Went with our friends for a couples holiday celebration! So good! We loved the breaded cauliflower, quest frito and the halibut were amazing! We actually liked everything we tried. Nice, small setting- with an updated friendly appeal. Will definitely return.

Great dishes that I could not make myself! Food was very good and different from what I was used to. I took away a star because I went there hungry and ended up spending way more money than planned.

Be sure to order and share the plates. The cocktail and wine list is worthy of exploration. The black ink pasta dish was so good!
