Our waiter Dex was awesome. He was prompt, friendly, informative, and quite the San Chez marketer- telling us about breakfast etc. we chose an appetizer (potato croquettes), octopus and peppered beef entree. We enjoyed it all and would definitely come back.

Make sure you allow time for relaxed dining and to try 4-5 of the selections. The flavor, preparaton, ambiance and service were exceptional for the GR area.

Go here for lunch that is very reasonably priced and delicious or a spectacular dinner and drinks. Service is always great. I recommend sitting at the food bar if possible.
