We were pleasantly surprised and impressed that they had an entirely new menu of wonderful choices - all different from 4-6 weeks ago. Our server was Christina - very attentive, helpful, pleasant. Very enjoyable experience.

Great food, small and quaint restaurant with indoor & outdoor seating. And there's a great Gelato shop 2 doors down.

It was my birthday dinner and it was a major disappointment. I ordered the pork chop and grilled vegetables. When served I received a well cooked pork chop but the vegetables and cauliflower mash were cold - not lukewarm - COLD!

The food here was very tasty. The service was very good too... very attentive ! What was odd though was the menu- or lack of one. We were delivered a strange drink menu that had no prices for the wine by the glass or beers. The only prices were for the bottles of wine. The food menu was just printed on a chalk board. Why not print a menu you can hand out (like you did with the drink menu) ?

A great local find in El Segundo. The food and service are always great and they've set up a nice tented area which is quiet and safe.

Each entree was delicious and plated so beautifully. The pesto risotto was wonderful.. the cheese plate was the perfect amount of food for 4. Lots of variety on the menu and lots of healthy choices.. Jesus, the chef was charming and hands on. we will be back!!

Hadn't been to this restaurant in many years and didn't know what to expect. Considering the COVID restrictions and that it was a very cold, windy night in LA, we were warm and felt like we had an intimate evening in the outdoor dining experience. The food was delicious--I had butternut squash ravioli with grilled scallops and almost ordered an entree to take home. Will definitely be back.

Limited menu (due to covid?), but all choices delicious. Service was excellent. I did think $7 for small amount of bread was overpriced. However, bread and unusual dip were delicious.

Very small place limited in seating. They only had 3 people working on a Friday night. They could have used additional helping hands. Food was very good but service very slow.

We were greeted by the manager and sat at a table under their tent...at least there was some shelter and comfortable for dining. Food came out hot and very tasty. Overall a very nice experience!

Nice, neighborhood restaurant in downtown El Segundo. Food was very good and the wine selection was as well. Not much more you can ask for in an outdoor dining experience.

The food was very good. Under the Covid circumstances, ambiance was outside seating under the heat lamp. The one waitress did a fine job considering the circumstances. The only thing that could have been better would be the temp of the draft beer. It was warm.
