A small place, well appointed... interesting menu and specials... but the surprise was in the excellence of the food and in the presentation. We went for lunch but the food is easily high-end dinner worthy.

This restaurant is exceptional. Even though we arrived at 8:00 and they close at 9:00 we did not feel rushed at all. The staff was extremly friendly and the food to die for. My husband had an appetizer and pasta and I had the Kale Ceasar and Paella. We could have had just an appetiser and shared a main. We... More

We would try everything on the menu if we lived close. We enjoyed Mussels Tapas, Mushroom Risotto and Rack of Lamb. Don't pass on the opportunity to have great food and service.

We enjoyed the friendly service and the meals. The Salmon special with a delectable relish, the Walnut and Gorgonzola penne, and the Cioppino were all delicious. The Oysters Guadalupe disappointed-breading was too heavy and needed lemon instead of lime. Overall, we liked the atmosphere and would come again.

I used to work there and loved some of the fair, I think the menu has been the same for many years. But the last time I went the new cook put a bit too much garlic in the creamy pasta dish I loved and I felt like my nostrils were rotting the next day. I would like to go... More

I ate here a couple of years ago and was disappointed. This time we went with friends for dinner and had a very good meal. Service was first rate, the food was excellent, and we never felt rushed, even though the place was busy. I would try it again.

We stopped by based on all of the reviews and were not disappointed. We had the Salmon with pasta and a Turkey Reuben with the day's Carrot Ginger Soup. Everything was great, I wish for some chips or fries with the sandwich but the soup was good too.

My husband and I stopped here after seeing the high quality of reviews and we were so glad we did. I had the penne pasta with cream sauce, almond slivers, and chicken. The bread served us was a nice crust with a soft center and avocado butter to go with it. My husband had a delicious turkey sandwich that was... More
