Fodor's Review

With punched-tin ceilings, mason-jar light fixtures, and eclectic decor inspired by Versailles' Petit Trianon, this pescatarian restaurant focuses on pleasing the senses. Executive Chef Gabriel Hernandez sources most of the organic produce from local farms, creating a menu that changes seasonally. Flavor combinations are anything but accidental. Start with a garlicky hummus of red lentils. The signature Verde Mesa rice is a mixture of in-season vegetables and chickpeas, and there are also quite a few expertly prepared seafood dishes. You might find tuna, salmon, and scallops on the menu, depending on what's fresh that day. Swordfish is sometimes served as a refreshing ceviche dish that will melt in your mouth. Scallops might be served on a bed of stewed white beans with pineapple, sunflowers, and salsa verde. The restaurant has a small, yet impressive wine selection to pair with your meal. Reservations are not accepted, so arrive early if going for dinner.
