    Horrible food and even worse service. I suggest looking elsewhere for food or drinks.

    The bar area smells like body odor. Eat outside or order very aromatic food!

    Service was not that great for such a small place, but the food was great and the prices were fine. Large plates for sharing :)

    Food is somewhat good. Prices are ok. The crab cream cheese puffs are delicious. The service is questionable, I guess it just depends on the server you get.

    Happy Hour Fare is fantastic . . . . Small plates could be shared and therefore try many dishes.

    Check out Walter Earl on Saturday nights this September for some amazing improv jazz. He's a genius, pure talent and soul. Great patio with heat lamps, excellent food and drinks.

    If you're not drinking a Pisco sour on the patio this summer, you're not living!!

    Ask for a Chilcano w Pisco, ginger beer, lemon & bitters on a hot day. So refreshing!!
