Crowded, a bit slow, but really good and unusual selections. Fun to watch the cook at the grill... he's really talented. Don't expect fancy, but go for excellent offerings in a fun setting. But, bring your patience.

The service was slow. We were served when every other person had eaten and left . . . and we had not been the last to enter. I do not have an explanation for that. The chef and server had an argument. And the food...More

Very much enjoyed the lunch. Both wife and I ordered the fish of the day, mercy, and received 2 totally different and delicious dishes that we just had to share. Well worth taking a little time.

This place is a total whole in the wall, which is my favorite type of place. We got the special of dungeoness crab w/shrimp omelets and mimosa's and both were great. They did not skimp on the seafood!

Seriously, the toast is so good, I ate it even though I can't eat butter. Serious pain ensued. Worth every bite. The jalapeno jelly is a score. The chef is top notch- like watching an artist. The service is fast passed but kind. Small spot...More
