Great meal before a show at the Orpheum. They were out of the 2 mains I wanted to choose which should have been disclosed up front. The charcuterie was very good and my friends Mac and Cheese with pancetta, was perfection. I would go back and give them a try again.

Came here before seeing a show at the Orpheum. Good food, service was lacking a bit but didn't bother me a whole lot. Nice ambiance and there was a good crowd when we went.

The service was undeniably slow but our server was the only staff member working the entire restaurant. Considering his circumstances he was incredibly pleasant, communicative and was hustling his booty off. We appreciated the experience and were empathetic to the situation. The burger with Brie was amazing and we left full and satisfied. Would definitely come back!

My friend had the burger - as always. It's the best burger in town and the fries are good too.

I opted for the dungeness crab croquettes and I can't wait to go back for more while they are in season.

Meanwhile I eyed the chicken being devoured at an adjacent table.

Decisions! Decisions??

Bummer this time. The fried chicken was soggy and cold. Enough said.

I hate to write a bad review because the food was excellent as it was two months ago when we returned after a long hiatus from the restaurant. But the service was awful. We don't blame the waiter, who was on his second day of employment. He tried hard and he was very pleasant. It was the kitchen and the bar. We knew that something must be amiss when it took 20 minutes to fill our cocktail order at a point when the restaurant was still relatively empty. I ordered a salade Nicoisse. It was served a decent time after I ordered, but my wife's risotto, ordered at the same time as mine, did not come with it. We waited and waited for the risotto. I could have eaten three servings of the Nicoisse in that time frame. It finally arrived after a 40 minute wait. We had theatre tickets and so we left as soon as my wife finished the risotto. We skipped dessert and paid in cash because we feared we would have another long wait for the restaurant to process our credit card. In all, we arrived at 6 pm and departed at 7:45, having had just one course and a cocktail.
