We would try everything on the menu if we lived close. We enjoyed Mussels Tapas, Mushroom Risotto and Rack of Lamb. Don't pass on the opportunity to have great food and service.

We enjoyed the friendly service and the meals. The Salmon special with a delectable relish, the Walnut and Gorgonzola penne, and the Cioppino were all delicious. The Oysters Guadalupe disappointed-breading was too heavy and needed lemon instead of lime. Overall, we liked the atmosphere and would come again.

I used to work there and loved some of the fair, I think the menu has been the same for many years. But the last time I went the new cook put a bit too much garlic in the creamy pasta dish I loved and I felt like my nostrils were rotting the next day. I would like to go... More

I ate here a couple of years ago and was disappointed. This time we went with friends for dinner and had a very good meal. Service was first rate, the food was excellent, and we never felt rushed, even though the place was busy. I would try it again.

We stopped by based on all of the reviews and were not disappointed. We had the Salmon with pasta and a Turkey Reuben with the day's Carrot Ginger Soup. Everything was great, I wish for some chips or fries with the sandwich but the soup was good too.

(we don't really drink.) the decor was eclectic and cozy. the best seats, which we had on both occasions, are at... More

My husband and I stopped here after seeing the high quality of reviews and we were so glad we did. I had the penne pasta with cream sauce, almond slivers, and chicken. The bread served us was a nice crust with a soft center and avocado butter to go with it. My husband had a delicious turkey sandwich that was... More

We stopped by for dinner after watching a movie. The restaurant has a intriguing atmosphere when you enter. It is very small. The staff was helpful and fairly responsive. We thought the pricing was reasonable. The dishes were plated beautifully. The servings were substantial. I had the Angel hair shrimp dish and my friend had the Moroccan chicken. My dish... More
