“Great Place for an Oyster Fix”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile


We eat here at least once a month. Always start off with a dozen raw oysters. Never disappointed. It can be noisy and no reservations but worth the wait. The menu features a variety of tapas and it is fun to try new dishes. I have been disappointed a couple of times with a dish, but overall everything we have ordered is exceptional. A must do if you are touring the wine country!

“Fabulous tapas”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

This quaint down past Santa Rosa should not be missed if you are doing the Sonoma- Napa vacation. This is a fabulous spot to dine, as per granddaughter's recommendation. Somehow tapas and a fabulous bottle of wine are the perfect lunch. The patio was intimate and allowed for conversation. The wine list is terrific..do try the Raffielo red zinfandil. The tapas were perfectly presented and portioned and delicious. Don't miss Willi's or Healdsburg.

“Nothing to crow about”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

First of all this place is very noisy. We had a party of eight and they squished us into a booth that would fit 6 comfortably. The food was just ok. They serve "small plates" to share. Nothing was really easy to share. We had a lobster roll that we had to eat with a fork. I noticed seafood on the menu that was not sustainable. Don't know what fish was in the fish tacos (3 very small tacos held together with a skewer). Chopped salad was good but very pricey. Probably won't come back here again.

“Fun with friends”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Sharing food with friends is a great way to have a fun dinner and try new dishes. It doesn't hurt that the martinis can be made with blood orange juice!

The lobster roll alone is a reason to eat here! Don't miss it! Good wines, great bartenders, always busy.
