Excellent food. I have never had even a mediocre dish here and we try to go every year. It is a splurge, but definitely worth it.

The specials for lunch always seem to be top-notch. Recently, carnitas tacos were so savory and good (which I shared with a friend), I stopped myself from ordering another plate. Can be busy, so prepare yourself for a wait. Recommended for lunch, so I need to get down there for dinner, since the salad, sandwich and pasta menus look amazing.

Stopped here on a road trip. It was very quirky but food was excellent. You order at the counter and the server brings what you ordered to your table. Friday's the special is Cajun halibut tacos. Really tasty. We also ordered a bean burger that had avocado on it. It was good too. Some previous reviews complained about the clam... More

I went here a couple of times. I liked the bar because it wasn't as bright. The window seats are great for people watching esp if a cruise ship is in port. The food was really pretty good. Liked it enough to go back 2 more times.

A very unique and trendy place....something that I did not expect to see in Astoria. Love the decor.....in the back there are chairs and a couch (very homie!) which I wish we would have sat (next time we will!). The bathroom is cute too!

By far one of the best places to eat in Astoria. Always consistent, fast and delicious. Great quesadillas and salads. A must when downtown Astoria.
