Food was good but not outstanding. Wine was very good. Noise increased as the restaurant filled up....became uncomfortably noisy. Convenient location.

We had a wonderful meal and the ambience was fantastic as well as the service. This was our 2nd visit and both times very pleased. We will definitely be back. The manager, Kelly, was very warm, enthusiastic and welcoming.

Their hostess is the icing on the cake. They are lucky to have someone so authentically warm and personable. I love GREAT food, great service and great ambiance- but it's the people that really bring you back. This restaurant is the best San Rafael has.

Hostess was lovely and friendly. The one change I would make is to place the TV at the opposite end of the bar. I was disappointed to see a TV in the restaurant though I get it is a nice attraction for singles or casual dining. I just don't go to restaurants to watch, see or hear a TV. If you have to have it make it more subtle please.

Service was good, pleasant atmosphere but the wine pours are embarrassingly small. Supposedly a 5 1/2 ounce pour but the large cup dwarfs the liquid.

Decent food, strongly recommend bringing your own bottle and paying corkage, which we didn't see listed on the menu.

The menu has changed and sadly we thought the quality of the food was not as good as the several other times we have dined here.

Food was good- it’s always very tasty , this time the service wasn’t.
Waiter did not greet us, simply approached the table and announced the specials- we hadn’t even been offered drinks or water: felt rushed until we ordered then he was inattentive and absent for remainder of meal.

I've been there before and I remember the food being better. The food was okay, but not great. My wife is not a big eater, but left hungry after ordering the Linguini and clams. Our friends did not comment so I assume their food was just okay as well. They are usually quite expressive.

The food was okay. Everyone was really nice. The prices are high, I needed to add salt to my steak. But it was fine. I don't need to go back soon, but id try it again.

A delightful find right downtown in San Rafael. Beef short ribs were succulently rich and with side of soft polenta was perfect for an early December evening. Warm, cozy, with welcoming young staff. A definite return to place.
