Rustic Goodness

After reading the reviews, I didn’t know if I should drop by, but my friend insisted since her mother recommended the place. We arrived and were told that there would be an hour-long wait. Instead, we opted to sit at the bar.

Our server was FANTASTIC! We read through the wine list and asked her if it was possible to get a small taste of the wines before getting a glass. She recommended a syrah, a merlot, and a champagne (for me). The glasses were about 2 oz., and we were quite happy with the samples, so we got full glasses. It really was awesome of our server to give us little tastes before having us commit!

We ordered three small plates: pizzeta, mussels, and blood orange salad. A cheese plate. And dessert: persimmon ice cream, cookie plate, and baked apple and pear crumble. The pizzeta was delicious – artichoke hearts! Mussels were great, and the piping hot broth was great with bread. I didn’t really care for the cheese plate. And the dessert was fantabulous.

Our servers were very prompt with our orders, friendly, and spot on with suggestions. Although it was a bit loud to hear our own conversations, the relaxed vibe was great for a night out. For all of that, our tab came up to be $160 for three. Not too bad.

A bit on the fancy side, but well worth

A bit on the fancy side, but well worth the dinero! Friendly service, thoughtful wine list and a well designed menu perfect for pairing. Sit outside for prime people watching.

The food is fresh the wine is overpriced the staff is neither interested, helpful or professional. Who likes to feel insulted by the staff "specifically the hostess" with the competition out there "NOT ME" I will never bring business…

Tips
  • Three booths against the far wall offer the most privacy and sound cushioning (unless one of them is hosting a particularly loud group), while the airy window tables take in the night view of Wilshire outside.
  • Street parking is highly competitive--save time and use the affordable valet.
  • Besides an ever-increasing list of small-production wines offered by bottle and glass, there's also a list of specialty sparkling cocktails made with artisan ingredients like lemongrass and ginger, organic cucumber juice, and muddled mint.
