Our go-to place in Marin. I think it's the best restaurant in the area. I'd put it up against anywhere I've been. Honestly. The menu might seem a bit daunting given the combinations they put together (to me it's exciting), but trust that this place...More

We have been going here for all special occasions since it's opening. Very good food. They menu is limited but has always been rewarding. Heidi's approach is to have unique and very fresh food.

This is one of my go-to places when I am entertaining friends. Food is good, albeit a bit expensive. Nice ambiance, professional service. A solid choice.

Pretty place and easy to have a conversation when it was half filled. Not sure if it was packed how it would be. Excellent hummus and very generous pita to go along with it. The vegetarian platter was curry like with a slab of tough...More
