    The Oyster are a must... I think they were the special not sure regular item on menu... Olive Oil cake is a nice touch to end.

    Not my favorite, but then again, I'm not fond of overpriced creamy French not so flavorful food. Good for groups.

    Maybe on par with Altura; definitely one of the best restaurants on the hill.

    Mediterranean chicken wings, heirloom salad, beef kebab, panna cotta, crepes...everything we tried was wonderful.

    Absolutely delicious French food. Make sure to get the bacon-wrapped rabbit.

    Almost everything I've ever had here was good. Check out the art. Some of it is by the owner and one of the waitresses Anna.

    Monday nights pop-up Middle Eastern restaurant is amazing. Stuffed zucchini and smoky eggplant dip were my favorites.

    Service sucks. Literally all the tables got water bottles, I didn't. Racist maybe?

    John Michael Reyes · July 15, 2013

    Get the pork rinds to start.

    Brunch with.... pork rinds. Don't judge me!

    Duck terrine was excellent. I had a merguez sausage special that blew me away with flavor.

    If you sit at the bar open the egg for a tasty surprise!

    Word on the street is the burger is superb

    The mushroom bread pudding is amazing.

    The changing menu is dependably shot through with a strong Mediterranean streak. If you’re a pork rind person, these ones are housemade, fun with cocktails, and locally famous. Read more

    Excellent cocktail menu

    The rabbit tenderloin special was alright. Try Local 360 in Belltown versions.

    Try vegetable fritters, mushroom tart, trifle, salted chocolate caramel tart -- oh just try everything.

    Order the Star Gazer.

    Ryan Bello · June 25, 2011

    The lamb is a must have not to mention the chocolate salted caramel tart. OMG! So yummy. Sit at the counter & introduce yourself to Manu or Monica "in the middle". Either one will take care of you.

    Skip-chicken wings, beef shank, duck breast Order-fingerling salad, mackerel, banana split

    Recommend the Champs Élysées, Star Gazer & Game. Pork Belly "Pozole Rojo" was phenomenal!

    Pork rinds and churros are magical.

    Old fashioned is too watered down. Hendricks martini (with a cucumber) hit the spot.

    Shane Schnell · November 20, 2010
  • Ross G.

    The stallion was interesting and worth a taste. Not particularly strong but good. The salumi plate was worthwhile although the chutney is super sweet and a bit much. Great atmosphere and friendly staf

    You can get every wine by the glass and its priced at the same rate as if you are buying a bottle, nice touch!

    Great pumpkin pie right now. And leg of lamb is delicious as well
