Sylvain it's one of those places that I wanted to love but couldn't quite embrace. It's like a hipster cousin I can't figure out. Cocktails are composed of a dash of this and a dash of that, and you have to be either a bartender...More

Brunch at Sylvia's was fantastic! I highly recommend the crispy pork shoulder with grits. It is worth the wait if you forget to make reservations.More

If you enjoyed brunch so much, you must come back for dinner! We also feature the pork shoulder on our dinner menu with Coosa Valley Grits & bacon braised collard greens- instead of the sunny side up egg & tomato hollandaise! You know where to...More

Nice brunch. The ambiance, food, and service were just fine. The brunch menu offers a wide variety of specialty dishes. We had the lavender infused champagne- yummy. The food portions are large, so come hungry. I ordered the herb crusted pork with grits, and my...More
