I haven't been in a while but it was well worth the wait! I split the GF mushroom/spinach pizza and Cobb Salad with a friend and both were delicious! Our server (JT I believe) was so personable and wonderful! He even brought a flourless cupcake for our friend that was celebrating a birthday. I can't wait to go back again soon!!

Our waiter was EXCELLENT, but the air conditioning was definitely not working properly and it put a damper on the whole evening for me. It started to cool off at one point when it was less crowded and then within 10 minutes it was sweltering again. I was dripping sweat. The shrimp tacos were nothing special and broke through the corn tortillas the first time I tried to pick up the taco. The hummus and edamame dumplings were delicious.

There was a spider on my burger (which i don’t think is vegan but but very farm-to-table, so props, I guess). Other than that, the server was very nice along with the rest of the staff.

This was a lovely dining experience in the Mosaic District in Merrifield/Fairfax.. The staff was very professional and nice and the food was excellent. We never once felt rushed and we stayed for quite a while.

I thought the prices were right for the portions and the quality of the dishes. We had the guacamole, the tuna poke bowl, and the shrimp tacos - all to share - and were very full by the end. Do note that the shrimp taco entree is only two street taco-sized tacos (so smallish). It’s a perfect dish to share with someone if you also order something else like an appetizer or second entree. Also, the cocktails were very good and refreshing with some unusual ingredients. We liked them so much we each ordered a second drink.

We also sat outdoors. The restaurant’s outdoor space is very nice. You’re definitely outside, but you don’t feel as if you’re on the sidewalk.

Id highly recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for healthy lighter sit down meals in a restaurant with a nice atmosphere.

Host at the front door was not friendly at all on Monday 14 June. When I come and say "Hello" at was zero attention on me! After me arrived my boyfriend only after lady said hello, just a moment please. And we were staying and waiting when it was no people at all in line.I have reservation for Birthday dinner. Lady at front desk ignore that moment at all and we just seat at the bar. It was odd. We order tacos with shrimps it was amazing and tacos with beef was so-so dry. We like this place but this time we do not have a great experience at all.
