The food was very good but for lunch, the menu was very expensive. I would have liked to see some moderately priced items - maybe then, more people might have been dining there. Server was excellent - my only complaint was the price. More

American | Westwood, Westside

The overall experience st The Tuck room was pleasant. The ambiance and service was great . The salmon puffs were delicious. The breakfast was not all that pleasing. I had the short rib with the soft poached egg with mascarpone and kale. The dish was not seasoned well and tasted rather bland. The three others in our party found the food tasty. We will try this place again because it’s worth giving it another chance for the other positive experiences. More
