Had lunch here. Marvelous salads- very fresh and tasty ingredients - portions large enough for two to share. Service was good as were the prices. Pleasant place to sit and converse. Would recommend and gladly return.

Our wait was only minutes before we were seated. We all ordered cocktails before our meals. We started out with the combo Poke. It was excellent. Our orders did not take that long to arrive. When they did, all our dishes were cooked to perfection....More
