Brunch was ok although my creme brûlée French toast was really good. Coffee was cold. Service was off. Asked if we wanted cream and sugar. Shouldn't you just bring it? No spoons to stir. Used my knife. Asked for refills. Thank God it wasn't crowded...More

Six of us had lunch, 4 adults and 2 children. We gave our party's name to the hostess and were told it would be about 10 min. She gave our table to another party and her response was that she's not good with remembering faces....More
