I visited several times this week while on business. Happy hour menu has good options: octopus, coconut shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, salmon flatbread so the place is packed early. If you can get a seat, service is slow. Not enough help for the rush. That's on...More

Great for appetizer and happy hour. Sit at the bar if possible. Get there early if it's concert season downtown. Like the drinks and staff. Apps are good.

We waited almost an hour to receive our entrees, which tasted very good but not excellent. The waitperson did not seem sufficiently attentive to keep us informed of the progress, but the other wait staff seemed very nice and attentive (serving water, etc.)

Hi I have no idea what the menu looks like. I do know that the upstairs dining room has been used by all types of functions and when I have asked people who have been attending, they were pleased with the arrangements.

We simply call it Sunny California Cuisine; "from farm to table" our food is the freshest, seasonal ingredients found right here locally in California supplied by our community of artisans, farmers and purveyors.
