Nice atmosphere, quality attentive service, creative and diverse menu and a good wine list. All of our dishes were well executed and tasty. Was great to have so many vegetarian options and a vegan friendly kitchen.

Met friends for a late lunch on a Sunday. They offered brunch and regular menu. Happy Hour is 12-3. The food and service were great, as usual. The Manila clams and grilled octopus appetizers were amazing. Strawberry margarita was great.

Have been here many times for brunch and have never been disappointed. My favorite is the lobster hash with poached egg. The chef accommodates any slight variation with no issue. The wait people are top notch. If there is any complaint on my part it...More
