Food was pricey, but tasty. Legitimate price for hipster California. If you like Cali, you will love this place. I will never go back. I am local and have never been treated so poorly by Californians. I drove past for years, but agreed to try...More

Cool place for happy hour with decent food and drink menu and TV for sports watching. Regular menu is also good. Been here for dinner, lunch, and happy hour few times. Great place to be a returning patron!

Great vibe in this restaurant. The wait staff is excellent. They are cheerful and knowledgeable and NOT obsequious. The menu is really diverse, fresh and delicious. We went for dinner and were delighted. Definitely going back.

My wife and I each had a superb meal here, she is vegetarian and I had a pork chop. Though each were superb in their own right, what was unbeatable was their apple/berry 'tart' with vanilla ice cream. As the picture shows, it is presented...More

I have been to this location on numerous occasions for dinner and have always enjoyed it. Upon arriving, we were told that dinner starts at 5pm and we are to sit outside on the patio so they can sweep and mop. When the food arrived,...More

The food was fine. Kind of gourmet grill type thing. But not amazing. Decent meal but the low rating is due to the exaggerated pricing. I'd expect this type of place in San Diego or Cancun. While in Kailua I'd prefer healthy, local options with...More
