    Food and service was excellent. I will definitely dine again. We tried the lobster bisque, calamari, French dip sandwich, margherita pizza- ALL DELICIOUS! The ginger berry smash drink was very refreshing.

    I’m sure it would have been a nice lunch date, however we didn’t get to dine at all! The restaurant took our reservation on open table but upon arrival we found it was closed to dine in and only offered takeout.

    Had no idea this place existed inside Nordstrom Perimeter Mall. A wonderful ladies who lunch place with absolutely fantastic food! The little Gem Caesar was outstanding, with actual real grilled chicken on top. My friend had the Margarita pizza which was also Fantastic. We were both blown away. Cannot wait to go back. Shopping at "a Mall" just got brighter. Our server was lovely. Only negative...the hostess stand needs work. He did not speak, was dismissive and had an attitude. First impressions are EVERYTHING. To the restaurant....don't let the "wrong" people negatively impact your business.

    I took my mom here for an early Mother’s Day celebration. I had the cilantro lime chicken salad which was outstanding and the service was excellent and very attentive. It was pretty pricy for a lunch salad $15.95. It was a good place for a quiet lunch and we will probably return for another mother daughter get together.

    I absolutely love this place. The waiters are all nice, friendly and down to earth. The atmosphere is warming, calm and Earthy. The food is by far the best I've had in a while. Literally everything is amazing. My faves are the tomatoe basil soup, chicken baguette, shrimp cilantro lime salad, and the white chocolate bread pudding! 10 out of 10 would recommend.

    The service was good. Our waitress took good care of us. My husband's food was good. My pasta with chicken and artichokes was bland, had little flavor and was sitting in warm milk since this was not sauce. I asked for salt and parmesan cheese to fix it. The waitress offered to bring me something else instead but I decided against this since my husband would be done with his meal by the time I started.

    We went for a birthday celebration. The food selections were very good and the food was excellent. Our waitress was very pleasant and helped make it an enjoyable night. I would certainly recommend the restaurant. It was not loud at all, so it was easy for us to have conversations with each other.

    This restaurant is a gem. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The white chocolate bread pudding desert is probably the best desert I have ever had. The tomato basil soup is great also. My salmon, cauliflower and polenta is an entree to be ordered! I’ve been there many times and it never disappoints.

    We were a large table of 16 there for a couples evening out and relaxed dinner! Everything and anything that could go wrong did that evening! - The AC was turned off and we were seated at a Sunset facing side with the full sun in our face.... and the whole restaurant was empty. Oh well, that should've been a sign that something is amiss but we were a large party and couldn't just get up and leave! - Service was OK... food really so-so. As the host of this group, I scrambled to get us out of there by 9:30PM to get to another restaurant at 10PM - YES, it closes at 9:30PM on Saturday evening. The credit card wouldn't function and delayed us in a hot boiling restaurant until 10PM. I used to visit this place for lunch a while back and it was a great experience... but something has gone horribly wrong! The Manager did leave me a message the next day to make nice.... but they almost ruined an evening for us and the parents in the group had a date night. I didn't bother returning his call - We will not be returning to dine.

    I always order the arugula, corn, grilled shrimp salad which is delicious. I did need extra salad dressing because it seemed to be missing. And those croutons - just say "yes!" Kimberly was our server and she was perfect.
