“Expensive, but you get what you pay for”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Huge portions do not pique my interest, flavour and ingredients are what brings me back to a restaurant. I would eat here again. The prices are expensive and the portions are small, but the quality and taste are amazing. Elk sliders with smoked catsup, lightly breaded halibut nuggets with garlic cream sauce, bacon wrapped green beans with spicy mustard sauce, all small plates with huge flavour. The mixology behind the bar is fantasic, I suggest the French Margarita, drinks you would expect to find in an upper echelon club or bar in a big city. The wine selection is excellent, with generous pours. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. There is a happy hour which brings some relief on the price of cocktails and a more limited menu with cheaper prices. If youre a person with a huge appetite perhaps try this place for a drink and appy then head to town for a more traditional meal.

“Don't waste your money, way overpriced and tiny portions.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

My title says it all. Don't waste your money or your time. There are far better places to eat in Long Beach where you get great food and your wallet won't be emptied in the process.

“Surprisingly excellent”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We had been warned by family that had eaten here previously to look out for bad service and small portions. We did not find that at all. We had wonderful and attentive service. Their free range chicken strips were the best I have EVER eaten. Homemade chips were awesome. Crab was very fresh and the herb butter served with it was delicious. If you are used to Denny's and Red Lobster kind of food, this is not that experience - the food is the highest quality and ordered al la cart. A wonderful surprised on our trip and would recommend to anyone how values a good deal on exceptional food in a great environment.
