The food was fantastic coupled with exceptional service. For parking the real only option was valet. It seemed like a excellent date location.

We went there for New Year's Eve with 2 other couples and enjoyed it very much. We had a reservation and they seated us right on time. The service was good and most of the food was outstanding. My friend and I each had a N.Y. steak, which was a little chewy. But the others had a filet mignon, which... More

Our server, Matthew, went out of his way to provide us good service. The food and the drinks were tasty as well! Would like to hear the Bordeaux band again!

The food was tasty. I had the kale-quinoa salad and added grilled shrimp. Huge portion and very tasty. My husband ordered the ribs -- again, large portion and good. Our appetizer of bacon-wrapped, stuffed shrimp was mediocre at best. The bacon completely over-powered the shrimp and stuffing flavor. Plus, it tasted as if they had been under a heating lamp...

We expected a more sophisticated menu. We got a sports bar experience. All that was missing were the big screen t.v.s. Fries soaked in some greasy, garlicky sauce. Everything heavy with lots of cheese. Noisy crowd. Waiter kept assuring us that he was doing a great job, even though he was very slow. This was a Tuesday night & the... More

We enjoyed Sunday brunch here after watching old surfer dudes at Salt Creek Beach. Sat at the bar and enjoyed unlimited champaign for $9. Our bartender, Carlos, was attentive and recommended the ribs, which were awesome!
