The star of the evening was the appetizer, scallops with bacon. It went downhill from there. I ordered the pasta and my wife had the pork belly. Both were not good and the service was really slow on a not too busy night.

A friend, my wife, and I really enjoyed this place. Food and service were first rate. I think the noise level was a bit high, but it didn't really interfere much with talking but could have interfered if it was just a couple wanting a sort of quiet evening out. This was our first visit so I couldn't select too many things from the list of things that would be recommended. More visits in the future, for sure.

All of our dinners were delicious. For me the citrus note in the burrata and beet salad was phenomenal, especially with the crunch from the toasty almonds. I chose the short rib and gnocchi. I expected more pasta than beef, but was pleasantly surprised. The blood orange sorbet for dessert was the perfect finish.

We went to kitchen 4140 for dinner and had a great meal from start to finish. The ahi appetizer was fantastic, a beautiful presentation and just the right touch of sauces to accommodate and not over power. The froi gra was amazing! Anytime we have a chance to enjoy something out of the ordinary we go for it! the beet salad was beautiful with just the right amount of ingredients to compliment eachother and not over whelming. Knowing that they use fresh ingredients from their own garden makes each beet and each tomatoe that much more hand cared for delicious and of course fresh! the ribeye in duck fat, such great flavor! Cooked to perfection and a wonderful crust on the outside made a delicious juicy inside. Not only was the food amazing the service staff were great. Everyone from the host to the server to the chef! Really cool vibe here we will be back!

My boyfriend and I went there on a whim last Saturday night. I got the gnocchi and he got the short ribs! Both were delicious... I think we both like the gnocchi better though! We got great suggestions from the waiters and things came out quickly! Loved the brussels sprouts! The apple and strawberry crisp/cobbler was delicious as well!

Enjoyed our dinner and appetizers, we shared the biggest steak I have ever seen in a restaurant. It was pretty loud inside though, and as we are on the plus side of 60, and appeared to be the oldest people there, we had trouble hearing each other through the noise.

We had a really nice lunch for my friend's birthday. I should have requested to sit outside on the patio in my reservation because the patio has great ambiance and it was such a nice day. There were no seats left outside when we got there. The service was good and they brought my friend a delicious dessert for her birthday. Really sweet.

The Brussels sprout appetizer was the best I've had (and I order them often). All four of us were very pleased with our delicious and well-presented dinners. Unexpected in a location right on Morena Blvd. You forget that as soon as you sit down.

Details, Details, Details no detail is too small. The food was great.....facilities are in desperate need of attention to details. I'm an avid consumer and have over 32 years of experience in the retail sector and extensive gardening experience....enough said....
