The heritage tomato salad and the burger were very good. The service was pleasant but initially slow - a misplaced order ticket. The main room was noisy. Since the food was so good and fresh, we would certainly go there again.

I can't wait to return to this place. Jalapeño corn chowder was fantastic. Gish tacos and chicken sandwich were both great. Wished I had gotten the Greek salad with heirloom tomatoes. It looked amazing.
