Great restaurant! The interior is has a very interesting style. The seared duck breast was very tasty, and they were able to accommodate my gluten allergy! Highly recommend checking this place out.

Here are some reviews from our users.

"This place is awesome. Our Waitress Diana was a gem and made the experience a great one. Drinks were fantastic and the food was even better. Sat outside and our table was always taken care of and never just an afterthought. We had almost everyone working at our table at some point dropping off food or making sure we had what we needed. New favorite spot, highly recommend."

"Oh, how we wanted to love this place! The art on the walls and the deep, rich, dark moodiness of the interior amuse and enchant almost as much as the possibilities outlined in the rustic type sheet menu. Sadly, this is where things turn. Fussing with dried florals in a tiny vase and arranging napkin-rolled tableware takes minutes and minutes, then your table is ready. Menus are dropped onto wooden tables, the employees walking away quickly to return with water you'll pour yourself, and your wine you'll pour yourself after that first sip. The menu is confusing, with no apparent separation between any courses listed on the single paper page. Ask questions and you'll receive answers, express allergic concerns and you'll be redirected rather than accommodated, even as the menu prompts you to mention any allergies. The foods are presented mostly pretty well, and in the case especially of the charcuterie board, they are identified so you'll know what you're looking at or tasting. For dinner this visit we tried the bison ribeye with peppercorns. It was all right, flavorful, but as the employee assisting us warned, it certainly did have a fair amount of fat, but even more of gristle. We all ended up embarrassingly needing to expel said inedible material as discretely as possible. The wine choices were good, cocktail list interesting. The two listed desserts seemed like a good idea, and we tried both, but found them mysteriously shrouded beneath an irregular mound of whipped cream and or nuts or oats or something. And surprisingly, absolutely positively no coffee of any kind was available. This we all found shocking, but they did have port, so that was our condolence beverage. Ah well. What had we expected that we didn't get? Why not four or five stars? Because frankly, while the decor was five star, everything else was lesser than. From our arrival and throughout the meal we felt like we were annoying the staff by being customers. A previous visit had already gotten us chafed when we'd asked for salt, which is not on the tables, so we knew to behave ourselves and not be demanding, so what was it? An off night? An attitude to go with the carnivorous nature of the place, with free snarls? Perhaps. Again, what was it? Feeling unwelcome probably went a long way toward the rating. Having a confusing menu. Presenting customers with a fine dining experience and not especially providing one. Missing an opportunity to offer simple, fresh, uncomplicated desserts. Not having coffee. Possibly most of all, that fussing with the placement of table items, it was energy that should have been spent on smiling at patrons, pouring their beverages, taking time to explain the menu since its listings were so ambiguous. Those things. Would we return? Absolutely. We know any place can have some stories going on in the background that will affect diner experiences. We understand. With that understanding, we look forward with hope on our next visit."

"Good food n drinks with a quirky ambience. We loved everything we tried here on the th of December as we had just landed in San Diego that evening and wanted to eat out. However, we did found the place a bit expensive for our liking. Maybe they had a special menu for that week but if you are comfortable spending $ to $ for a main and $ to $ for a drink, then u'll love this place."

"Great restaurant! The interior is has a very interesting style. The seared duck breast was very tasty, and they were able to accommodate my gluten allergy! Highly recommend checking this place out."

"This is now my go-to place!!! Amazing menu, very unique game. Get the duck breast!!! Better than anywhere in France. Happy hour menu great. True mixology bartenders, infusions mixed fresh daily. Truffle fries and tacos for happy hour! Prices great for such exquisite cuisine. Chef is VERY present. Not stuffy, very inviting atmosphere Beautiful ambience, eclectic art decor. Open until every day?! What's not to love! Excellent cigar/smoke shop next door."
