    It was an excellent wine dinner. Didn't learn as much about the wines as I would have expected to, but we and our guests enjoyed the experience very much. Joe Blackburn

    Sat in a corner where they seemed to keep forgetting about us. Ordered the salmon and was told they ran out of it. Then ordered the chicken and was told I can’t exchange the cous cous for another gluten free side without an up charge. We left without eating dinner

    Scallop pappardelle was not good. 1. Bitter garlic 2. Not salted enough 3. Homemade pasta was cute, but was still raw in the middle and hard Octopus was good and crème brûle was fine.

    The new parking rules are a pain. Hopefully it will help business. The staff were very good in all aspects. Everyone enjoyed their main course. But appetizers and soup quantity was disappointing. The soup was probably about 3 ounces at most. The appetizers taste and presentation was very good. Quantity was inadequate. California state I have hope for this restaurant.

    The food was good but portions are very small which you don't know until served. Service was good but had to come back and advise they were out of a few things after we order. The secondary server provided more service than the main server. Cool vibe though.

    Fabulous food. Great owners and management. A place we try to regularly visit. Pork chop is perhaps the best in town. Lamb ragu, when available, is a must.

    Good food for a reasonable price. Would recommend asking for a table not towards the front of house as we had to battle crowds waiting for their table and watching us eat along with the cold air every time a door opened.

    Pork chop was way overcooked - charred. The Moroccan Chicken didn’t have much spice to it. The flat bread appetizer with beef was super bland. Choice of drinks very limited - soft drinks Coke or Sprite both ZEROs. Very expensive for less than mediocre meal. Won’t be back.

    Wow....how have I missed this restaurant when I have frequented the eateries next door?! Make a reservation ASAP for Santo. It's creative and incredibly yummy (the pork chop which was highly recommended was worth the high marks!) We had excellent service from the bartender, as well as excellent recommendations from appetizers to desserts. This is a small, cozy, and intimate spot where you can HEAR the conversation at your table (how refreshing!!) We will be back!

    Great atmosphere, and a wonderful cocktail menu. We had the roasted eggplant, garlic fries, beets, flatbread of the day as shared appetizers. All small dishes but worked well for a table of 6. Entrees that were ordered were Branzino, Pesto Bucatini with shrimp or chicken, and the Moroccan Chicken. Everyone cleaned their plates. I had the orange wine, can't for the life of me remember the name but it began with a B and it was delicious!! We will go back for sure.

    Service was great. Food did take awhile to arrive from the kitchen, but I think that’s part of the vibe. Modern industrial on the inside, not overly crowded. Would be great for a business meeting or date. Good low lighting. I got the steak frites and fries and it was cooked to perfection. Love the fact they have a salad + fries as an entree option. Espresso martini (I ordered one without sugar) was delicious and perfect. Thank you for accommodating such a request.

    Interesting experience Sort of tapas style… We ordered sardines and expected a couple of them with nice crunchy skin on the plate. But to our surprise we actually got a CAN of sardines! Great Scandinavian breakfast!! Although I prefer them with fresh lemon juice on a piece of toast. Cocktails were great as was the service so we left happy. But I don’t think we will frequent this restaurant.
