 (Dallas)·Dined on October 30, 2017

We are accustomed to nice restaurants and had not found one in our area since moving to So.CAl last year. We have to go to LA or San Diego. We tried Bungalow because it showed up on OpenTable. We wanted somewhere nice and quiet, yet classy and quaint. From the valet to the entrance to being seated and throughout the meal, it was wonderful. It was nice a quiet for a husband and wife outing. We loved being there. Everyone/everything was excellent. I wanted halibut but they sold out so I had to have the salmon; it melted in my mouth. My husband had short ribs that fell off the bone. Both meals were 5stars!

The beef carpaccio & burrata salad were delicious. The main entree although tasty it was warm instead of hot - I had the short ribs which is delicious and such great comfort food but it has to be hot for it to be a delightful hit.

 (Indiana)·Dined on October 7, 2017

My niece was served a glass of ice water with a bottle cap in the bottom of it. next her wine glass had a huge lipstick mark on it. The server took care of it but was not very apologetic. The food was just so - so - not the topic of conversation as to how good it is. The manager followed with un asked for complimentarry desserts but truthfully, the poor begginngs at the table overshadowed the event.

Food was ok little too salty for me and I have to drink allot water that night. The grill artichoke wasn't hot more like warm. When I ask my server what is great gin for my martini and he said he prefer Hendricks gin so I believe his choice but When I got my bill there is additional 3 dollar fee for Hendricks gen plus my $13 dollar martini. I prefer the server at least let me know that there is a additional charge for it and i wouldn't mine paying for it.

 (Denver)·Dined on September 3, 2017

This was our 2nd visit. The service was good, food was average. It's a bit of an older crowd and the vibe was a bit stale in the restaurant. (On our 1st visit we sat on the patio in back as we didn't have a reservation. ) For the money, there are more modern dining experiences in area.

The server made up for the shortfalls.
