We reached and the restaurant was being closed right before us, the person who was closing it did apologize and said the restaurant was dead so he is closing it early but what is the point of making a reservation if we reach there on time and you close it on us!!

We did our anniversary breakfast and dinner here. Personally, I enjoyed the breakfast a little more than dinner. We had an attentive waiter in the morning. In the evening, the supposed waitress would be joking around with the bar back a lot and not paying us much attention. Consequently, the bar back was very attentive to us and even have us complimentary champagne. Probably not the best venue for anniversary dinner. Great for brunch.

I wish I hadn’t waited so long to try this local restaurant. I was so impressed with the simple quality of the food here. There was something in the menu that appealed to all four members of our family... not an easy task. My daughter is still talking about the risotto. I’m going to have to make up for lost time and start frequenting this wonderful place!

It was a pretty limited menu. But everything we tried was great. Live music which is nice, but pretty loud.

Went here w/ a group of friends and had a blast. I was quite nervous when booking as this place is known for their breakfast + brunch and not their newly offered dinner service. However, I must tell you this place is a gem. We chose to sit in the outdoor patio, were greeted by Ray (pretty sure that was his name -- was drinking so I apologize!) and had a great dinner. Vegan options (vegan burger / veggie bites) for some at the table as well as some great meat options (steak / hanger steak ).

Would highly recommend -- corkage was only $20/bottle I believe. Had live music there and really a good scene.

Friendly staff and surprise live music was very pleasant. Food was not exciting, missing flavor.

The sweet potato fried were the best I've ever had. Amazing. The rest of the food was tasty. The service was just a little slow and surly.

Such a cute little place, and you would never guess it as it is so unassuming right there on Venice!

We went for brunch and it took a minute to get service, but once we got served everything went very smoothly and we were very well attended to. Not to mention that the owner actually came over to see how our food was.

I got the burger and my other half got the El Ranchero. Both were quite delicious and well-priced. The garlic fries weren’t the most amazing, but they definitely complimented the burger well.

We will definitely be returning!

The server was absolutely spastic. Made the entire room uncomfortable as he thunderously bowled his way through the dining room. Boo.
