Really nice space, friendly service, but the food sounded better in the description than it actually tasted. The execution isn't quite there yet, but there is potential. Based on my experience I would recommend as a place for drinks with friends with some small nibbles, but probably not a full meal.

There seemed to be no air conditioning (on a 90+ degree day) in the section of the restaurant we sat in although there was room to seat us in the air conditioned section. We didn't realize that until we were leaving. It was very uncomfortable. We relayed our disappointment to the hostess. We are frequent guests of the restaurant so this was disappointing.

Excellent food (hot chicken was stellar) though the desserts were even better! Wonderful service as server knew the menu and could provide recommendations. Only issue is that it was not packed and yet still very loud. Music could have been turned down a touch - but more important would be to add some soft surfaces or sound dampeners as it was just conversations, etc. that caused the most volume.

Food was good and server was nice. Not very crowded. About 1:30 into the reservation, the hostess came up and told us we would have to leave in 15 mins. This is before we even had the check or our server had asked if we wanted dessert, coffee, etc. really bizarre and left a bad taste in my mouth.

Ambiance and service were spot on! Our server was so sweet and accommodating. Beautiful place and a great place for photos. The food was okay. The lobster tostada was quite tasty but the ribs appetizer…I’m not really sure what that was. The lobster ravioli was good, but very salty. The drinks were quite good.

I’d return for drinks and pics.

My son chose this restaurant off Open Table. He seemed to enjoy his meal. He said the steak was prepared the way he liked it and the truffle butter and fries were good. I had the spicy tuna roll and a drink that was refreshing.

They generally seem under-staffed which is unfortunate. We reserved for 8:00 pm and though they quickly seated us, they seated someone prior to us even though we got there early and when they got us to our table, it was dirty and they had to clean it. Our server thought that a drink was out that wasn't and she had to come back and explain and they had ran out of wine glasses so I had to drink from a different cup. Another waitress was quickly coming over and spilled glass everywhere. When the food came, our server took away our appetizer that was only half-way done and we didn't notice until the end so they had to take it off of our bill, reluctantly it seemed. The food itself was good, but not great, especially compared to the Earl's branch in Boston, MA. The cajun chicken was burnt, not blackened, the coleslaw lacked seasoning etc. I ordered the steak + sushi and the sushi's avocado was so ripe that you could taste it. The steak was the wrong temperature (rare, not medium), but it tasted great. Unfortunately, it was luke-warm at best i.e. seemed they let it rest for way too long. The ambiance was beautiful, but the quality and service was sloppy for a place that charges what they do. This is not to say there aren't pluses, but I personally think they're overworking their staff and/or are not delivering the service you'd expect.

Great space. Lots of tables, large patio with couches and fire pits. The patio opens to a pretty fountain, and restaurant fronts. The food was average at best. My husband and I had the calamari (yummy), a spicy tuna roll, and the California burger w/ truffle fries. The server asked to space it out, but the burger came to the table 5 minutes after the shareables. The burger was overcooked. Decent wine and drink list. Service was slow, our server's shift ended while we were eating, so we were passed off to another server. (We then watched our server sit at the bar with his buddies and have drinks.) My husband waited almost 15 minutes for his last drink, which didn't arrive until we were done eating. Come with a group, have apps, and drinks on the patio, otherwise unless you live in the area, skip it.

The service was so slow we had to keep waving down people to ask for utensils, plates, napkins, and to see where our food was. The food was nothing special and the steak we ordered medium rare was full blown rare. Not worth the $$$.

Food was great. Service was terrible. Server dropped entire tray of dishes and managed to ignore us for the majority of our time there. Didn't bring appetizers before meal, no cutlery, needed to ask for salt/pepper, tried to get water 3 times. Self-service would've been a better option.

The food was very good (zen salmon bowl over greens and tuna poke bowl). The waitress was very good too. However, the hostesses were not very helpful. We made reservations and also called ahead to see about sitting outside. When we got there the patio was empty except one table. The hostesses said there was only one table available in the sun to us, and that all the others were reserved. Total misinformation; after over an hour no one came to any of the tables at all. We asked to sit at a table with an umbrella as well, and they said their umbrellas don’t work. Ok, whatever.
