“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Really like this place. Try the Turkey Meatloaf and the Salmon starter. Leave room for the Royal Hawaiian bread pudding....outstanding! Staff attentive and knowledgable.

“Fantastic Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This a little restaurant that is truly a gem- it now has an outside patio and is delightful- the food and wine list are exceptional with a great wine by the glass menu and the food is all tapas style so much fun to share

“The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Awesome food, with creative small plates to share and larger plates to not share! Love that the menu changes every few months, we've tried new stuff every time and have never disappointed. Cool little spot for bringing friends with great service and a young, fun staff. The wine list features many options and prices for connoisseurs and novices. No full bar but they have some infusions with some kind of liqueur and they make fun cocktails with that. Also craft beers on tap. Next door is their cooking school which is also fun. Busy even in off season so make sure to reserve a table!!

“If you like exciting tastes...go here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Second time here. Love it. I'm a sous chef & caterer and I can tell you this place is terrific. Try many things and share. Wait staff attentive and helpful in choices. Extensive wine list and it's ok to ask to taste. Love it. Call directly for reservation, not online, plenty of seats if you call ahead.

“We keep coming back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The title says it all. We really like this place. Portion sizes are small, which we love. Mac and Cheese, to die for. Shrimp grits and angus sliders, ditto. Interesting wine list. Well chosen. It is surprising that they are really buzzing even in the middle of summer. A true sign of a successful restaurant here in the desert.
