The food is great! I totally recommend the tartar, catch of the day and their goat cheese. Creme brulee - smoothest I have had in ages! Loved it!

Everything was very competent and efficient but I felt a bit like a number. Food was slightly above average; not a lot of effort or flavor. Checked the box. Cool little jazz bar in basement.

Accidentally found this place for breakfast brunch! Love it! Very tasty food, unlimited mimosas, and good price! I believe if you stay at their hotel-breakfast is included but I am not sure. Anyway! It was super nice, and atmosphere is great! Thanks!!! Highly recommended!!!!

First-a thank you to the staff member who took pity upon us and let us indoors (warmth) after arriving 11, 1/2 hour before our reservation. And warm in every way-the staff, the ambiance, our fellow diners and even the cacti were flourishing. Food was beyond...More

Wonderful food and extensive bar. On a busy Friday night they managed to squeeze us in at the bar where we got a great explanation of the menu. We started a G&T from an inventive selection, local drafts, and deviled egg bar snacks. And moved...More

No reservations possible after 6 p.m. That said, we turned up around 8 on a Saturday evening and had to wait just 45 minutes, which passed easily drinking cocktails in the downstairs bar. They came and called us when our... More
