Interesting menu well presented

This place buzzes, and offers very good pizza and unusual sharing plates. I really enjoyed the wild mushroom plate in particular. It was a last minute decision to come here, and we had to wait for almost an hour to get a table (which we spent having a drink at a nearby cafe), so booking is... read more

Love this farm to table place. Creative menu with good vegetarian options, great brunch cocktails, try the breakfast pizza with an egg on it. Check out the bench made from belts. You may need a reservation, plan ahead, can get crowded, especially on busy Cal weekend.

Only went once. The menu was interesting but very small, overpriced portions. I'm told it's not even as good as it was when it first opened.

The service is always exceptional but today Emily greeted us with a friendly smile and then we had the pleasure of Joe's profesional attentive service. Jodi and her team... More

This is one of our favorite places; we ended up going two nights in a row. We had different things each night. The chicken is great; the vegan pastas are wonderful.

Excellent! Nice choices on the menu. Highly recommend the vegetarian and the raw tuna appetizers -- especially the brussel sprouts, wild mushrooms and the sunchokes. Good wine list and the first drink selection on the cocktail list is exceptional. Highly recommended if you can't get a spot at Chez Panisse. And sitting at the chef's bar where you can watch...

Everything about this place is wonderful. You truly feel the farm to table essence of it all. The ambiance is wonderful, the food is beyond incredible and the staff and service were perfect on our visit this past weekend. Everything we tried, including the various cocktails we had, were exquisitely delicious. I highly, highly recommend this place if you are... More

Loved the ambience, the service and most especially, our fresh and delicious dinner. The concierge at our hotel made reservations on a Friday night, and I don't think we would've gotten a table as a walk-in, so we do advise reservations in advance.
