In the amazingly-deprived Marin restaurant scene (Picco AGAIN??) I was excited to try the latest addition. Overall, we were very happy with our meal and will return. The parking / restaurant ambiance are great - plenty of both. Exposed beams and ducts and a high ceiling with a view of the marina. I think I even saw some water out there!
The food was good -- the beet carpaccio is sublime, and the wood fired pizzas are good (though could use a few more minutes in the oven). One of the pasta dishes we ordered came out a bit too al diente and had to be sent back to the kitchen...and that was sort of the theme of the evening - everything was too rushed. We sat down and within 10 seconds were being asked for our drink orders before we could even open the menu. Once we dispatched the server with those, she was back in about 3 minutes wanting to take our dinner orders. "Take your time" she said when told we were just looking at the menu, then was back 3 minutes later. "Take your time" she said again, clearly not meaning it. She was back in another 3 minutes determined to take our order. One of our group said she wasn't ready and the server said "Well you can go last" and began taking the others' orders. Wow. Then before we were all finished they began clearing the dishes. We are normally really speedy diners but this was ridiculous.
So the wait staff and the kitchen needs to slow down a bit, but there's a lot of good here...the burger with the homemade pickles, the appetizers, the beer selection.... it was all very good.
Give it a try and if they tell you to take your time..... take your time!!!
