"This is the perfect place to drop into when shoppin on El Paseo. It has a great outdoor location in a little Cul de Sac with many outdoor tables. And dog friendly! The food is very good and the help is gracious and attentive. We've eaten there many times and have yet to have a bad meal."



“Great place! Right on El Paseo. Enjoyed a cobb salad with my friends. Wonderful staff. Looking forward to a happy hour menu! Dog friendly too!”



"We stumbled upon this restaurant while shopping on El Paseo. It's a great spot. Loved the outdoor courtyard setting. The food was great and the service was wonderful. I'm not sure if it was the manager or the owner who came by our table to say hello and to thank us for coming in, but nonetheless, you can certainly tell it's the type of restaurant where they really care about their customers. Can't wait to go back!"
