Horrible Restaurant! Don't waste your time or money!
We went to dinner here last week. Menu on a chalkboard as soon as you walk in the door. Dinner ranged from $17 to $32. You have to pick up your own utensils, pick up your own plate, fill your own water glasses, get your own napkin and bring them to your table. One of us ordered the bread plate...it was 4 pieces of black charred bread..this was $9. The food was mediocre and we felt ripped off. A big and long curly hair was in the pasta. Absolutely no service. No one ever comes by your table and asks if you need anything, You are on your own here. We are locals who will never come here again. Prices outrageous. We call it the Salmonella Saloon. Don't waste your money. Oh and we were told by the chalkboard cashier that the bar was a warmer place to eat not the dining room. Whoever owns this place has no idea how to run a good restaurant. We will NEVER go here again. Yucky. Oh and you have to bus your own dishes. What a joke this place is. Locals hate it.
Great food, great location
We stopped by on a warm, sunny evening, lots of cars outside but plenty of room inside as there were a lot of people on the deck eating dinner. Food is served family style, there is plenty to share and the food was really good! They have a nice bar with a lot of seating. All the wait staff were very friendly.
Not worth the hype
Surprisingly mediocre meal. Not enough sauce for shrimp/pea pasta; bolognese pasta had a few lumps of meat in it; and a generic white wine. The ingredients seemed cheap. All the food was very bland. The experience was more like a cafeteria than a relaxing dining experience. You order at the desk when you first come in and the menu is on a chalk board; there's no real time to study the menu. The lady at the desk and the person who brought our meal were both very nice; the man who brought our drinks was a little brusque. The setting is nice. We won't be back.
Used to be good, NOW badly prepared food, no service & bus your table
Waiting for this restaurant to reopen, we were excited to go back. We'd eaten there many times for lunch and dinner, and it was one of the best around - and there aren't many. The owners buy from local farms and producers so it's not the ingredients - it's the preparation. We both had different pasta dishes. Mine was vegetarian with hazelnuts, the other contained ground lamb. They both needed seasoning. One of the worst mistake chefs make is to under season fresh food. Our food had no flavor except odd background flavors that put us off. Neither of us ate more than 1/4 of our meals. The Ceasar salad also had no flavor: no lemon, no garlic and didn't even taste like Ceasar salad. We had to order at a counter, grab a tray and implements while there, sit and wait for food and then bus our table at the end. And if you want a second beverage, get up and go get it. The only food we got (which we had to pay for and so thankful we did) was the delicious bread the restaurant buys from Wolf Moon Bakery. We both loved it, brought the leftovers home and ate it all. Our pastas and salad went into the bin when we bussed our own table. The bill for this mess was $92.00 and the person paying (pre eating) left a 20% tip when ordering. Any good reviews you see must be old. Never again.
Would go back again and again!
Had a delicious dinner last night. Everything seasoned perfectly. Order your drinks and food with a hostess, get your number and find a place to sit. There are about 6 tables on the outside deck facing the bay which have gorgeous views, many tables inside, and then another set of tables outside facing the parking lot area. Runners will bring you your drinks and food when it’s ready. Our only negative was that our drinks and food could have been paced better. We received our drinks last and our appetizers came within minutes of our main course which made us rush to eat everything while it was still warm. Restaurant was very clean and employees were all very friendly.
