Ate lunch here with a friend a few days ago! Always a great crowd at lunch! Get here early so they don't run out of the crab cakes. They are phenomenal! Service is always good. Not inexpensive.

Excellent food and selection of wines. Parking shared but seems to always be available. The prices are on the high-side but so is the quality. Service is spectacular as teams of people provide you with a great deal of attention. Very "California" beah look without...More

Locals hang out with a very busy weekend crowd. No corkage fee for 1st bottle of wine (if not sold on the menu, $15 if so). We love the smoked salmon appetizer, it’s my favorite!!! The Louisiana Shrimp is also super yummy!!! No happy hour...More

Good ambiance particularly outside patio area. The food was decent but for the price it was not too good. I had their soup and salmon. Both were bit disappointing.

We love dining here. The food is always consistent. High quality food and decor top notch. Down side is you have to get here early as they do not take reservations which is why we don’t eat here more often!
