Went there for dinner to celebrate our 6 year old daughter's birthday. We were looking for a nice restaurant that served chicken fingers as our daughter wanted chicken fingers, but the rest of the family did not! I had the crab torta for an appetizer, while my husband had the octopus arrabiata and our 14 year old had the steak... More

We went to this restaurant as it was close by to our hotel - the dimly lit lights made our chicken look uncooked and red inside which immediately put us off our food. It was also annoying how everytime you had a sip of your drink they filled it back up again. Might be good for locals but doesn't really... More

Excellent food, service, cocktails and wine selection. A rare kind of chic old school elegance about this place, while still feeling modern. It must be the excellent service!

Food is average at best, the restaurant is a small room with no atmosphere and the servers are local students. Just not that good.

This restaurant simply has the best food. Their meals are prepared with fresh vegetables from the local farmers markets and obviously prepared with care. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is fun but also low key.

Seven of us ate here last week and we all were very satisfied with our meals and with the service. Even though we had a large group we did not feel neglected. I had a flat iron steak which was cooked to perfection. Nice selection of wines as well.

This is truly a neighbor find that's been around for awhile. The food is awesome (albeit pricey) and so is the service. Don't be surprised to see one or more of your favorite classic movie or television actors/actresses seated next to you on any given night. Oh and if you like martini's - try one or two, you'll be impressed.

Great food and beverages were introduced to us by relatives who live in Brentwood as their neighborhood spot. Fresh wonderful creations, magnificent service and a fine time were had by all of us. Check it out when in west LA, Brentwood, Santa Monica, etc.

Fantastic food and service...hard to believe this is a "local" joint! Terrific food and staff...remarkably wide range menu. From steak to softshell crab. Would definitely return. Reasonable price, perfect ambiance.

This restaurant is a little reminiscent of the Brown Derby:clubby, dimly lit and a lot of talking. The room was packed. My friend informed me that it was one of the two best in Brentwood. What makes it great? In this case, the food. Very fresh, very well prepared. I had a special: fried calamari and it was just the... More
