The first thing I must mention is the cost. Very expensive. Portion size small. Service, very nice, but our server was way slow and possibly just forgetful or overwhelmed. Don't know what the problem was. If he wasn't so nice I was going to jump. My daughter, the vegan and supposedly very mellow was giving me the evil eye. Probably won't go back unless someone else is paying. Don't get me wrong, the food was good, but $$.

The staff was very friendly from the moment we walked in. The tiramisu was not what we expected (in a good way) and definitely worth trying. I would come back again.

Creative food laid back service. I tried the tasting menu and the variety was excellent, no one dish sticks out and none were bad. The smoked gnocchi was my favorite, though I prefer a lighter texture the flavor more than made up for the density. The banana cream pie dessert may have been the least successful, maybe a bit too healthy so the crust was dull in texture and flavor. The seaweed noodle dish was well done, but challenging in that the “noodles” kind of stuck in teeth and were well, seaweed. Very flavorful. My biggest concern was the 10 minutes before I was asked for my order and the slow pace of service. I dined alone with my iPad so the pacing was not to my taste. Also odd the bus person tried to save my silverware for the next course only once, when the next course was dessert.

The ambiance was gorgeous especially outside in the back garden area, not many people if you go early, the service was great. Pretty pricey so this would be a place only for special occasions, but overall wonderful experience.

I brought 4 of my closest friends to the restaurant for brunch. We were seated in the wine room, given our choice of music, given ample time to order and enjoy our food, and overall phenomenal customer service from everyone. This restaurant is such a gem!

A quintessential Angeleno hangout— the outside seating has romantic, mood-setting string lights and community table seating (though a couple of single family tables are available). Outside seating is first come first served. The maitre d was VERY accommodating and kind. Generally, the servers all seem very helpful and sweet and it looks like they all enjoy working with each other. It’s sort of rare to see this. The food was good— very unique and executed quite well. I’m not crazy about the kind of food but objectively this place is great: a god-send for vegans that everyone can enjoy. Would definitely return.

As soon as we walked in the greater with the long hair said we could not sit outside. I specifically requested outside and it was my birthday and i booked this a month ago. Then the female greeter magically said she had a table for us. So that was weird like the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing and they are standing right next to each other at that computer.
Great meal though you did nothing extra to make it special for my birthday which was disappointing. I’ve never gone out and not gotten a complimentary desert or something for a birthday. I did not want desert but had it been offered I’m sure one of my 3 sons would have enjoyed it.
We got our bill and it was wrong ( poor quality control) so that was annoying but our waiter fixed it, then came back and asked if we had a certain dish that wasn’t on the bill then proceeded to add that. It was a bit of a 3 ring circus. He should know what we ordered. He should check the bill before handing it to us. He shouldn’t then come back and ask if we had a certain dish and then add that back. That seemed very tacky.
So in all the food was great, the greeting no table outside scare was unnnecessary and the bill was a bit of a fiasco. I think training is sorely needed.
I hope a manager reads this. I’d love a text reply.

Great patio. All the food was delicious. They should provide complimentary bread rather than charge 16$ for an item that has bread. The veggie burger was lacking mass - quantity of the size of the portion, and, density - it turned to mush while eating it.

Food is delicious! Creative, inventive and great mix of flavors. Our friends are meat-eaters, and they really enjoyed their meals - they didn't miss animal products at all. We sat in the garden, and it is a beautiful and peaceful space encompassed in nature. A little on the pricey side for us, but worth it for special occasions.

We loved the experience. The food was delicious and the staff was attentive & knowledgable. We ate in the courtyard which was beautifully shaded by fig trees and added to the feeling of eating “whole” foods. We will return on our next visit to the area.

The service was not good, barely attentive. The restaurant looks a little run down. The bathrooms weren’t clean. The food was good but not exceptional, prices very high. Also the price of wine is ridiculous, nothing less than 20 for a glass! That is an entree price. Wine is not meant to be that exclusive. I won’t be back. Thank you
