Description: What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

The food was OK - I don't know what everyone raves about. Bread dipped in garlic oil is something others go wild for - it didn't do anything for me. I've eaten there 2 or 3 times and it is always SO noisy. Great place for families - not a relaxing atmosphere at all. There's a small bar with about 6 or 8 seats and all the young workers hang around the bar waiting to pick up their drinks. It felt like we were on the set of "90210"

Yes, the bread (really the dip) is very good. BUT, the 3 dishes we got were all mediocre or worse. Go only for appetizers and drink if you can't get in anywhere else nearby.

Below average food. Average service. Not many choices. The salmon was bland. The flavors in the wonton was, well, unrefined, had very strong ginger overtones. Calamari was too bready. Sugar snap peas tasted dry.
The complimentary bread and the cheese-oil dip was tasty though. All in all... I am not going back there again

We had a wonderful dinner experience here. The bread was amazing and everything else was not far behind! Everything was very fresh and tasty. Even my extremely picky 4 year old was pleased. Our server Aindrea was top notch. Excellent value!
