Came here for happy hour had a couple of drinks and food. All was excellent would definitely come again but if the food hadn’t had half off it would have been very expensive so would only come for happy Hour.

The service was very well done. The presentation and taste of the appetizer (Calamari), and main course (Sea Bass) were excellent. Fresh baked Sourdough Bread complimented the meal. Very modern setting with a scenic view of Monterey Bay.
