Loved this place, nice selection on the menu, staff very friendly and accommodating. Quite a busy restaurant but there is a room off to the side for somewhere quieter. Excellent range of craft beers on tap and bottled. Good parking facilities.

Really enjoyed this place. The pasta and salad were wonderful. Best food I've had so far on my trip to California. The portions were HUGE. The "family platter for 2-3" fed 5! Would very much like to return!

Our server Gerald Q. was awesome! Our meals were delicious as always. I just wished we lived closer, as the food here is delicious and the service is friendly& prompt. Menu selection is overwhelming, but I always devour a skillettini.

This place has gone to hell... I get they changed the format but the service sucks something fierce... Unless you are literally at the bar good luck getting service. I had to get up twice and ask for service. And food didn't come out together....More
