Had dinner here with friends a few weeks ago before a show at the Bankhead. It was very good. Will certainly dine here again in the future. Very good service, very good food and reasonably priced.

Best salad I've ever had at a restaurant. Presentation is ALWAYS beautiful, with a flavor that matches. Every dish that they serve meets the same high quality standard. Nice environment, and good for people watching on Livermore's main street.

Always a favorite for their beautiful ambiance but love the food too! With their smart priced dinner specials why cook at home!

I was passing through town to pick up a kayak. The sales person sent us here for lunch and we were very happy. They serve perhaps the best green curry that I have eaten. Aling with a cold Thai beer, it was the perfect lunch!

One of our favorite places on First Street. Good food in a very nice, relatively quiet atmosphere. The Bankhead theater and Livermore Cinema are just steps away, so it's a nice place for a good meal before a show. Service is pretty fast, but I...More
