I met a friend here for drinks on a week night and was pleasantly surprised. The menu is sort of built to have the table share with each other. We had the cheese board (a huge board of cheese, nuts, honey, fruit) and the squid, which was delicious. Not a huge serving size, because as I said, the menu is built to be shared. Be prepared to spend, prices are trendy-West-Hollywood prices. The drinks were no exception. I had the Eveleigh lemonade, which is delicious, but you get about three sips, and you’re done (drinks are $15). I didn't find anyone to be snooty or rude at all. The bartender and waitress were both very nice.
Loved the decor and ambiance. There’s a front and back patio with tables on both, strewn with white lights. Anyone who knows me knows that if there’s a roof top bar and/or white lights, I’m a happy drinker. We wanted to sit in the back patio (front patio is cute, but gets a lot of the Sunset noise), but it was closed for a private party. Def have to come back to sit out there. It looked lovely from what I could tell, and my dinner partner said he had sat out there and thoroughly enjoyed it. Inside there is a large bar in the center with tables around it. The center of the bar’s ceiling is decorated with cow skulls. I know, I know, but it works. The divergence of WeHo trendy with Arizona cowboy just works. We sat at a table inside, which had a fun, low key vibe, and you can smoke on the patio if need be.
Valet parking is $6, but it’s a tight squeeze into the driveway (beware large SUVs). There is also public parking across the street for $1 per hour. Metered parking can be found on Sunset Blvd (if you’re lucky).
I'm adding this to my rotation of "go to" restaurants in the area. Especially if you live/work in Hollywood or WeHo it’s worth a gander.
