    Nice patio with friendly staff. Most of the dishes could have done with 50% less salt. Also, the mousse had far too much sugar.

    Super crowded and loud. The service was poor, and the food is not good. I ordered Stella on tap and had to send two back because they were flat. The ravioli is like goulash and inedible. Zero stars.

    The curry chicken salad is light and refreshing on a hot day. Ask for an *extra* side of the curry dressing, so good!

    The $19.99 3 course meal is hard to beat in this trendy and fun place. Fun to sit outside whilst being cooked by water mist and watching life go by.

    Menu selections & availability are weak. No Brunch menu available at 1:30p on a Sun? I dubiously ordered the ahi tartare. I took a bite and sent it back immediately. Frozen & mealy. Will not be back.

    Yomigod the Tuna Tartare with avocado is to die for! The happy hour vodka martini's? Yeah they are okay. I'm guessing call vodka. Can't really complain, they are dirt cheap and get the job done.
