Vegetarian Menu

Yes, a whole section of vegetarian dishes. We had a one-year-old and a five-year-old and four adults. The food was great, though the five-year-old had to wait a looong time for her waffle. The one-year-old loved her mother's pasta with pesto. Service was reasonably attentive though once you see... read more

Absolutely amazing food, the best kind, glorious freshness! I had the best tuna tartar ever, and the mofongo was to die for. We didn't expect it, as the place looks like nothing special from the outside. But the menu is extensive, plenty (!!!) of vegetarian options, there is pretty much the entire vegetarian section, which was unexpected and greatly appreciated.... More

Stopped here for a late lunch and only dined here based on the number of people we saw in the window. Not a normal thing for me to do. Ordered the chicken venice, and the muzzalla. The sandwiches were good but our water glasses ran dry. The restaurant had 4 staff members all standing around and no only paying attention... More

We shred the seafood and mofongo - a nice new dish for us. The seafood was good, the mofongo was a bit salty but maybe that is correct. The outdoor seating was nice overlooking the plaza. Our waiter explained the dishes. We enjoyed our evening

I recommend the tofu rican wrap, it was quite tasty. My bf had the smoked salmon sandwich which was tasty but skimpy on the salmon. The service was lousy, I had to find our waitress to give us our check. She didn't even refill our waters, and it's not like they were super busy. Lastly, the bathrooms stank like a... More

I went to dinner with a friend this past Monday night. We sat outside on the patio since it was a nice night. The food and service were average at best. The restaurant was in a cool location, but I was disappointed at how deserted the town seemed--I'm not sure if it's because it was a Monday or because it's... More

Food was good, very slow service, 1hr 20 mins waiting for food since ordered, not organized. We know this is a hectic week but it must be planned and well managed.

We have come to this restaurant several times and have had great experiences, which lead us to venture here for Sunday brunch. Got there at 9am, told it would be a 20 minute wait... An hour later we were finally sat. Another 15 minutes before our server came by to take our drink order. We also placed our food order... More

The space is tight, not much room to walk. The food was excellent. Went for Saturday brunch. Have to go back again.
