This spot was recommended by every local we ran in to. It's worth all their praise! The place is run by a close knit staff with friendly service. It was packed and we had to wait a bit, so I would recommended making a reservation if you can.

All the food looked excellent and their seafood was fresh and top quality. The local beer they have on tap is tasty and I would highly recommend just ordering one of their daily specials - especially if it's a pasta with the champagne orange sauce!

I knew ahead of time this was going to be crowded. We had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes. This restaurant was small so there was no comfortable place to wait. The owner was very nice about it, apologized several times and gave us two drinks on the house because of the wait. The food was great, the decor is really fun. It did feel a bit cramped even at the table because of the size of the place. I got the sense a lot of locals as well as toursists go. It was worth it to go once, but I think we prefer a bit more space. If the food and decor are more important to you than physical space, you should go ahead and make the reservation.

This place is super cute from the outside and also nice inside; however there are about 2-3 tables too many in the place. The table are so tightly packed that I watched a larger gentleman that could not exit and ended up leaving through the kitchen and was clearly quite embarrassed. The food is pretty good and there is lots of variety. But the service was harassed and everyone that came to our table started every conversation with a big sigh. They brought us an appetizer we did not order and after we started to eat it, they realized their mistake and took it away. There were drinks ordered that never arrived and the noise inside made any kind of conversation very difficult.

We arrived tonight at peak time. Super crowded with happy diners. The owner was totally accommodating even though we didn't have a reservation. Short wait. Yummy creative menu. Delicious veggie curry and king salmon entrees. Adorable eclectic decor!

Locals recommend we try this place and while it was packed, the food was too heavily sauced for our taste. While I'm sure many fo the dishes might have been delicious, the selection of so many cream based sauces simply said heavy and unduly caloric to us.
