This restaurant was good, but could have been better. The renovations to the restaurant are absolutely beautiful. The waiter we had was very nice, but the service was slow. A couple of the dishes we ordered came out about an hour after we ordered them, while other dishes came out right away. The food overall was good, but for us it could have been better. The one thing that makes this restaurant stand out are the views! The large outside deck offers spectacular views overlooking Burbank and parts of the San Fernando Valley. (By the way, this restaurant only serves dinner.)

Bread^

This appetizer was presented very well. It came out on a black slate board in a warm mini pan with a tasty dipping sauce made of pesto and the bread was split into 4 pieces to share. The inside of the bread was very moist and tasty. The bread was topped with some green garnish and had a sprinkle of rock salt. This bread was baked to perfection!

Chicken Tenders^

These tenders were on the kids menu. They were crispy and seasoned just right. The dish comes with a choice of fries which we ordered. All good!

Kale Caesar^

I love Kale salad, but I was a bit disappointed in it. This salad tasted very fishy to me even with removing the topped anchovies. Anchovies are not my favorite. It also was a bit too salty for my taste. Even though there were only a few anchovies on top, the taste spread throughout the salad. The salad overall was an okay size. The croutons were hard on the outside, but the inner layer was soft. Not a great flavor. :(

Up close of the Fries^

The fries tasted good. Came out hot and crispy with the right amount of salt.

Overall this restaurant deserves three stars. The restaurant looks beautiful, but the menu could also be expanded for more variety. There are very few choices to choose from.
