This was our 3rd visit. Definitely a 3-1/2. Went to an early dinner for a family celebration. My comments:
Pros:
-Great ambiance, lovely restaurant and bar
-Wonderful open kitchen
-Very nice dish presentation
-Attentive server
-Manager was engaging and receptive to idea of seating at counter facing kitchen.

Cons:
-Special of the night was Halibut--at $38.00!!!?? Don't think so.
-My dish was an over-salted Jidori chicken. Skimpy on mashed potatoes and spinach .
-My Bloody Mary was below average. No olives, no celery, no nothing! Had to ask for some olives. Drink served in a regular size water glass. Very disappointing.
-My husband's Angel Hair pasta was ok as an appetizer but not enough. He ate my salty chicken.

Unfortunately, this is not the best restaurant in Riverside and Orange County. It can, however, be much better.

Went there for Sunday champagne brunch with a big group. Brunch was well done. Not too many selections, but in a good way. Sometimes you'll go to a buffet and there will be sensory overload. Two items on the carving tables, a couple salads, four or five deserts. Well represented in both the breakfast items (caramel french toast, omelette bar, eggs benedict) and lunch items (stuffed chicken, mussels). I would have liked a few more choices on dessert (especially with chocolate) but I have a big sweet tooth. One of our party went away from the brunch and had the sea bass, which he said was excellent. Located at the Shops at Dos Lagos in Corona. Nice decor and good service. Buffet price was a little high, and regular menu prices are a bit high, but a nice experience. Overall, a decent pick.

I have been sportfishing and preparing pacific cost fish for years so i am usually disappointed. I must say they made the seabass to perfection. The fish and their selection of sauce and Rizotto for this dish was excellent. Lost coast tangerine wheat beer to wash it down yum

I've only been here for lunch. The menu looked a little pricy with the exception of a few items. Nice decor and atmosphere. Love the open kitchen. We were a little concerned when we got there as there were no customers. It picked up as we were leaving. We were there at 11:00 on a weekday. The service was good. The bread is awesome and I could eat a whole basket. The burger was perfectly cooked and seasoned, as were the fries. I'd give it a second visit
