I agree with the review from SonomaGrass. They just don't get it completely right and because of that, I'm not sure we'll return. My entree was served room temp although my dinner companion's same dish was steaming hot. Neither one of us was very happy with the dish. Someone at the table ordered the pork belly entree which should have been part fat but this entree was all fat. The Pot de Creme dessert was lacking in something very important- flavor. Too bad the food was not great because we liked the room and ambience a lot.

Just not great. We checked out the menu before going and felt intrigued. Getting right to the point The fresh herbs used throughout each item we ordered was a bright and flavorful addition to each dish. Our table ordered the roasted corn and dandelion green salad, watermelon salad, squash blossoms, sole entree, farro entree, and quinoa entree. The salads were tasty. The blossoms were filled with too much ricotta. The sole was a bit over cooked therefore dry. The farro had entirely way too much cream and cheese. The vegetables that came with the quinoa tasted nice and fresh. We passed on dessert.

Wether you come at sunset for the views on the patio upstairs at cocktail hour or come for brunch on Sunday it is the best! The wait staff is always happy and helpful, and we really enjoy comming on Sundays for our brunch. Located in our little beach town in Leucadia right across from our coaster and next to Whole foods. The menu for brunch is very extensive and soooo good! Yummy bloody Mary's . You can eat downstairs in their restaurant which is nicely decorated, but we enjoy upstairs either inside where the bar is or on the patio. Either one is Awsome because they roll open all the windows which are floor to ceiling and the breeze and ocean is there!!! The oysters on the 1/2 shell is great and every appetizers we have had are good! Come and enjoy a little piece of paradise in my home town you will not be disappointed!

Stumbled upon this place by accident, food and drink were good it was more about ambience. Nice little second level patio seating with view for sunsets. Industrial architecture which lends to somewhat noisy atmosphere. Fun place to go for drinks and appetizers.
