Came here with a co-worker and really enjoyed the whole experience. The restaurants is a mom-and-pop type place, not pretentious, but nice. Our server, Sonia, was excellent - friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. I'll definitely go back if I'm in the area again.

We were visiting from out of town. We found this restaurant on trip advisor. It was close to our hotel and offered a nice menu. The place is off the main road so it is not an easy location to find. However, we are glad...More

I meet here for lunch with friends often. Last week was no exception. I have never had a bad meal here. Odd little (15 tables maybe) dining room, sparse in décor, in a location on the edge of downtown Menlo Park. Plenty of parking near...More
