    The food and atmosphere remains as fresh as the day ChinaLive opened. Every dish is exquisite-carmelized rather than greasy kung pao firecracker chicken. A totally new take on a classic. Green papaya and shrimp salad hit all the right notes: fresh, crisp, fire peppers, biting vinegar and just a touch sweet. But the surprise of the night was a sesame soft serve topped with mango shaved ice and crunchy treats. It cools the pallet and delights the taste buds. Great food -great evening

    We wanted a traditional brunch near our hotel and Open Table has Cassava as a recommendation. It couldn't have been better, with a wonderful croque madame (and really good fries), a great French toast, and a side of eggs and thick-cut meaty bacon. Everything was wonderful and the service was also great. The tip is included in the total bill, so there is nowhere to add an additional tip, so bring cash if you want to tip a little more. Oh, I almost forgot, the mimosas were way above average. Often a mimosa is a little warm, but these were really ice cold, served in a nice little coupe glass. Made for a perfect brunch.

    We had a late Mother's Day dinner here and had the best experience! Great food, great atmosphere, and PHENOMENAL SERVICE!! Pizzas were wonderful, pastas were outstanding!! MUST try the spaghetti with guanciale served table side in the flaming parmesan wheel!! I've never seen such big juicy pieces of guanciale before. Our server (I think his name was Mike) was so sweet and attentive. My mom loves to chat and make friends everywhere we go, and he was so sweet to her! Highly recommend !! Thank you Acquolina!! We will for sure be back soon! :)
