    I would definitely eat here again! My experience was stellar! I had the halibut and I couldn't have been more pleased! We are from Southern California and this was one of the highlights of our visit! For dessert we had the creme brûlée and all I can say is Yum Yum!

    Fantastic food! This charming restaurant is not a cafe style that you would normally think of. It's soft logging and high end appeal with reasonable prices. They had a full page gluten free menu, a knowledgable serving staff, and greats chefs that knows what they're doing in the kitchen. My husband and I ordered a gf app (grilled calamari -$10) and 2 gf hanger steak & cod entrees ($23 each). All of the food was delicious and I didn't get sick! Will definitely go again.

    Big enough menu. I got cod with a mushroom sauce on top of mashed potato with ginger & spring onion. Although slightly pricy, I enjoyed it. Waitress was knowledgeable and overall I felt comfortable there.

    Wow, this place is terrific! Excellent gourmet dishes. Go here to have things you would never make at home. Extensive Gluten Free menu. So you get to spend more time with your dinner companion. Live music is a nice bonus.

    They had a pretty good sized gluten free menu (available online) , around a dozen items between salads, appetizers, entrees and sides. I had hot and sour soup, hoisin glazed pork belly, and pork loin, and they were all tasty. There were also chicken, steak, and fish dishes, and it was nice to feel like there was an actual choice. The place is one small, loud, dark room (it was mostly empty, but still loud) but was comfortable during a slower time (pre-theater).
