Beautifully decorated old downtown building. Old chandeliers hang throughout. Sunday jazz brunch should not be missed! Food is superior and service is amazing.

Great place for Sunday jazz brunch, build your own Bloody Mary bar. Menu for brunch has 6 items all of which are very good. Delicious fried chicken and waffles. Burrito is huge and tasty. Quiche is good and the crab eggs Benedict is great.

This place has all of the hallmarks of a what a cool downtown restaurant is supposed to be these days: very high ceiling, exposed brick, eclectic pictures/photos on the wall, big bar.
The name comes from the choices they have : choice of five appetizers, five entrees, etc.
Novel idea.
Our waiter was fabulous; he blended attentiveness with leaving us alone. He showed up when we needed him and answered every question we had. Positive, likeable.
We felt our food was only "OK". The chicken with caper sauce was the best entree our table had. My wife's quesadilla was not memorable, and my crab stuffed shrimp was very disappointing. They looked quite unusual on the plate: picture an ice cream scoop of gooey crab meat stuffing (more stuffing than crab) with a medium sized shrimp stuck inside of it. It was nearly flavorless and the gooey stuffing eventually made me stop eating it. Unfortunately, no one asked me how the food was and no one noticed that I left half of my plate untouched. I decided not to raise an issue; but if I go back, I'll try something very different than the stuffed shrimp or quesadilla.

Very bad experience. Server never showed up for first 25 minutes, after we inquired one person came to take order. We had confirmed at front desk if they have vegetarian options even before sitting. After waiting another 15 minutes we were told they can not do vegetarian. We got waffle n toast after waiting overall more than an hours. Went with kids and they were not happy with all the wait and no food. Bad experience, never going there again...ever!

nothing else was great about this place. its not that this is a bad restaurant, its just that there was nothing special about it. prices were a little high, menu limited, food was very average imo. service was good, but slow. parking not too far away in one of the free city garages. with all that said, the location is great.
no rush for us to return.
