept the hits going non stop! I had the chicken sandwich which was solid but the truffle Mac and cheese was the true winner. If I’m back in NY, I’d definitely come back again
Made reservations here for my brother's birthday, not a huge celebration but there were 4 of us. My brother and his friend arrived over 30 minutes late, but thankfully tables weren't packed and the host/ bartender kept my boyfriend and I occupied at the bar with no extra rush to get our reservation going. We weren't kicked out either. They were awesome! It was a Saturday night and we had a table right near the DJ by the pit. We legit stayed there all night and when we left there was a line to get in! Loved the experience, thanks crew! Much love.
Surprisingly good food. They must have a 5 star chef back there!
It was my cousins Birthday
1st of all the customer service was like No other!!!
The host was Very accommodating Mary aka Ginger the waitress was fantastic and busy at the same damn time!
Food was good the parade was awesome and a great price!
At I wouldn’t have changed anything
It was an amazing time, food was great with a great menu choice, drinks were so good and reasonably priced special when you get the pitcher for brunch. Definitely will be back soon
Truly one of my favorite brunch spots. Great music/dj! Wonderful bellinis and food. Def do it!
Just a simple brunch with friends. It was an excellent time.
I brought my son and my father here to celebrate Father’s Day and we all immensely enjoyed every aspect of the experience. After being greeted warmly by Emmy, who sat us at a large, lovely table, we were waited on by the cheerful, attentive and generally delightful Mary. The food was outstanding - each of us ordered different dishes (steak and huevos, Essex burger and crispy chicken sandwich) and all of us devoured every bite. The table ordered the Stanton Spritzer cocktails and drank down multiples of those as well. The atmosphere was cool and lively, and it quickly became clear why this has become a mainstay destination of the LES. Highest possible recommendation here, I’m certain you won’t be disappointed either!
Ambience was strange with disco balls next to the leather tufted furniture. Food was cold when we received it and waitress didn't check in with us for drink refills. Also the soda tasted terrible. The carbonation was flat and the lines needed to be washed.
I use to go here a lot and the vibe is different now. The drinks were pricey and weak unfortunately. My season of coming here is over!
Such a great vibe, great music if you are into hip pop, dance hall, mimosa brunch vibes. Loved celebrating my birthday there and the price was not bad either !! The food was pretty good and the waiter was so nice. Such a great experience 💛
One of New York City's classic restaurants. From the street front, you have no idea what a wonderful experience awaits you inside.
If you’re visiting NYC make sure you come to this place. The manager was super friendly when our table time was up she reserved seats for us at the bar so we can continue enjoying the music and our drinks. Food was excellent , vibe was a 10 , if you like throw back RnB and hip hop come here ! Loved it . Oh and I think our servers name was Angela ? Dark hair from Florida she was awesome ! Also order the French toast and Mac n Cheese ‘
The staff was very rude. They sat my cousin and I (two females) in the middle of a group(12-15) drunk college dudes. We asked to be moved and they sat us at the bar in which the men found their way to us . It was very uncomfortable. The waistresses are nasty and rude. Over it never coming back. It’s dark and dirty.
Vibe was nice but the food quality wasn’t the best.
