    Highly recommended restaurant due to the beautiful interior and each room has its own unique experience but unfortunately I didn’t realize seating outside you get the view of the tennis court. Definitely not what I was expecting. It was extremely disappointing. However the service was beyond amazing and the food was yummy.

    We went to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant is located adjacent to the Toluca Lake Tennis Club, so our table had a view of a tennis court, not exactly the most romantic setting. Since we dined on a Friday evening, we were limited to their weekend prix fixe menu. The menu consists of your selection of three ($65) or four courses ($75); wine pairings ($35 & $45) are available. Overall, I found the food, including the wines paired with the various courses and the desserts, decidedly average. The service was excellent, even if the food and setting was not.

    Didn't understand why they had two waiters taken care of us that weren't coordinated with each other. Didn't understand why each waiter had a different type of mask and our waiter couldn't seem to keep his mask on his nose and kept pulling it up with his fingers, why bother. Didn't understand why when my girlfriend and I both ordered the exact same salmon, hers came cooked perfectly and mine was raw inside.

    What a hidden gem! Incredible service from the moment you walk in and the deco transports you to a lovely Mediterranean villa. Our server and back-waiter were fun, informative, and phenomenal. The food was equally delicious and inspired. Very fresh ingredients and everything was well seasoned to perfection. The desserts were sublime. A wonderful dining experience that I highly recommend.

    This was our first experience, we will most definitely be back. Firstly the level of customer service from the minute you enter the building to the ‘thank you’ on leaving was second to none. Apparently our appetizer was running late, as shared by the incredible Sommelier then informing us he would bring a complimentary wine pairing for our next course. The food is delicious and generous in size. The building and decor are beautiful. Thank you for helping us celebrate our anniversary in such memorable style, we will be back!

    Loved my dinning experience here!!! Will definitely be back - the service was beyond amazing and everyone is so caring and attentive. Food was delicious and I do have some recommendations!! Make sure you try the Warm eggplant, albacore tartar (wish it was a slightly larger portion), tagliatelle pasta, roasted carrots and the pan-seared ora king salmon. Wasn’t too thrilled with the octopus and the hand-cut fries. My salmon did have few bones but that’s fine. For drinks try the “It takes two to mango” and “when life gives you lemon grass”. For dessert we had the crème fraiche cheesecake and it was superb. Well done!! All in all such a spa like vibe here with exquisite design and decor. It’s great to bring a date, special occasions or a relaxing vacation vibe dinner.

    Great ambiance and super Friendly staff :) They have a great drink list as well as an extensive wine list. Parking was fairly easy. Loved the all white decor. We didn’t have room for dessert, so next time for sure. Keep in mind they have a set menu on weekends. You choose either 3 or 4 courses. You can add on or have customizations of course.

    Turns out our friends are pickier eaters than we knew. They don't like sauce or anything very "adventurous". My friend's grandmother husband was disappointed the lamb pasta dish was not on the menu! I'd prefer the freedom to order from the menu rather than a Prix Fixe format. I missed the bread usually served w the meals!

    Came here with a large group for Mother's Day Brunch and honestly were very disappointed. ALL of us were disappointed. It was completely overpriced, all of the food items tasted so bad, and all of us left still hungry after a three course meal. The steak tartar was terrible, the shakshuka had too much going on you can hardly make sense of what you're tasting, the steaks were all burnt, the Salad Nicoise ahi tuna was tasteless with bland potatoes in it not even seasoned at all, they ran out of the desert that most of us wanted, and supposedly ran out of chipotle aioli. The bloody mary's were so salty all you can taste is salt with zero alcohol. As much as I don't like leaving bad reviews, this is just needed to say, because I will never come here again and will save anyone else from wasting their money or appetite here.

    The Receptionists accommodated our request to move up our reservation a little earlier, the food was great, and the service awesome. Everyone treated us like special quests and made my wife feel great on Mother's Day! Our server Dean (and his assistant Alicia) was great and offered helpful advice on the drinks we had and even let us sample them. We are planning on coming back soon to try the other menu items or to plan a party there. Thanks for everything!

    We had an outdoor reservation, but at our reservation time we were told there was a wait for outdoor dining. You’re forced to do a prix fixe menu on Friday/Saturday nights. Farmers market salad was flavorless and the pears in it were not ripe at all. The eggplant appetizer was good. Everything else we got was just “fine”. Not great. Not awful. I had been dying to try the place for a while. I won’t be back. Not worth the $.
