Off the main highway in historic Amador City is this gem of a hotel. Each of the six rooms is unique. We stayed in #5 with a king bed and private bath. It was cute, quiet and comfortable. Loved that there was no TV. Had dinner in their downstairs restaurant. The host, Pete, was very gracious. The high ceilinged dining... More

LOVED the breakfast of Ham Strada, fruit cup and blueberry muffin. Great coffee too! Dinner the night before was a couple of 'starters'. The butternut squash soup was delicious, but sort of on the verge of being lukewarm. That was the only thing we had any complaint with. The bread basket they brought out had a lovely wheat bread. The... More

We were staying at the Imperial Hotel and decided to make dinner easy and just eat in the hotel's dining room. We stopped by the bar on our way to the restaurant where we met Peter, the manager of the hotel, the bartender, waiter, bus boy...he had so many jobs that if he retired unemployment in this county would drop...

Eat here on a Saturday afternoon, only one other couple in the place. Service very slow, ordered a couple glasses of wine and the waitress spilled some of my husbands, she said no problem because she had over poured them anyway, I wonder what you get if they do not do this. Had a panini it had about 3 pieces... More

We ate here three consecutive nights in October. We had our dog with us so we ate on the patio. They were kind enough to give us the same table each night. I had the lamb special the first night and it was delicious. The service was excellent. The wine was not overpriced. I don't remember what I had the... More

It is a bit out of the way (and very dark streets with a lot of construction when we visited), but a nice regional option for dinner. Service was good and the variety of entrees ordered prepared well. I found the pork and mustard sauce very flavorful. Portions looked to be on the small side, but turned out to be... More

I would give the ambience and the service five stars but the food deserves only one star. The food presentation was well done but the first bite was a big let down. Flavorless, not complex in any way. We tried the duck, the halibut, the soup, and the crepes. All of these were disappointing. My guess is they need a... More

The dinner my wife and I had was outstanding in every way. The service was excellent. We both had their vichyssoise soup to start with. I had cannelloni, and she had the Mediterranean platter. Dessert was a pound cake with blueberries and raspberries as garnish, topped with whipping cream. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious. All of this while seated... More

This review is for the food only: My sister and I stayed at this hotel and had a very bad experience with the restaurant. Food very plain, overpriced and the service horrendous. I ordered the chicken, which came out with plain white rice, unseasoned vegetables and a sauce with canned mushrooms. Not sure if the chicken was microwaved or not,... More

Had eaten here many time in the past but this evening was even better. The bar was packed but almost no one in the restaurant. The service was prompt and very good as was the meal. There is a special during the week but I chose of the menu and was very pleased with the results. Obviously a nice wine... More
