Our party was twelve people, and as we made our reservation, we were offered a fixed price 4 course meal consisting of their most popular selections, to be served family style. We accepted their offer, and our meal consisted of 3 starters, 3 appetizers, 2 entrees with 3 sides, and 2 desserts. An amazing meal, enhanced with many creative combinations of seasonings and sauces, and well presented and described our servers. The highest compliments to chef Joe Johnson and his staff.

This place was the best place we could find around the area we were staying in (marina del ray) so we weren't sure about it till we got there. When we arrived we were impressed with the look of the place and the lively atmosphere.
Food here was excellent. We had the sea bass, the New York strip, chicken wings, calamari, baked potato, spinach and desserts. Everything was amazing, the sea bass had a gorgeous flavour and the steak was cooked perfectly. We nearly didn't order The baked potato because we thought it was too much food between 4 people but when it arrived we were so happy we'd ordered it. It was delicious!
Cocktails were yummy too, especially their version of a dark and stormy.
Aside from food, the waitress who served us was very knowledgable, charismatic and funny. The food and the atmosphere really made this place. A must to visit in the area.

Came here with my husband. So many delicious choices here. We had the spare ribs which were so unbelievingly good. And the chicken wings which my husband loved. We had the NY strip and shared it. So so good. Not many options for vegetarians here, but if you love meat you'll be happy:

Put it this way. Of four days three nights we stayed in this area, my wife and I went to this restaurant 2 times. We sat on the bar the 2 times we went, it is delicious, the drinks were very good too, we had the charcoal margarita.
Go to this restaurant, but make a reservation if you can, we were lucky to go there the 2 times without a reservation and find spots on the bar. Either way we personally love to sit at the bar.
The service was very good too.

I was here for dinner with a group of colleagues. The food was great as was the ambience. A very casual setting along with a unique serving style where the food brought to the table were all dishes to be shared. We tried lamb, chicken, beef - they were all excellent. Worth stopping by.
