Inconsistency in the design of the menu and in execution, but some good moments in between... This really sums it up. Some dishes on the menu look like they came from the rustic Italian joint and some from a very fancy french place so unfocused...More

Stay away from this place. Terrible food and small portions. Best to go some place else for better cuisine. It is a supermarket of poor pretentious food.

The food was good but the prices are very high. I given the price I expected great service. I ordered a bottle of wine, cheese plate and some of the cured meats.... Nothing that required any cooking... I waited at least 30 min for everything...More

We dined here on Thanksgiving, not realizing there was a special menu. I had already planned my meal, having spent time researching Viognier specialties so it was a bit disappointing having to settle for anything else - though all the food was delicious. Getting to...More

Loved the variety of food and gin liquor collection. The duck board plate with duck bacon, confit & pate was outstanding. The tempura squash dish was very good. The server was friendly and knowledgeable.

I was travelling to the South San Francisco area -- this restaurant was recommended by a friend. Great EXCLUSIVE and ROMANTIC dinner spot. Impressive wine list. Luckily I ate with a colleague who brought a bottle of 2004 Bordeaux from his cellar to share. Their...More

Very weird combination of good food, good wine (red too cold), clinical interior and strange location inside a super market. This restaurant certainly delivers good food from an extensive menu; the wine list is impressive, but they ran out of the red selected before the...More

My first time to go for a business dinner event. it's a bit difficult to find as it's located on the 2nd floor of a grocery shop. However, it has a extensive list of wines to match your food. Tried Zuckerman’s Melon Salad. Very artistically...More
