Business meeting. Just needed a table to talk over some details with an associate. I had a salad and he had a sandwich. The wait staff person was excellent. Very attentive and super polite. Impressive service!

While we often visit the location on 17th St. In Tustin, we don't go as often as we used to. When the menu was altered from a New Orleans flair to evoke French countryside cuisine, the restaurant chain actually lost some of its charm for...More
