If you don't have to wait too long - do it. It's a busy atmosphere, especially on game days (Sportsbar !!!). The food is absolutely awesome: fresh and delicious. As a pescetarian (which I call myself) this is sort of wonderland, though prices are high...More

Went for dinner. Awesome service and great drinks! We had the Hibiscus margarita and the Bloody Mary... both outstanding. The poke was also very nice, a California twist on a Hawaii standard. We also had the Halibut, cooked perfectly. Little noisy, but great place for...More

It was crowded, but we were seated quickly-the tables are very close together and the meal was very good, especially for the price. Would definitely go again when in the area.

We rode our bikes from Santa Monica and stopped here to dine. The salmon bites, chipotle shrimp quesadilla and the ahi tuna poke are strongly recommended. Wash that down with a great glass of Sancerre. The waitress was outstanding (Liane).

Understand this was the surf punk bar of choice back in the day and they've recently remodeled (again) but haven't been back to see. A few months back did go for second time; ambience (high energy, SoCal casual) was selling point for me. Both my...More
