With an authentic menu of Mediterranean and Pacific Rim cuisine, our beautifully crafted dishes will please the palates of your most revered guests.
Seriously...if there is a sign on the parking structure for the restaurant then you should be allowed to park there on an hourly basis! Parking cost 25 dollars! Do yourself a favor and park in the shopping centers free parking. Food was good, server was mediocre at best and the view was just ok.
The good news is they have a vegan menu, but it is a small one indeed. I got the Gado Gado salad because the other thing had mushrooms. It was good except it only came with 1/2 the amount of dressing needed and having to ask the waitress for more was not fun as she had an attitude. The value was good compared to Ferraro s which charged more for less food. They also served chips and tomatillo salsa with pureed edamame. Nice view too; you can see whales out there while you dine before the sun sets. But I can t say this restaurant is great because they serve up a lot of nasty stuff for customers with low standards and the prices aren t that great, even if they do beat Ferraro s.
