We always like coming here. Food was nicely prepared, server attentive. We sat in the tented area outside but are ready for indoors again because it’s a nice space.

The service was spotty- friendly but they just seemed a little understaffed. Very nice ambience and the food was fine but it was a bit overpriced for what it was.

We made reservations to sit outdoors on the back patio. It’s our favorite place to be seated at this restaurant because it’s quieter and we love being outdoors. Our server was great, the food arrived in a timely manner and everyone in our party thought that their food was delicious.

We arrived at 8:15 and someone right away brought us water and took our order, we order 2 appetizers and out main dish right away, one of the appetizers was served around 15 min later after ordering but our food actually took 1 hr and 15min to get go us, some food was delicious but other was rushed and raw/ over cooked.

Staff very friendly and working their butts off! Still, service was slow.....maybe it was just us.... we sat down at the bar at the same time another couple sat down (we actually got seated first) but their order was taken first. We ordered right after but our food took way longer to get. When we finally got our entree, the other couple was getting up and walking out the door. But, can't complain too much - staff is super nice and are RUNNING. Everyone from the kitchen to the servers to the bartender to the dishwashers were moving as fast as they could. We will definitely try this place again as we liked the food and there were lots of menu items we would like to try.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Way overpriced for the food. The service was very slow and dishes not timed correctly. The meatball appetizer arrived cold. The steak was overdone. The seafood taglialini was missing the fish and instead of taking the dish back and remaking it correctly, the server brings two small bite sizes of unseasoned cooked fish. No apologies or anything. Never going back.

Halibut entree was delicious. Expensive, but delicious. But good fish is expensive these days and it was cooked perfectly. Parking was easy.

I reserved a couple days in advance for a Friday night. We had no issue with it, even calling to add an additional person. Phone service was great, parking isn’t ideal in the area but. Everything in the restaurant was delicious we were pleased with the staff. Food was great!

I was with a group of three and all were pleased with the food. My friend's burrito was prepared totally different from how she requested. It did not take very long for them to prepare another. I prefer the patio ambiance better than the inside area. There are many more parking meters in this area compared to just one year ago. It's hard to find free parking on the restaurant side of Washington.

We ate here on a Wednesday night that wasn't super busy. (We had a reservation but didn't need one.) Initial service was very attentive; the only long lull was after we ordered drinks and appetizers. There did not appear to be many staff working - our server was doing double duty as the bartender. But I really can't complain. We enjoyed two wonderful red wines by the glass (one of two Super Tuscans, and the Daou Pessimist), and every food item was outstanding. Our family had the charcuterie board to start, and for entrees, the lamb shank, the short rib lasagna, and the fish of the day (a parmesan crusted halibut with a lobster sauce and steamed veggies). It's a great neighborhood spot and we would definitely return the next time we're in San Diego.

The only negative was the wine pricing. A very small glass for $14-$15 is steep. Otherwise it was lovely, service excellent, ambiance wonderful outdoors.

Fantastic! It was our first time eating at a restaurant in over a year and it was a great experience. Great social distancing out on the patio. There are lights above and the ambience is very nice with heaters to keep you warm. Highly recommend the risotto and truffle fries!
