You can't go wrong here. The menu is limited to ten to 20 main items, but each is outstanding. You may need to watch carefully for the address since the restaurant intentionally understates its signage and frontage. Highly recommended.

We have never had a bad meal here and everything is first rate. North on Altadena and that is my reference to BigFoot and they have a poster that displayed that gave me the idea. Whether you like the small plate or larger entrees, everything...More

A friend told my husband to take me there because we're foodies. And he was right to suggest it! Not in a neighborhood where one usually would expect to go to a eatery serving cuisine -- and not just local fare. The service staff was...More

We love eating here. It has a small, cozy atmosphere and delightfully original food. The service has always been excellent. It's a wonderful date night spot.
