What $40 got us for a recent Sunday brunch here: 1. Horrible service, despite being the only people in the place. Literally - when we arrived at noon, our group was the only party in the restaurant. Waiters all seemed as if they were recent lobotomy patients and were impolite to boot. 2. Inedible food. I ordered fried eggs - they arrived basically uncooked with various sides that tasted like cardboard. I had to finish off a friend's mediocre burger to avoid eating my left arm. 3. An insane bill for what was a booze-free brunch. I'm certain that brunch at the neighborhood soup kitchen would have been a better experience. This place was awful.

This bustling bistro can best be described as amateur hour. Even with a reservation, we waited over an hour to be seated and served a salad appetizer. Then, the main course never arrived. (The manager then said he "comped" the main course that was never served.) Service is horrible and the staff blamed the kitchen. Wine and salad over a $100. Nonprofessional to a fare-the-well. Take a pass or take a book. Not worth the wait.
