Finally made it here. Firstly, the food here is amazing. The staff and service were top notch. They have a nice but somewhat small list of cocktails and spirits, but itís a well put together list. Nice selection of bottles and a very respectable tap list. The place isnít cheap, but it was a truly excellent experience. I will definitely try to make it back here soon. If you plan on going on a weekend night, reservations are highly recommended. We sat down right away because of it, but other parties were waiting quite awhile.

Came for the first time for a Sunday Supper. Ambiance is nice with a cool vibe, the TVs playing the Sunday night NFL game was a bit odd for the environment but I didnít mind. Had around 20 taps of all California craft offerings. Higher end selection of food that was very well done. Only complaint would be the meal was very much a crazy mix of styles. Very good but not cohesive. The best was no corkage fee for bottles so we shared a number of fun bottles and gave the remains to the staff. Would come back for sure.

Great little place in Santa Ana. Free parking on weekends in a lot across the street. Stopped by for a Sunday brunch. Great food as to be expected. Pork Belly Hash was killer. Menu changes daily. Casual atmosphere with a few TVs for sports games. Great beer selection of about 15 taps, all Californian. The concept is that each beer is $5 for either a 16 oz, 12 oz or 7oz pour depending on the cost of the keg. Jarred was working behind the bar and was friendly as always. Really a great stop in the area. Very fair pricing.
