Attractive restaurant with a casual and pleasant ambience. Breakfast is the best. Dinner entrees are OK and I believe overpriced for what you get. Service is spotty. Food quality is inconsistent from one visit to the next. There is both inside and outdoor seating.

We have been here probably 3 or 4 times and the last time was a year ago. Bad service, food not hot, waited forever. The owner was nice and offered us a complimentary dessert. Tried again tonight. Happy to get a seat outside on their beautiful patio - hoping last time was just a fluke. A large table kept our waitress busy and another server brought our drinks and said the kitchen was "backed up'. 45 minutes later after ordering our meal our entrees showed up - never even got our salads. So strange. How does something like that happen? No appetizers or salads and then your entree comes? We were starving and just went ahead and ate. Food was tasty but still not really hot. The waitress checked and she had put the order in, then came back and said that the owner said our meal was free. OK - that was the right thing to do, but you would think the manager or the owner himself would come over and apologize and not leave it to the waitress.We so want to like this place because the location is so pleasant, but something is just not right with the service and kitchen...very disappointing.

We live nearby and occasionally splurge on Mike & Anne's to dine out with the family. The vibe on a warm SoCal evening is friendly and relaxed, especially out on their patio. Go early and dine amongst families with kids and older couples. Go later and you'll see the date-night couples, empty nesters, etc.

The food is reliably good, though not terribly original. Appetizers are all appealing; entrees a little less so. Prices are what you'd expect, neither cheap nor over-priced. If money is not an issue, you'd dine here weekly and enjoy a nice cocktail (now trending toward the artisanal) and then a bottle of wine. For the rest of us, it's more a local special occasion place, a step up from Gus's BBQ or Carmine's, a step down from driving to the Westside or Downtown for a foodie feast at Mozza or Providence.

If you order whatever you please, expect to pay $40-$50/head including drinks. Be a little careful and you can pare that down to $25-$35. Parking is on the street, usually within a couple of blocks. Service can be uneven, but is generally pretty good.

Love this place. Wonderful outdoor seating and indoors looks great as well. Food was great. Service was ok. Could have been faster but we had such a great time and food was so good we didn't care. I'd recommend this if your in this town.

Ate here while staying at the nearby Artists' Inn B&B. Great food and service. Space modern and nice design / layout. Seems very popular locally. Would definitely return. Smart casual.
