We hadn't been to Cab's since the ownership changed so we were curious. Chef Luis Allyon is still making some great food. We grazed on the tuna tartare which is still fabulous. We also tried the Beef and Sweet Potato Taco which is ground hanger steak, queso fresco,roasted tomatillo salsa, onion, & cilantro between two soft corn tortillas. We tasted... More

I had looked forward to dining at Cab's for quite some time and finally had the opportunity last night. It was disappointing. I'm not going to belabor the point and wax eloquent but here are the reasons: 1) We made on-line reservations, had an e-mail confirmation but they had no record. Not a big deal, the staff rolled with it... More

We love Cab's. My wife and I have a very special connection to the restaurant. I asked my wife to marry me (she excepted) and we brought our youngest child with us when she was very young. It has a very special place in our family.

We have made this our go to place for a great casual meal. We like trying new venues, but it is good to know this restaurant is there. We dined on a very busy Saturday night. Service was slightly slow, but we expect that when a place is packed . The wait staff provided realistic times for drinks and food.... More

This place is great to pop in for a quick bite and a drink. The tapas are quite tasty and unique. We had the tacos and kefta slider. The beef taco was bland but the lamb taco and slider were very good. The atmosphere was less than desired with a crowded bar in the center of the room. The bartender... More

Food is average to good, though plate presentation is a mess. Duck with cabbage was nice, but looks like a pile of slop. Pork was not thrilling. Pear salad was selling nothing; blah and pricey for its size.The interior needs redecorating and the ambiance suffers mightily. Sitting in the back near the ugly wire mesh kitchen window is depressing (block... More

We have visited here a few times. We enjoy sitting at the bar, enjoying the wine and appetizer or tapas menu. Service is friendly, attentive, and relaxed. This is a restaurant too so you can have a full dinner at bar or at tables. Wine by glass or bottle is enjoyable. Beer and drinks also available. Food is good, soup... More
