Owner/manager did not wear a mask or respect social distancing guidelines when interacting with staff and customers in the front of house. However, staff was courteous and took necessary precautions.

The nicest experience! Erica was our hosteds jthis evening, and our experience went from very good to amazing. It’s a different experience when your host or hostess has the time to visit a bit, and our dinner was that much better for it. (Not to overlook Dustin’s excellent service) as well - just the most delicious dinner, perfect cocktails and lovely and attentive service. A nice respite after the past few months.

They have done a really good job reopening in a safe and yet enjoyable way. The menu was reduced to a good size combination of options. Many of their favorites were on the menu, so we got what we wanted. The staff was extremely friendly, and very accommodating for any of the health related concerns people might have. Superb food, service, and atmosphere. What else could you ask for?

Saturday morning brunch.
Place was virtually empty due to a combo of rain and folks staying home (you know why).
Service was great. Staff was friendly. Food was good.
I hope they get through these unusual times.

This is a hidden gem in the area. Lived in this area for years and passed by it thinking it was another generic strip mall bar. Great food. Appetizers and desserts are top notch, so don’t skip over those. Innovative & creative mixed drink menu.

We had stopped going after the previous owner ran it into the ground. When they reopened we tried and they were still adjusting. But now the food and service are better than before. Adding it back into one of my regular places

Went here for a date night with my wife. We had a great time. Local people introduced themselves and the staff was very friendly. The food was fantastic - though one dish portion size was extra and the other was to be desired. My wife was able to sit on one side of the table and could see thru the very large windows overlooking the main street - whereas I was looking toward her which kept me from being distracted and focused on what matters. Overall, the night was a great success.

Impossibly loud in the bar section, would have ordered more courses but no one in our party of four could hear across the table. Main dining room is better but restaurant couldn’t accommodate the request. Better choices available, sadly.

This has become our go-to place for a casual meal. Lots of appetizer, salad, sandwich and entree options. Chicken carbonara is especially tasty and the burger is pretty awesome. Very friendly and efficient service. Ample parking. Thanks to our server Justin for a very nice evening.

We tried here for the first time because of Dine LA. Probably passed it a hundred times over the years and never realized that a nice dining establishment & innovative cocktail bar was in a strip mall across the street from Trader Joe’s. Very nice menu. Great quirky innovation on most of their dishes and cocktails. Excellent service, too. A new find for us in our area! Will return so we can try other menu items.

The bar is a lovely space and the drinks are good. It's really noisy though, so not a good place if you're looking for quiet conversation. The main restaurant is not as fancy as the bar, but it's nice and quiet in there. The food and service are pretty good.

First time. This is an accurate review and we will return at least one more time to try other entrees with hopes of higher quality food. I had the fried chicken sandwich. Barely any meat on the breast. Husband had chicken Marsala. Just OK.

Service was friendly, attentive and excellent.

Restaurant was very busy. Had a reservation but was +10 minutes late being seated Service was slow but satisfactory?? given the circumstances. My entree (chicken pacatta) was barely warm - my spouse’s order was satisfactory. Had the chicken picatta before and it was great,,. Yea, it was maybe a bad night to dine there but then that’s never reflected when they present the check.

Excellent burger and fries. Cajun rib eye steak, while not prime, was tasty. Fried brussel sprouts was a fun starter. Service by Jesse was perfect. A nice place in LCF to relax, unwind and have good comfort food.
