“The Tap system”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Needs to be fixed. With the wonderful selection of craft brews, it's a shame to serve them at room temperature. It didn't used to be this way. Please fix it!!!!!!

“Excellent food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

My family has recently dined in and enjoyed take out from this lovely spot. The food was all great and very fresh. The decor is attractive, but it can be noisy in there when crowded.

“Love the carrot hummus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

The carrot hummus with the spicy merguez lamb sausage is amazing and HUGE. 2-4 people definitely. Awesome beer selection and super huge bar. I think the bar is half the restaurant.

“Outstanding menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Always very crowded at dinner time, which is a great sign. Have never been disappointed with the food here. Try the gnocchi! Parking can sometimes be hard to find, but worth the search.

“Best burger ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

I love the burgers at Rustico! Good fries, too. Their flatbreads are always reliable, especially the duck. Do not bother going for brunch, it's not their best performance. Don't expect fantastic service, either. Servers are usually indifferent at best.
