This is a good spot because of the varied menu. The salads that allow you to add a protein are a good choice. Beer and wine only though. Good service. Go early because it gets crowded.

Probably the second best restaurant in town. We ordered more of the sandwich menu. Probably should have tried some of their salads. I had a New Mexico version of a Cuban sandwich and it was good. Large portion. Wife had the Tuscan chicken and liked...More

What caught my eye was the outdoor section of the restaurant. It looked beautiful compared to the other diners in the area. Went in, ordered calamari then a burger which I have to say was the best tasting burger I've had in a while. Afterwards...More

My wife and I visited this restaurant based on the reviews that seemed so glowing. It was a mistake. I would guess that the positive reviews are from either: a) people with very little dining experience in large cities; or b) people who work for...More

Horrible. I called for an order to go. Was a girl named Rose who said she could hardly hear me, probably because it was so loud where they have their phone. Long story short, I show up 30 minutes later and she didnt even place...More

We went here because of the good reviews. To begin with the positive, the building itself is really interesting, and the ambiance was good for the most part. We ended up sitting outside, which was kept cool by misters. We read that the food was...More

We ate here two nights in a row because the food was REALLY good. The prices are a bargain too. The service was a little lacking because the place was understaffed. We did not get to try many places in this town but the food...More

This is a very nice local restaurant in Carlsbad that offers a variety of scrumptious choices. We had tortilla soup and Tuscany chicken in a delicious wine sauce. The service could have been better. The prices were reasonable.

So sorry we missed this. I saw it a while ago, but it was a few days after Christmas anyway. But, in case you are still curious, we were not open.

We do serve wine based alcohol cocktails. Though they are a bit lower in alcohol content, many people feel they can't tell the difference.

I am sorry, but shrimp are very costly and so most people do not opt to add it to salads. We think $7 for 4 descent-sized grilled shrimp is a pretty good deal. Again, these are not typical "salad" shrimp (the baby tiny... More
