“Love the new decor - had great appetizers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Ate there tonight and ordered off the Happy Hour Menu. We had Pork Sliders (YUM!) Garlic Parmesan fries (a must try at any Guy Fieri restaurant), California roll and Big Bird on Fire roll (my fav!). Menu was priced right (most items were $5) and being non drinkers, we had soda and tea.
Service was good, efficient and our waiter came around often. Parking is convenient either on the street or in a lot right behind the restaurant.

Worth a try if you're in Downtown Santa Rosa.

“Poor Service and Atmosphere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

As a big fan of Guy Fieri's, we were excited to try this place during a recent visit to Sonoma County. We got off to a bad start as the bartender ignored us sitting at the bar until I waved at her. They have a nice selection of microbrews and premium whiskeys, however the prices were really high - $19+ for a Stella draft and a Knob Creek. At dinner, the bad service continued. Our server forgot one of the items we ordered and never realized it. During dinner, at an adjacent table, other patrons were playing some kind of drinking game that requires push ups to be done. We are all for fun, but there is a time and place, and a restaurant is not the place. We also were not offered dessert or coffee after the meal, we just got our check without having requested it. The shame of it was that the food we had was good and was a good value. The place appears to be poorly managed and can't figure out if it is a bar or a restaurant.

“Once again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Once again this place delivers. Sushi is fantastic and the staff was great. We had a new waitress and she did wonderful. They don't mind if the kids are rowdy. They where great the first time and great second time. Very consistent. Oh and if you like spicy go with the dragon roll.

“Enter with an open mind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Just because it has Guy Fieri's name on it, doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be excellent. With an open mind, I dropped in for a late afternoon bite. My intention was to have a nice, cold beer and a small tidbit to hold me over until dinner.

After checking out the menu, I decided on a glass of pale ale and some fish tacos. Bottom line: the beer was cold and the tacos were very good. I think I need to come back and try some of the other items on the menu next time. I can honestly say, after my first visit, it was very good.

“Fun Place To Go - Good Bar Area; Large Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This is a great place close to the university area of Santa Rosa. They have good food; a good bar menu. The restaurant is owned by Guy Fieri of FOOD TV (Diners, Drive-In and Dives) fame. The service is good; the vibe is lively but friendly; and a fun place to go.

The only odd thing about it is that if you come after 10:00 they card you late at night just to enter the restaurant ....even if you look over 21....

This restaurant is worth going to and fun....if in the Santa Rosa area.
