I love everything about this place. The food (brunch or dinner), the staff, and especially the music! The only problem is that I don’t get to go often enough!

Wonderful atmosphere, fantastic music and delicious food. This restaurant is couple and adult children friendly. I wouldn’t take small children here. On music nights and days it is full of joyful noise which makes visiting difficult, but why would you want to talk when you...More

The food was OK, the drinks were average, but the atmosphere was great due to quality live music (A La Mode) that was tasteful, but not too loud!

Great music, lively environment, wonderful service, bottomless mimosas, and yummy food. Highly recommend checking this place out, especially if you’re looking for great music. I had brunch, which was delicious, fast, and reasonably priced.
