“Great Food, Great Service, Great Entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I love this place! First time diner this week and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my meal experience there. First, the wait person was warm and welcoming. She gave good advice on the menu options and wine. She brought a small taste of the wine I was considering so I could be sure it was to my liking. When I ordered a second glass, she brought the whole bottle out and filled my glass with a generous pour. The steak salad was perfect, with the steak grilled just the way I like it (medium rare.)
And then there was the music......
what a treat. a delightful jazz combo that provided great entertainment. Perfect backdrop for my leisurely meal.
I will totally dine here again on my next visit to Redwood City, and encourage you to as well.

Hey there, I know it's been a few months, but I just wanted to reach out and say thanks for the wonderful recommendation! It's great to hear how much you enjoyed your visit, from the music to the meal. For your information, we've made some major renovations lately — it'd be great to hear your thoughts, so come visit soon if you haven't been by recently!

“lousy food, great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is the funky-est place in RWC, an unusual joint. It's got a bunch of different rooms - upstairs, downstairs, the garden out back, the back bar. There's usually something going on, and although the acts are B grade, it's always the kind of place where everyone's having fun. The food is really an afterthought - not the best place on that particular street (Donato and Martin's West on either side), but once you're enjoying the cover band or blues jam, you just don't care. Also good for holing up after a long day and having a glass of wine - no hard liquor. It also works for renting out for corp parties, probably the best space like this in RWC.

First time there after just moving to town. Good menu, great beer and wine list. Really friendly staff. Construction going right now - was a little confusing how to get inside. Will be back with me wife soon.

“Really unique, really fun, worth a drive.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

What a cool place! Thanks to Jessica J. for introducing us!

We came on a night with tix to see some mo-town and jazz impersonators: Billie Holiday, the Temptations, Chaka Khan, etc. etc. They were so great! My fiance who does not, shall we say, got the moves like Jagger, even got up and danced! (Although that may have had something to do with the delectable scotch ale he had four of!)

The food is really good too-- my salade nicoise was savory and peppery, and the ahi tuna was really tender and delicious. Meanwhile my fiance had a look of just total bliss after his first bite of grilled salmon.

Between the pear cider snake bites, tasty foods, and event tickets, it's easy to rachet up a serious bill here... Not a place to come when the dollars are dwindling. And this will only get more dangerous when they have their full bar up and running!
