Best 'home' cooking in Sierra Vista

Small hidden gem in an area without much in great cooking. Great steak with mushroom sauce, surprisingly good Mahi-Mahi with a Hawaiian style mango sauce. Great deserts, too. Limited but excellent wine list.

We went for my birthday. Food is good but no Wow effect considering the high price paid. Nothing is really exciting on the menu. The decor and atmosphere are all on the boring side. Crumble sugar topping was only browned half of the bowl. Staff seems to be friendly to their regular customers. For a more memorable dinning out experience,... More

Small quaint restaurant with charm. Pricey menu but the food is gourmet and the only place in Sierra Vista for a foodie. The desserts are not made in house. The owner is very visible and will likely come by your table to check on your meal.

My family recently went here for our anniversary dinner. The service is good and the staff is friendly. The food was very good and we will come back again.

If you have a REALLY special occasion that you'd like to celebrate, this is the place to do it! The steaks are great, the seafood is the best around and the service is simply the BEST in Cochise County! They will make you feel special from the minute you walk through the door. 10 years ago, we went there to... More

They always offer a special dinner. The cob salad for lunch is the best. The service is wonderful. The have a really good wine selection and they don't mind offering you a sample of the wine you might want to try.

It's expensive and fancy, but our chicken and pork chops were dry and uninteresting. However, the risotto was delicious. For the price, we probably wouldn't return.

Fine dining in a cosy atmosphere. A little out of town (4 miles south of Sierra Vista on Hwy 92). Great menu and food preparation and presentation is excellent. Very reasonable prices for the quality of the food presented.

It would be easy to pass this place by; it's south of Sierra Vista in an unassuming, semi-industrial area. When we went for lunch it was really crowded, mostly with groups of senior women. Because it was so busy we were surprised there were only two waitresses, who were good enough but certainly not as attentive as they would have... More
