Dining with a friend, we had oysters on the half shell (very fresh), crab toasts (perfect ratio of crab meat to bread) for starters. Followed by salads with excellent dressings. For entree's we had flat iron steak with a balsamic reduction sauce and brussel sprouts and scallops with roasted cauliflower. The steak was beautifully cooked and the reduction sauce very... More

I had the special Sea Bass with chard greens - OMG I want that recipe! The flavours were awesome! My husband had the steak - it too was excellent. We loved the fact that it was the same price to order wines by the glass as by the bottle. This way we could order the appropriate wines for what we... More

A very enjoyable place and a nice respite after battling your way there through the gridlock on 405 created by the genius Department of Transportation's new bogus-HOV lanes. But don't get me started. This restaurant is beautiful, and the staff is friendly, professional, and very well trained. Be prepared to pay for parking (most of which the restaurant will handle... More

My friend and I stopped in this fun find before our scheduled dinner reservation off premises. We were pleasantly surprised that we did. Their wine list was limited so I was unable to order a glass of my favorite Chardonnay. However, the two appetizers we ordered were delicious and "hit the spot" for us before we departed for dinner.
