“Quality of fare, service uneven”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Been there several times. Always noisy at and around bar (in front, as one enters). Zero noise baffling, but perhaps intentional, the better to create a "buzz." Known to some as meat market. Table service ranges from outstanding to average, ditto the fare. Patio dining, with space heaters, big plus, although usually can hear street noise (Mount Diablo Blvd, the main drag of Lafayette).

“Caters to large groups”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had our last Christmas luncheon here for work-related function. They didn't notify us that they needed the tables because they booked us back to back to another large party. So, we were on a time limit (I think they worked us in for 1 1/2 hour), so experience was rushed to say the least.

Food choices for such an event were varied but nothing stellar that will make me want to return on my own.

“Good food, good service, pricy for what you get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere was great and the outside eating area good . Food was well presented, well cooked but a little pricy for what it was. We'll probably go back again if we have guests over, purely for the ambiance.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The food here is amazing. This place is ideal if you like to share. They have a lot of good small plates. The pork belly is a must have!

“OK .. great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I had high expectations and it was fine. Great location, easy parking is a plus. Felt is was a bit over priced for food and drinks. Creative drink menu at the bar but the poors were not generous.
