“Eclectic dream restaurant”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

Like visiting someone's old house. Very friendly and laid-back staff, a random collection of used chairs and tables in the "dining room."
The menu and the wine list are written in black marker on sheets of cardboard cut from the sides of empty wine cases.
The food, prepared by Chef Paul, was fantastic. You can compose your own meal from the list of small plates (e.g., ribs braised with balsamic vinegar and mint...wow!).
The wine list was't lengthy but perfectly chosen to match the food. At first I thought the price of wine by the glass was rather high ($9 for a glass of French rose) until my waitperson came back with a carafe that probably held two glasses. Bonus!
And I had a nice chat with Chef Paul when he stopped by my table. He was happy to share his recipes and techniques.

“Love it! Love it! Love it!”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

This is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants. The ambiance is artsy and casual. The food is amazing. Chef Paul Luna and the lovely Cynthia are genuinely warm and welcoming, but not so much to be intrusive. Once you taste their amazing food you will know why they keep winning local restaurant awards. Take your favorite friends and family to enjoy a culinary delight and a night to remember. You won't regret it.
