I ordered a Wedge Salad and a Burger, I said no tomatoes and they brought me the Wedge salad with tomatoes. I just ate around it. Other than that, they were pretty good.

TOOK ALMOST AN HOUR TO GET OUR FOOD. ASKED FOR BREAD, SERVER WALKED PAST TABLE TWICE WITH BREAD AND SERVED OTHER TABLES. A TABLE NEXT TO US CAME IN MUCH LATER THAN WE DID. THERE FOOD WAS SERVED IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES. THREE OF THEIR ENTREES WERE THE SAME AS OURS

We were seated right away but waited for almost an hour to get our food. I had to send back my bucatini. It was too salty. They replaced it immediately.

We were a table of sixteen. Lots of other large groups too. I think they do better with smaller tables. Seemed a little pricier for the food received than I remember from past experiences.

Food was really good. My wife and I had the evening specials, she had the fried chicken and I had the pork and beans. Chicken was tender with nice, lightly fried breading. The pork and beans were stepped up with tenderloin, house-made pickles and not overly sweet beans. There was a fairly large party ahead of us that slowed down our service a little. The guitar player was a nice touch, very talented and not to loud that we couldn't hold a conversation.

It would depend - the acoustics are really awful - so loud, hard to talk with table partners.
Very small servings at dinner time.
Our service was really lacking.
Bread - great
Wine selection - very good

The seared scallops were perfectly prepared and the Kung Fu Girl Riesling was not too dry nor too sweet. The music was lovely. My only complaint is at dinner, the room can be quite noisy. Our server was terrific and was extremely knowledgeable about the food, beers, cocktails and wine.

Place was just ok. Service slow, waited for drinks, dessert, which kitchen was unable to make. Food (short rib) was cool, had to send it back to be reheated. Lobster Mac and cheese was so-so. Music good. All in all, will not go back.

We have dined several times there, and service has been excellent. I have had excellent meals, and a few that I have not been good. We will go back and order something different. But my last experience I was not impressed

The service was excellent and friendly. The food was good but not exceptional. My husband had the spaghetti and my mother and I shared the ribeye. The steak was cooked correctly but wasn't very warm. The mashed potatoes were dry. We had the bruschetta for an appetizer and it was excellent!

We've been here several times and have never had a complaint. The servers are always very friendly and attentive. Plenty of beer, wine or cocktail selections. We've had several things off the menu at various times but our favorites are the short rib, the grilled meatloaf and the scallops. We've had a couple of variations of fried chicken when it's been on special and it's been perfect each time. Had a couple different steaks and each was cooked as requested. We recently went there for our anniversary and they comped us a BIG piece of chocolate cake that we had no business eating but did anyway. One of our favorite, if not our favorite, spot to eat in the west valley.

Surprisingly good food, great neighborhood find, house Cabernet was excellent. Noise level was very high, that's the only negative but it's minor all things considered.

I don't think the food was up to normal standards this time. The braised short ribs were dry and different from I remember them being like in the past. The rest of the experience was great.

Great local spot in Verrado. Food is terrific, drinks are large and everything is fresh. Menu has small plates and large plates so you can choose based on your appetite. Service is good based on the size of the crowd but it is not a quiet place to eat.

Waiter was helpful with the menu making several suggestions. My husband had a sausage and pasta dish that he really enjoyed. I had the scallops. Four large scallops with quinoa and a purée. Scallops were a bit salty but the mixture of the quinoa and purée on top of the scallops cut the salt back.

Love, love this restaurant. The menu has both classics and unique offerings.
My husband's ribeye with gorgonzola butter was outstanding. My seared scallops were fantastic.
Our server was wonderful. The music and noise level can be a bit much at times but manageable.
Overall two thumbs up on a consistent job - my 4th time.

We showed up a bit late for our reservation and the dining room was open. Edgar was our server and he was amazing! He made great recommendations for us. We ordered a bottle of wine and they were out of it and offered a similar bottle at the cost of the one they were out of, which was a very nice touch. It was the first time I had dessert here and the bread pudding was over the top, 10 out of 10!

I went with my husband for the first time on a weekend evening. They have a great seating area outside and comfortably spaced seating inside. The service was phenomenal and is what will bring us back. They have a trendy drink and dinner menu. Food is a little over priced.

Menu is a little bit limited. Wish they had more appetizers to choose from. Several items on website menu is not on menu at the restaurant. Was hoping to get octopus appetizer again but wasn’t on menu. Website says they have muscle appetizer but been there twice and still not available. Food is excellent but the place is EXTREMELY noisey- can’t carry on conversation without yelling.
