Baby Kale Salad
roasted sweet & sour pumpkin + walnuts
fresh mozzarella + parmesan + ricotta + tomato sauce + organic spinach + natural ham (Gluten-free crust not available)
I can understand the lack of salt and pepper at the table but pepper mills have usually only been handled by wait staff anyway. Tiny packages of pepper are silly, larger packs can be had at McDonald's. Bring your own S&P!
Good food, excellent service. The seats were directly in the sun so you were squinting the whole time but other than that, everything was great
Great Food! This a nice place to have a big group.
Excellent service. Interesting menu, good cocktails and wine very tasty food. We dined outside and it was very pleasant.
Love their GF pizza! In fact, I have to have one once a week. Their dough is light and airy - just like a wheat dough, and then wood fired. So good!
Went around happy hour time: initially when we got there, we waited to be seated because no one was at the front. But, there were employees everywhere inside, so I’m pretty sure one of them noticed we were standing there! When we were seated, the only food items available were pizza, soup and salads. No appetizers. We were bummed, but ok. Overall, the food and drinks were good. The restaurant is really cute inside and the bathroom was clean. Our servers were friendly as well.
One note: check the hidden happy hour deal: order two drinks off the regular drink list and you get a free pizza. (They never said that when we ordered)
Waited long to get food
We were told that there were only two servers
She was very kind, just long wait sitting with two kids not very pleasant
The food was cold and old. Clearly had been sitting out for a loooong time. The Brussels sprouts were particularly offensive: cold, dry, as if they’d been out all day. Gross. The rest of the dishes were just okay. Fairly bland. I would not come back.
The quality of the food was We all had something different and were very happy all around! was attentive, but not pushy. Drinks were honest pours , wine selection was ample and fairly priced. Can wait to get back down for dinner in La Mesa!
Wonderful evening. The food was excellent and our server Valery did an exceptional job. This was our first time at the La Mesa location. We will definitely go back.
Very happy for indoor dining!!
Been here numerous times however not sure I’ll be back. The worst service ever!
Great food, great service, great ambiance 😊
I'm thinking this may have just been a really busy day and some of our food could've been a little better on another day when it wasn't during this weird time of opening back up and trying their best to comply with regulations. I'll probably try it again. The kids' food that we ordered for my kiddos was really good though.
We loved the place! It was charming, the service was excellent and the food (we all had salads) was well prepared and delicious!
Always love their food, service, & atmosphere.
We had some under seared tuna & over cooked chicken. Half the items we tried to order they were out of, they didn't clear the plates on the table, yet kept bringing out more items that couldn't fit anymore & out server was clearly frazzled & didn't seem to be happy to be there. Definitely not our best night out for dinner.
Great food, outdoor seating, located in cute area of La Mesa.
I’ve been disappointed the last two times. It’s just ok...service is marginal. I don’t think I’ll return. Downtown location seemed better in most ways.
Everything was quite good except they ran out of tres leches cake and took too long to inform us. They did, however, comp my wife’s cannoli dessert as a replacement. Overall we had a really good time. Flatbreads were good, Brussel sprouts excellent and the limoncello cake was fantastic.
We had a really nice time celebrating our team mates (party of 12) and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating.
This place has great potential. Sucks its the only decent place in La Mesa.
Server was not attentive, we were not served plates with our appetizers, even after asking the busser! We would have had more food and drinks, but our server did not come back to check on us. And it was not a busy day!
We had a great pre fixe meal for Easter
I live up the street from this restaurant and come about every two months. I have to say this location has gone down hill which is extremely sad. It was a neighborhood gem for so many years but that last several visits were very disappointing. The quality of the food has dramatically changed. During my last visit, we ordered the Tuna Tartare which arrived to the table grey in color (clearly not fresh), our steak was fatty and overcooked, our pasta was cold and undercooked, and our dessert looked like it fell off the plate only to be scooped back up and brought to the table. I'm not sure if the cooking staff has changed but there is a noticeable difference in the food and presentation. I use to appreciate their attention to quality locally sourced ingredients but I can't say they have held those standards. Unfortunately, we will not be coming back.
The waiter was very attentive. Food was amazing. Everything tasted delicious
- Had to wait although a OpenTable Reservation.
- Coffee was Luke warm
- COVID Surge resulted in packed restaurant ... frequent dropping of glassware.
- Due to an overly packed restaurant... the minimal amount of servers could not be intentional.
- Food Requests we’re not met.
Excellent experience, service and food. We will enjoy regularly!
A little slow on service but great atmosphere
Brunch was amazing and great service. I love their red sangria as well!
Overall we really enjoyed our meal, and this will be one of our go to restaurants. The food is very good. However, service could use some fine tuning in regards to checking back after meal is served and timeliness. We were done with our apps and the dishes remained on the table for a very long time. And we waited quite a while to order our entrees.
The other thing we need to point out is perhaps more attention needs to be focused on cleanliness and sanitation during these more challenging times. Thank you
We had a late reservation for a “large” party. Server was attentive and food was fresh.
Same server we’ve had two other times - great food, great service
They ignored our reservation completely. Sat people who came after us w/o reservations (same # in groups) and then told us (40 - minutes after reservation) that we could have a table outside w/o heat despite all other tables have heaters. We were appalled.
Drinks from the bar were great and food was delicious. Waitress was professional and friendly. Great job!
Great menu selection. Our Server was terrific and offered many suggestions. Wanted to try something new for dinner so went with the suggestions and recommendations of our server. We were completely satisfied with everything she recommended.
Will definitely be back, and would highly recommend to others looking for a nice dinner and dining experience.
Great food, great atmosphere, awesome service! All staff deserve a raise.
I’d love to say better things at this restaurant because I’ve experienced better there. Our reservation was at 4 PM, they were dirty dishes with leftover food on several tables on the patio. They were still there when we left at six. The roasted chicken was plain and very overpriced. Drinks are weak. Waitress was not friendly. It was not busy at all when we arrived. And where the heck is the baby changing table? There are two bathrooms inside, and there was not a sign on either one that had a changing table. One bathroom was locked so we had to use the other. That was fun.
Overall the food was fair at best. Took 10 mins to be greeted by the waitress, 35 mins to get salads and other items very slowly after. Appetizer was soggy and cold. Such a cute restaurant just nothing good about it.
Enjoyed the overall experience. Food and ambiance is good. Wait staff/service while nice enough is sporatic and on the slow side.
