We enjoyed lunch very much. I had a house made bratwurst sausage that was terrific. My wife enjoyed the halibut tostada. Nice wine list. Restaurant is full of art. Very good, we will go again.

This would truly be a 5 star review if it wasn't for the pompous bartender, who likes to talk about patrons and make snotty comments when they leave. Anyway.....the food was stellar. We had the rabbit tostada which was amazing. Heaped with rabbit, greens, beans, cheese and flavor. It was elegant. We also shared the fried quail. The quail was... More

A family member selected this place for us at the last minute. Whereas the service was WONDERFUL and the food was very good, it was overpriced for lunch. The polenta fries were fantastic and the korean ribs were truly delicious. I will return but, I will do so with a more intimate group (we had 8 people of all ages... More

Maybe it was because we went on a rainy Friday evening and the restaurant was only half-filled ... Maybe it was because we were tired and out of sorts ... or maybe it was because the Kitchen was having an off-night ... whatever the cause, our experience at Cindy's was less than stellar. Oh, the service was good, and the... More

Such a beautifully designed restaurant. Food was beautiful as well. Not a lot for a vegetarian, but meat eaters will be really happy.

We sat in the patio which was delightful. The young woman who took care of us was even more delightful, fun, smart and right amount of service....a rare blend these days. Dinner was perfect. Wish I lived closer, I'd be there often.

Sometimes you barely care about the food because the atmosphere is so incredible lovely. That would be the case at Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen. Fortunately, the food, wine, and cocktails were also spectacular.

I had the Bibimbap and those that joined me had the Pollo Loco, and the quail. There seemed to be too much going on with the BBB and the quail and it really took away from the flavor. I don't think I would go back, honestly, rather disappointed.

I attended a dinner here as part of a party of 15. The food was excellent. We had a number of appetizers and everything was delicious. The wine was lovely (of course!) and the specialty drinks looked divine as well. The staff handled the large group very well even adding another small table when a few unexpected people arrived to...

Your taste buds will laugh with joy! Great menu and nightly specials! MAKE RESERVATIONS! Cute and tucked away it is a great spot for a romantic dinner for two or fun evening for 6! Several cute rooms with a super chill vibe. It's a little $$ but every bite is worth it!
