The food was really tasty. Though small in portion for the price. I did have to send my rack of lamb back because it was cold which tells me that its not fresh, which was disappointing, but still full of flavor. The server was moderately knowledgeable about the menu. Enough to answer most of our questions. However it was the manager that was the best. Her attitude was pleasantly sauve. Overall we had a great meal and a wonderful evening and definitely will be returning. Side nite be sure to make reservations as they were pretty busy.

I went with a group of 6 for dinner and had the best time. We each chose 1 or 2 things from the menu and shared. Everything was so good. I would especially recommend them steamed buns.

Rose bubbles served way to warm. Very nice waitresses brought another glass but when it's this hot and humid it needs to be ice cold not refrigerator cold.

We had a couple of new/seasonal items this time. Fabulous shrimp dish, and the heirloom tomato dish was superb. We need to come more often, that's all there is to it!

Went with some friends and enjoyed sharing a bunch of different plates! Wine was half off so we got a bottle to share! John, our server, was knowledgeable and friendly! I always have a great time dinning at Extra Virgin. Did I mention their food is top notch too?!

Perfect place for before-theatre dinner. Michael is always so creative. Customer service is great. Employees had to move a two top table beside us to another location and comped us a glass of rose champagne for the inconvenience!

We walked in off the street hoping to get a patio seat. We did not have a reservation, but the hostess let us know that we could sit at the bar and she would let us know when a patio table was ready. We sat at the bar for 2 hours and she never came back. After watching several parties leave, it was clear that seating was indeed available. I approached the hostess and I asked if we could be seated at our table. I was then informed that there were no available tables. I pulled up my phone and made a reservation on Open Table, informed her that I had a reservation, and that I would like a patio table. The hostess looked at her computer, said “okay”, and promptly sat us outside.

I highly recommend using the Open Table app if you want to receive any kind of service from this establishment because the hostess seems to rely exclusively on this fantastic technology in order to manage even the simplest of customer requests. Thanks Open Table!

This was our first visit and we were overwhelmed (in a good way) by all of the choices on the menu. Thank heavens they were small plates as it was very difficult for us to decide between all the options. We had to force ourselves to quit ordering and make sure we finished what was already on the table. The service was attentive and friendly. It's a bit noisy, but we were tucked back in a corner and able to have a lively conversation without difficulty. I will be going back!

Our waitress was super sweet however the manager on duty tried to switch the wine that I ordered like I wasn't going to know. They didn't know the wine list at all and tried to serve our food at 2 different times. I usually have a very good experience here but today was absolutely atrocious.

Great service. Biggest bowl of Marcona Almonds I have ever had.
Roasted and Smoked Beet Salad w Tamarind and crushed almonds was my favorite. I would drive and park downtown just for that.
Mushrooms were also very good. Included Oyster mushrooms.
Chicken Thighs and Meatballs rounded out our meal. We ordered way too much for 2 people.
Service was fantastic. Mikaela was our server and we were allowed to use our Michael Smiths coupon even though Michael Smiths has closed
