I had an amazing meal with friends while I was visiting San Diego. The ambience was incredible! 3 of us shared plates (4 small plates and a large plate)- and I’m glad we did so I could try more dishes. Every one was a dish I’d order again and again. Wonderful culinary experience.

Definitely a great experience. They were right on time with our reservation, the service was great, and the dishes were all really fantastic. The portions are small so be ready to order a few plates to share.

Such a great experience! They had a jazz band and heaters going.. I was outside and it was so lovely. The atmosphere was so comfortable. The bartenders were so funny and nice.

The food was great, but don’t be surprised when you get served a small entree when you’re ordering from their “large plates”, otherwise great food and great service.

Has been one of our favorites for creative delicious food and an upbeat fun vibe since we first tried it when it opened
The “small plate” selections are all worth a try, but for us the standouts are the kale salad, spicy shrimp, spicy tuna on crispy rice and a new favorite the lamb noodles !! We usually stay with the small plates which are amazing to share, but we have enjoyed the large plates at other visits and been impressed with them as well.
Deservedly at times can be a tough reservation during peak dinner hours but try going early or sit at the outdoor bar area or one of the 2 bars and you can’t go wrong
