Whether you sit outside, at the bar or at a proper table you're going to enjoy it. For Lunch, the set menu is the way to go. Really, everything is good. Dinner-time brings an array of cool cocktails and savory dishes with a fresh Mexican...More

What a great find while walking around Jack London Square!!! We had Polly, our bichon, with us. They were very welcoming to Polly on the outside patio facing the marina. We had 5 small plates between us. Describing the food would do it an injustice....More

We started with some cocktails and there was no other word for them other than bad. I'm not sure where the bartender learned to make drinks but hopefully he didn't pay for it. We had a couple appetizers that were good (ceviche and empanadas) but...More
