The food was good, though I felt the menu limited. The staff was friendly and the decor attractuve. There is sidewalk seating. It is in a very convenient location to hotels and businesses. I enjoyed it so much I went back a second time.

This is the restaurant associated with the Sofia Hotel. 10% discount on a single meal with valet parking. Decent selection of local beer & wine, as well as cocktails. Breakfast daily, is ample & reasonably priced. Happy hour on the patio is delightful.

BAD: I gave it a 2-star despite finding an insect in my salad. Lack of attention to details and carelessness can destroy any restaurant. Lunch was pricey and in small portions. Parking was across the street for $16/hour. I don't know if this is normal...More
