    Food was way too little too salty. Been many times before in the oast and never had that issue so maybe an off day for the cook.

    Tapas style. Food itself wasn't that standout. Breakfast pizza and shawarma tacos were underwhelming, but french toast was good. The prices are not overpriced which I appreciated. Service was good and food came out fast even though every table was full. Overall, this place is for the vibes. Love the layout. I would come for drinks or if you happen to be in the neighborhood and checkout for yourself.

    Loved the host/hostess - gave us the best table in the house. Super cool treehouse/jungle vibe - food portions very small, but delicious. You’ll need 2 to 3 entrees each. Really enjoyed it!

    I hate to say this because the service was fantastic but the food was sub par. The pork chops were super tough and over cooked, the stuffed mushrooms were pedestrian, the cocktails were too sweet. I’m just sad because I like to eat pit to experience the food more than the ambience . So while the ambience was lovely and so was the staff (shout out to Phillip. He’s a star) the food was not worth the money by a long shot.

    The food left very much to be desired. The menu items are so basic that I was hoping everything would be cooked to perfection, elevated and flavorful. Sadly, the execution was basic as well. Brussels sprouts overcooked, chewy and tough filet, overdone pasta without much flavor though it was called “oaxacan”. The sea bass was really poor. My mom and I didn’t even believe it was actually sea bass, it was so flavorless and flat, like grilled tilapia from an all inclusive resort. The “best cake you’ve ever had” was the most flavorful item we had however, did not meet its claim :,( The ambiance is everything at this spot. Maybe the drinks are fantastic but we didn’t try them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    My partner went for lunch on Saturday. He ordered the grass-fed beef burger; it was generous in size, and he liked it very much. I ordered the Salmon pita; it was quite small, but delicious. The service was very good, and I liked our location in the gigantic multi-level patio. I should’ve asked to be moved, however, because the table immediately next to us was very loud and boisterous - which, I am sure was nice for them, but made our conversation difficult. I would definitely go again.

    The food was very good and interesting. We sat on the upper patio and there was fun energy up there. We were celebrating two birthdays and I noted that on the reservation. We were also asked for the names of the people with birthdays when we checked in. We were seated quickly and ordered drinks followed by food. It was lovely, but then our server kind of disappeared for a long time. He came by once to ask if we wanted a second round of drinks and we said no thank you. It was almost an hour before he came back with the check. We were disappointed that the birthdays were forgotten (especially because over the course of the night we saw several other tables get birthday celebrations). It took a while for our server to come back to finalize our check as well. We were patient and I can't imagine it is easy to have to go up and down those stairs all night. But the experience kind of fizzled for us.

    Our evening was a DISASTER. Upon arrival the front of house staff said they’d send up some free Prosecco for our anniversary. It never arrived. We were seated outside in a pretty twinkly deck. First impressions were good. Staff were sweet and friendly. Then, the cracks began to show… Food arrived not in the order we were told was planned. We were brought several dishes meant for other tables, all by different servers. There seemed to be no coordination of kitchen, servers and management. A restaurant should operate like a ballet. Seamless and silent. This was a total mess of confusion and exposure. Exposure to the faults, the flaws and the errors of the dining room. At one point the server asked what we had received and had not. We then roll called our order. Handheld software made this much less personal. It was all very messy and unromantic. Then a large dog, which was blocking the entrance next to our table barked loudly at a server as the owner failed to keep it under control. Why they had a huge dog at dinner I don’t know, but it upset the flow of our date night. It was all very skittish and awkward. The food was good but not excellent. Some dishes were overloaded with chipotle sauce. The menu is too long and repetitive. They’d be better to offer less and make it great. And focus on service and flow. Get the ballet back into gear. This restaurant was lovely when it was Cliffs Edge. Now it’s just a scam, hipster joint, with unremarkable food and painful service. No manager in sight. Nobody in charge. Our check was over $200 for two people without dessert. Too expensive, poor value, lazy and resting on its Silver Lake laurels.

    This is an amazing joint with a great vibe, excellent service, and great food served in small plates tapa style. Regarding the food: their chef is a wizard who puts an unbelievably original (and delicious!) spin even on the dishes that you think you know how they will look and taste like. Have been here twice in two weeks and will definitely be back again!

    We love everything about this restaurant. Four of us and we ordered 8 different dishes plus dessert, each one of them was delicious. We had a reservation and were seated after about 5 minutes. BUT THE BEST THING ??? Your employees!!! They are bar none the friendliest of any restaurant we’ve ever been to… all of them from the front desk to the wait staff to the person who worked so hard to have our heat lamp work. They are all AWESOME!!!! FIVE STARS!!!!!

    We had a fantastic early dinner with friends. Our waiter, Rob, was great and we want to have him again for our next visit. The food was outstanding, every plate. We loved the octopus, and will get extra orders next time. I loved the custard dessert, not your everyday recipe. We ate in the garden, a lovely space to meet with our friends and have cocktails and dinner. This was our second time, and we look forward to our third.

    The service was so bad it was absurd. After waiting 45 min for drinks we figured the food would come out quickly but our optimism was extremely misplaced. I think the food was tasty but we were all so hungry after waiting an hour plus that we just inhaled the half of it that was haphazardly plunked on the table. Our server (when we saw him, which wasn’t often) never apologized or explained the delay beyond trying to blame the bartender. No food or drink was comped although missing items were removed. 2 members of our party had to leave (after being there for 90 minutes) before all the food and drinks ordered had arrived. This was a bday party and I was the one in charge of making a reservation. I thought I was picking a fun and celebratory place but I’m honestly embarrassed with my choice. If your restaurant/servers/kitchen can’t handle the rush, don’t book so many tables. And train your servers better.

    Beautiful place. Food was mediocre at best, it was bland and eggs were undercooked with a lot of slimy whites. We got “bottomless” mimosas and our waitress didn’t let us know our 90 min time was coming to an end, one more glass would have been nice considering what we paid. We will not be going back.
