I love the summer in WBL when we can sit outside and enjoy the patio at Ingredients. My husband enjoys their bacon cheese burger but there is a nice variety of items on menu. Staff has always been very welcoming and accommodating .

Ordered BLT. Bacon WAY over-microwaved. (Yes--microwaved.) Shame b/c lazy bacon prep overshadowed the freshness of the garden tomato. What cook doesn't know how to fry bacon in a pan? Empanadas were dry, bland and chili sauce lacked body (tomato/red pepper puree with chili powder a...More

Have eaten here a few times. Like the food (especially the mussels!). Occasionally the music/band seems too loud. I like to talk to my companion. I wish restaurants wouldn't use loud speakers...how about acoustic?

Tempura Talapia was done perfect. The arugula salad, however, was nice but just a bit too bitter with the nice fried kale and even with nice addition of the added crunch of the apple too bitter. Sweet potato puree was excellent with the fish. Needed...More

Had dinner there last night. Great apps. Chicken satay and Korean beef tacos. Very good. Very busy, a little noisy. Bar area could be a little bigger. Would return.

First, the moment you walk in you know it's going to be an interesting experience. The atmosphere is inviting and interesting. The service was wonderful and, while we like to take our time, we never felt like we needed to rush our meal. The food...More

Stopped in for a birthday dinner and the food was OK, kind of bland and boring. The service was average to slow. My beer was cold, so that always helps.

I am a sucker for their lamb sliders. Those, a bowl of soup, and a glass of cabernet just set me right. My favorite local spot.
