"The food was okay and took forever (we waited over 30 mins for our table of four's meals to be served during a nearly empty Sunday brunch), but our server was polite and quick with taking our orders and coffee refills.
Overall, I liked the ambiance and am looking forward to enjoying the patio when the weather is warmer, but based on the food we got for brunch, I think I might just go for happy hour. I may amend my review once I've visited again."

Chef/Owner Robert Wiedmaier of Marcel's opens a casual, contemporary brasserie named after his younger son. The stunning space features an open steel and glass kitchen visible from three sides, set across from a unique family-style chef's table, dramatic 22-foot ceilings and a raw bar located at the end of a grand marble and walnut bar featuring an array of Belgian beers on tap to complement his French Belgian fare. Expansive outdoor patio is open April thru October. REAL certified by the US Healthful Food Council

"Brasserie Beck is always excellent. Great food and service. I've never had a bad meal here. Great seafood (mussels and oysters) and French quisine. Impressive wine list. Servers are informed but not snooty/condescening."

Zengo, which translates to "give 'n take", merges flavors of Chef Richard Sandoval's heritage with his passion for Asian cuisine. This melding of flavors and cultures results in intriguing shareable dishes.

"Their bottomless small plates and brunch cocktails is great for a group. When we ordered each small plate, they made sure to bring out enough of that dish so that everyone at the table could try it (there were four of us). They even brough us special dishes that we didn't order for no additional charge.
We happily ate and drank for two hours, and unlike some establishments with "bottomless" brunches, they never pressured us to leave. We probably could have stayed for another hour if we all hadn't had our fill already. Definitely a great brunch spot for groups."
