The food and service is always excellent, plus the jazz is an added plus! We love the bread plate appetizer.
Consistent, caring, genuine service and a vibrant atmosphere with live music. Visited dozens of times and can't find a single flaw in their concept.
This review is for the west side location of Santa Monica and Barrington. This place is always very busy and a reservation is a must if you want a table. I was there on a Wed. with no reservation and they had a 1 hour wait. We opted to eat in the bar area, after waiting to get two seats... More
