    I've heard it's good and I'm sure it is, but my limited experiences were nothing extraordinary, especially considering many food and drink items were fairly expensive.

    A little pricey, but well worth it if you enjoy good food in an intimate setting. A rare combo in Ballard

    This restaurant is better than good. But the thing pictured here is described on the menu as 'pizza.' and without irony. Seriously Maria Hines?
