We arrived about 7:30 pm on Thursday night. It seem that they were already thinking about closing instead of serving us. When our food finally came, my Jambalaya was room temperature at best. My wife's risotto was piping hot. I sent mine back and it came out warm, but not hot. The person that did the change was not the... More

The food and service are spot on. This is a great date restaurant. Not cheap, but worth it. Love the fish dishes.

This was only my 2nd time and we were thrilled. There was no "kid's menu" but they were able to make any dish we wanted, at kid's prices. That made for happy parents! The tomato soup was great and the kale salad, even better! We were a party of 7 and everyone was very pleased with their dish. Will definitely... More

Tucked away from busier Main Street, this is a great place for a quiet lunch or dinner. We were there for lunch. Excellent salads, sandwiches, etc. One of our party had the special lamb salad. Really enjoyed it. Service is attentive but not annoying. Will definitely be back

We visited this restaurant when there was only one other table being served. The food was plentiful but nothing special. Parking is available nearby at night. Services was good but not always present when needed because chatting in the back room. The atmosphere was cold: was it because the restaurant was crowded.

This is a cute restaurant, and has been around for a long time. We went for an early dinner while waiting to make a pick-up at the airport (perfect for that, by the way). We had a nice table outside, but it was still noisy. There was lots of activity, and the place became pretty busy half-way through our meal.... More

Nine of us went to dinner and everyone loved their food. We had burgers, risotto, fish and chips, crab cakes, kale and garden salads as well as a steak. Additionally, we were given checks per couple do we did not have to do the math. The service was friendly and professional. Drinks were kept full and all were very very... More

We stumbled across this place when we were looking for dinner after arriving in town. Glad we tried it. We had the taco special, which was very tasty. They ran out (it was especially popular that day) and the table next to ours were a bit bummed they couldn't partake. The $5 margarita during happy hour was a nice (and... More

We had 7 adults in our party. They had indoor or outdoor seating, we chose inside due to the temp. The inside is a little more cozy. We all had the lobster bisque, not too bad for the west coast. The staff was very attentive and our meal moved along well. Nobody had room for desert, the portions are a... More

A great restaurant in El Segundo!! (yes they do exist) Word of mouth got me to go there, and I have taken a lot of people there as well. I like the atmosphere, the outdoor patio, and the wine tasting evening that they do there. They also have a mailing list to get the schedule of the upcoming wine tastings.... More
