It was a chilly night so of course I was craving some warm chicken and dumpling. This hit the spot! The best thing I had by far was the seasonal bread pudding. It is my new favorite dessert in San Diego.

I had a very nice late (8:30) dinner with a good friend. We ordered the cheese plate (excellent); I had steamed mussels in a superb cream broth, my friend had an excellent salad. We shared the mac and cheese which was good, not quite great....More

This restaurant feels like it was lifted out of San Francisco, the food and menu are made with care and SO tasty. The service, while still good, was lacking at times and inconsistent. Would still highly recommend for a nice night out on the patio...More

Cuisine, service, and cocktails were all excellent! Very eclectic wine list as well. There were six of us and we all enjoyed our meals.

Relaxed with excellent service. Good, solid cocktails, with perhaps a tad too long on ice. Chicken liver pate was great. Trout entree was very split-able --- that's the good news. Watermelon, tomato & feta salad was good, but could have used more mint. But otherwise...More
