  • HOME COOKED MEAL

    The food here is wonderful, super comfort food. It takes a little bit to get the food to the table and it's worth it as you know it is all freshly cooked when your order. Have had the Danish Meatballs, amazing, Shepherds Pie, amazing, Paella (Friday night special,) again, amazing. We ate there one time and we were so impressed returned a week later and the food did not disappoint. The service is good and the atmosphere is really comfortable. Truly feels like a home cooked meal, we will be returning.

    This was our second visit. We liked it the first time but thought it was a bit expensive for what we got. So this time we took advantage of their Tuesday half price special, and had a very pleasant meal at a very reasonable price. This is an attractive upscale coffee shop kind of place with an interesting and eclectic (American, Danish and Brit) menu. The food is well prepared but not exceptional.

    My wife and I had a very pleasant dinner. This is not a fancy restaurant, but it is very pleasant and friendly. It is the kind of place you might go to when the wife decides she doesn't want to cook. I had a cup of tomato basil soup and the rib sticking shepards pie, both were very good but not exceptional. My wife had a large helping of pickled herring which was a bit overwhelming...but good. There are some expensive items on the menu, like Beef Wellington for $28. And the wine is not cheap. I like this place, but I think they need to rethink whether they are an upscale coffee shop serving dinner (which is what they are) or a fancy restaurant (which they are not but their prices think so).

    What an excellent surprise! Our food was very high quality, prepared and presented beautifully, LARGE portions, great service. Although we have been to the location in Sausalito, this was an extremely pleasant surprise!

    The restaurant had recently opened. It looks like it has potential but it appeared they are still working out the menu selections to have a theme instead of a hodge podge of different items. We like the Sausilito food so hope this location will evolve over time to be great.

    This cute little has a nice feel to it. The staff are on it and very friendly and helpful. Our chicken, tomato, garlic sauce is something I am craving to have again soon. One of the specials our group had was meatloaf, mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. The portion was generous and the mix of veggies was really great. The one downside, which was disappointing is that the meatloaf and the potatoes were too salty. I am a salt lover, but it was too salty for even me.
