I've always gone to downtown Mt. View for the ethnic food, but my brother and I popped in here one night for a drink. It was late-ish, about 9pm on a weekday so the bar scene was pretty subdued. We ended up ordering pork belly,...More

Stopped in for a beer, glass of wine at peak cocktail hour and found this place very inviting, despite the alarming prices on the menu (there is a $ 2 discount during happy hour, however). The upside is the place is light and charming, with...More

Interesting place for several reasons. Menu is more than adequate American food with a fair amount of variety. Great seafood (Ahi, mussels, scallops, lobster), pork chop, chicken, filet of beef, lamb, etc., when we were there. Good selection of appetizers (try the mussels) and salads...More

Visited with family. Prices are a bit higher than average but the food, wine and service is good quality as well as a lovely setting. My only slight criticism is that my chicken appeared a little pink in the middle but I just left that...More

PROs: fine environment, light, relatively low noise, nice service, very good food for sure. CONs: if you look for something special, differentiated from others, you may look somewhere else. Scratch has this interesting entrance bar scene, but the overall impression is that they designed it...More
