I came here with my friend for dinner the other night. I've drove by this place before and never noticed it. My friend heard good things about it. I'm glad we came here as the food is quite good. I started out with the clam chowder which was excellent. I got the beef cheeks which was also really great. The... More

I agree with the review from SonomaGrass. They just don't get it completely right and because of that, I'm not sure we'll return. My entree was served room temp although my dinner companion's same dish was steaming hot. Neither one of us was very happy with the dish. Someone at the table ordered the pork belly entree which should have... More

Just not great. We checked out the menu before going and felt intrigued. Getting right to the point The fresh herbs used throughout each item we ordered was a bright and flavorful addition to each dish. Our table ordered the roasted corn and dandelion green salad, watermelon salad, squash blossoms, sole entree, farro entree, and quinoa entree. The salads were... More

Stumbled upon this place by accident, food and drink were good it was more about ambience. Nice little second level patio seating with view for sunsets. Industrial architecture which lends to somewhat noisy atmosphere. Fun place to go for drinks and appetizers.

Tried this place with a friends recommendation and it was awesome. The 2nd story patio seating was great. We started with a fried green tomato app that was delish then we order the best grilled cheese I had ever had that came with a cup of tomato bisque soup to die for. My favorite part was the dessert it was... More

My sister and I went here for lunch and it was awesome. I had the quinoa burger and my sis had the clam chowder/chk salad combo. The cheese bisquits and tomato jam were insane. Loved it!!

I enjoyed my ahi but it was not center cut. My daughter was disappointed by what the waitress described as eggs benedict, it definitely was not and had to be sent back being the yokes were over cooked. They did not take the plate only brought us the boiled eggs in a cup, really, I would have to say not... More
