Went in on a Sunday afternoon to try some Elysian beers. Atmosphere was pretty good - high ceilings, lots of booths, music wasn't overly loud or anything offensive. Right away, however, I could tell service was going to be an issue. Our waiter looked like he just rolled out of bed, with his scruffy clothes and eyes almost closed... the other employees were no exception. We each ordered a sampler of their basic beers, which arrived on a small plank with a piece of paper indicating which was which. No explanation of the beers at all. One of the beers was supposed to be the Jasmine IPA, but apparently the tap ended after my pour, so my brother was given the Great Pumpkin without being asked. We had to flag the waiter down for another sampler of their "different beers"... when they finally came, they both had a Great Pumpkin in them... 2nd time for my brother! Had to remind the waiter for waters a couple of times. He was pretty much just plain rude; all the employees were really just hanging out and chatting when not delivering food.
Oh well. The beers were good, but service so lax I couldn't see myself returning next time I'm in the city.
