    Their beignets are to die for! Absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is great and service is punctual and delightful. Currant has a great brunch in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter!

    This place is awful. Rude server and food heated up so hot you can't even eat it. Won't be making a trip back.

    Friendly bar staff and chefs! The crab and avocado app is a winner and the desserts are delectable. Don't miss out on the 1/2 price cocktails during happy hour. Plenty of bang for your buck!

    The duck burger is not actually a "duck burger" but a beef burger w/ a duck egg on top. Oops! But a great wait staff helped me fix my reading goof. Also try the Old Broadway.

    "Tater tots" are not really tater tots. They are fried mashed potatoes. Try them they are great.

    Candied leek and goat cheese salad was delicious. Not very vegetarian friendly place though :(

    I did a yelp check in for the special for my 1st time because the yelp offer is better than the foursquare one.

    Ask for Peter--he's a really great server! Go for the bottomless mimosa brunch on the weekends--only $8!

    Great little American eatery attached the The Sofia Hotel. You cannot leave without ordering the goat cheese stuffed zucchini flowers. Great drinks too, but most importantly, mega-cute bar staff.

    The Sofia hotel may be old, but the flavors here aren't. Each wine compliments their stellar plates, that are filled with nothing but amazing taste, and phenomenal presentation.

    Nice place, cool but not too pricey, in the Hotel Sofia. Back for the turkey burger and thyme fries before hitting the hay after a looong day of work and travel.
