Great food. Mac & cheese with chili bacon added is a MUST. Awesome service. We were 15 mins late for our reservation due to an unforseen traffic accident. They accommodated us right away.

Quick service and friendly/approachable staff. Tables were spaced out well to allow for more breathing room while indoors. Outdoor patio dining looked lovely.

Ambience was great. Reservations definitely recommended. Menu choices weren’t as varied as I had hoped. Prices are a little high but that’s what you get for that area.

Did used to be fantastic here but honestly now is pretty mediocre. Sandwiches were dry and heave on the bread. Fortunately the salad was amazing, as always. Our server was fantastic. Too bad the food has seemed do you have declined a bit.

This restaurant provided a lovely, comfortable setting for my leisurely brunch with a dear friend. The service and ambiance were great! The food was good, but I wished more fresh fruit and fresh vegetable items were available on the menu.

My friend’s Caprese Salad was a huge disappointment. To begin with, it was not presented as a normal Caprese. One does not expect a large lump of cheese on top of a mound of greens and drenched in dressing. Quite strange. Please consider changing the method of preparation and presentation. The manager did come to our table to talk about our disappointment. We appreciate that, but hope some consideration will be given to making a change. I frequently dine at GM and have recommended it to others. I will be certain to warn them not to order the Caprese.

The food looked good but that’s where it stopped. For me I found the Cajun eggs Benedict was too salty. Poor choice in the bread chosen for this dish as it soaked up the sauce too quickly. I didn’t find anything special about their donuts. Overall concept and plating was good, poor on execution. I will not be choosing this location for my future dinning needs.

Had a late lunch here. Food was just ok. Had the portobello mushrooms fries which were decent, the main entrees chicken bowl was not good, kind of tasteless and the beignets were disappointing. Tasted more like donuts than beignets. Service was ok except they forgot to bring one of the orders.

Great food! Service has never been that good at this place (Pre, During and Post COVID), but you can always count on the delicious food to make you forget about the service. Go for the food, not the service. You will have to ask for items multiple times, and you will NOT get it. Don’t count on your drinks to be refilled. When the server comes by your table; get everything done in one shot (order, ask for drinks and condiments, ask for your check). The likelihood of seeing your server after initial visit is rare. You won’t get condiments (sugar for coffee or tea.etc), so now I bring my own. I’ve learned over the past years. Truly go for the food and you will leave tummy happy, satisfied and a bit annoyed. Host is not welcoming, but they get you seated at you EXACT reservation time. Don’t come a few minutes early; they will remind you that you are early and now the waitlist takes priority. Don’t come late because you will be told you have to waitlist now. Also, bring cash, especially if you need to leave at a certain time. Waiting on your server to get your card and bring back YOUR card may take up to 30-minutes. Double check your card, at times I’ve been given someone else’s card and prayed the person who got mine has not left. Took a few times to learn; cash only here….So to recap, go for the food! Have a reservation! Be on time! Bring your own condiments! Expect awesome food! Set the bar very low for service! Bring Cash.

Love this place for people watching and great food. An easy stop while at Fashion Island, the 'tourist parade' of questionable fashion is worth the price of admission ;-)

Had dinner after a few hours shopping at Fashion Island. Open Table reservation was quickly handled upon arrival. Enjoyed an Out Door Sitting and View.
We order a spicy fried chicken sandwich which was outstanding. Would recommend giving it a try.

The menu here has shrunk considerably over the years, so did not please our teen daughter—not enough options. Food was fine. Service was fine. The strongest element of the dining experience-good cocktails.

This was my first time there and I was very happy with it! Food was delicious, service was good even though the place was at full capacity. We sat on the outdoor patio where it was pretty loud but we could still hear each other nicely. It was a very enjoyable lunch!
