All the waitresses and waiters seem to be super friendly. They were very educated about the food. We had some kids with allergies and they did great.

Food was amazing, hostess accommodated us to a table where our 8 month pregnant friend could adjust the table to how she needed it!! but after our appetizer came out our waitress wasn’t very attentive. She was very nice, but also didn’t ask how the check should be split? We ended up just paying it on one persons card and venmoing that person. Would definitely come back though! Highly recommend the salmon!

Birthday. Great service. Great food. The only thing I would change is that we were seated next to the door going to the outside tables and the door was propped open part of the time and it was very hot. Door should be kept closed to keep indoor seats more cool. Everything else was great!

Very healthy food, great outdoor patio seating, relaxed environment. This place is walking distance to Trader Joe’s and 5 minutes to the Greenhills Mall. Great for a chill date night. I have a gluten allergy and they had great choices for me. Overall, I’ll be back to this restaurant and recommend it to anyone looking for healthy food.

Delicious fresh food with a great patio. Server could easily have been overwhelmed as it was super busy but he handled it all very professionally and checked on us or updated us if he was going to be scarce for a bit. Try the lettuce wraps & shrimp tacos! Yum!
Speakers playing music were right behind us (near the elevators) so we were blasted with music at times but not to the point of complaint. One of us wears hearing aids - maybe just sit further from the front door of the restaurant.

Overall, food and ambiance was great. Our service was pretty slow though. Not sure why because someone who came in much later than us (sat next to us) got their food in a fraction of the time, and it was less crowded when we ordered. We were there for 40 minutes before we were served. We didn’t order right away, but that was only because our server didn’t come back for a while. Others still good their food much faster. The banana pancakes were amazing as well as the bowl with grains and poached eggs.
