This is a favorite restaurant of us. In particular we like the seared white tuna.
The restaurant is very popular and for good reasons.

We ordered appetizers and main courses for a group of four. The appetizers AND main courses came at exactly the same time. When I said something, the waiter said " didn't you want them at the same time?" Now that's a first! Instead of saying sorry and taking care of it, I get a smart answer. They took the mains away---where they sat getting cold, while we wolfed down the appetizers. A pork, tuna dumpling was just awful and catfish tacos were a bit better. After finishing, the waiter asked us in a snarky way if he could now serve our mains. The mains--pork in 3 ways, were doused with so much greasy, sweet sauce, we just couldn't eat much, especially since they were all cold. Pitcher of Sangria was 80% ice. Overall, a horrible experience. Very nosiy.

This used to be my favorite restaurant. When it changed hands, I was wary and held off going for quite a while. I finally tried it again last night and was very disappointed; the restaurant I loved has gone downhill. The food just was not up to its previously high standard. Tuna taco was no longer irresistible, the bones were mediocre. Not worth it for the price any longer.

Great menu with a variety of unique drinks, appetizers and entrees. Service was good. When one of our six appetizers did not arrive within a few minutes of the others we flagged down the server who apologetically got a replacement and informed us there would not be a charge for it. All of the food was extraordinary and well prepared with the exception of a steak.The steak was ordered medium but arrived truly rare. It was sent back and a while later arrived charred, tough and tasteless. The restaurant is relatively small, densely packed crowded and quite noisy. At least on this Saturday night it would not seem ideal for family or romantic conversation and might be overwhelmingly noisy for children. Still, we will likely return for the fantastic food, just would go on a quieter (hopefully) day or time, rather than a Saturday night.
