The food here is great but it was a little too loud for us! That won't keep us from coming back though, but I hear it's best to come a little later in the evening. Great drinks for sure too. Love the atmosphere.

The atmosphere here is relaxed and trendy. Great for special occasions. The only thing was the noise level, it's hard to hear your party. But fun to hang out.

We didn't have a full meal here, but the drink menu is very extensive and the drinks served were excellent. They also had a decent appetizer menu that was also very good.

This is a high end restaurant that serves both good food and a good menu of drinks. If you're looking for a nice sit down dinner then this is a good place to go. Everything is first class with great service.

This is an upscale place located close to Hillcrest and Balboa Park. They have a good happy hour and make some very good drinks. The menu is very interesting with lots of different things to try!!!
