The place is adorable and the food wonderful. Our server was great...she took amazing care of us. We had lunch but I want to go back for happy hour and dinner! I'd recommend this place to anyone and it's perfect for all events.

This time it was just two and we had a variety of small plats. Great variety and flavors, all interesting and beautifully presented. If you live in Portland this restaurant... More

Although the service was excellent, I sent my drink back twice, yet still awful, didn't drink. How can you mess up a margarita? My husband ordered a $26 steak, arrived over cooked. I ordered a pork chop, it arrived tasty, but very tough. We will not return.
