Ended up at this jewel of a place at the recommendation of a friend who's been dying to go. My daughter and I sat at the bar to take advantage of the happy hour and enjoyed two sangrias each. One red and one white...don't know which was better because they were both delish! We opted to share several (actually many) small plates and enjoyed each one of them. Definitely worth checking this place out not only for the food but it's wonderful ambiance.

Although the food was good the menu was strange with heavily sauced and spiced food. Three out of four of us ate small plates instead of entrees because of this. The room is dark with no table cloths and little atmosphere considering the price of the food. A very pricey meal and not a full dinner. Desserts were good.

Great little gem. Never made it to a main course, my wife and I had 4 small plates and they were all excellent. You can tell the food is cooked with passion. Highly recommend this place. Reservations needed.

Changed reservations and they accommodated us. The service was great, we all ended up ordering the Korean short ribs and we cleaned our plates. It was phenomenal. We had a blue berry cobbler for desert and it was great. All in all great restaurant with great service and excellent food.

Delicious food and great service. Nice outdoor patio area. Nice and breezy with good fans blowing to keep it cool. No overhead coverage so if it rains you have to head inside. So do a weather check if you plan outdoor seating. Great spot will definitely go back. The staff is in sync they work nicely together.

The service was excellent. The food was average, not a good value considering the price. The ambiance was average, wooden chairs were not the most comfortable.

It is Restaurant month so we took advantage of the special menu and loved it all. It was a tough choice since there are so many other appetizing choices - so - we realized we will have to go back soon.

We went tonight for our 20th anniversary celebration and we were so pleased. We did several small plates and each and every one was fabulous and unique. We met Chef Keith who was humble and kind. We highly recommend this restaurant as every morsel from appetizers to dessert as well as the wines were delicious. Our waiter was great as well.

Food was good, we were there early, place was empty and our server was not very attentive. Tip was added because we had a larger group which is fine if the service would have been better. Don’t get me wrong, I love the restaurant, maybe he was just having a bad day. He was polite.

Service was great! We got our table early and our server took care of us. The food could of been better unfortunately, I ordered the short rib and it came out dry and my mashed potatoes were all crumbly (which is kinda weird). We were super excited to try out this spot but it didn’t live up to the our expectations. Who knows could of been an off night but still it’s almost $30 a dish!

The evening was disappointing and it's the restaurant fault. Their website says nothing about corkage but I've brought bottles to the restaurant before with no issue. I brought a bottle of Far Niente 2018 chardonnay and the waiter said he couldn't open the bottle because they have the same bottle/year on their wine list. OK so I ordered a bottle of Grgich Hills Cab and they said they were out of it and offered a bottle of Peju, which I've never heard of. At this point I would have though they would have opened our bottle but they didn't offer. I ordered a NY strip and it was very good. If a restaurant is going to have a corkage policy they should at least have their wine list up to date on their website and clearly state the policy.

We sat outside which was so beautiful! Definitely the highlight of the night. Unfortunately they only have fans on one side of the walls so if you’re sitting on the side closer to the fans you don’t get any breeze, so half of our table was super hot and sweating (even tho it was 9pm). It’s a bit loud too between the fans and the music, so we had a hard time hearing each other from own end of the table to the other (we where a party of 8 so it was a larger table which also affected it I’m sure).
The food was overall really good except for a few things. The clams didn’t have much taste, so they where not enjoyed much by our table. The burrata and peaches also was a bit underwhelming. And the Pappardelle bolognese could also use a bit more flavoring (maybe a pinch more of salt to take it over the edge? Also we weren’t offered any Parmesan which would’ve probably brought the saltiness back in and given me that bit of umph it needed) but it was good none the less.
The service towards the end of the night was slow, I believe it was us and maybe another table left by around 10:30/11 and all I could notice was people cleaning around us to close up. The poor waiter seemed like he was doing 700 things at once. None the less we all had a great time and the food was overall very good.

Food was ok. Had the chicken and corn waffles, charcuterie board, halibut, and spare ribs. Everything was just ok. Unfortunately we sat outside and we were harassed by flies during the entire meal. This ruined the experience and we won’t be back.
