astonishing – fresh, fresh, fresh. such imagination. pumpkin ravioli so spicy and sweet. calimari came with veggies and herbs which dramatically accented and balanced the flash fried morsels. I look forward to any opportunity to return to the city so as to (re) sample the fare. oh yes; the, by-the glass, wine list is quite good.
Food was great, service was okay – It is a good thing the food at this restaurant was delicious, it made up for the service. The waitstaff seemed indifferent and unattentive. Our waiter did not acknowledge my presence at the table, directing all of the questions to my date.
Other than the loud atmosphere and the service, the food was wonderful and worth a trip back.
User review by phillycmc – Food was inventive and delicious - what a combination of ingredients and flavors. But it worked, it worked out very well. My only complaint is that the space is too brown.
California cuisine with a multicultural streak draws the buff and the beautiful to this Castro hot spot. – The Scene
The chic bar and the main dining area, with its muted yellow walls, high ceilings and tiny wire-strung spotlights, are both welcoming and stylish. The same can be said for the service; from the maitre d' to the bartender and waiters, the staff is poised, but not aloof. Although lunch is casual, dinner can be quite a scene, as the pretty people congregate for exotic cocktails.
Highlighting fresh, seasonal ingredients, the chef's stylistic influences come from all over the globe, from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean. For starters, try the Thai lamb spring rolls with fennel and mint salad. Roasted chicken is a perennial dinner favorite, served with a rich, smooth, downright divine version of garlic mashed potatoes. Brunch offerings might include a sandwich of perfectly roasted eggplant and peppers with creamy goat cheese that's wrapped, Middle Eastern-style, in toasted lavash bread.
Will Return to Work Thru This Menu! – From the moment, I entered this beautiful place, it was filled with warmth from the sun setting and the smell of great food. Great drinks at the bar - I recommend the refreshing Raspberry Lemonade - very tart! My dinner companion and I shared the delectable lamb spring rolls and the out-of-this world corn fritters. You can just order this and dessert - and be perfectly HAPPY! We also shared the steak with perfectly cooked gratin potatoes and mussel/clam/shrimp dish. I have to say the potatoes as a side dish could stand alone. For dessert we had the delicate polenta cake with grilled peaches - a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. Great value and generous portions.
Sublime! – I took a dear friend to 2223 for his birthday and we enjoyed it immensely. The charming room was full of festive, handsome people enjoying themselves. The cocktails and food were excellent, and both were served in equally large portions. The service was cheerful and friendly. They remembered my friend's birthday, and it seems like this is the sort of place many people want to visit on their birthdays. I cant recommend it highly enough.
you call it good brunch??? – We booked this place specifically for Sunday brunch. I expected some fabulous dishes and ambiance you would not find in too many places. My expectations were not met at all. The place looks like a cafeteria, food is OK. Brunch is NOT their specialty. Take your business and money elsewhere.
Great! – Friends and I dine-out quite frequently all over the city. Last night we went here and it was great. We all ordered something different, creating our own lil' tasting menu. Beef tenderloin, grilled salmon, goat cheese cakes, pancetta-wrapped monkfish, duck confit... the sweetbreads are terrific. The cesear salad is almost enough for 2, overflowing with whole leaf romaine, parmesan cheese and tart capers. The artichoke soup comes adorned with a bruschetta topped with goat cheese and savory proscuitto. Great selection of wines and desserts. If you like mojitos, absolutely try their vanilla version!
Great date place – I made hassle-free reservations via OpenTable for my weekly date with hubby. We arrived 30 minutes early and hung out at the bar for a while before being seated slightly earlier than our reservation time.
The lamb was DELICIOUS. It sells out often. It's a tad on the salty side, so eat it with bread. Their portions are large so you can probably skip the appetizer (although their cream of cauliflower soup is very yummy). Hubby had the pork chops which was also tasty.
We'd definitely go back.
Attention to Detail – Great place for a nice little dinner out. Service was fantastic as we made reservations online and the waitstaff was friendly. The person who requested the reservation online also mentioned that it was my birthday and they surprised us with a nice little candlelit desert. The appetizers were small but the entrees were large portioned. Highly recommend for a nice date place.
