    This used to be such a distinctive and elegant place, with a wonderful menu and an amazing wine list. This has now turned into a burger and pizza place, with no table service, poorly trained staff, and atrocious logistics. It's loud, it takes forever to order anything from the bar, and even longer to have food brought to your table: We waited, after having ordered and paid, 40 minutes for a burger and pizza. They served a 10" pizza in an 8" plate...and no cutlery! Go try and cut that!! Coffee was served with no spoon and no sugar. When we decided to have a 2nd drink, it took us 15 minutes to order. Only +, they were friendly and trying to help, but clearly their new format is a huge mess! We're definitely never going back there.

    The decor really sets the scene. The tables are a little squished in meaning waiters and customers are constantly squeezing past. The food was ok. Toast was slightly burnt poached eggs were overcooked. Very disappointed that on the website it says that espresso martini’s are part of the bottomless brunch yet when you get there you’re told oh yeah we’ve taken it off the menu just not the website. The staff seemed not too fussed about that. We had only chosen the location because of the espresso martini’s being included. Probably wouldn’t select for a bottomless brunch again. I feel other venues in the area do a better job. I think if you remove someone from a menu make sure the website is updated and staff shouldn’t act so casual about knowing it’s an issue.

    The place was a mess. It was definitely more of a bar than a restaurant. There was no one there to greet us when we arrived. We then had to hunt down an employee who didn't know where we were to be seated. The service was non-existent.

    Bang average bar food. Used to be a nice restaurant so was expecting something a little different.

    The food was great and so was our server. We had the bottomless brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you :)

    Didn't stay as their Google menu said they do Sunday roasts but they haven't done then for 5 months! We normally love this place for a drink.
