This place is amazing! The food, music, service and decor are awesome. We took the SMART train from Petaluma. It is one block from the station. We cannot wait to come back. Bring your patience because there's always a line out the door!

Cute and cozy, but nothing to write home about. Plantains greasy and not to good. My husband and I were made to move from where we were seated to another table for another party. Not asked but Made to move. Really? Who does that?
