Amazing food!

This is by far the most inventive, delicious, and wonderful meal I have ever experienced. It is the best in California, or in fact, the whole US!

We were greeted warmly and seated on the third level of the restaurant. We had the mussels which were outstanding with a tasty broth that required all the bread to soak it up - YUM! I had the beet salad and my wife the corn soup - both dishes were outstanding in presentation and taste! Entrees were Pork chop for... More

Great intimate place for dinner or just a Saturday of wine tasting. Dinner is worth the price and make sure to secure a reservation they go fast. Join the wine club! This is my favorite place to enjoy a great dinner. They have seasonal menus so you aren't going to have the same thing all of the time. Also, throughout... More

We love this restaurant but our recent experience left us a little disappointed. When I give a 5* rating I expect every course of the meal to be excellent but that was not the case recently. We started with the Steamed Mussel appetizer and it was fantastic, absolutely no complaints. For entrees I had the Veal Breast which sounded very... More

Interesting menus, good food,beautiful presentation. Nice place to celebrate a special event. Service is good, although, sometimes a little rushed. Make a reservation as the dining room is small. Also a Wine store and bar, with wine tastings for their club members on Saturdays. They host many special wine club events. All in all a great place to spend the... More

I love this resturant! It is romantic and quaint right in the heart of Auburn. The dinners are gourmet with a beautiful presentation. The wine selection is fabulous and very inexpensive. Perfect place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary with someone special!

This is a very fine, charming, wonderful restaurant in Auburn California's Old Town. We were here with the same friends eight years ago and the superb quality has sustained over the years. Service is stellar, informative if you have questions about the area, wineries, etc., but unintrusive otherwise. Our table had the popcorn while we chose a wine, and the... More

This is one of the best restaurants that my wife and I have ever dined at worldwide. A fantastic chef is always crafting an ever changing menu and the knowledgable staff are experts in pairing wines with every course of the meal. If you like a wine, you can always take home a case! The wines are priced less than... More

This restaurant is top notch. I enjoyed the foie gra appetizer. The pork chop and veal breast delicious. The. beet salad excellent yum. Next time I want to try a tasting menu. The quality of the ingredients and the sophisticated way they are used in each dish is very impressive! I will be back.
