As soon as you walk in you think "wow, this is a nice restaurant". The high top area appears warm and inviting. Even though the restaurant was only 15-20% full, we were seated in a corner next to a table that was being used as a service staging area. We felt somewhat segregated. The wait staff is nice but not very well trained. The menu has some wonderful choices. Unfortunately, the quality of the food product is slightly less than what is described. The cost was high for what is provided during your dining experience.

Everyone has different expectations when eating out. I will allow you make your own decision. With so many other restaurants in the area, it's hard to say whether or not I would dine here again.

The restaurant is well designed with indoor and air conditioned outdoor dining. Great looking bars with a nice variety of cocktails. An amazing happy hour menu from 4-7 nightly. Can’t wait to go back!

This place is awesome. Delicious menu. The Roasted Cauliflower is AMAZING. Can't wait to go back and try something different. Only one thing...if you go at night, bring a flashlight. Hard to see menu cuz the lighting is low.

The ambience was pleasant until the acoustic guitar player started singing. We did not care for his voice, and the music was quite loud.

Otherwise, the food was very good, service was outstanding, slightly overpriced

It was our anniversary dinner. Jorge and Sandra made it very enjoyable. They sure and anniversary dessert was presented to us. They only problem with the restaurant is that it needs a private party room. We were seated next to a loud party of around 40 people. Good food.

We came here about a year ago for brunch and the experience was so lovely (attentive, welcoming & friendly staff, delicious food, free valet, etc) that we told ourselves we had to return some day for dinner. We finally returned last night with much excitement and high expectations. Unfortunately, we were let down. There food was good, not great and the service was a mixed bag. We were not made to feel welcomed when we arrived, as we were in our past experience. There hostess was mostly in a rush, not properly greeting people and it was unorganized. On the other hand, Gary, our waiter was polite and attentive. Thank goodness for him. Overall, not a bad experience but no longer a memorable one either.

Went on Mother’s Day for the brunch menu we saw here on open table. When we arrived, they let us know they did not serve brunch... but because it was Mother’s Day we knew we probably wouldn’t find another place to eat and decided to give the menu a chance. The food was great, but the tables all seemed dirty and service was just okay. May come back but not for anything special

Great atmosphere good menu a bit pricey but good. Drinks and made weak or good depends on who makes them. This is my 4th time there and it varies each time. As for service not bad but it takes forever for someone to come to the table or come back. This is not Brazil so let’s train the staff and have the manager make sure everyone gets service. This time we stood at the door no hostess for 5-10min then walked and sat at a table no one came. Then went to the bar and sat to eat and drink. It was a slow night Tuesday but that means pay attention more in my opinion

Love the food, ordered the tuna Tatar for starters....if my eyes had been closed and someone fed me the tuna l would never guessed I was eating fish! Super fresh! Wow, I ordered the octopus, tender, best I tasted in awhile! My husband had the skirt steak with fries....he said it was perfect....guitar playing in the background was also great! Already recommended to friends, see you again with family!

This a great restaurant for any occasion. It works for casual dinner, date night, special occasion you name it. Our service and food was fantastic. The hostess greeted us promptly when we arrived. Our whole party was not there yet, so we went to the bar. The bartender was friendly, attentive and very helpful with suggested menu items. Great first impression from when we walked in that was followed up by a great long lasting impression from the whole experience. Highly recommend this restaurant. The menu is diverse which allows better choices for a mixture of people. We were a party of six and everyone in the party came out of the night with the same impression. Our party ranged in age from 26-84. It was enjoyed by all.

Parking is a bit tight so instead of putting any effort into finding a parking spot we decided to valet . $3 plus a tip. This is in the plaza with Parlour Vegan Bakery and the dry cleaners.

Nicely decorated and the bar opens to the outside.

We were seated at a nice, quiet table for two in the corner and we arrived in time to take advantage of the happy hour prices.

I opted for 3 starters and they were all delish. The fish taco had 2 good size pieces of fish and a creamy green sauce, not much else. The tostada was my favorite. Crusty bread, creamy cheese and fresh, earthy mushrooms. The spinach empanada was good too.

My husband got a calzone.

When we first ordered, the server said our meals would come out at different times because they came from a different part of the kitchen. I'm sure i make a funny face, then asked him to have everything come out together - he was able to accommodate.

Our server was more attentive at the beginning of our meal than when it was served. I wish he had come around when the meal was served because the calzone wasn't hot. Though it looked like it just came out of the oven, my husband was convinced that it had been cooked earlier and just reheated - and it wasn't hot all the way through. He didn't complain when the server did finally came around, it was too late and he had eaten quite a bit of it by then. That was the only negative.

Just as we were getting ready to leave, they were setting up for live music. If we didn't need to get to our next destination, i would have liked to stay a bit longer to enjoy the music.

We'll go back.
