"Stopped by for lunch without a reservation with a large party. The staff was very accommodating in setting up a table for us despite the restaurant being quite busy. Very extensive menu with items ranging from soup and salad to filling entrees. We had quite a diverse order with items such as green chile cheese burgers with Waygu beef, pork tacos, and club-type sandwiches. I had the Salmon served over a buerre blanc risotto that was perfectly cooked medium rare. The meals were delicious and we were too full to order dessert. Best cup of coffee I'd had in a long time. We had originally wanted to eat on the patio but the weather was too blustery. I'll return and sit on the patio come summer!"
