Four of us went for lunch. They start you off with citrus water, honestly it tasted like plain water to me. They then bring you some popcorn, I would have rather had rolls or breadsticks.

All in all overpriced eaterie trying to be chic. The food is not very good and was disappointing. I was looking forward to a nice dinner but was disappointed.

Wonderful restaurant with unique menu and nice atmosphere. Expensive but worth it for special occasion. It's a BYOB so bring a bottle of wine. Outside patio nice with good weather.

Fortunately we didn't mind sitting and waiting because one waitress was handling the lunch crowd on a Saturday. Ordered soup - miso with parsnip which was good. The quiche ($11) was supposed to be spinach, red onion, and red pepper but instead got a sausage quiche. : ( It was swapped out. Unfortunately the quiche had a very soggy crust.... More
