The Menlo site was not appealing. I tried it once. Narrow, dark, claustrophobic interior & no afternoon sun on the dinky sidewalk area (wrong side of the street) so it's always chilly. I go to San Carlos where the noise level inside is too high with blaring TVs but at least there's some natural light & the patio is comfortable. Tip to owners: don't pick an east-facing location.
