Nice atmosphere for a group night out, but very limited on their wine selections. When I looked around, noticed the locals brought their own bottles to drink. So inquire what the corkage fee is and try it that way. Mark-up on wine is over 100%, so if you like to drink quality, BYOB and pay a corkage fee. Food was tasty but offerings are small plate. So plan on a few selections per person if you are at all hungry.

Great La Quinta restaurant for dinner. It is a small space with a modest bar for walk-ins. It is located in the rear of a shopping center. It has been gaining in popularity and reservations seem prudent. We had the cured salmon which was wonderful. The filet mignon tacos were also quite good. There are many other interesting choices to share. The wine selection is diverse, among the best in the desert. There is a good dessert selection as well. Worth a visit and we plan to return next visit.

Dined here with friends based on the tripadvisor reviews. Usually a good gauge, however I was terribly disappointed with my experience. The space is very small and the noise is overwhelming. The food was meh ... Boring. Risotto was way yay over cooked and was a mushy bland porridge-like substance, salmon says in-house smoked but seemed like it was vendor bought, a bit oily. wine list was decent. The bill was outrageously high for a poor experience. Would have complained at restaurant but server was elsewhere all evening.

Such creative dishes and very tastefully prepared and served. We didn't have a reservation so were turned away initially, but they called us 5 minutes later and said we could come back due to a couple of cancellations so we did! The tuna, tacos, pizza, and scallops were all delicious. Service was quick too.

We were thrilled with the entire experience. My husband and I started with their house smoked salmon moved to PEI mussels and finished with the Grown-up grilled cheese plus a fabulous cab sav was all we could eat. Yummy, but no room for the Bread pudding this trip so we must go back...soon. Hope we can make it again while we are here.

The service was superb, attentive without looming and everything we needed was done with a smile.

So glad we reserved a table to take it all in.
