The menu changes regularly based on season and availability of fish and vegetables. Locally grown bison is usually available as a burger

Took our friends here for their first visit. Reservations are highly recommended - even in the off season. Food is ridiculously fresh, and the entrees are very creative. We had Mako, Mahi, pork, and crab cakes at our table. Three were excellent - the crab...More

Love this place! They are very accommodating of folks with food allergies. The food is always creatively assembled and made with local ingredients. Can't go wrong with the bison burger, fish tostada, and beet and berry salad, to name a few regular items. They try...More

It was wonderful to find this, "couldn't be better" restaurant open during off-season in OC. With reservations, we were seated immediately as we walked in, albeit crowds without reservations were backed up out of the door. The food was top of the line in preparation...More

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

real food * from scratch We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.
