Maybe one of the better options in Yakima, but objectively the food is average. Preparation was fine, but the composition and balance of the offerings does not qualify this restaurant to be more than ordinary. Service was sufficiently attentive. Noise level was high when the...More

New prices, no more free bread with your meal, cool food, higher prices.. The loss of the prior chef has left a great place suffering.

Recently had lunch and was impressed with menu variety. Nice selection of salads and pasta as well as other options including sandwiches. Really enjoyed their pork carnita tacos and chop salad.

Thank you for your comments. Since spring has arrived I invite you to try our new lunch menu, and the chop salad is still my favorite Thank you

The food is outstanding, and the service is too! We've had several of the entrees over the last year and every one was superb. It can be loud at peak times, but it's worth it! My favorite in Yakima

Wonderful spot for date night. Food is great and service is very accommodating. Plenty of fresh local ingredients. Kids are welcome as well. But it's a little pricey so I usually reserve this for date night.

Is this FRESH food ? Or perhaps frozen, pre-cooked, otherwise, not fresh .

I cannot speak with certainty whether it was all "farm to table" but everything seemed fresh and made with high quality ingredients. The wine and beer showcased local producers. It all presented very well and tasted even... More
