When the waiter seated us next to the 2-burner stove and the wine refrigerator, we were confused and asked to be seated at any of the other wide open tables. When the waiter espied our bottle of wine and described the $15 corkage fee, we were confused and asked about the $9 corkage fee indicated on the website. When the waiter served the room-temperature main courses with the cold vegetable sides, we were confused but didn't ask anything until the owner inquired about our dining experience. When she stoutly defended her establishment and chastised us for not complaining immediately after the food was served, we were confused and asked for the check. When we got outside, we laughed until tears rolled down our cheeks. What a hellish evening!

My wife and I dined here on Saturday, January 22, 2005, and could not have been more satisfied four ways:
1-great service
2-great food
3-wonderful ambience
4-well worth the moderate price ($75 for two with salads, entrees,a bottle of wine, and dessert)

Located in a nondescript shopping center in the heart of Torrance, this is a gem.
