Although the restaurant was somewhat “in your face” about social awareness, they feature an extensive menu and all five of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

Nice variety on the menu. Everything from veggie tofu curry to burgers. The chicken and chorizo pasta was delicious. Outdoor seating available. Outdoor was quieter and better for conversation IMO. Nice bar selection. Attentive wait staff. Would go again.

Lovely atmosphere and great space for dinner and drinks. We will definitely be back. They were out of some of the specialty cocktails but I was able to find another yummy substitute.
