    The food was absolutely amazing, bottomless mimosas for Sunday brunch, although service was a bit slow, still an amazing place!!

    Outdoor seating is like a little courtyard to enjoy a romantic dinner with your loved ones. We had a Bolognese pasta, the Steak Sandwich, the Mediterranean Pasta and dessert. They were all delicious!

    Best at happy hour. Great selection of food and drinks. Extremely dog friendly. The Moscow Mules on tap are pricey but delicious.

    Food is really good. It said they closed qt 12am but when we got there the server told us the kitchen was closing at 10pm and we had to order quick. Other than that everything was great.

    The Hummus with crispy herb and olive oil brushed lavish is a perfect share before the happy hour larger dishes.

    Try the Squash Blossoms with ricotta cheese and truffle honey on the Happy Hour menu. Delicious. Also on Friday's and Saturday's they have DJ's in the lounge from 10:00pm to 1:00pm.

    Great service, although I have to say the bus boys/gals do do most of the work fair play (not just here everywhere)!

    Miranda · March 28, 2013

    Get the squash blossoms, arancini and bacon wrapped dates! Amazeballs! Oh and try a moscow yum!

    Terrible place for brunch. Been here an hour and food has still not shown up yet. Not coming back

    Really picaresque spot with outdoor seating. Even when raining (rare), there are canopies.

    John Cassillo · December 20, 2012
  • Joshua S.

    Ask for Joshua as a server, bring your dog for outdoor seating at brunch, and try the banana filled French Toast. You'll thank me!

    Dog friendly patio!

    Eat the octopus. You won't regret it and neither will she. Then ask the bartender for a Purity martini (and specify that you'd prefer he stir it). The trend in this part of LA is to shake them.

    You must try an Old Fashioned here. Amazing.

    I'd be surprised if this restaurant is still open in 6 months without a lot of MAJOR changes

    Don't bother coming here. They've been open for 4 months now and EVERYTHING went wrong. Every table around us got their check before their food arrived...'nuff said
