Second time here, and it was packed. Happy we made a reservation. Sat outside on the beautiful patio in the shade, 90 degrees out but nice under the umbrellas. We had chicken palliard with greens, grilled salmon salad, and chopped salad, with a basket of fries to share. All were delicious and just the right amount for three. Service was excellent. Lots of free validated parking. A great day with my lunch girls!

I brought a friend for her 60th birthday celebration dinner and made an advance Res. We were early for our Res and sat at the bar for a drink. The hostess was polite and friendly and at 8:30pm seated us at a low table outdoors, a great spot for cocktails but the table and chairs were too low to do dinner properly. I asked to move to a more suitable table with higher table top and the hostess was kind to accommodate. Dinner service felt rushed but the server was polite, professional and friendly. However at no time did any staff member wish my friend a happy birthday or offer a special dessert, etc..

The food was good but not great and the room was incredible busy and loud. Would I go back? Probably not.

Great vibe and ambiance. Food and drinks were good, creative, and fresh. Nothing spectacular. The 12-minute biscuits were the most memorable. Service started strong but, dwindled half way through the meal. Overall good experience and would return.

Arriving about 40 minutes before sunset, we began dinner with a couple of drinks which were amazing. Followed by food which provided a highly detailed description from our server, which was greatly appreciated. The only other thing other night was a random feather that landed on the plate of the car neighbor sitting next to us, there wasn’t even a bird flying overhead is quite interesting. Overall great experience. I would highly recommend wearing pants and covered shoes and maybe a long sleeve shirt if you’re sitting outside because the bugs us up; maybe some bug spray as well

Party of 7. Seated quickly at picnic style table. Not the most comfortable backless benches. Been a number of times before. Creative menu. Good food and ambience. Good service by server Taylor and assistant Juan.

Easy parking. Nicest staff. Great food. They don’t rush you. Food is swell. Big portions. And pretty. Beware of picnic table seating with benches. We need chairs with backs. We go back over and over.

We had a wonderful lunch experience sitting inside. The noise level was a bit loud but other than that, everything was great. I highly recommend the steak salad.

Such a beautiful setting!!! Perfect “Ladies Lunch” spot!! We each had a different salad and everyone was very satisfied. My Caesar salad with salmon was excellent although it said it was Kale, I don’t believe it was - which was fine. The greens were very fresh and the dressing was perfect!! We will definitely be back!!
THE ONLY NEGATIVE COMMENT IS THAT THE HOURS ARE NOT VERY CONVENIENT AND NO FLEXIBILITY

All was great... our only suggestion is to not cook the fried chicken so much. Seems like it was prepared earlier in the day and then reheated. Also need some dark meat (thighs) The white meat was very dry. All white meat and no dark meat.

All else was perfect. Jake our server was over the top. A real keeper for sure!

It was a lovely day and delicious meal. The brunch menu is quite different than a typical menu, but has something for everyone. The Bloody Mary and Mimosas were also delicious. It was our first time there for brunch, mostly have had dinner and lunch there. Very busy and upbeat atmosphere, def make a reservation. Nice combo of indoor/outdoor dining.
