Very good food but poor service. Waiters seemed disinterested in service and attentiveness. Foxy o service and could be a first rate eatery as location and decor on point.

The hostesses and server were awesome. The food was really good and the portions were more than enough to take some back home. Love the bathroom/social lounge area and they played throwback and newer R&B all night. Great spot.

I went to Ms. Tootsie's on a Sunday. The menu is limited to brunch items only and there wasn't much of a selection. I got the chicken and cheese omelette and substituted my home fries for grits. The fruit that came with it included watermelon...More
