  • "Our first time visiting (thank you, Open Table) and it was love at first bite. The four of us walked about with both happy tummies and a happy wallet. Can't wait to return for brunch. "

  • "Food was good but the Margaritas pathetic (both rocks and frozen). If a bottle of Tequila ever inhabited the same ZIP code as the drinks we were served (at $7.50 each during Happy Hour), I'd be astonished."

  • "Dinner with daughter and son in law. A favorite restaurant in the Marina. Never have had fish tacos before but just felt like something lighter for dinner. Two very generously filled corn tortillas filled with all the usual, plus large pieces of fresh fish. Absolutely wonderful. A small salad accompanied, also very good. The fish, the tomato, lettuce, w a bit of cilantro added, along with diced mango. Just terrific. That along with a margarita and chips and guacamole. Life is grand. The waitress, whose name I have forgotten, was the best. Attentive and friendly. Great customer service as always at this Marina neighborhood gem."
