We're locals and this has become a favorite place to eat. Prices are reasonable, food is consistently good no matter what you choose. Good drink assortment. Wait staff is on top of things, but aren't a pest. Very busy place even in the off season but even on busy nights the kitchen keeps things moving.

My wife and I have commented that we often find the most imaginative and tastiest dishes on the appetizer menu. The owner chefs must be of a similar mind. Most of the dishes are appetizer inspired and very imaginative (e.g., Cuban shrimp - made with a saffron, garlic cream sauce). They have a few large dish items, but the bulk... More

Delicious! Small plates are actually kind of big so 4 for a couple might even be too much. Soup and 3 plates would be perfect! The filet bites were so tender!

I'm sure many people walk by this place without knowing what they're missing...the food is genuinely at a completely different level to what I was expecting. It's a 'small plates' restaurant and we had a good variety including blackened chicken, ribs, filet bites and pear & blue cheese salad for my wife and I to share. A colleague of mine... More

Great meal for a good price! Try the Filet steak bites and the Verde chili with a cold beer on tap. Yum.

What can I say, food was above and beyond. The verde award winning chili is a must have, the spicy shrimp is a definite and get two plates of it!! Sushi is good, and the scallops were alright. The shrimp and the chili were the stars of the night. Perfectly cooked, the drinks were very delightful and well balanced.

Our party of 4 ordered 2 small plates each to share. Every one was delicious! The only problem was that the hot dishes were not hot. For example, the sirloin bites were cold... but we still enjoyed them because they were so tender and tasty. Other than that, the service was very friendly. Other favorite dishes... 3-cheese plate, mac &... More

We have been here on a few occasions. Usually celebrating a birthday with a group of adults. The food is delicious. Much different than you can get anywhere else in the area. Haven't had a bad plate yet. They have a wide selection of food and drinks. I love the North beach martini. They don't skimp on the alcohol either.... More
