"Mussels are a must-have here...the best! Professional service...good listerners, well-informed, not obtrusive. Enjoyed the scallops very much. We'll have to go back for their famous onion soup."

"This used to be my go-to place in the neighborhood for reliably good food at a very reasonable price. Less than a year ago I went and the food wasn't great, neither were the service or ambiance (the spotty temperature in the back is not ideal). And the price seemed a bit higher. I went again and had the same experience. And finally on my latest visit, the bartender was actively inattentive (seemed annoyed that he had to put down his phone, rolled his eyes when I dropped a $20 for two draft beers... that actually cost $23 for 2 beers!!!). We sat down once our party was assembled, but no one came to take a drink order for 20 minutes, and then it took 10 to return with the drinks! And it wasn't crowded at all! The food was fine but not spectacular, and the whole meal cost a lot more than it should have. I think I have given it a chance, but will sadly move on."

"The ambience was nice, the service was good and my soup and entree were good as well but the ice cream had a sour taste to it - not the greatest way to end a meal. Overall I did think the Prix fixe was a good value."

"Food was amazing. We went for Oakland Restaurant Week and had the prix fixed menu, adding a glass of wine. Only issue was that it was so dark we couldn't see what we were eating, and the music was a little loud. But I would not ding this place for that, everything was so incredibly good.
Will for sure be going back!

"The Restaurant Week special had two choices each of starter, main course, and desert.
I was not super enamored of the desert but the other two were quite imaginative.

"very average restaurant . I was expecting a bit better and everything was just ok. If it wasnt for the outside area I would really dislike this place."

"The menu looked rather interesting, but I felt that it was a little deceiving. I ordered what was listed as an entree, but the whole thing was about the size of my hand, depth included (not piled high). Note that this was a vegetarian entree, so we're not talking a small piece of meat, which would have been much more acceptable. The soup was exceptionally salty (but otherwise good), and given that it was a soup, this means that there was probably a phenomenal amount of salt in it.
The food comes out kind of helter-skelter, which they let us know after I had been waiting for about ten minutes to eat for other people to be served.
I kind of get the impression that they were perhaps having an off day and that this was not representative of their typical dining experience. I'd definitely be willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and try the place again, but if I got the same quality of food I wouldn't go back a third time."

"Pretty restaurant and Good food, albeit slightly overpriced. Seriously weird wine list - it's hard to find a glass of wine you recognize, much less actually like !"

"Went for restaurant week, delicious food. Service felt rushed, then absent-guessing due to restaurant week rushed. Would definitely go back. Desserts could be better. Had seared scallops, yum!"

"The food and service are fanatic here. I only wish I could have seen my friend who joined me for dinner, and to have seen the food. We held one of the candles over our scallops and beet risotto to see if the colors and presentation were as amazing as the flavors. I have a feeling it's a beautiful dish. Anche l'occhio voule la sua parte!"

"This place has always been a great place for special celebrations. The service is excellent and the food is good. If you want larger portion sizes, do not opt for the Prix Fix; there were only 3 scallops in my dinner. The wine list does not have any California or US wines. The waitress was very helpful in trying to tell us what was comparable in their European selection and replacing what we did not like with another selection. I would have preferred some California wines. Four of us shared the two desserts from the Prix Fix which were a nice finish."

"Just a couple of recommendations - although the restaurant is a great date spot, it was a bit too dim. Two tables next to us had to use their cell phone flashlight to look at the menu. And although our waiter was great, the servers just plopped our dishes on the side of the table, not in front of us. All in all, very enjoyable dinner with my fiance."
