We came for the Beatles brunch. They had no coffee. And they had no coffee machines, so they had to go buy some, which took more than 30 minutes (will update with time taken once it gets here). They had 2 servers handling what seemed to be 200 people. Their first announcement was to let us know there is a service charge in addition to your ticket price (should probably mention that when buying tickets). The second announcement was that they were low on silverware, so reuse it. So real curious why I would need to pay an additional service charge.

I sure am gonna miss this place. I have seen a variety of acts here, including Little Richard, Belinda Carlisle, George Clinton - and THE MAN himself, BB King. Opening act for George Clinton - Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf, really really ROCKED the house! I read that The Times Square location has closed, and may reopen at a Union Square. That is good news ... Thank you for a great time over the last 18 years .. It sure was a blast!

I ordered chicken and waffles. The food was alright, but it took sooooo long for the food and drink to arrive. The staff was nice and all, but I payed good money to go there and I didn't get much time to eat. I was there on a field trip. My group arrived 1st and we good food last. Plus, the cups are easily breakable. The bathroom lines are super long, and, me and my group got yelled at for trying to find a different bathroom 🚻. My rating would have been higher if the service was a bit better. No hate on the staff and the chefs, though.

There really needs to be a 0 Star option on here. If you do take it upon yourself to patronize this establishment, DO NOT pay extra for VIP seating. I waited for the entirety of the event to be seated. My only interaction with the person responsible for seating was actually him being nasty about those waiting in the designated area as I ended up in the stairway trying to actually pay attention to the reason I was even there. I was offered no recourse. So, I paid extra to stand behind people who paid less and enjoyed themselves more and couldn’t even see Frankie Beverly behind the damn pillar. I tried to have a good time despite feeling completely played to no avail.

We went to the gospel brunch here. It really was a surprise for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the show. The Harlem Gospel Choir were incredible and I'd highly recommend a visit if you're in the area. The open buffet was nice and there were refreshments and drinks too. A beautiful afternoon. I will probably visit again next time I'm in NYC.
