We only went for drinks and the wine list was very impressive.Great service and fair prices for some very good wines. If you are looking for a restaurant that has an excellent choice of wines, this is it.

We were in a private room for our visit. I enjoyed the room. While it only had curtains separating it from the main dining room, there was not a lot of activity in the main dining room to create a disturbance for us. The room was ample size to allow us to stand and chat a bit before we were... More

Friends took us for the first time while we were visiting. Great food, surprisingly attractive interior (compared with the street view), and very attentive service. One of the old school types of restaurants where the waiters take the orders and serve them to the right guests without asking, "Who had the...."! Friendly and charming waiters. Owner/Chef wandering about talking with... More

This restaurant has consistently great food, exceptional service and a special ambiance (including the garden in front where they "harvest" lots of vegetables -- a new take on farm to table). Have been eating here regularly since the restaurant opened and have never been disappointed.

Boar, duck, pheasant, pasta, grass-fed filet mignon, seafood stew, octopus, WOW! What a selection of food, and of course wine. Food is ala carte, so if you want truffle mashed potatoes or vegetables to go with your steak, you have to order it. If you're into all these exotic foods, you should try it. But, it you're not, it may... More

Went here for a business lunch; place is tucked just beyond the highway. Sat immediately - has a nice wine them decor and when you walk in there is a bank of refrigerators with wines with people's name on it. Not sure if they store it for people when they come in or what that was about but interesting nonetheless.... More

My family came here for dinner after seeing a musical matinee at Segerstrom Hall, so we were probably the first patrons in the restaurant. Of course we were seated immediately, and brought ice water and bread while we perused the menu. We ordered the calamari, octopus ceviche and pepper appetizers, which were all very good. The octopus in particular was... More

We are visiting from Portugal, visiting with local friends, who thought this place was both convenient and worthy. We arrived early, as the place was gearing up and were greeted by the waiter, who was very helpful. The food was an Americanised type of Italian, and our choices were very different. We had what was billed as Roast Perkins Duck,... More
