What keeps this place going is the wait staff. The menu is somewhat limited for my tastes, but the happy hour and friendly wait staff keeps the doors open. Live music some nights, and deals on glasses of wine and beer. Nice atmosphere.

Went here yesterday evening. Hey where’s the heat. Too early for music so the atmosphere is pretty sterile plus the chill in the air. The wine list here is really sad. Very few choices by the glass or for that matter the bottle. Seems to...More

I had avoided this restaurant in previous visits to Solana Beach because I had heard it was a gathering place for twenty-somethings which I am certainly not. I was wrong. While I'm sure the live music attracts the younger Friday night crowd, you don't need...More

I have been here several times. Their pasta dishes are very good, especially the one with lemon butter caper sauce (so good, I got extra sauce and took it home). You can "build your own" pasta, or pizza. Fun. But, I think the food is...More

Happy hour ends at 6 and the music doesn't start till 8:30. I like their menu but I liked it more before they had the build your own pasta. I think the chef should be able to make a menu. Servers are a little rushed...More

We just discovered this restaurant and would totally go back again. We were there for lunch and ordered a bunch of appetizers and a dessert to die for - service was outstanding and we were told that they also have music on some nights. We...More

The food was good but we had to wait over an hour for our food. We did not feel the value was worth the price.
