“Quiet Little Hideaway”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I thought the stuffed chicken dish was terrific. A very pleasant surprise. My only complaint was all the TVs showing sports in such a nice restaurant.

My waiter Kyle was very pleasant and attentive.

“Worth the stop”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We ate there twice due to staying at the Sophia. Each time the food was good. Appetizers were excellent and the prices cheaper than I was expecting.

“Happy Hour, Happy Day”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Good HH specials that runs most of the night (except 7-9, I believe). If you like Mac 'n Cheese...GO FOR IT! Bar food with a definite upscale twist!

“Ask for Kyle”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Kyle the bartender was very accommodating on a recent group happy hour to this streetside cafe. It is too noisy on the street for my taste but the inside is nice. I would skip the duck confit popcorn - I like duck confit and popcorn, but the combination was not a hit to anyone in our group. The calamari on the other hand was excellent and I ate way too much of it.

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Found this place on Open Table. Decided to try it out even though it's slightly off the beaten path from the gas lamp district. It was packed and now I know for good reason. Everyone one at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the prices are refreshingly reasonable. Highly recommend!
