"I love the fresh food at Josie's and the reasonably priced wine. I always enjoy the unfriend rice with shrimp. I love the fresh bread and spread they have at the table, too. They also have clearly marked gluten free options."

"I seriously love everything about Bustan--the cocktails (fig lemonade!) and the green tahini, the bread, the grilled octopus, the lamb terracotta!! I love bringing people to Bustan because of the outstanding service and the delicious food! One tip: make a reservation. The busy restaurant rarely has room for walk-ins."

"I was blown away by how awesome Bustan's food was! It is not easy to just walk-in to Bustan so I finally got around to making a reservation and my friend and I were REALLY impressed. We enjoyed the hummus with mushrooms, the green tahini spread, tzatziki, and the smoked eggplant. Most amazed by the green tahini. We loved the chopped salad! And then the lamb shawarma served on a little steamed bun. And the service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and helpful making recommendations. I will definitely be back and continue to bring friends here."

"Taco Tuesday = Crazy SOL! I read about this restaurant on Opentable when visiting the Newport Beach area. I loved the food and the live music! Definitely try the mango margarita with the chili rim, and the peppers stuffed with shrimp. I would highly recommend this restaurant even with the issues we had below.
The only bad interaction I had was with the staff at the front desk. I called because we were running late (I was in town for a work meeting). They bumped up my reservation 15 minutes and then I was 5 minutes late from that and they gave away my table because they said I wasn't there and they already bumped my table once. I could understand this if I hadn't called to say I was running late, but that wasn't the case. They offered me a table in an HOUR AND FIFTEEN minutes. Thankfully I was able to find a table in the bar section after about 30 minutes. Moral of the story: don't be late! And watch your CC at the bar--my colleague was given the wrong credit card after closing the bar bill and didn't realize until the next morning. A kind manager dropped it off at the hotel which resolved that issue."

Chef Michael Psilakis and partner Donatella Arpaia have moved their rustic Greek gem, Kefi, to a larger space at 505 Columbus Avenue. The new, 200-seat interior evokes the feeling of a palatial Greek hideaway broken up into several smaller dining rooms to keep Kefi’s intimate appeal.<br /><br />The menu of favorites straight from Psilakis’ childhood will remain the same with some new additions. Signature dishes like Baccala, crispy-fried cod with garlic potatoes and tomato, Grilled Octopus with bean salad, and Hilopita, baked pasta with rabbit ragout and béchamel are still on offer. Additions include Grilled Sardines with chopped “Greek Salad” and garlic sauce, Macaronia Spestofai, tubular pasta with Greek sausage, peppers, onions, tomato and feta and an entirely new section of Greek Sandwiches featuring house-made sausages and pork and lamb gyro.

"I haven't been to Kefi since they had closed and reopened...and I really can't say why. It was fun to return! My dining mate was very excited to see gluten free options on the menu, however we were disappointed to learn that there were no gluten free pitas available that evening! I enjoyed the chicken souvlaki and my friend the lamb chops. We will definitely be back again soon."

"I have always been a fan of Bluewater Grill but I haven't been by for brunch in a while and was meeting up without of town guests and thought the Jazz Room would be a good idea. I was wrong--it was an AWESOME idea! The music was wonderful--perfect volume for still carrying on a conversation. The food was excellent. And really quite a bargain since coffee and a cocktail are included with the breakfast items. I will definitely be back--I don't know why I had been away for so long!!"
