“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My date and I stopped here on our way to Cirque du Soleil-Totem in Santa Monica.
Most all of the entrees are like good sized appetizer sizes and run between $5 and $10, with a few running a bit more.
We ordered 4 that we shared and loved all 4.
Bbq pork slides (comes with 2) $8.95, Risotto with Scallops $11.95, Chopped Veggie Salad $6.75, and a Spinach and Apple Salad $6.75. The server was exceptionally helpful and friendly and allowed my date to sample several varieties of wine before she decided.
all in all, a very pleasant and tasty experience.

“Banana brulee super delicious”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Nice and cozy. Warm staff. Tapas style. Small plates. The banana chocolate brûlée was to die for!
We asked different plates and our family of 8 enjoyed the meal.

“Good place for a light and tasty meal”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Very unusual place - hiding on the 3rd floor of the Nordstrom department store. It's actually a proper restaurant with good service and very tasty food. The food is all tapas style - good to go with a friend, choose a couple of dishes each and enjoy sharing. The chicken tacos, lamb kebabs and green beans were all good.

“Amazing for the location”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

One would not think a department store would have such a quality restaurant. We came here based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The heirloom tomato plate was superb. The service was great. The place was quiet. The wine list was not extensive but adequate. If you want a break from the hustle and bustle this is it.
