Went for Brunch and it was SO GOOD! The seasonal omelette was the best omelette I’ve ever had. I ordered a mimosa and it was a generous size. The restaurant is super cute and I will definitely be going back for brunch soon!

Great food and waitress was well versed (and made good recommendations) on the wine list. Highlights include the broccoli, maitake mushroom tempura coconut rice, and the branzino. The strip steak was ok...the tasted and ate more like a loin cut rather than a strip cut. Ambiance was great...good light levels and not too noisy. Will definitely be back!

I love this place. The atmosphere is modern cabin; it’s neighborhood friendly; the staff is great and the food is veggie friendly and tasty. It’s not a scene

This place consistently outperforms. Best salads I've ever had, imaginative menu, well-executed steaks and pastas, always with an original take. I like to sit in the small outdoor courtyard.

Menu was good, but my burger was not medium rare it was medium and I hate a burger that's medium. I guess I could give better numbers as the wine menu was interesting although if you're going to have such unique wines, you should have more than 3 types to offer by the glass. Sitting on the lower level with the kitchen above me, was awful with the light of the kitchen so much brighter than the rest of the place. It can definitely work out the kinks and I hope it does soon since it's within walking distance to my house.

went for valentines. Prefix was $75 a head (i made reservation a month out, was told of the prefix a week out).. figured it would be fine. a bit of a bumpy start.. Our table was mixed up. we were told we had to be out in 1:20 min.. then told oh actually we have a better table inside, but we were already seated and the garden was lovely. food came out a little on the cold side and was not bad, but not great either. there was a small little taste at the beginning, an appetizer of a single scallop. My steak came out way undercooked and it was so small it was only about 4 bites. Plus there was a big tendon or something inside that made it difficult to cut and more difficult to eat. after complaining they did bring me out a new steak which was VERY good.. but that and maybe the desert was the only thing that wowed me. With 2 glasses of wine our total price was north of $200 after tax and tip. Maybe it would be better to come on a night with the regular menu, but we left pretty disappointed, and worse off.. hungy. and that was with an extra free (4 bites) of steak!

Only complaint is that we booked the restaurant because there was no prix fixe dinner requirement for valentine's day stated, but when we arrived it was only a prix fixe option. Overall excellent but not worth the price.

I really loved the persimmon salad... the ricotta was delicious and can’t get enough of this fruit while in season! I also loved the coconut rice. Yum!! I’ll definitely be back:) I will say that the chairs were a little uncomfortable at the bar, so might not sit there next visit.

By the standards of excellent food, friendly and informed service and inviting atmosphere, this place should be packed. I’m kinda glad it’s not but it is now one of my all time favorites for a great meal with friends. You should come too.

This experience was a big disappointment. I have a garlic allergy and they were not able to accommodate this. Our server was friendly but told us there were only 2 items were garlic free and didn’t offer to have chef make something that I could eat, which is usually what upscale restaurants offer. I would understand if they were packed but we were 2 of 4 dining at the time. We ended up eating dinner rolls and leaving to find another place to eat.

Outstanding service, outstanding menu, outstanding price, outstanding ambience. The breakfastey salad with jalapeno dressing and rye breadcrumbs, add smoked trout, will be a recipe I crave constantly, try, in vain, to replicate at home, but ultimately return for. Thoughtful cocktails, super-fresh ingredients.

Really lovely space, good food and service. Very warm, private, and cozy inside. Honesty we felt like we were outside of LA, which, for locals, is a great feeling. Food was yummy. The beef tartar, sunchokes, sea bass, and pork collar were all fantastic. Plenty of gluten free options or dishes they were able to make gluten free. Will definitely be going back.
