Our servers just made the experience mot as great as it could have been. She seemed to be training someone but she had poor habits. Had to ask multiple times to get mimosas. Then they weren’t chilled when we received them. Once the mimosas came we needed glasses. Half the glasses were dirty or smelled weird. I ordered the poached eggs they came boiled probably from sitting under the heat lamp. I enjoyed myself still since they served us the food after being there for about an hour.
I came here for a birthday reservation on time. We reserved an outdoor bubble for 10 people and the rain destroyed the bubble and it collapsed. The staff did not make an attempt to seat us inside when we had a reservation. It was pouring and there was no attempt to accommodate us. Will not be returning, and went across the street to eat instead.
The outdoor seating is cheap plastic tents that create a sauna on the inside. The waiters have to run back and forth from the outdoor seating to the restaurant across the street making everything take forever.
Needs some work. Has the potential to be a great restaurant, but needs a lot of improvement!
Our server was amazing and the food was bomb! The ambiance was giving 🤩
Food was unseasoned, waitress had unsanitary issues. Her hair was long, past her butt and was everywhere. Nobody was at the front to greet and seat customers for 20mins. The waitress didn't check on us after food was delivered.
The atmosphere was cool, food HORRIBLE is actually an understatement. If you sit in the garden they walk your food across the street in aluminum pans and that does not sit right with our food was cold and the grit was more water then grits. Service was all over the place. I think the rose garden was a nice idea just not the right set up, probably better during the winter
Our waitress was VERY nice & accommodating. The outdoor dining is great to look at but not recommended. Everything is across the street at the restaurant. We asked for ice, server had to go across the street to get it, (but it had hair in it) so she had to go back AGAIN although we told her she didn’t have to. The food itself was delivered from across the street so by the time it got to us, it was not aesthetically pleasing. Like I said the waitress was very nice but the restaurant service itself was inconvenient. The waitress even had to go pay our bill across the street and it took a while because inside was so busy. The food was OKAY, nothing to write home about. I was very disappointed because I thought it was going to be a great experience, especially with it being the first DC restaurant to try because I was visiting from out of town.
Great food, mimosas, & vibes! There are several seating options if you want to enjoy the nice weather.
The atmosphere was really good! I enjoyed our people and music! Service was decent, my server did go MIA for a minute but it was okay. Food tasted fair, the best thing I had were the wings and mambo sauce but getting 5 wings for $13 was it for me. That was ridiculous.
I had a reservation to sit outside and no one was out there to direct us to our table. We sat ourselves. There was one waitress who had about three other tables out there. The food took too long to come out. Me and a friend got the crab fries and it was not good at all. The crab meat looked weird and literally only got a spoonful of it, the fries were soggy. The only good thing was the mimosas. I’ve been here before and never had service this poor, maybe it was just a bad day, I don’t know.
The service was really bad which is why this place gets two stars. We sat for almost 30 minutes before being greeted by our waitress, and she forgot to put our order in. Our appetizer came out with our meal and the food seemed thrown together and wasn’t the best. I understand that it was super busy however we’ve been to plenty of busy restaurants when the customer service was better.
We decided on brunch in DC for my husband’s birthday. We made a reservation for outside, but asked if we could be seated indoors because of the heat. The hostess was pleasant and upon checking, was able to seat us indoors with no additional wait. Our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu. We all ordered different meals, some savory, some sweet, and the crab fries were by far my favorite! My breakfast sandwich was served on a funnel cake (so unique) but I would have liked the funnel cake to have been hotter.
Overall we had a great time and will definitely return!
The service was extremely slow, our waitress ignored us. The portions were laughable, we can for bottomless happy hour and we’re extremely disappointed.
Went during bottomless happy hour and received horrible service. Waited over an hour for one drink
I knew it was going to be a great time when I opened the door! the food was so delicious we all finished our food ! And booked another reservation for upcoming weekend so we can experience this energy again !
First time visiting after the pandemic. Things have changed and not so much in a good way. Could have been an off day. Service and food quality was very fair.
Honestly, they need better organization with the outdoor seating service. It should not take 30 mins after being seated that someone finally takes your order. It was only taken after we had mentioned to the hostess that no one had came to our table yet. The waitress who she asked to help us it wasn’t even her section. I do appreciate her taking the help us she was nice. However, there is not enough staff on the outdoor seating area to cover all the tables. When my food finally came part of it was wrong. What I ordered was just not worth the wait nor the money to me.
It was fun, food was great, music was good, service was rough
I definitely hate the high seating area because my chair felt unstable but i went again with outside seating instead and it was much better. I do wish that they would explain to get your games before heading over to the outdoor seating area but the food and ambiance was great.
The halfsmoke (sausage) was bland and the burger tasted like gristle. None of the food we had was brought out hot including several appetizers. You can do much better for your money elsewhere and nearby.
Amazing food with a little bit of yum in every bit!
I love the manager luwam!!
My wife and I visited D.C. for my birthday weekend. I found this spot while looking for black-owned brunch options. The service and vibe was exceptional and so was the food. We will definitely come back.
The food here is great. However, the service is horrible. The outdoor area is down the road and across the street, so you basically get ignored the entire time. My reservation was at 5:30 pm and we did not even get our first drink until 6:20 pm. We also were participating in happy hour that lasted until 7 pm and were not served until 6:45 pm. At this point we were told that all but one of the happy hour items were unavailable after already deciding upon it. We were very understanding, but we still ended up paying over $80 for everything that was almost two hours late. We talked to multiple other tables around us who were facing the same exact issue. We definitely will not be returning and advise others to do the same.
RSVP was for 3:15pm . My group arrived all on time and still was not seated until 3:46pm. It was 4:30pm before we received a carafe of water or ANY of our bottomless mimosas. It was 5pm before we got our food which came out AFTER our waitress came back to our table shocked to see us still not eating then says the kitchen missed our order. Once it finally came out it came in portions and somehow still cold.. Completely horrible first impression.
This place needs to seriously rethink their business setup. We had a reservation at 1, we didn't get seated until 1:30. We had to walk across the street to get to bubbles that air condition barely worked. The server took 20 mins to come to the table to just tell us the menu is online" look it up " is what he said to us. Then they bring hot mimosas to the table, HOT! Not chilled. When the food arises it's cold and barely edible. The server is no where to be found through all of this.
I ended up having to send all our food back. They charged us 60 dollars and 40 dollars in gratuity for service that was barely given. I would not recommend this place for brunch ever!
Food not good. Drinks over priced. Service was slow.
Absolute garbage experience. Drinks were slow. Food was slow. One entree out of 6 never showed up. Waitress was indifferent. Skip this place.
Great vibe , awesome place in the heart of DC , 90’s-2000’s music friendly and the service was great even when they were short staffed. Definitely recommend for a date ‘
I loved the food but the service (check-in/hostess) was poor. Our server was busy but made up for the lack of communication, presence, and utensils. Love the energy and the vibe.
Food was not good… unseasoned and plain. The AC was not working. They ran out of a lot of food. Not enough wait staff.
Terrible service and missing major menu. Items. How can you have brunch but not even be able to serve a Bloody Mary?
For college age people.
The worst customer service I have experienced in my 8 years of living in DC. The bottomless happy hour is a bottomless joke. Don’t waste your time or money if you want to recieve horrible service and lackluster drinks/food. Halfsmoke please do better!
Started out great and went downhill after we ordered our drinks. The server was polite, but didn’t check back on us often and we waited an extended period of time to get our drinks and food. The food came out and the chicken sandwich was burnt, fried pickles were greasy, and the fries looked like they came from the bottom of the bag. Just awful, and I’m shocked because the brunch was great the last time. I certainly hope they improve.
First time at half smoke was amazing, I was there for brunch.
Vibes and good people, that’s all a sis needs! loved the fact they had games for us to play. My server was awesome can’t remember her name but she was very accommodating and answered all my questions. The staff was great too, very helpful even when my server was assisting other tables.
Whoever the Dj was? 10/10 definitely would recommend.
Definitely will be returning in the near future!
Very slow service, great food and ambiance.
good was fantastic!!!!!! the vibes were unmatched! our server was great once she got to our table! however, we waited at the door for a while to get seated and the person who sat us was very nonchalant and cold. he also sat us and never told our server so we sat for a very long time without being served. he was the only bad part about our time there. everything else was perfect
Super loud music and customers , incorrect food delivered, server did not pay attention to anything we said - put in food and drinks we didn’t request and then still proceeded to charge us for it. Dining room and music was too loud to have a simple conversation. Manager was good and helpful.
