A great gaslamp place for lunch, we selected this place just by reading the menus from the front door and what a great surprise. Awesome decor, relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff . The warehouse style building is clean, with a bar area, a sitting area and the restaurant area which is we're we sat. Selected sandwiches for lunch which were fresh, well presented and a good sizefor the price. The chips are to die for. Will be going back again for lunch before we leave.

Food is yummy!! Small plates are big enough to be entrees!! Spicy shrimp and grits-YUM!!! Dessert also is amazing!! The black cherry tart and doughnuts are sooo super yummy!!!
Service is superb!! Waitress checked on us many times during dining and was very nice :)
Atmosphere is great for a fun night out!! Decor is very contemporary.
The bar area does have tvs to watch the game and there is lounge music playing in the background.

We went in with expectations that were not met. The staff was not warm, yet rude and treated each guest differently as we observed from our initial call, to our departure. Food runner was horrible...know the food and smile at the guests...you aren't that much better than your clientele. Then...flirting right after you dropped our food and gushing over some drunk guys...pathetic. The bartender was nice and very suggestive, even though he forgot to ring in our main entree. We enjoyed the shrimp, chorizo and polenta appetizer. Next, we had the pork belly which was a descent dish besides the over cooked egg that it came with as an accompaniment. Cheese puffs were average...serve them warm Brian! Finally, our NY steak was ordered MR and came out Mooo-ing and unrested, bleeding like a stuck pig! Rest your meats kitchen. Again, served with a sunny side up egg, disappointingly REALLY over cooked and crispy. No beautiful yolk was present ): All in all, the food has potential! Get rid of the rude blonde that answers the phone and seats people. When we arrived at 9:38, she said "the kitchen closes in 20 minutes and it's a 20 minute wait at this point.". You do the math! I replied "Can we sit at the bar?". She replied "If you want...you can seat yourself". Customer service people...I think that they feel they are above the rest. Let's see if Chef Malarkey can deliver service and food in his next concept in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Atmosphere, food, drinks! Perfect place to go with a date or group of friends if you want an excellent meal in the gaslamp district. Not quiet. Excellent service and no one tried to usher us out when we were done with our dinner and drinks and just having a conversation in our group.

While I don't understand how halibut is the 2nd most expensive thing on the menu (by far).....I truly love this restaurant. Great vibe. Great location. Believe it or not --- the chicken is outstanding. The corn.....amazing. Caesar salad --- wow. Big, big fan.
