Pricey, but all dishes can be shared. Delicious, unusual organic food. Tight quarters with little room on the table to put all the dishes.

Love their menu and their salads are the best. I like to eat on the back deck. It is a little quieter.

We were 7 adults and shared many plates and they all came out evenly timed and nothing disappointed us! Service was fast, friendly, and helpful. Would highly recommend this restaurant, especially if you can set on the back patio.

This place is cozy and perfect for a day of outdoor exercise. Our avacado toast was fresh, filling, healthy and light enough to make the climb back up the mountain. Love this place every time.
