Fabulous fresh food with lots of choices for vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian. We had delicious creative cocktails. Try the kale guacamole, based with avocados so don't be scared by the kale! So fresh and tasty. My husband and I had fish entrees, he said the fish tacos were spectacular. I had the Asian style bass fish with Bok Choy in a delicious Coconut flavored broth. All was cooked to perfection and our server was so friendly and informative. 5 star food with moderate prices, Check it out!

I went here for a business meal on a Friday with five colleagues. I knew we had to make out lunch meal quick, so I called the restaurant ahead of time to place our orders and have them prepared by the time we arrived. We arrived and we literally sat down and the food was served to us. It was pretty amazing service and we were in and out of the restaurant in less than an hour. I namely chose the place because they have a variety of healthy options, especially vegetarian ones. It’s also a pretty lively place, so it kept the conversation light and lively.
