I completely forgot his name but we had an amazing waiter who recommended the best drink and always checked if we needed anything. Super cute place, we sat in the rabbit room and it was amazing! Would totally come back again!

I very much appreciate the ability to make a reservation to dine outside! We’ve been twice during the pandemic, that represents half of our dining out experiences since March. Our server was excellent and we were seated at an appropriately distanced table. The cocktails were very good and our meal was great. Wait time was a bit long but they were quite busy. I love the Angels on Horseback taco but really think there should be two oysters....one isn’t quite enough to have a good bit of oyster in each bite of taco ;)

What a sweet place. I had made reservations, and we had a wonderful seat outside, underneath a beautiful tinned awning. The service was excellent, the wine (a local) was excellent, and my consort said the beer was terrific, too. The service could not have been better. Even with people socially spaced out, it felt like part of a community. We had the tacos and a side special, and they were really quite good. Plenty of stuff for the vegetarians amongst us, too.

Great service, food took longer than normal but server gave us a heads up & apologized which was good. Noisier than normal outside because of a protester rattling on, no fault of the restaurant.

The service was extremely slow. We order appetizers and were finished for 20 minutes before our salads came out. Another 20 minutes until our tacos came out.

It was very busy and the waitress was very friendly, which was great. Definitely not her fault. But we had an extremely slow brunch, and they were out of the first 3 things we wanted to order. For the record, the hangover was a doozie. But the Bloody Mary I got didn’t help- it was very weak (and took 20 minutes which defeated the purpose.) The restaurant had cool vibes, and I’d be willing to try it again. But it wasn’t great this time.

Not the best table by the bathrooms (with a reservation) but enjoyed being away from the noisy part of the restaurant. Food good. Took too long for drinks (almost like the order got lost). Waitress not versed on opening a bottle of wine and then having the person who ordered it taste it first. Not really a wine bar so understandable but should know the basics. Probably wait staff overwhelmed by good weather and the patio being open. Maybe not enough staff I think. We enjoy the food and the overall restaurant concept so will be back.

Everything was pretty mediocre. Service was slow, drinks were "fine," especially if you like a little beer with a lot of foam. Food was okay...we had the burger and Halloumi salad. Meh😕

We had been wanting to try Diablo & Sons brunch. The Hangtown omelette and biscuits & gravy were solid. Less impressive were the tamales (a little dry) and the lamb sausage (bland flavor). Overall, the table’s consensus was the portions were on the smaller size. Drinks were solid and well balanced. We tried the Bloody Marys, plus a couple of the mezcal specialty drinks. We were seated in the “rabbit” room. Very cool, fun decor. Now the service . . . our waitress was really nice but missed on several items. On sharing that it was our first time in for brunch, she immediately started telling us about specialties on the regular menu that weren’t offered during brunch. She only realized it when one of our party said “I don’t see any of those on the menu.” She returned three different to let us know that three separate items we had originally ordered were now out, stating we could wait 45 minutes for the regular menu to go into effect at which time one of the items would be available (hmmmm). The last miss was that each of our four plates came out at different times, about 5 minutes apart. I would try it again - maybe it was just our waitress or just an off day for her.

The service was equally excellent. We sat at the Chef’s counter and the staff was engaged and very nice.
