My husband and I were looking for a restaurant near the Balboa Theater that served light dinners. Encore Champagne Bar was perfect. Their champagne list was extensive enough that you could pick a very good inexpensive champagne or a great but expensive champagne. There are dishes which could be shared. We loved the clams with homemade sausage. My husband enjoyed his hamburger. I loved the duck confit risotto. We also shared the hazelnut pot of creme topped with chocolate. We definitely will return the next time we go to the theater downtown.

We had a wonderful brunch at the Encore Champagne Bar & Dining Room. We passed on the bottomless Mimosa and went for a bottle of Prosecco that was excellent. The Duck Hash was very tasty as was the Monte Cristo sandwich.

This felt like more of a dance club than a brunch spot. We sat on the patio outside but could hear the club music from inside the entire time. The food was pretty good and the mimosas were good, but I had a better brunch experience at Café 21. Nothing particularly wrong with this place, just wasn't my favourite in the area.

Wide variety of small plates, in addition to full entrees.
