The Tuna lettuce wraps were very good but both the beef and shrimp tacos were bland and the beef was really tough.

Ran out of items, like juice at brunch, and the service was barely there. And this with a 20% full brunch service. Used to like this place but at the price its underwhelming.

The chicken avocado wrap was served without Mozzarella cheese. I sent it back for the shrimp tacos and they were good. Perhaps figure out how provide more shade for outdoor dining because the sun was a bit much.

Our server didn't pay much attention to us after the orders were placed. Our drinks arrived after the appetizers and main course. It was difficult to get the attention of the wait staff to get water re-fill.

The service was adequate and several people were involved in bringing the food to the table, etc. the staff felt very disengaged and quite obviously not concerned with returning customers. Very much felt fast food rushed. The shrimp taco ($20) was decent, the sides with it corn/rice looked and tasted like they were from a can- not what I would recognize as “street corn”. My husbands chopped salad sounded great and looked great on the online photos, but was mostly just lettuce with very little of the “chopped” ingredients- almost no dates at all. The tomato soup was the best thing- how hard is that? It was all pretty overpriced for the quality and taste. I probably would not go back for the price. Our bill was $100 with one glass of wine.

Geeat food - the only service issue was the hostess sat us and we asked for drinks and they said they could not and the server would be there soon. The server arrived about 15 min later. Also when we wanted a second drink, the server dropped off the appetizer and never waited to take the order and the share plates were dirty and we could not flag down someone for new so we used the serving plates. Great atmosphere and great food but the attention to details for diner needs

Food was not cooked correctly. Our pizza seemed burned. The burger was dry and potatoes were not fully cooked. Overall the atmosphere and drinks were good but our meal was not. I think you should take the vegan double cheeseburger off the menu as its no very good.

I think some attention should be brought on the presentation. My "double cheeseburger" was yummy, but the plate lacked of color. A few slices of tomatoes would do the trick for example. An extra amount of sauce or some sort of beetroot ketchup would be nice too with the sweet potato fries.

Delicious. The sparkling peach tea was a great drink, surprisingly refreshing. The watermelon and avocado tartare was a combination I had not tried before, but I look forward to making it at home. The ancient grains bowl and teriyaki bowls had very different flavors, and both were bursting with goodness. The only mediocre part of the meal was the salmon- it was a bit overcooked and not flavored with the teriyaki in my bowl. For the extra $10 charge it should have been of a caliber equal to the rest of the food.

We had an amazing experience. We had never been before and were looking for a restaurant with good vegan options. We got a reservation easily, but wound up getting there early and just sitting at the bar. Lucy and the rest of the staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and gave great recommendations and accommodations. The price of the food was also very on par with the quality of the food. I would highly recommend.
