At about $10 for the baby rib appetizer, we almost passed. But fortunately splurged and were rewarded with 2 perfectly cooked, crispy outside and great tasting medium large spare ribs. The macadamea crusted mahi mahi was one of the best i have had. Without any drinks, 3 entrees and 1 rib appetizer totalled $110 but the 4 some felt satisfied

Word on the street is the chef from Kapi Kapi is now at Barba Roja. Which explains why Barba Roja is awesome now! Kapi Kapi used to be great, but the service has plummeted and the food is horrible now. They tried to keep the same menu alive from the previous chef, but it is not the quality it once... More

Fodd was very good. Not cheap but very good food. The atmosphere was also nice. It's off the beaten path but with the trip.

Good food, we loved the relaxed atmosphere. Lovely pleasant patio style resturant to enjoy a hot evening. Calamari was delish.

Excellent service. Reasonable prices for 4 star dining. Creative fusion food. The calamari and mahi mahi were fantastic. Calamari was one of freshest and best I have had. Definitely get the chocolate soufflé.

The place was empty on a Saturday night. Since we got there we felt that they wanted to kick us out because we were the only table. The plates were served extremely fast, not giving chance to enjoy a pleasant meal. The portions were big and saucy. Not worth the money.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us. The atmosphere & staff were great. My husband and I were craving some meat after eating so much fresh fish in Cental America, so we decided our splurge night dinner would be Kapi Kapi. Unfortunately, my husband and I ordered the same thing, which was the churassco. While the meat was cooked to... More

We split the farmer's salad which was large enough for 2....good light dressing & a generous portion of feta on the side....Entrees of miso honey grilled chicken &... More
