Wow! It's been awhile since I saw a restaurant owner berate a waitress in front of customers. I feel badly for the waitress. Some guy wanted a drink and she said she would try to make it. The guy was really excited but before she...More

Hidden gem. Full bar along with Brazilian/ Mexican cuisine. Seafood enchilada and Brazilian crepe filled with ground beef and cheese was our dinner order. Came with black beans and rice. Very good! Mai Tai's are excellent as well.

I don't understand the bad reviews of this place. I've eaten here twice (once for dinner and once for happy hour), and both times I had good food and really nice drinks. The views out across the valley are lovely, and it's never been crowded....More
