Amazing restaurant. We had reservations for a group of nine for brunch and they had a table ready for us a soon as we arrived. Food was amazing. I ordered two meals (the portions are kind of small). It was a bit pricey but I was expecting that (not complaining). Clean and friendly. I will recommend this place to other people.

I recently visited for restaurant week and was extremely disappointed by the quality and taste of the food. For two ppl we paid 120ish, which is outrageous for what was served. If the food was great, or even good, the atmosphere would be able to justify it. I would honestly not recommend it, especially for restaurant week. The place wasnt even that busy either, which further amazed me as to how it was so difficult to serve better food. good: staff were very friendly, atmosphere was nice, the appetizers bad: the bread was hard and unpleasant to eat. many of the vinegar and oils were no even full. the wines they have on the main menu taste like wine thats been left sitting out. I had both a malbec twice, and a cab, all three were quite subpar. I could find a ten times better bottle for ten bucks at any wine/liquor store and enjoy it fresh. the appetizers were okay, i got the Charcuterie which was quite nice, but only had 8 thin slices of meat. the meat was decent, but both taste basically the same. I could go to trader joes/whole foods/dibruno bros and get any meats there and it would be as good or much much better. the soup (potato) was quite decent, but nothing spectacular. for second dish i got the pistachio flat bread. It was supposed to be pistachio, but there wasnt the slightest hint of any pistachio, just pesto. This, although not as advertised, was quite average. but probably the best i had there. for the entree we had the scallops as well as the mussel/pasta dish. Both were a complete waste. As we did not finish either. My pasta was not hot throughout, did they warm it up? i wonder. both entrees were quite extra salty.

Absolutely awful restaurant! We had a large party, seriously took about half of the restaurant, booked well in advance. They only had one bartender (who was seriously amazing, just really overworked) one waiter for probably 30 of us until we complained. Over an hour to just get drinks, food came out an interesting combination of burned on the outside and undercooked on the inside. Don't waste your time!

Stunningly poor in customer service from the Garces catering group. Spent 2.5 weeks working with Nick on a brunch for 50 people that fit our group's price point and at the last minute was told we'd need to pay $4000 minimum. So my time and theirs was wasted because Garces didn't do me the service of telling me early that my price point and # people involved wasn't going to get anywhere close to the minimum they didn't tell me about. Inconsiderate and didn't even apologize. I understand food & drink minimums, but be up front about it.

Used to be great, all you can it steak and frites (mostly why i go) but why keep that. The menu change was unimaginative and trite.

This place is out of this world! I road from Baltimore to eat there, and it was well worth it. Everything I put in my mouth was awesome. Not to mention that the staff were great. Very nice and accommodating. Going back really soon. No cheese steak for this guy!
