Husband took me for our anniversary. Meant to do a full dinner but I'm a happy hour kinda girl so instead hung around for a few hours before my surprise gondola ride - yes husband rocks!!!! and tried a ton of different starters and a few sushi:-) Crispy calamari YUM (10$ happy hour) prosciutto &fig pizzette -good but heavy on the fig, light on the prosciutto (10$ happy hour) -I'm trying the BBQ chicken flatbread next time, sushi ca roll YUM 11$, spicy tuna roll- good 11$, three amigo roll SUPER YUM 16$ and my most favorite Crispy Rice w spicy Tuna $15. Happy hour is 2-6pm th 5$ beer, $7 wine and wells, $8 margaritas, $10 starters 1/2 off selected sushi all day Tuesdays. Monday's 2$ oysters, Wednesday 1/2 off bottles of wine. There's also strolling magicians that look cool on certain nights and live music that changes throughout each week (call or look at website for specifics). Beautiful restaurant in the classy old school balboa island type way (not weird hipster/millennium-sorry nothing personal but I like the clean classy comfortable old school Audrey Hepburn feel) overlooking alamitos bay- uber/lyft as parking here sucks (plus allows you to enjoy drinks stress free). I'm bringing my mom, grandma and daughter here -and all ages will feel comfortable and welcome for a champagneandcanvas.com class (review to come). I've been dreaming of that crispy rice w spicy Tuna roll. Drinks are good but stick w simple as we tried a few fancy/15$ ones that were house specialities - good but next time I'll stick to a rum and coke or glass of house wine via happy hour pricing. Really a nice place and if you go during happy hour, you won't break the bank. I'm really looking forward to going again!
