The food and drinks were a hit or miss; the oysters were perfect but the cocktails weren’t great. The dessert was mid.

This is my third time there and the food, service and location are perfect. Except that $7 for stale bread not good but I guess the chef does not think we should have good bread. the service was lovely. Handsome, kind, attentive (but not too) waiter added to the event. So overall, if you are younger and like the noise and everyone talking loud to be heard, it is perfect.

We had to send our Palomas back because the bartender forgot one of the major ingredients (ginger syrup). The dirty Martinis barely had olive juice. The fries were limp, the arancini had no flavor, and the pasta that came with the scallops was chewy as if it had been reheated. It was Mother's Day so we expected great food, yet it seemed they had the B team cooking. When we arrived for dinner the music was jazzy, but then all of a sudden it changed to a mishmash of rock, alternative, pop - so weird. Two plusses were the scallops which were tender and seared to perfection, and the paella. Oh and the Basque cheesecake was truly delicious (and I am not a cheesecake fan). Seems the place needs a better manager or cooks as the menu has barely changed. And also a little bit of renovating; the benches can use re-upholstering. Hopefully someone will pay attention and bring it back to its great standards (and food quality matches its price).

Waitress took 10 minutes to bring one of us a beer. Scallop and linguini was a rip off - 4 small scallops. Sausage pizza had 3 pieces of sausage. Told the hostess and told the wait person it was my son’s birthday - still nothing and bad service. Will never go back and for the first time in my life will do a yelp review warning people not go waste their money.

We believe 4 wild shrimp for $15 is fair, given the high cost of wild, fresh shrimp. Our burrata is a 4oz portion of cheese, with 2 piles of chopped beets, and olive tapenade and mint. We believe this is a generous salad. Our paella is fully cooked when we bring it up to serve it, and we use smoked paprika and aleppo, with soffrito, making it almost spicy. Our sincere apologies that our food did not please you.

I like the paella and have had it before, but I hope you will consider a paella with meat, like the the traditional dish.

On your next visit, ask the server to consult with the chef for that day's options. Maybe duck or chicken?

We had 2 different waiters. Food came slowly and waiters had to be reminded. I've been here before and never had this kind of service, so I am hoping this is a one-off situation.

The food was expensive and mediocre for such small portions. There were points at which I waited 20 minutes for a server to pass by. The servers were not very nice to me. The ambience was fine but nothing mind blowing.

The waiter asked if we had theater and what time we needed to leave the restaurant. He did his best and we left only 5 minutes late from our ideal departure time. ade it to the show with time to spare. All the food was well prepared and the drinks were great! We've been here many times. Always consistent.

Our server never checked us on after taking our order and we had to flag down someone else to ask where our drinks were (we had already eaten our appetizers by then). It was restaurant week and I know they were busy but we didn’t feel taken care of by our server. I would go back only because the food was excellent 👍🏼

We are rebuilding a service team, and some nights do not go as well as others, despite our diligence and determination to staff a full team. Restaurants have taken a big loss in staffing since Covid, and some nights show that loss more than others. Please know that we are committed to providing excellent food and service, and most of the time, we manage that well, hence our 4.2 rating. Please say hello on your next visit, Chef Amy

Not on their menu and disappointed. Service was awful - had to wait a long time just to order drinks. Starters for 2 and dinners for 2 always waiting as they were not served at the same time - someone was always waiting for the other person to be served and eating cold food. A very disappointing and poor dining experience.

When I checked in with your table you said you enjoyed the duck, so I am sorry to see your unhappy review today. We are training new staff and working hard to provide the best service we can. We hope you can forgive the missteps and give us another try. Sincerely, Chef Amy

A really lovely well curated seasonal menu. Great vegan options, all the plates were bursting with bright vibrant flavors. Yummy inventive cocktails. Great for small groups, the pickle platter is always a treat. Reliable, inventive, delicious, the best option for local upscale food in a casual ambience in downtown Berkeley.

Their outdoor area had heated lamps which was nice as it was a little chilly. But their outside area is just out on the street. A makeshift space I think new due to the pandemic.

I realize that we are coming out of a horrendous pandemic, but if you are going to fill your restaurant fully, then you have to take responsibility to have the staff to manage a fully packed bustling place. We were seated and no one came to our table for about 12 minutes. No water, no menus, nothing. When our server finally arrived, she took our drink order, gave us menus and then did not return for 20 minutes. When she did return, we were just opening our mouths to order, literally, when she said she'd be right back. No appearance until 10 minutes later, when we desperately ordered, fearing we'd never see her again, only to be told they were out of one of the entrees, whereupon we just randomly picked another entree, afraid to take any time to reconsider, as she'd disappear and we'd be stuck with empty plates and glasses. We still have not received our drinks, nor any water, and we are 45 minutes in. When the food did arrive, it was tasty, this review is not complaining about the food quality. Our server did not bring any condiments (ketchup for fries, salt and pepper), and getting them took another 10 minutes and we were halfway through the meal. At no time was the Server acknowledging any difficulties, nor communicating any reasons for delay, etc. My drink arrived 3/4 way through the meal, which I then politely declined. We were told it would be taken off the bill. When our bill arrived, the drink charge was included, and we had to hunt our server down to have it removed. If you were making a movie about bad service, this would have covered all the bases. The only thing we didn't experience was a plate of food being dropped on us. Communication, and just human friendliness would have gone a long way to mitigating the challenges, but we received none. The manager did come by to ask how our experience was, and I did share it with them. I will not be coming back to the restaurant.

We just lost our manager due to a personal tragedy, and it has left us spinning to catch up. I can only say please forgive us. We are racing to restaff after the 7 weeks of Omicron, which forced 3 of our best staff to find different employment with steady wages that don't fluctuate every time a variant impacts sales. I am so sorry for the stress we caused you. Mostly we do a good job at service. My sincere apologies, Chef Amy

Neither heater was working on a 55 degree night. There was a 15 minute wait between every visit from the waiter, who seemed completely overwhelmed. Glass of wine came with lipstick on it, and it took 15 minutes to get a new one. We ordered the fish and it took 15 minutes to get word that they had sold out. Etc. The meal took 2 1/2 hours due to the service. With the exception of the delicious smash burger, food was quite mediocre.
