Service was spotty at best. Took 10 minutes to be asked if we wanted water or a drink. 10 minutes after ordering our drinks and food at the same time, the table next to us was seated and informed of the special for the evening. I had asked our waitress prior to our order if there were any specials this evening and she stated no. We felt a bit like second class citizens. Setting is beautiful, but I wish it was still SODO. Much better service for the customers.

This is one of my go-to places. Friendly & open to special orders. Kale salad and dressing are great. Fine soups, sandwiches, and grilled protein. I've a number of food allergies and this is not a problem.

The food was very good but it didn’t go with the super casual atmosphere. They need to either make the menu more casual or the restaurant more formal.

They did a wonderful presentation on their Easter brunch. The complimentary offering of scones and mimosas was appreciated (and they were delish!)

The food was AWESOME!!!
I'd highly recommend the rock candy short ribs.
The only thing I wasn't a fan of was that they played country music the whole time. Not sure if that's a normal thing here or not.

First time here and will be back. Met friends for dinner on NYE. Venue had a great feel. Casual yet refined, friendly service, excellent scallops, burger was one of the best. Drinks were on point. The only criticism was the fried prawns were over cooked and had to be sent back. Everything else was excellent and everyone at the table said they’d come there again and can’t wait to use the patio.

This was our 3rd visit, and overall the food, service, and ambiance continue to make this a very nice place to dine. I ordered the curried lentils, and while i felt the lentils were a little too firm for my tastes, the flavor of the dish was delicious. Others at our table enjoyed the pork chops and burger very much. Even though it was New Year's Eve, and they were busy, we appreciated that there was no pressure from anyone for us to leave as soon as we were done eating -- we enjoyed lingering over discussion and drinks while waiting for the new year.

As a first impression, not too much change between SoDo and this restaurant, but it seems less welcoming as a dining room (a bit of color would go a long way). Very friendly, knowledgable and attentive staff. The trout as a mains was wonderful, with nicely done pieces of semi-exotic vegetables. The dessert was every bit built for two people. We really need to try this place for lunch...

This restaurant, formerly SoDo, is under new ownership, with a new approach to food. I was a little skeptical because we loved the former so much. Let me just say that they've kept the best of what they had, including key staff, and have expanded the menu in interesting ways. The food that we had was creative and flat delicious. We'll be back.

I was initially bummed to find out that SoDo was no longer; but I had such a good experience that I forgot to ask why. I originally chose this location as SoDo was the perfect place for a date. Candle lite, fancy tablecloths and plate settings, and a mellow glow.
I really liked the vibe of the new restaurant, felt like I was in Los Gatos. Great menu in design and consumable options. The Mac N Cheese was decadent, and the lemon cake was LIT!
My water was never empty, Thanks to Steve; whom I have been served by at multiple restaurants in the past. He also only charged me .06 cents for my meal; which I regrettably notified him of instead of signing the receipt. Haha
Overall a wonderful experience for a first date, and you guys helped me get a second. So thanks.
