    The food was delicious. Service was a little slow and inconsistent due to shortage of staff. Food servers appeared to be disorganized as they were bringing some dishes to the wrong tables.

    The food was not bad but not great. The Chopped Salad with shrimp for $24 needed to be tastier. Hamakua mushroom risotto had generous amount of mushrooms.

    Lovely space. Elevated weeknight dinner out for a date or ladies night. One family was there with two small kids and their noise was too high for such a small venue.

    Lobster was like rubber. The toast for the ahi tartare was so rich we could barely eat it. Taro chips would have been much better. Way too much butter. The short ribs were actually gross. This is another over hyped place that is overpriced and doesn’t deliver good food. It is definitely a beautiful restaurant-but sadly that’s it. The fries were the only thing we enjoyed food wise.

    Breakfast on 09/11/22: Our server (the manager?) had an "I'm better than everyone" attitude, escorted us to our table and took our beverage orders, which took over 10 minutes to receive. He returned with our beverages, took our orders, and never returned to our table on his own. My Kampachi was skimpy and broth was too salty I could not finish it, my husband's Bahn Mi bread was soggy and fell apart, but my father did enjoy his Omelet. I had to wave down our original server to ask for my leftover to be boxed, and he replied in an irritated tone, "I'll get you a box", but never returned. I watched our server cater to this one patron sitting on the bar table where he immediately got his beverage, personally delivered his order, and then sat with him for awhile to chat. With no box for my leftover and no one to check on us, I had to wave down a runner to ask for a box and our check. I watched as the runner went to talk with our server (still chatting with the patron) and seemed to be dismissed. Several minutes later, the runner returned with my box and check, no "thank you" for our patronage or "sorry" for the poor service. We live just up the street and have been to et al. many times and up to now, experienced great food and service. This dining experience was terrible and I am so disappointed! After this experience, I would not recommend et al. to anyone.

    The beet course, lobster roll, and tagliatelle were superb. The chocolate tart was good, and the bread pudding was ordinary. Service was VERY slow, and the appetizer course arrived after the entrees. The waitress apologized and comped our desserts. It is a very noisy restaurant; the seating is quite comfortable.

    Enjoyed the ambiance, low key, casual, trendy. Menu was good food with local flair. Waiter very attentive and food came out quickly. Marscapone Bar was an amazing dessert; ordered an extra one for husband back home. Three entrees, one salad shared among the three of us, two desserts was $95. We will return.

    It was a wonderful time. Our server made some great recommendation and gave us the right amount of attention. I feel he understood what we needed,gave us time to enjoy the food and teach other. Next time I will get the lamb! We will be back and hopefully the server we got is this time will be our server again.

    I cannot thank the staff more for accommodating us and making it a special dinner for a 3 and 6-year-old. Everyone could not have been nicer in making the girls feel like grown-ups and allowing us to have a fun night. The food, as always is excellent and to have such a wonderful staff makes this a favorite neighborhood gem.

    Just teeny tiny disappointed in brunch plate presentation; pork bahn mi looked like sandwich was slapped onto plate; benedicts usually come in pairs so I was surprised to see just one soft shell benedict on a plain plate; flavors of mimosa flight didn't come through. I recall more memorable experiences when et al first opened. Extra touches do impress.
