This was my first time coming here after countless times walking by this area in Walnut Creek. I’m happy I finally had the chance to try it because it was very, very good. The waitress recommended us a cheesecake rolled like desert ( I forgot the name) and it was very good too! The guacamole appetizer was delicious. I order Baja shrimp ceviche and it was delicious. Overall great experience.

Good food. Reasonable prices. Excellent cocktail. Quick service. Dining room looks like a fast food "joint." Needs ambience. Very loud.

Great choice for lunch! Food was excellent. California roll and a crispy shrimp taco were on point. Server was super friendly. Sat outside so there was street noise, but not annoying at all. Only downside is parking. Otherwise, good food and friendly service. Look forward to another visit!

Our first time there. Everything we ordered to eat was GREAT and DELICIOUS!
Only thing that was off were the Kamikaze drinks we ordered. They came looking more like a vodka blended slushy than a typical Kamikaze which should look almost clear (only vodka, triple sec and lime juice) and served in a martini glass with a sliver of ice floating on the top.

We were celebrating both my birthday and our anniversary (which I mentioned on the reservation form where it asked if this was a special occasion) and nothing was done to acknowledge our celebration. So that was a miss too.

Otherwise, the food and service was great. We will go back.

I had the Lobster Roll and it was good. I love their Mai Tai's because they're made with POG (Passion, Orange, and Guava Juice) and it's delicious!

Food was very good. Service was right on top of things. We sat outdoors which was much windier at their location than we expected. Otherwise, great place to dine at.

The food is very good. That said, I was first informed that the 1/2 price wine sign at the entrance included glasses of wine, but as my wine was arriving at my table the waiter let me know he had previously been mistaken and only bottles were half price. (He gave me an option to not take the wine, but we lived with the regular price.) Also, a few minutes after I ordered the lobster roll, the waiter came back and said they were out of this. I was getting close to being totally disappointed with dinner, when the manager came to our table, apologized profusely, and gave me a comp entry for my next visit. I was glad they cared. I was even happier when our re-ordered food arrived as the food was quite good.
We will go back.

The food and setting was excellent. Took a little while to get our food for appetizer and mains considering how few customers were there. May have been short on staff. But overall, good experience.

It was unfortunately a bad experience... it took 20 mins for me to ask the waiter to get me a cup of water. 45 mins for the appetizer to come. The table to us had to cancel their order...
I understand the kitchen is busy but this is still not acceptable....

The kitchen and the bar were not communicating and so the food came long before the drinks and my dessert drink never came even though my guest had her dessert. It made for uncomfortable timing.

The service was adequate, but the food was just so so. The California rolls were warm and the shrimp tacos were unremarkable. We ate outdoors at a lovely table in the shade.

My 1st time here. Your Staff is AMAZING!! You should be proud! The weather changed and we came inside. They were helpful and made sure we were comfortable.
OMG! The Grilled Yellow Tail was WONDERFUL! The only thing was not enough non-carb choices (picked cucumbers,
Radishes, something fun) the Broccolini was good 👍🏾!
I’ll remember add them because you do serve them with other dishes (ie. Salmon mububi). Don’t worry I’ll DEFINITELY BE BACK!

Poor experience from start to finish. We ordered cocktails to start, but they were exceptionally bitter (which was not expected from a passionfruit drink). Then we ordered guaca poke to start. We asked if we should wait to order our main dishes, and the server said "no I will pace them for you." A short time later they brought our main entrees. We gently reminded that we had asked to receive our appetizer first (and had been promised it would happen) so they took the main dishes away and brought the appetizer. Only a couple of minutes later they brought the entrees back, but they were clearly the same ones they brought before, and ice cold. The server said she would take them back and have fresh entrees made. When she returned they were the exact same entrees! By then not only cold but old and gross.

Shame on management. If your server makes a mistake (which happens, they are human!) your policy should be to make a new plate. Trying to save a few dollars by returning the same cold food to me is bad practice.

The food was ver good but it took a long time to get to us. I think currently that Door Dash is the priority and the actual tables are secondary.

The place seemed a bit disorganized. Took awhile before our server came to our table. Our server was okay but the food was served warm, not hot. If I’m going to eat fish and chips, aka fried food, I want it piping hot. I didn’t complain or send it back because I was hungry enough at that point to eat just about anything. The soup we ordered never came out prior to the main course as requested. The waiter offered to bring it with our entrees but we elected to cancel it to simplify things. All in all, not terrible but pretty mediocre. The Margarita was good:)
