    I did not have the greatest experience coming here. I believe it's due to poor training and lack of management skills. I asked for my meal without red cabbage or raddicio in it multiple times and let the server know I have a serious allergy. She brought my food to me and it had many layers of this, (later to find out pre mixed salad) after I had already taken a bite. I sent it back after informing the waiter. Before the next poke bowl came out the manager came to see about me. She did not introduce herself she just asked how I was after apologizing I told her of my allergy and she assured me that the kitchen would be made aware. The next bowl came out and before I bit into it I looked to make sure there was no cabbage or raddicio, yet again the was. Looking back knowing that there was a premade salad that was possibly picked through to get any cabbage out makes me think they were not taking my allegry seriously. The manager did not come and check on me until after I sent the next bowl back. She appologize and explained that sometimes things get mixed in the prep line which I understood but it still did not settle well with me. I was very disappointed in the lack of urgency and training this restraunt has. I do not plan on returning, thankfully no throat closing up however I left with a headache, upset stomach, and itchy throat.

    The food was good, but not great. The majority of our party ordered the cheeseburger. Burger was good. However, the beef sliders were dry and lacking. Biggest issue was with the service. Took a long time to get our drinks, which kept us from ordering a second round because we knew it was going to take long. Server would disappear for long periods of time. Not sure if we will come back.

    Our waitress so very inattentive. Our waters were empty. Our drinks never refilled during happy hour. The prices of appetizers during happy hour for the price was not worth getting. We shared spinach artichoke dip for $8 that gave us each 4 bites to eat. Pricey for the amount you get. Had we had a better waitress, we may have enjoyed the experience more. The food itself is cooked fresh, which we loved!

    We had our meals before we have our initial bar order. Seemed like a management issue. People could walk up to bar and get served immediately but took over 30 minutes at a table. This place is leaving a lot of money on the table with service that slow.

    I have been several times previously but was a long gap in time since last eating here. I was concerned getting a table would be difficult so booked in advance. Other than a challenge finding a parking spot since the nearest lot was full the restaurant was fairly empty which was odd for a Saturday night. A concert was going on at the Music Factory though. Perhaps having valet parking on concert nights and weekends might be a good idea and was suspecting many people simply gave up. As for our dining experience my girlfriend and I were very happy. Despite one of our servers was new and in training she was shadowed by a veteran employee which kept the ordering process running smoothly. We started off with a mojito and a top-shelf margarita accompanied with grilled brussel sprouts as an app. For entrees she had the chicken and I had the ribeye. Both were excellent and done exactly as ordered. Overall a very good experience and will be back.

    Great place to go to lunch! Not as many options, so that was kind of a bummer. I ordered the spicy fried chicken sandwich and it was a let down because it was not spicy at all. Although it was a very good sandwich I wouldn’t say it is spicy! But overall the food was good just wished it was actually spicy!

    This is a great place to go prior to an event in the Toyota Music Factory for drinks and food. Their happy hour menu is has various choices and their waiters/waitresses were very nice. They gave us a couple of recommendations for drinks and their favorite food. It seems like everyone there was enjoying themselves.
