“Food is a bit too "stylish"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2015 NEW

A group of friends decided to eat here as we thought the ambiance would allow us to have a conversation without shouting over a din. We were right! It is a lovely atmosphere to enjoy a conversation with your companions. Several of us ordered the Smoked Salmon Chopped Salad and were surprised to find it arranged in narrow strips on the platter - a bit too "stylish" or trendy with a two tiny drops of dressing in the corners. Our waittress was superb throughout and she immediately brought us more dressing. The smoked salmon was a bit too salty or seemed more like sushi salmon. The wine list was well done. I would like to return the next time I'm in Durango and check out the Happy Hour selections.

“A Real Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2015

I had read the Trip Advisor reviews and based on other's reviews thought I would try this restaurant. All the other reviewers were correct this is one fantastic restaurant. I was greeted upon entry, seated promptly, offered coat service, and the waiter was there pronto. He knew his products and offered prompt service. I had the special sushi of the day and the small beet salad with a house white wine. I didn't need anything else, but I will tell you I plan on going back before leaving Durango. Consider this restaurant in your dining choices.

“Just BEET it....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2015

In town and downtown for a walk, looking for decent place for a solo happy hour that was not deep fried and luckily ducked in here. I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and menu selection. Being somewhat of a non-traditional diner, I chose the Warm Beet salad for my appetizer and found it to be fantastic. I had a nice conversation with my neighbors and was happy!
