Artichoke appetizer was good, but a bit too heavy on the coating. Short Ribs were excellent, as was the ravioli. Place was crowded, but service was good. Nice wine selection. Loved the grenache syrah blend. Ended the meal with creme brulee, which was also delicious.

Toma is always tasty and original. The gnocci with fava beans and local shrimp is delicious. The best appetizer is the ahi cone. THe cone is a unique blend of seeds and ground nuts.
