I've been here a few times and every time was JUST OK- except for my most recent visit on Saturday night. Because we live around the block, we figured we would check Uptown out before heading more downtown. We were a group of 6 and the hostess had an extremely bad attitude. We were looking to have a few drinks and maybe some light food- nothing too heavy and we didn't plan on staying too long. The place was pretty much empty (10PM Sat night) and we wanted to get a small table at the bar and stand and socialize. The hostess was extremely rude and kept pressuring us to get a booth. We didn't want to be sitting in the back of the restaurant if we were there to just hang out and have light food. She seemed ANGRY and ANNOYED. Maybe she was just having a bad night, but we ended up leaving. The crowd was strange anyway and there are many other better lounges/bars without the bad attitude a few blocks away. I'm not sure how the brunch is- it always looks busy Saturday and Sunday brunch hours- but if they want to have customers and not appear EMPTY on a Saturday night- the hostess needs to lose her attitude.
