This restaurant was named for the owners daughter over a decade ago. He and his family work to bring you a flawless experience. This is so much more than a restaurant- it is passion and joy. We had the tasting menu which had 3 of my favorite things: abalone, halibut and boar (cingale). It is super hard to make abalone... More

The food was mouth watering. I highly recommend the scallops! The filet mignon was as soft as butter. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday. The place was packed. The owner/chef/host/waiter was running around like crazy. I could see him sweating poor guy. But he was still incredibly pleasant and even comped our champagne because it was my boyfriends... More

My wife and I were referred to this restaurant by a local Cambrian. It was very cozy, and we were greeted by nice young lady. Our waiter was Collin. The wine pairings to our food were perfect, And I would suggest The filet mignon and the duck! Look forward coming again on our next trip!!! :-)

This restaurant has very limited hours because it is a wine store by day and restaurant by night. The food is European-inspired and very well executed. My wife and I both very much enjoyed our meals. Our server was friendly, attentive, and helpful. The owner greeted us and showed us to our table; he also spent a few minutes in... More

This charming little restaurant has great potential. The owner met us during our meal and assisted the servers throughout (a nice touch). The service was first-rate, and when servers didn't know the answer to a question, they would find someone who did. The food was very high quality with the fresh-catch of the day being really fresh, not just stored-fresh.... More

All the food was fantastic, we chose the Chef's special menu with wine pairing, and all the wines were perfectly matched to each course. the presentation of each course was very nice. We especially enjoyed the Corn chowder with cactus and the fresh fish with the delicious tomato & pumpkin seed "mousse" The server was excellent explaining each course and... More

This restaurant was awesome! We did the chef's tasting menu with wine. It was wonderful! Better then a few other restaurants that we went to over the weekend that were price comparison. They have cute little garden boxes growing outside the front. Would go again for sure!
