“Excellent! More cosmopolitan vibe than you'd expect in Yuma”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Great menu, and both of our meals were excellent. It's on a corner in a residential neighborhood, and truthfully doesn't have much "curb appeal". But once inside, the dining room and bar area is very attractive, and there is a terrific outdoor patio. We were there for lunch, and it was very pleasant outside. Well prepared meals and an interesting and varied menu with meat and seafood. It's nice to find a locally owned place and not have to rely on the national restaurant chains while traveling on business. Definitely worth a return visit, and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Yuma.

“Surprisingly good seafood”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is located in a neighborhood that is a little run down. The sign on the the building is old and faded. You begin to wonder if the reviews are right. Went in for late lunch and we were the only ones in the restaurant. We chose one of the outdoor patios. Linen and cloth napkins were on the tables. Some thing you would not have expected. The food was very good. I had the green curry mussels and my wife had the salmon crab cakes. It was good enough that we are going to go back with a friend.

“Pleasant surroundings-great food”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here based on tripadvisor reviews. Very glad we did. Not your usual diner. Varied menu, quality food, linens on table, great service.
Only disappointment was that the restaurant is not wheelchair accessible. They do also have patio dining but didn't see a path into the patio area for a person with mobility disability.

“Better then we expected.”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

On our visit to Yuma, AZ. we didn't know what eating establishments would be worth trying.
This one is definalty worth going to. We made a reservation, good thing. Though we went early thinking we'd still get a table, not so. A full house! We ended eating at the bar which was ok, but a table would have suited us better.
The place was very busy which we could tell upon entering so we did have to wait a bit longer then the tables for our food service.
My husband had Pasta with Shrimp and I had a medly of Shrimp,Scallops and House made Lobster Ravioli. Both meals came with choice of salad. We enjoyed our meal witha bottle of wine. We would go back if we happened to be in Yuma again.

“Unique atmosphere and menu, very Bohemian and a winner. Still craving it and can highly recommend!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Dined here for a late lunch recently and the place was quiet. We had a great waitress who was able to explain the menu items and recommend changes.We enjoyed the kobe burger and the River City wrap that puts all other wraps to shame. I would love to try dinner. Very eclectic menu and decor; cool and artsy. Seems way out of place for Yuma, so good for Yuma. I would come back for sure. Food, service and atmosphere were great. Please, skip the chain restaurants in Yuma and enjoy a unique and unexpected dining experience.
