    Order a sirloin slider, truffle fries and the house wine at the bar before 7 p.m. for weekday happy hour, and then move outside to watch the sunset and really unwind. Read more

    One of my fave romantic restaurants. The outside seating is cute and cozy. Their bacon wrapped dates were amazing. Had their salmon, and it was great too. All in all, 10/10.

    The outdoor garden + a bottle of wine + a cheese and charcuterie plate + truffle fries = the most delicious romantic thing ever.

    The olives are good & meaty, went well w/the bruschetta sheep's milk ricotta. The pork belly skewers are juicy big bites of flavor, & went well w/the marinara sauce. Free brownies when u check in!

    Great atmosphere. Sat in front of the fire pit/place. Self serving wine station - heart of Santa Monica. Got the brownie bites for checking in. I'll definitely frequent this place

    Good vibes, great happy hour specials, bar is always full of a fun/sophisticated crowd, but you can get caught in the tourist scene a bit.

    Pork belly skewers were delicious but I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture. I liked that it came with greens

    Great rooftop. Nice choice of wine but some of the staff didn't really seem to be happy to be there...

    A great place to meet new people and have a half a glass of wine. Been going here since the day it opened. Very crowded.

    Beet salad is great & has avocado! Veggie pizza was stellar too. If you're conflicted, choose beet salad over Petaluma chicken salad

    The green lights in the trees make it a bit too Disney California Adventure. Perfect for the Iowa set... a little too manufactured.

    We waited 30 mins before 1 of the 3 in my party got their dinner (pizza) while we ate and finished before her. Then I was not given my 4square checkin special, even after mentioning it to the manager!

    Truffle fries are good. Spicy lamb meatball pasta was anything but. Hamburger lacked flavor. Service was ok. Price was ok. Over all, it's a "eh". Might go back to try something else. Maybe

    Good food. Beet risotto balls were interesting. Poor wine selection. Poor service. 90 minutes' free parking.
