Married men and their wives beware! Ashley is so desperate to get married that she professed her love to a married man, one of her patrons, and attempted to rent an apartment with him! Ashley is uneducated, has a dead end job and is not attractive so she will go to any means to ruin other's lives. She needs to learn about ethics, respect, boundaries, and most of all needs to learn to leave married men alone. I hope her mom enjoys the letter she will be receiving explaining her daughter's exceptional behavior.
Working at a restaurant can be a crap job and I can sympathize but I have never had a someone be as rude and terrible to me here. With a small group of people I stepped to the other quiet, empty side of the restaurant to answer an important phone call instead of stepping out in the rain. The bartender demanded I leave loudly until I got off of the phone. Aggressive older tattooed guy named Rob I think. After I complained to the waiter and once sitting back down my friends asked what happened. As they looked across the restaurant he yelled "Do we have a problem?!". It made me and my friends so uncomfortable and me upset that we left. We had already gotten over it and sat down when this happened, like he was trying to start a fight with them because I was sitting with two men. It was two in the afternoon on a sunday. Plenty of other places with better service and better food.
Glad they closed. The food was alright but WAY overpriced. Ian the co-owner/manager is a piece of s**t. At the time of writing this, a few different former employees are still owed back paychecks.
I ordered the hush puppies, blackened fried catfish and garlic mashed potatoes. They serve instant mashed potatoes now! Tacky and gross. When I asked about it, I was told that they do that sometimes when they run out. Geez, ever heard of "86" when something runs out rather than slipping in some crappy substitute for the real thing? I would gladly have ordered something different had I known, although early into a Friday night you would think they wouldn't already be out of one of their most basic staples. Everything besides the fish tasted old, hard and stale, like it was prepared yesterday afternoon and left under a fast food heat lamp, which may explain why, on a busy night, they cranked out our food a lot faster than our drinks, which came to our table sometime after dinner arrived. Even the service was a disappointment. Our waitress was heavy on the schlocky affectations and her "eccentricities," which included skipping, a terrible fake French accent, and weaving her hand in the air while speaking as if playing a theramin, were all about as genuine as the cement-like lump of instant mashed potatoes on my plate. I have been coming to this place since they first opened up on SE Belmont street in the 90's, when the quality of the food mattered and the people serving it were great servers with real personalities. It is hard to believe how much it's all gone downhill. There are too many good late night restaurants in town to accept what they're currently churning out. Let the kids go for the atmosphere. If food or service matters to you, go elsewhere.
Ordered a ckn caeser salad n asked for lemons n got lemon slices. WTF. ARE U FREAKING KIDDING ME. WEDGES. And the ckn had no flavor. I pushed ckn aside n left food. How sad.
Is a crappy place with crappy people
Wow! This is one place I will NEVER be returning to again! I overheard some short, little Asian guy (presumably the owner) berating his employees and talking about how "lazy Americans" are. I was so offended I got up and walked out. The
twilight use to be my favorite dive bar with a kickass breakfast menu. I had heard rumors about how the new owner had decimated the place, so I had to check it out for myself. Decimated doesnt even begin to explain what he's done. Menu sucks, ambiance has tanked!
Horrible service, horrible food! I was served raw chicken - end of story.
HORSE BRASS PREFERS TO SUPPORT LOCAL DRUNK GUYS AT THE BAR THAN WOMEN TRYING TO HAVE DINNER WITH THEIR FAMILIES WHO CONFIRMED IN ADVANCE THAT ITS OKAY TO BRING CHILDREN.
One of the worst meals I have ever eaten. To call it mexican cuisine is like saying the olive garden is fine italian. The green mayo they call guacamole was the worst trick ever played on me in a restaurant. If you are looking for a break up spot however I give it five stars!
very FAT people and very OLD.
im no 10 but damb there is a hole lot of ugly there I had to get my wifes and I money back from the door fee it was too gross
Why should I eat here? With that kind of treatment from "the boss" to his employees (or former employees), I will NOT ever eat here!
Join us in supporting Gibson and help us wish her former boss, Mike Lemmo, a happy birthday!
Gibson is a barista who worked at the Lyrik Cafe for over a year.
Mike Lemmo bought the business at the beginning of August and replaced original staff after they trained their replacements. Mike often used abusive language and called Gibson a “dirty hippie” shortly before firing her via text message.
He then stole over $100 from Gibson’s final paycheck, and has yet to provide her with a single paystub.
Gibson, We Are Oregon, and dozens of community allies have held a series of actions at the Lyrik Cafe over the last 3 weeks, topped off with a picket on Tuesday. It is important that we keep the pressure on Mike to return the wages he stole from Gibson.
Mike is turning 65 this weekend, and you’re invited to his birthday picket! Come share your birthday wishes, walk the picket line, and eat some cake!

Went to Sayler’s old country kitchen with my girl Saturday Night, it was packed we had a 30 min. wait but it was that time of night
We got seated in a nice booth I ordered the Filet Mignon and Trish ordered the Prime rib, when the food came my filet was bloody when I ordered it med well and Trish’s Prime rib was the ugliest most disgusting piece of Prime rib I have ever seen, the fat on it was solid lard. We pushed both dinners to the end of the table to be sent back, the owner
Walked by and asked what was wrong with our dinners I told him my was under cooked (which it happens) and then we told him about the prime rib, he laughed in our face’s and told us we don’t know what a good Prime rib looks like and offered to cut the lard off and bring it back. “WHAT THE HELL” tell the customer they don’t know what we are talking about, I have never been treated so badly in a restaurant before and by the owner no less, I said the hell with this we are out of here, we met with the Manager which was nice and understanding and told us they had a big run on Prime rib and he was sorry and shook his head like he knew the owner was a jerk but since he was the owner there was not much he could do. Worst restaurant experience I have ever had, the owner needs to learn some customer service skills from his waitresses!!!
Traditionally poor sound quality. Every single show that I have been to over the years has had terrible mix. I hope that they invest some money on resolving these issues so that they don't become the punchline of the joke "oh no, it's at the Wonder Ballroom." The building itself is nice, unfortunately the sound quality makes great bands unlistenable.
Brings in the bros from the suburbs.
Fri & Sat night fights (and I don't mean on TV), drunk driving, obnoxious music, amateurs staggering in the middle of the street blocking traffic and causing a general public nuisance.
A disgusting and disrespectful addition to an otherwise nice neighborhood.
Main thing about this place, besides the Domino's crust, is the staff is odious, insidiously rude and just not helpful. If you ask for something, they just shrug their shoulders, "We're out of that," no apology or explanation. They'll just stand there and stare you down, obviously hoping you'll go away. And there's one scruffy dude (you're not hip, Bub, you just don't wash) and I think he's the shift supervisor or something, actually watched me park my car and waited for me to come in to order, to tell me I was parked in one of the delivery truck spots. He wouldn't take my order until I moved my car!
I've lived just a few blocks from Hot Lips for a number of years, and have been in there more times than I would like to admit, mostly because of the convenience and because there's always room in there if you want to join a few friends, but no more. This is Hawthorne, not The Pearl, we expect a better vibe, and if you want $30 for a pizza, how about delivering it hot? Next time we're in a rush, we'll hit Vicente's, where they're at least nicer.
Only reason for the star is, to be fair, they have good toppings and creative combinations. The sauce and the crust are the problem. And more importantly, the complete lack of social skills.
SERVICE SUCKS! The food is tasty, but overpriced for Foster and not worth enduring the stone faced and rude servers. Good luck getting a smile out of these gals... Go around the corner to Arleta Library instead. You might have to wait a bit longer, but the food is amazing and always served with a smile!
