Contemporary European
Two simple wooden doors open up to quite a buzz in an otherwise romantic courtyard, where a colorful crowd hangs at the bar and lingers at coveted patio tables. Inside, seats spread throughout the candlelit house-turned-restaurant with intimate furniture. Organic seasonal ingredients, creatively prepared and impeccably presented, characterize our unique menu.

The ambience in the patio was charming with fairy lights and a rustic feel to it. However, we got a table inside in a corner where 4 tables were wedged in together with no space to maneuvre ourselves in between them. Food was not at level with the exorbitant prices. Portions were huge though; I’m not sure if that was a good or a bad thing. Service was good enough. The place was Very loud overall: combined with the music and tables being So close to one another that we could follow anyone’s conversation. I was quite disappointed with the experience and don’t think I’ll be coming back.

Huge markup on wines, though meal price was typical of its slot. Dinner menu has something for everyone. Poor selection and quality of wines less than $90/bottle.

My Husband has dined with you for years and years and had not been back for at least 5 years so we decided to try it on a special night out to Los Angeles. Not only was I impressed with the beautiful surroundings and ambiance but the service and food was outstanding! It was my first time but not our last time to have more beautiful dinners there. It is like a getaway in the middle of a bustling city. My Husband thought it was still outstanding and still top cabin' and we will make it a point to drive there more often from Orange County because it is worth the drive.

We were never asked how are food was once it arrived and were generally ignored by our server. He was much more interested in new tables than tables that had already ordered.

We had been a few years ago and had a wonderful experience. This time we couldn’t be seated at the time of our reservation and were sent to the bar with several others who also had reservations. This was especially annoying as there were many empty tables.
Once seated, our food order had to be checked on several times by the busboys as the waiter was no where to be seen. When the order came out, several of the dishes were incorrect. Overall, there seemed to be s shortage of staff. Saw him when we got there and when we left.

Such a cute, romantic restaurant and host was friendly and kind. It was my bf's birthday and I expected more of friendliness from our server but she didn't seem like care much. She forgot our appetizer order and no apology and she didn't even bother to ask how I want my steak done. For the desert, she didn't bother to explain but bring the chalkboard on our table and stare at us. Food was okay but not such a great experience after all.
