While this is a small chain restaurant, they do everything right. The atmosphere is lively. The servers are friendly. The herbs are grown right outside the restaurant. The food is fresh and healthy and inventive. They offer plenty of gluten-free options (though they are not a gluten-free kitchen). The menu is vast as is the drinks list. I had the... More

Love this place, my favorite is their Basil Berry Sorbet, their steelhead salmon is great. Service is always friendly and accomodates to any needs you might have. Definitely worthwhile!

A restaurant menu based on an anti inflammatory diet- and it tasted so good! The menu was loaded with gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options. Those dishes my party ordered were all beautifully prepared and tasted great. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. Important for me: a number of local beers were represented. I would love to see this concept... More

Went to this restaurant based on previous experiences at the restaurants in Biltmore Fashion Park and Scottsdale Quarter in Arizona. It seems that something was lost in crossing the border, everything was mediocre....food, service, presentation, ambiance. We should have been forewarned, on a Sunday morning when this place should have been packed, it was only half full, while some of... More

If you don't mind your main course being served while you are still eating your starters/appetizers, then this is the place for you. The way our main courses were simply placed on our table while we were still eating our starters, suggested that this is what they call business as usual. Having said that, the food was very nice and... More

on the blackboard there are words that proclaim good food speaks for itself and it is true that excellent ingredients don't require much embellishment. Why hide fresh and delicious tastes. We laugh before entering as in sure thing, isn't this what everyone says about food, especially in California. However here it is true. So true that my husband says these... More

You wouldn't expect a restaurant like this on the edge of a mall. We sat in the outdoor area at the bar and we not only had a fantastic meal, but were able to watch the bartenders make beautiful drinks. We enjoyed their two martinis one was cucumber based and delicious. We had the sardine appetizer, along with the edamame... More

I don't often think of good food in a mall, but this place was incredible! We were staying nearby for a conference and this was definitely a highlight! If you're here in the fall, get the quinoa burger, it was incredible! Such great fresh flavors! We went back for cocktails which were delicious and the staff incredibly friendly at the... More

Have been here for lunch a few times with friends. Great food and drinks. All farm fresh, organic seasonal food. Menu changes with the seasons. A little loud inside, the outside seating is very comfortable. Delicious everything. Fun to try a few things and share. Save room for dessert. If you like lemon, try their lemon tart with coconut whipped... More
