This place is nice and relaxing, it has a great atmosphere, and great salads and desserts. My husband and I love coming here for their desserts, they are a little on the expensive side but they are well worth it for a special occasion. They have a great variety on their counter ready to pick out or you can also... More

Great lunch! And save room for the amazing deserts. We split a key lime tart that was so flavorful, with perfect meringue.

This place is an OC institution with a wide variety of menu options. I usually go for the mezza appetizer, but this time, I tried their tabulleh slad with chicken - had enough for another meal to take home. The service was great. I recommend eating outside - inside is too noisy.

This is a lovely little bistro with an adjacent bakery and more formal restaurant. But the bistro side is my favorite part. Everything tastes so fresh. And they will absolutely accommodate your special requests. Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan ... no problem. Their baba ganoush is EXCELLENT, as is the hummus. Try the chicken pallaird salad, with grilled breast (request not battered).... More

The menu never changes, the service is slow and the kitchen seems to be confused. The dishes we used to order are no longer on the menu and it seems the portions are smaller.

Went for family function in private room. Service was exceptional. As we walked in, they were ready to take our drink orders. Starters of chicken skewers, meatballs and potatoes were excellent. Lamb chops were excellent. Chocolate bomb desert was enjoyed by the children. They have a bakery side and a dinner side. Well worth another visit.

Nice restaurant - has a patio feel to it but they have heaters when it is cold. it was fairly full, but not noisy which made it comfortable to eat and talk. The menu has a good variety and we enjoyed our entrees. The best part for me was the dessert. Creme Brulee is my fav and theirs is impeccable.... More

This place is a good option for a happy hour time. There are good prices for wines and the food is good, although I think we have better options in town, I would come back. Ask to hostess to stay in the patio.
