“Lovely dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013 via mobile

Was there for a dinner with a colleague. Lovely atmosphere, good wine selection and very good service. The spring roll entrée was very good and the vegan plate was delicious. It is nice to have a good vegan alternative for a change.

“Always a wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

This is the second time I have eaten here. We have chosen this spot for a family dinner celebration in the private dining room that overlooks the patio. If weather is nice the drinks and appetizers can be served outside on the patio. Always great food and service here. Unique menu with wonderful presentation. This is a great dining experience. Highly recommend.... built in a converted gas station but you'd never know it now.

“Excellent Night Out in SA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

First time visitor, and not really sure why I haven't been there before. Will definitely be back. Already planning to sit at the chef's table.

Only 1 pinot noir by the glass on the menu-it was a great choice.
Started with the fried oysters and eggrolls. Both were solid choices. My favorite appetizer was actually the sourdough bread and homemade butter! One of the highlights of the meal. Cheese tray was good. Only complaint the whole night-I want a little bit of all the accompaniments with my cheese not just 2. Split the scallops as an entree. 3 large scallops were just enough. Pecan pie was the perfect choice for dessert. I could have eaten the whip cream by itself!

Jason was an excellent helpful waiter.

Other reviews said it was loud, we were sat in the back room by the wine rack and it was very peaceful for a Saturday night.

Looking forward to returning and sitting outside.

“So-so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013

We were really excited about eating at this restaurant, but we were disappointed. The food was ok, my husband had the duck which he liked ok but nothing great - he's had better. I had the halibut and it was very very dry - I almost needed a knife to cut it! And not seasoned well at all. The biggest disappointment was the noise level....this is a very noisy restaurant. The tables are so close together we could hear the conversation of the couples next to us. We had another couple with us and I could hardly hear the person across from me :(. We spent well over $300.00 for four people - not worth it at all.

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2013

We were there for a late dinner with some good friends. The night was so unforgettable (including everything from tasty dishes to very well picked wine and superb servers...) so, we promised to meet here again somehow...
