This has been suggested by someone else for a group of 6-8 women as a weekday dinner venue. I did a search on the boards here and was not impressed, to say the least. We are over 45, I should say. It does sound quiet, which might be why it was thought of, since we do want to be able to hear each other. Any other suggestions for better food and quiet surroundings--can be anywhere from Santa Monica to...La Brea I'd say. I've read great things about Mako. Is Mako too...extraverted? Other suggestions (a strange mix) from other people ranged from Zax to Campanile to San Gennaro (which I know nothing about). I would guess our price range would be about 40-45 or less. Wine is not a big issue. Thanks!
