There are some very good restaurants in South County, though the lane is quite narrow. Such a pleasure to have an excellent restaurant in this area that is inventive and delivers different taste sensations. My wife and I had two appetizers, two mains, and shared a side. Everything we had, including the drinks, was a 10. Looking at our neighbors dishes and their oohs and ahhhs made us realize the entire menu is a 10. Shoutout to Jake, our bartender and server, for great energy and service.

The food was amazing. Had leftovers and was craving the next day to eat. The Dominican steak was tender and flavorful and my husband had the chicken parmesan and he really enjoyed it. The bartender Ally makes the best drinks. Looking forward to our next meal. Parking was the only issue but at least they offer valet parking.

About the restaurant
WHERE STARS ARE TREATED LIKE LOCALS 
& LOCALS ARE TREATED LIKE STARS
The Café is a concept born of our family’s belief that a community is stronger when it gathers to celebrate, discuss ideas, relax, and enjoy. Our unique downtown location and partnership with the newly renovated United Theatre will yield an endless number of these memorable experience opportunities for years to come. The design of our venue, menus and service are a proper mix of aspirational and comfortable.

We are honored to be a part of this incredible region and look forward to having you join us.

We ordered the meat and cheese platter, local cod, and chicken dumplings. Food was amazing and felt cozy and delicious. Our seat was perfect view of whole place and the decor is simple and enchanting. Unfortunately our waiter rarely came to table, barely spoke to us, and he didn’t offer to take even an app order until almost 30 minutes after we were seated. It wasn’t busy enough to be ignored that long. Otherwise, would come again for the food/cozy vibe.

We had a wonderful time. The food was outstanding! My ceviche was delicious. Nice ambiance! I also tried a drink made with Pisco which was very tasty. I can’t wait until the weather gets warmer to go there and sit outside!!

New York style pizza was fantastic. Dough was soft and flavorful and sauce and cheese were very tasty. Service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.

We have dined at Cerviches by Divino several tinme and always find the food amazilng. We aboluteley love the octopus skewers and Arroz con Mariscos. My only problem was with the wine service. I ordered a bottle of Morgon which is a specific Beaujolais region of France and received a bottle of Beaujolais Village which is not a cru Beaujolais. We were charged $65 for the Morgon while we received the ordinary Beaujolais. which cost less than $40. This was the only glitch in otherwise excellent dining experiences.

It was a long time since me and my Wife has not been out so we decided to go to Saints…. The atmosphere and music and FOH people was great but the food…. I’ve been cooking for over 10 years and never wrote a review. I was very disappointed.. the calamari was SALTY I was not going to say something until my wife did. Then we ordered entrees the strip and burger. It was not busy at all mind you and my burger was OVERCOOKED. I ordered a medium and it came back well. They manager and several did a great job but maybe the kitchen needs some help or idk … overall we will not go back..
