Tasty recipes, moderate portions, ample menu selection. Very flavorful guacamole. Servers/proprietors are attentive and respectful. Limited, rotating draft beer selection; a bit overpriced at $6 per glass.

We used to love the food and service at 12 west however over the past 6 months, both have gone downhill due to change in management. I hope they can rebound as the food can be really good.
