Love the restaurant but parking is a challenge and it was very noisy on Sat evening. Our waiter was superb. Due to the noise level, not necessarily a great place for a date---

Pasta was a bit undercooked, but the food was otherwise good. A great location in Woodinville's wine district, but on the loud side.

We sat outside at the curbside tables. People around us had their dogs with us which was very nice. We chatted with other diners and got to pet their dogs as we waited for our food. Our service was only a bit above average as the restaurant was "slammed". Everyone was pleased with their entree. Great place for an every day, comfort food type of dinner. Good wine selection too.

Great service but the Kobe beef dip I ordered was not very good. The beef was not tasty. It tasted like it was cooked yesterday. The au jus did not taste like it had any meat juices in it at all. It was more of a BBQ worchestershire sauce combo. The calamari was delicious and the mushroom sherry soup was great. Was a little too noisy for me. Cement floors and metal chairs will do that to a restaurant I guess.

Cranberry chicken salad one of the best I've ever had, even the half salad portion (nice option to have) was very filling. Greek and grains half salad portion also plenty filling for lunch. Flank steak nice addition. Very relaxing and enjoyable time.

We started with the fig flat bread and I just have to say it was just ok. Had we not added bacon per our servers recommendations, it would have been pretty bland. The wine is over the top expensive. A glass of CAVA for $12? I think that is too much. Our entrees were fine, but nothing special. I had the Basil Pesto pasta and it just did not taste fresh. Next time we will try some cheese and meats like we have before! Really fun place to go!

Normally delicious food, but not today. Ordered Kobe Beef dip! It tasted like bad BBQ! Bread was burned, au jus was more like a BBQ watered down dip and it was spilled into my side salad when delivered. I love this place and will be back but the description of this sandwich on the menu and what I received were two different things! Waitress comp'd the salad but ironically no one checked after food was delivered and we had an opportunity to begin to eat!
