What a disappointment all around....and an embarrassment for the friends I took to dinner tonight. After finally finding the correct number to call (the number on Google is disconnected) I made a reservation mid-week w/ Nick for six people at 7 pm on Saturday. Then reconfirmed on Friday with Nick. Got to the restaurant on-time and, of course, no reservation.... More

This adorable outdoor restaurant is in a plaza off the main drag and is only open Friday& Saturday. It is amazing! Whether you're a foodie or not, make it a point to eat here. The "dining room" consists of small tables covered with white table clothes. All are outside and some are under a pergola strung with white lights. Three... More

Stumbled on this cute restaurant when looking for a light dinner. Menu, while limited, was interesting and service was great.

The food offered here (on a currently limited menu) was very well done (in the flavor sense!) The flatbread pizzas are ample and very tasty (I had the one with steak pieces and greens with a balsamic sauce). The salads are also very good. The ambiance is very interesting. The restaurant is set up in a parking lot with the... More

The sliders are out of this world. The caprese salad was delightful. Weather tonight is perfect (it's all outdoor seating). Waitstaff hustles, they could use one or two more.

Went here due to proximity to Soleado Hotel and good ratings on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. Don't assume that "small plate" means "small portions", but instead that the items are designed to be shared. Wife and I ordered three items -- shrimp bruschetta, flatbread, steak tacos. We ate until full and still had half the flatbread left. Cute, outdoor... More

This is probably one of the coolest random finds I've ever had. Food was wonderful and prices are very reasonable. Almost roof top restaurant privacy feel for being off a main drive and open aired. Quiet and very personable. Staff was extremely accommodating. The evening was unseasonably cool and one of the staff offered my girlfriend a throw and moved... More

Went with our three year old who enjoyed the satay chicken and my pizza margharita. Great atmosphere and great value.

The bistro is situated outside (looks like and outside parking lot), comfortable patio furniture and nice ambiance. I had the thin crust pizza and it was amazing, it was very tasty and fresh. The dessert was also excellent. In addition, the prices are reasonable. Overall, it was a great evening and great food. The place had just opened when you... More
