The food is excellent - great soup, ravioli, chicken and berry crisp. Fortunately we were able to dine outside, because inside felt like a hybrid of bowling alley and beer hall (it was Friday). In addition, our waiter acted like we should be grateful that he was gracing us with his presence.
We went here and had the worst experience. We went in and they told us the kitchen was closed. It was somewhat late (8:45) and was understandable. No problem at that point. We had a couple of drinks in the bar filled with mostly old men. Two men come in and sit at the table directly next to us. The owner tells them of course they can have food. That would not have been so bad, but the waitress that told us the kitchen was closed passes by us, takes their order and passes us to go the kitchen, passes us again without a word with food for their table. Then two people come in off the street, they seat them in the restaurant and they order food. Only after that, the waitress comes over and offers us food. We were so annoyed that we rejected it at that point even though I was starving. Their wine was over priced and that was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. We live in Pleasanton and will never go back again. Totally rude behavior!
Overall very good. Nice entertainment with some 70's/soul music in the bar that you can hear while eating. Service was great and all dishes were what you would expect for the price and setting...on par with Haps for overall quality.
This is a very nice restaurant, perhaps my favorite in Pleasanton. The patio dining on a warm night is great if a group isn't scheduled.
The bar is so-so but everything else is great. Wonderful wine selection.
On Thursday nights the restaurant features live music on the large concrete patio, however, the place is way over rated. First you can't order a glass of ice water with your meal or other drinks; if you do, a bottle Kirkland (Costco) water is served without a cup for a charge of $2. ( I thought restaurants were required to serve free water when requested.) Most alcoholic drinks other than beer run about $10/glass. The worst part of being there came when I had to use the restroom, however, there are no restrooms. There are only portable toilets. With well over 400 people consuming all those drinks even at $10 a pop, there is simply not enough toilets to accommodate all the patrons - usually long lines. You would think with all the money the place makes, they can afford to install some decent restrooms. Not very cool...
