    We waited a very long time to be served our appetizer last night but it was delicious when it finally made it.

    Fabulous dinner on the patio. What a gem! The Pad THai was exceptional, so fresh and light, and the carrot cake cannot be missed!

    Our waiter discovered it was our son’s birthday while preparing the bill. He retroactively comped our deserts and discovered our son had a $5 birthday coupon on his toast account. The food was wonderful and the service was way beyond excellent.

    The crust on the sourdough pizza appetizer was perfect. The Pad Thai and spicy broccoli were also excellent. Cocktails and service were very good. Fries and carrot cake were good, but not to the same level as everything else. Space is designed to amplify sound, so it was quite loud on a Friday night.

    Nice decor, although high ceiling and hard surfaces made for a noisy experience. Service was very good with main server and other wait staff really quick and attentive. We started with the Cauliflower Wings, which were delicious! The buffalo sauce was yummy spicy! My husband ordered the beef bourguignon and while he enjoyed it, we were disappointed to learn that it was made from Impossible Meat. In a restaurant of this quality and price, we expected it to be created in-house rather than a store-bought brand we could have at home. My Forbidden Summer dish was really delicious. The tofu was a tad dry, but the flavorful sauce, which I mixed around the bowl, helped. Black rice and chunky mango chutney were delicious! We each had dessert. I had the chocolate brownie cake with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Sooo good! My husband had the carrot cake, which was huge and delicious. Loved the different textures and the clever way the plate was decorated with a large orange circle of sauce that resembled carrot slice. The bill came to about $110, before tip, for one starter, two entreés, 2 desserts, 2 cups of tea, no alcohol. Overall, a pleasant experience. We will visit again!

    This place couldn't be more spectacular! From the vibe to the service, everything is top notch to accompany the *incredible* food they offer. Perhaps my favorite restaurant ever?
