It's a large restaurant with a generous patio as well. It sports a stage for their entertaining events, but since we were there for lunch we didn't experience any live music. It has a varied menu but not as varied as the wait staff. At first I was wondering who these people were who were wandering about and sometimes going... More

The place had a great atmosphere and fantastic staff. The food was good but didn't blow any of us away. We had everything from salads to meatloaf to sandwiches to fried chicken. We were all expecting a better meal given what we had heard about the restaurant.

Went here for lunch on a very hot day, so was happy to stay inside. Staff kept coming by the table and leaving at the start so didn't know who our actual waiter/waitress was for awhile. The Antipasto menu seems to be a big thing, they dropped off a check list we could fill out, but even though we said... More

This is largely a cool ASU student hangout, but we saw several elderly people (over 40's) enjoying meals. Set in a renovated warehouse, it sports several large interior areas for formal meals (weddings etc.) as well as casual eating and an area for drinking and snacks complete with ping pong tables, hoops, table tennis etc - presumably to simulate how...

My salad (kale) was super delish. Added grilled salmon to it and the size of the piece of salmon was really amazing. The food was good - the menu is a bit limited. I wasn't overwhelmed but thought it was solid.

We ate dinner here with a group on a business trip. We had reservations but they were running behind so we opted to sit on the patio. It was great that we could all sit together. The interior of the place is very cool and I loved the different style of chairs they used at the tables. The menu was... More

We came for dinner and ended up sitting at the bar outside (it was super busy), which was kind of perfect! I had the friend chicken and my husband the prime rib dip, both of which were delicious! There were so many cocktails that it was hard to choose, but we both liked the ones we tried and wish we... More

As soon as you walk in you are in awe of the tiled wall covering the kitchen area. Then the massive chandeliers, eclectic seating, chalk board menus, large open concept bar and friendly staff. The menu has everything from marinated olives , wings, burgers and kale salads. I was craving a salad and decided to have the kale salad that... More
