    Food was great, albeit a bit pricey. Had the Mexican Sea Bass in some sort of squash sauce. Delish. Oh, and the sangria was the bomb. Overall, a decent place to get higher end Mexican cuisine.

    A great neighborhood sushi joint. From the outside it's not really inviting. Once inside you will find the place to be clean. The fish is fresh and the service is great! I recommend Kaido for a mid-week sushi spot or the weekend if you want to avoid the LA madness. I hear Kaido has an awesome lunch as well.

    it has that old-school Spanish decor that was the fashion then....red leather booths, black wrought iron, exposed brick walls...Anyway, the early bird special for the prime rib is a really good deal. If you live in this neighborhood, or find yourself nearby, it is worth checking out.

    this is a fabulous restaurant. It is clean and lovely, with a beautiful patio. Located on the north end of Main Street, this place has apparently been around for over 30 years.

    Tasty dishes, real homemade feel to them.

    Its not really a wine bar, but more like a cool lounge. Great music, lots of space to sit and have an actual conversation. Highly recommended for meeting friends, date, etc!!!

    It was average food and I was hoping and expecting a lot more. I went with a few friends for breakfast mid-week. It wasn't crowded and we got a table right away. It looked cute and atmosphere was fun, but food wasn't much to write home about.
