“Good start but a long way to go.”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Moved into their own space and off to a good start. Entrees were excellent. Everybody enjoyed their selection. Starters were good. Limited menu and by 6:45 they were out of one of the entrees. By the time we got to dessert, they were out of one of those. Poor planning. Everybody but the chef are learning their trade. Very friendly, but don't expect superior service. At the prices they charge, you should be able to expect great service and great food. Food is there but everything else needs work.

“Great. Food”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We bother loved our meals. Husband had flank steak, which he devoured. I had duck, which was awesome. Not five stars because of the beet salad. Good, but way small for the price. The bread was special. They could use Brea plates too. Its new, so they're learning. I definitely recommend it.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Have been several times, consistently some of the best I have ever tasted. This is a high class meal, great for a date or just family, lovely atmosphere and servers, very creative presentation and certainly gourmet. Prices range from $8 to $28 and worth every penny. Wide range of foods as well and vegetarian options.

“Nothing backdoor about this place!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Love pretty much everything about this place. My husband and I have been here twice. We always go with the pre-fixe menu. We have never been disappointed. It is a small location but the service and food are top notch...Yum!!
