I really enjoyed my Birthday dinner with my girls. The food was prepared fresh with quality ingredients. We waited awhile for our drinks, but we realized they were very busy. The restaurant was full with reservations as well as a private event. I feel they did an amazing job with the volume of service during this time. The ambiance is amazing from when you walk in, sit down, go to the restroom, abs when you leave out. I will definitely come back.

Excellent service. Lots of great food options. It was our first time there but we're going to have to go back to try the other plates we didn't get to enjoy this time.

We had reserved a table. The restaurant had a lot of customers inside, which we couldn't see when we arrived. We chose to sit on the terrace. The lunch menu was very comprehensive, and we chose a dish including the soup of the day, half a sandwich, and fries or a salad. I have nothing but compliments to offer. The watermelon and tomato gazpacho was fresh and tasty. The turkey sandwich with avocado and lettuce was delicious, and the Caesar salad was fresh as can be. Garrick's service was impeccable. We finished with the peach pudding with caramel sauce, which we kept asking for: delicious! In short, a very pleasant experience for my husband's birthday lunch. We'll be back.

One of our favorite local spots. All of the food is delicious and consistent every time we come. The coffee is also fabulous for a weekend brunch, and the servers are so accommodating and kind! We are obsessed with the fish sandwich and gyoza chicken tacos!

The food was excellent and the portions were generous. If you want to be able to hear, outside seating may be best, it was quite noisy inside. Service was great and food was delicious. Highly recommend.
