“Good food, even though it wasn't what we ordered.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Love the atmosphere. A really classy bar/bistro. We ordered martinis to start. My Appletini was delicious. We then ordered the filet mignonette bruschetta to start and split a caprese burger, medium rare. Both orders came out at once. Wierd. The bruschetta was fantastic, and so was the burger, but it wasn't the one we ordered. To their credit, they offered to replace it, but the burger we got looked great so we went with that. It was properly prepared and very good. My husband loved the thick French fries. We'll be back.

“Get the Urban Board”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Came in around 4pm and since that is such a random time we were pretty much the only ones here. We sat at the bar and were provided with excellent service from the bartender. They have a small amount of beer on tap but they make up for it with great cocktails. We ordered the Urban Board which had a ton of food, cheese, meats, flatbread, olives, all sorts of good things. We also had an order of the bruschetta with apple and brie which was good but not needed since the board was so large. The restaurant was clean as well as the bathrooms. They have an outdoor patio and the inside of the restaurant is large, open and airy.

Loud... Kids aloud in bar. Saw a woman holding her baby while standing at a belly bar table drinking a Cosmo.

“The place to go for Happy Hour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

My friends and I went to Happy Hour and enjoyed a very tasty selection of pick from their lounge list. We has calamari, crab cake sliders, fried artichokes, and apple and Brie bruschetta along with small side salads. Every thing was delicious and served promptly, even with a very busy crowd. We ended our meal with the chocolate and cheesecake layer cake, which we shared, due to it's large size. They house wines were also very good, a cabernet and a Chardonnay. All in all, a very good time was had by all!!

“filet mignon bruschetta..wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

Make sure to come to this place and order this magical treat. The setting at this restaurant is marvelous, in Bressi Ranch. They sometimes have live music on weekends, which makes the experience more enjoyable. The only downside is they have no beers on tap. Only bottles...well since the last time I was there..maybe that has changed. Good food, good service, and it can get a bit loud at times. Fun crowd, I believe this place is geared for 21-34.
