    Some of the best mussels and scallops I've ever tasted. Bryan was an outstanding waiter -- we'll be back.

    We loved Quartino’s. Outstanding place and the food was too good. We shared about 6/7 dishes for 4 of us. The mushroom pizza was delicious and very fresh. Tara made us feel special and explained the many very well. Even when back and couple check on a few things for us. She remembered our names. We were there for lunch on Saturday and most of the tables were full. Recommend doing a reservation.

    Outstanding evening sharing small plates at Ema. Beautiful airy space (especially when open to patio on the warm day), impeccable service and delicious food. Bridget did an excellent job with the delicate balance of giving us space and time while also being attentive - checking in unobtrusively as we were talking. The new hamachi crudo (with strawberries and rhubarb) was delectable, and the new "Bhel" hummus sounded a bit crazy when we read the description, and ended up being our favorite dish. Taking a pause and looking across the dining room we could see the team working together - even managers helping to serve - to ensure everyone had a seamless experience. Going out to eat is as much about that and the atmosphere as it is the food - and Ema delivers on all 3.
