This place was an accidental find, because it opens for lunch a bit earlier than the places around it, but wow! The food was creative and oh-so-tasty. Definitely a major step up over Tony P.'s or the nearby Cheesecake Factory...

We just turned up at 18.30 on a Saturday evening and the charming hostess found us a nice table.
Immediately we were offered numerous types of water including tap. We chose tap and, thankfully, did not receive the " are you peasants look". This was very representative of the service that we received all night. Our waitress was a stunning black girl (apologies, did not get her name!) She could not have been more helpful. We shared a large Caesar salad to start and my wife followed with crab cakes and I had salmon. We had a bottle of white Zinfandel as an accompaniment .
Overall a really nice experience in a great location.

Ok on weekend they have a 3 course brunch. I did not know this nor did I need that much food, but at $35 plus mimosa not a bad deal. Beauty is you can order al a'carte which I did hence the delious lamb gyro. With a glass of Chardonnay and the California sun and boats at marina del Rey, what is not to like?

I was treated to this restaurant by friends who obviously know good food. I have a fond "taste memory" especially for the squash (pumpkin) bisque and the truffle pizza starters! Seems like we tried almost "one of each" of the raw bar and starters and everything was an outstanding surprise of flavors. I finished with the sea bass which was excellent; would love to come back and work my way down the rest of the entrees on this menu. Wine selection was also terrific. The food complimented the great company and makes this a longlasting great memory for me. This is a place for people who want a great food adventure instead of the usual fare; share this with special friends and family.

I went to happy hour with a friend and ended up staying for dinner. The appetizers were great and my lamb burger was perfect! Our server was super attentive.
