We have made this our go to place for a great casual meal. We like trying new venues, but it is good to know this restaurant is there. We dined on a very busy Saturday night. Service was slightly slow, but we expect that when a place is packed . The wait staff provided realistic times for drinks and food. They provided the appetizers quickly to minimize any food delays. We tried the wine flights, and several beers. All great choices and well priced. The Tuna tartar is a constant for us, and it was perfect as always. All the entrees: seafood, beef and lamb, were well presented and flavored. You can pay more, for less quality. This is a very good quality casual restaurant. This is one of the only two restaurants we will visit regularly. We have not been disappointed.

This place is great to pop in for a quick bite and a drink. The tapas are quite tasty and unique. We had the tacos and kefta slider. The beef taco was bland but the lamb taco and slider were very good. The atmosphere was less than desired with a crowded bar in the center of the room. The bartender was very friendly and gave great service.

Food is average to good, though plate presentation is a mess. Duck with cabbage was nice, but looks like a pile of slop. Pork was not thrilling. Pear salad was selling nothing; blah and pricey for its size.The interior needs redecorating and the ambiance suffers mightily. Sitting in the back near the ugly wire mesh kitchen window is depressing (block that off for Chrissakes) even with those stained glass art pieces trying their best to hide it. Lighting is awful, awful, walls need paint, and close off that broadway of a corridor to the kitchen. It is not a professional presentation from food to walls. Eclectic is one thing, junky and tired is another. Any other place in town can do better - especially newcomer Fire and Wine - that's why it is so busy. Service was average.

We have visited here a few times. We enjoy sitting at the bar, enjoying the wine and appetizer or tapas menu. Service is friendly, attentive, and relaxed. This is a restaurant too so you can have a full dinner at bar or at tables. Wine by glass or bottle is enjoyable. Beer and drinks also available. Food is good, soup is awesome. Looking for a quiet dinner with good atmosphere without a long wait this is your spot.
