Wow! Great wine selection, atmosphere, service, and the cuisine was out of this world. I wanted to impress my girlfriend on date night and she wasn't disappointed! Great location in chic downtown Livermore and near plenty of parking.

Good food, fresh. Unique items along with traditional (American-style!) chinese food. Pot stickers are some of the best around - I like the fat doughy kind, and these are them! A little high priced, but nice to get fresh Chinese.

Nick the owner has accomplished something truly unique. The ability to successfully pair wine -- and he has an incredible selection of rare and unusual ones -- with Chinese cuisine. What actually pairs with spicy eggplant (a must try appetizer)? An unusual South Eastern French Sauvignon blend the includes a touch of Vermentino to give it a depth that stands... More

I'm not sure what the rave is all about. I wasn't impressed at all. To me it was just over priced typical Chinese food. I've had better at some take out places. We started with the potstickers which were so thick and hardly any meat in them. We also had lemon chicken which was good, but like I said, nothing... More

Very nice restaurant in downtown Livermore. Option to dine inside a very nicely appointed setting or outside on the patio. We eat here semi-regularly and always enjoy the food. Lots of options to choose from and all are well prepared. Asian food but with a bit of flare.

Prepare to be dazzled! Wine list tops 400 selections, the food is to die for. Try the Orange Beef. The owner comes around to bus the table, makes sure everything is just fine. Which it absolutely is! Staff is happy. A well run, fabulous restaurant.

Not authentic Chinese food. Rather modernized or westernized cuisine. But they taste good. Excellent service.

We were a group of ten friends and ordered off the group menu. Food was good, not great. Better food quality when ordering off the entrée/individual menu. I've been here several times and entrees are always good.

Highly Recommend! We had made reservations on a wrong day by mistake and when we showed up on a busy weekend, they maitre switched it around to accommodate us and within a short wait we got a table on the outside (which is what we wanted). The ambiance is nice - the outside seating with the view of the little... More
