We are open for outside dining on our newly constructed and greatly enlarged outdoor dining parklet, which, while still receiving some finishing touches over the next few days, is fully functional and comfortable, with many many heat lamps, and represents our commitment to creating a warm, welcoming, and savory experience for you and your guests! And we have been able to resume limited inside dining as well (25%). Please let us know your preference for inside or outside dining, but due to remaining Covid restrictions, we cannot guarantee seating in either area at this time, however if at all possible we will grant your request.

In addition, as always, we remain open for takeout, either pickup or delivery. Please call or order online and we will prepare a wonderful meal for you to enjoy at home.


Your safety and comfort are always the most important considerations for us and guide our seating decisions. This is especially true now, while our outside dining area is being re-designed to provide more shelter from winter weather. Consequently, our ability to offer outside dining will be based on the weather, and we will update this page daily with that information, which follows below:


Today, April 20, there is no rain forecast. But we have completed the roof on our parklet, and will be able to serve you outside tonight, if desired, with our heaters going to keep you warm if needed. Please call us at 805-966-9676 to inquire about availability and reserve a spot if we have an opening at the time you would like.
