After a disappointing experience here a couple of years ago, we hesitate to return. But we're glad we did!

This place is small, but a hidden gem with a wonderful courtyard, great food, and really reasonable prices. Definitely make a reservation and request patio seating if available.

Wonderful experience! Staff was courteous and friendly and attentive...but not TOO attentive. Nice ambience. Terrific petite syrah to drink. The special, salmon dynamite was delicious on a bed of baby bok choy and rice. They also came by with a smal amuse bouche at the beginning and a tiny brownie at the end. Well worth a visit!

I'm glad I got to enjoy a glass of house-made sangria while we waited because the wait was long even with our reservation. The drink was delicious! The food was just ok (my omelet was greasy-yuck!) and in my opinion was overpriced for what we got.

We stopped in for dinner at an early hour (5pm). We started with a crab cake with a chipotle aoili sauce which was out of this world! My husband had the panko encrusted sole with fingerling potatoes and some roasted vegetables. I had the filet mignon with a cabernet reduction sauce. Mine came with garlic masked potatoes, roasted asparagus and... More

This restaurant is a delight. Food and service both excellent. I had the Ahi Poke starter and the Grilled Swordfish. Both were as good as I've had anywhere. The tuna was very fresh tasting and the swordfish--which can be dry--was moist and perfectly prepared. We had the Dry Creek Fume Blanc which I'd also recommend. Jake's is a fine choice... More

Went for Saturday brunch. Sat at bar. Nice but inexperienced bartender. Staying nearby and stumbled across this place went in because reviews were pretty good. Coffee was very very good. My breakfast was very mediocre. Eggs ordered over easy, cooked hard. They were missing ingredients which they said would arrive in 15 minutes. The cobbled together my breakfast with what... More
