3 of us have eaten lunch here several times and liked the food. But somehow, at night this place really has atmosphere. The lighting accents the fixtures, decibel level is low, service solicitous. 1 of us ordered steak, another macadamia crusted mahi mahi, and 1 chicken pesto with pine nuts, sundried toms. All of us enjoyed our meals--then and again the next day. Large enough portions to have leftovers. This will be my go to restaurant in Escondido.
