Exceptional - 5 out of 5

Tina G, Concord, CA Sun, 17 June 2018

I made a reservation online for my mother and me prior to a concert on a very busy Saturday, prime meal time. The staff graciously directed us to the bar for just 5 minutes while they prepared a window table for us, which was totally unexpected and kind, as my Mom just loved the upstairs view. The restaurant has an elevator, so senior guests or those who need just a little help are fully accommodated. The menu was extensive and diverse, so that one could choose small dishes, regular dishes or comprise a family style dinner perfectly if they wanted. We chose several of the small dishes and dinner salads, which were outstanding - fresh ingredients, with perfect seasoning and beautiful plating. The bread and balsamic dip was a lovely addition as well. Despite the busy time and number of guests, we were not rushed, were served quickly and graciously by our server and the restaurant itself was clean and well kept. Would definitely go back and I am adding this to my "take guests who come visit me" list for sure. Thank you!

Liked: The menu choices were diverse in both size, composition and diet and the service was efficient and gracious.
Disliked: No street parking close by; there is a lot across the street, but no validation so cost is $6.

l What I really like is that there are 4 distinct eating environments here (all sharing the same menu). Outdoor on the street (great if you have your dog with you) Indoor downstairs: kind of a classic...

l Since we went in at lunchtime I expected a wait, but that was not the case. The owner greeted us warmly and asked that we seat ourselves at an open table of our choice. The young lady who waited on...
