We went for a special occasion dinner as I had heard a lot of good things about the restaurant over the years. I really liked the ambience and the paintings. But their menu is kind of mixed so you have pizza oven pizza along side some high end dishes. This brought in some people who were more informally dressed (shorts... More

Went to one of their wine dinners and a brunch. Wow...they really know what they are doing! Great fixed menu! Pleasantly surprised considering the location. Don't let it dissuade you. It's worth a trip.

Our family of four stopped here for dinner one night as it is one of the last places we have not tried in Cypress. The decor is great as is the atmosphere. The service from the minute that we walked in was also excellent. While the food was good, we found that most of the items on the menu were... More

Our favorite appetizer is the Medjool dates stuffed with gorgonzola cheese and wrapped in bacon with a sweet sauce. They have excellent entrees as well as pizzas that are great to eat outside on their patio. It is tucked into the Cypress Northwest Hospital area next to several doctors' offices. They do have a parking garage nearby and they validate.

Varied menu, service is great & it is a quiet atmosphere where you may visit with friends or just unwind after a stressful week with your special someone. Large wine list, easy access off 290 & accept reservations.

Not worth a visit. $20 for a chicken salad, I am NOT the one. Salada has better options, way less expensive with organic choices.

Do NOT bring you family here. The do not like or appear to want any kids. We came here with our grandkids for dinner. Service was terrible. We were mostly ignored. Worst, they treated the kids like they were not there. No kids menu, so we asked what they had for kids (ages 3 to 11), they said they had... More

Sometimes you feel like nut! My first time there with a client and I have to say I didn't get it. The menu looked great, the ambience was nice and the drinks were good. Then the food came out! Huh? Veal picatta (veal was cut to thick) with whole artichoke leaves in the sauce? Difficult at best to try and... More

We've gone here to celebrate New Year the last two years. It's a gem, not very popular because it's by a Medical center (?). We like their menu, they offer Spanish dishes. We've tried the Fried Asparagus, their fish dishes are wonderful. And their desserts too.
