I used the groupon yesterday which indicated the expiration date as June 29 ( yesterday was the last day of using the groupon). The server said that i couldn't use it because it doesn't indicate the time of the expiration on June 29. How absurd is it? i use the groupon on June 29 so it means it valid until midnight . He said what if it expired in the morning, wouldn't he has to pay out of his pocket? Unbelievable service !!

The service absolutely sucked. It's like the people working there really don't want to be there, and they really don't want you to be there either. And the food is totally overrated. I will never go back and will go out of my way NOT to recommend it.

It's not one of the trendy places on Abbot Kinney, but for the once a year or so for almost 10 years, still a solid meal at fair price. The Groupon does help.
