    The ambiance and staff are great. We had a reservation but ending up having to wait 15 minutes for a table so the host kindly comped our drinks ordered at the bar. The cocktails were good. I had the golden girl which was slightly spicy and not too sweet. To share with my friend we ordered the peel and eat shrimp, brussel sprouts, pork ribs, grilled sweet corn, and whipped ricotta. The corn and ricotta with bread were my favorite dishes. The brussel sprouts were overly sauced and way too salty. Noone likes soggy, salty brussel sprouts! The pork ribs had a nice flavor but they weren't fall off the bone tender as the waiter had promised. The peel and eat shrimp were not great or bad. The aoli that the shrimp came with was too heavy for me.

    Had the steak and eggs and it was a perfect portion, really delicious and good value for money. However the service was terrible, I booked a table however they have our table to the wrong people causing us to wait 20 minutes for a table. I understand it was a warm day however the waiter had completely sweated through his shirt and droplets of sweat were falling from his beard. Litreally onto my leg. We had to wait nearly 10 minutes to put in a drink order which took them over 20 minutes to bring to us, meanwhile we flagged down the waitress to order good because after waiting for over 20 minutes no one had taken our order. However, the food was great!

    Our group was prepared to like Goldies, but it didn't happen. Decor/ambiance is great. Really enjoyed the indoor/outdoor vibe. Service started out fine, but went steadily downhill as the place got busier. Food was OK, but for the price, needs to be stepped up a notch, and the portions are embarrassingly small for the price. We were there for brunch. 1 piece of bread for French toast? Really? The quality of the food seems right on, but the combination of flavors was average. Cocktails, however, were super. I doubt we'll be back.

    Very good bar if you like those trendy mixologist prepared cocktails. Hoison shoulder pork chop was primo and better than Jar's rib cut. Pate starter had variety and was well prepared. We all enjoyed some veggie small plates and a really good Hanger steak too that was properly cooked as requested. Date cake dessert was really excellent. But the waiter, oh the waiter....full of himself. I don't want stupid rhetorical questions when I ask about the menu and I don't want to wait for the check while he chats up women at the bar. I was sufficiently disturbed that I felt it necessary to put it in my review. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to returning to this nicely designed, well thought out restaurant with excellent food.

    The food was good, but nothing above average. The service was horrendous as it was busy and only 1 waiter for over half a dozen tables. The dj in the middle of a small restaurant was having issues with sound. Limited space overall and just an unsettling experience unfortunately. I am an avid restaurant attendee and into fine dining; therefore, I do have a frame of reference when reviewing a place like Goldie's.

    Goldie's had good food and a nice ambience. Overall we had a nice experience, but the service was extremely slow. Our dinner for three people lasted over 2.5 hours which was not what we were looking for when we tried to find a place for a casual Sunday night dinner. The wait staff were very nice though, so don't want to give them a bad review.

    Dined on 4/19/2014
    This was for brunch for my birthday... It always baffles me when "nice" restaurants use McDonalds style buns for sandwiches and burgers. Besides that, the food was bland and overpriced. Our server was slow and couldn't be bothered. My mom said she had a question on the menu and he said "wait until I explain it before you ask your questions." It was strange. Lastly, we were on the patio and were being scorched by the sun so we asked that the retractable awning be closed just by a small amount and the server did not attempt to ask the manager until after we had already gotten our food, and then closed the entire patio making everyone on the patio upset.

    I like this place quite a bit. The staff, presentation, ambience is all there. Believe that you'd attract a larger audience if your menu was larger and your prices lower. I think you'd build a loyal following this way, especially in this neighbourhood where new restaurants are popping up everywhere.

    Lots of great wood-fired food. Nice build out of old Chado Tea Space. Goldie is award winning mixologist behind the bar. She has some great drinks using fantastic selection of artisanal ryes, bourbons, and other whiskies from around the world. Wine program is moderately priced and exclusively bio dynamic. Lot of really good luscious choices. Want to go back soon.

    The food is great for sharing. This was our 3rd or 4th time there and we LOVE the food. BUT My only complaint is that the music they had on was a bit loud (we were sitting on the patio and even there it was hard to have a converstaion) and their choice of music sounded to me like it was what should be played at the gym for workouts!

    After not seeing two of our favorite couples for some months, we decided to brunch it up at Goldie's. It was the perfect choice. Valet is available. Brunch offers bottomless mimosas, which were blood orange for us. Delicious! Definitely start with the Avocado Toast! Just the right amount of citrus and the toast is perfectly crunchy. Between the six of us we ordered the Eggs Benedict and the Steak and Eggs. My steak was cooked perfectly, however, I would have liked a little more salad. Everyone enjoyed their Eggs Benedict...I tried some of the kale on their dish and was surprised at how incredibly delicious it was. The service was fantastic. Our server was very attentive and kept the mimosas flowing. TIP: you HAVE to have the bread pudding!

    Reasons why I will go back to Goldie's and why I think you should go there too: - Easy to make a reservation - Greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable host - Kindly escorted to our table - Assisted by our waiter in helping to make food and drink decisions - Liquids and edibles came out quickly and everything was scrumptious - We were checked on frequently for satisfaction - Prices were fair and we were even given the option of adding more money for "water donation" to help SoCal - The neighborhood is happenin', so we had several options for post-dinner cocktails elsewhere

    the moment we walked into restaurant there was this really strong odor just hit me..it smells like garbage or something rotten, could be the trashcan or the waste from the kitchen. The patio area was covered with tarp due to the cold weather, so the smell got trapped inside the room. .it was not pleasant. However, our waitress was very attentive and offered great service. As for the food, let's just say we will not go back for that. Portion was okay but for the price you pay it is considered expensive. Maybe I have not dined out lately and am not aware of the price hike...We ordered 7 dishes and to be honest nothing stood out. especially we ordered most of the recommended dishes. I guess you pay for the ambiance and location.

    We had a reservation but tables weren't turning over and we ended up waiting a while until a high top became available. The host was very apologetic, checking in with us often and explaining the situation. Once we were finally seated they covered our apps and dessert as an apology which wasn't even necessary. Every dish we had was amazing! Brusell sprouts, scallops... all great. Highly recommend.

    I didn't have a good food experience. The server was in a hurry although the place was virtually empty. The food wasn't memorable or actually good —the drink was — the worse Ricotta Hot Cakes ever! 3 chunks of plain wheat on a plate — the Cornish Hen was great and the ambiance, the fact that you have a 'nice place' to be outside on 3rd St. (there are other places but they're right on the side walk) — I live in the area and If I ever happen to come back, would definitely be for the drinks because the food wasn't memorable.
