We enjoyed a wonderful meal with our family. The food was well prepared and presented with style. The fish taco appetizer is a meal on its own. The Beet salad was delicious and has a nice balance of flavors. The Beef Short ribs were outstanding....More

The place is very nice, the attention is good, but the variety of the lunch menu is not that great and most of it is light food. My wife has the fish tacos and she was disappointed. I had the salmon and it was ok.
