A modern-classic Asian restaurant, our kitchen focuses on an array of Chinese Regional dishes, Japanese and South-East Asian flavors. We create bold flavors through casual dishes. A full bar serves craft cocktails inspired by Asian ingredients.

"Osmanthus, a sweet smelling flower, is the name of this wonderful spot. Decor is tasteful, restful but has a certain attractive energy. The people who seat and serve are delightful and knowledgeable. The food: brilliantly executed Shanghai/Chinese and Southeast Asian for people who don't think they like that kind of food. Knowing the real deal from extensive travel, I'd say the food at Osmanthus makes a great case for transporting the experience back to what is familiar. While fusion is overused, the ideas of the eastern cultures have achieved greater heights here. Portions are generous and the wine list is chosen for its compatibility with the food. The cocktails are wonderful and have a similar aesthetic. Lovely. Reasonable prices."

Mercado in Santa Monica is an inventive mix of food, atmosphere and tradition, reflecting the heart & soul of New Mexican dining. The main dining room is an eclectic fusion of modern design, accented with classic touches, that create the ultimate in intimate upscale dining while remaining accessible and comfortable. The menu, created by Chef Jose Acevedo, exemplifies the cuisine and flavor of he and co-owner Jesse Gomez’s deep Mexican roots, featuring items such as Chef Acevedo's signature Carnitas, created from a recipe handed down through generations. With tortillas made by hand, the finest meats, poultry and seafood, flavorful sauces, carefully crafted ceviches, enchiladas and tacos, produce from the local farmers' market, and everything made from the freshest ingredients, Mercado offers handcrafted cuisine, artful design, warm atmosphere and service that is both friendly and informed to guide each guest through the dining experience. We look forward to having you join us soon!

"Beginning with the pleasant greeting from the host to the lovely drinks and food, till we paid and left, the experience was a seamless and delightful brunch experience on Fathers Day. The sangria--fabulous and not too sweet--an adult drink. Carnitas, chilaquiles, huevos rancheros: all expertly prepared and muy delicioso. Only caveat is they have a bunch of those communal tables. They're fine for a group but if you don't want one, be sure to tell them ahead of time when you reserve."

Feast's menu changes on the first Tuesday of each month, and remains the same for both lunch and dinner, as well as in between. This keeps our menu seasonally appropriate and offers up the freshest ingredients possible at the height of their season. We think this also keeps it interesting. It's our hope that if we're excited about the menu, you'll be excited as well. Our private dining room accommodates up to 50 people. Feast is also a wine and liquor shop with twenty wines by the glass, a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner for the past five years running, and a full-service caterer.

"The good: the food at Feast is wonderful. Beautifully presented and brilliantly executed entrees; salad split for us in the kitchen. The wine list is amazing in its breadth and pricing; accessible at all price points and styles. The manager/sommelier is very knowledgeable and helpful. Waitstaff is skillful. The bad: there is no ambiance. Seating is linear and predictable like a coffee shop; the center long table is a white elephant in the room. The lighting is harsh and the interior decor does not invite lingering or feel special in any way. It doesn't matter that the place has no view. The management needs the eye of someone who knows how to design a restaurant interior so that the place looks as good as the food."

A AAA Four Diamond winner for 17 consecutive years, GOLD offers a new, more contemporary culinary adventure. A completely new menu concept created by the resort’s new Executive Chef James Wallace blends fresh and innovative contemporary American cuisine with a touch of desert-inspired flavor. Panoramic mountain and city views.

"Gold's traditional menu of main courses is kicked into high gear with the creative and interesting appetizers. In fact we made our meal from a combination of these appetizers and salads. These small plates give the chef a great opportunity to show his/her culinary creativity. The mains were predictable and heavy. Our decision to dine on the appetizers was met with total acceptance and flexibility. The wine list is fairly limited and pricey. It is delightful dining on the outdoor patio with a panoramic view of Tucson, the twinkling lights, and even a plane landing at the airport in the distance. It was a Wed night...the restaurant was empty save one other table. It lacked the energy of people enjoying themselves on a night out."
