great, slightly funky twist on CA local favorites, as well as excellent bar (and bartender). Dinner menu varied and excellent. Breakfast is great as well.

We were staying in the Solamar hotel and didn't want to go too far to eat. We didn't regret it. Had an excellent meal and the staff were friendly and courteous. Would recommend it.

Haven't had a fried baloney sandwich in about 20 years. Tasty sandwich, they use high quality thick baloney. The sandwich works. The service was quick and good.

The breakfast dishes are, for the most part, standard at this restaurant, but the Chilaquiles was truly unique and quite good! I had that for a business breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant wasn't crowded, but when it became busier, noise was a slight issue. Otherwise, a great choice!

We stopped in at JSix for a later quick bite. We sat at the bar for one drink and the bartender was dressed as a sheriff a hat, had a badge and a toy pistol! I believe it was part of a charitable cause but he was having fun and it was entertaining. We had drinks and then sat. The... More

i was really excited to see a restaurant with an emphasis on organic and locally grown foods. I had the kale salad (they do a great job with a difficult green. Not tart like you might expect). I highly recommend the meatballs. They were delicious served with a yogurt and cucumber. I know, sounds a little odd... But you have... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. My hotel gave me a coupon for a free appetizer. The free appetizer was a charcuterie board with fruit, cheeses, veggies and cured meat. All locally grown, fantastic!!! I ordered a couple of other appetizers, the fried avocado and the artichoke hearts. Both were excellent. If you love good food and a variety of fresh flavors,...

We only had breakfast here. The service was good as was the food, however it was kind of pricey. We ate here because it was linked to our hotel.

Ate here with a coworker for an early dinner (no reservation needed.) Interesting menu. She started off with a watermelon mozzarella salad that was amazing. I opted for the butter fish (escloar) as my entrée. It was incredible. Would return.
