This was one of the must do's for us on our trip to the U.S. What better than to be able to eat at Clints restaurant. The are no bookings and dinner seating starts at 5pm and its first in best dressed. If you do get there early ( which is recommended they give you pagers to let you know... More

We weren't able to get a table for dinner as they were booked (understandably), but we were able to get there just in time to grab the last table open for drinks on the patio. The view was incredible as was the service and cocktails too. There was even a wedding going on close by which was fun to see.... More

Juan Carlo was our server. He did not come back as is customary to ask if our meals were okay. Realizing he was not going to check in we asked a bus boy to please ask him to come over. It took him a full 7 minutes and by then everyone else in the party had almost finished their food.... More

Four of us had dinner Dec 6th and while everything started out fine it quickly went down hill. My husband and I both ordered the pork loin. His was two ribs, 3 inches thick, quite tender with a slim crisp edge of fat. Mine was 1 rib, 1 inch thin with at least 30% of what I did get gelatinous... More

Every part of this lovely place oozed class and charm. Beautiful mood lighting, gracious and attentive staff, incredible food, unique and delicious wine list. We sat outside by the large fireplace and heaters, and had a wonderful time! I had heard about the stunning view from the restaurant's windows, though my husband and I dined in the evening so it...

Most scenic thanksgiving dinner imaginable . Seated in covered deck with wondrous views of green river valley with grazing sheep until spectacular sunset. Turkey dinner very well prepared with generous portions. Did this before about six years ago and seems to get better. Dined here a few times between and always pleased with food, service and of course, the great... More

We were entertaining clients so the atmosphere/ location was a great place conversation starter. The piano bar is filled with regulars. Dirty Harry was not there the night we were. But the menu was great. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Its a little out of the way but worth the drive. The staff were very knowledgeable and made good recommendations.

My husband and I just returned from spending Thanksgiving in Carmel. I found the Mission Ranch on line and decided that it sounded like a special place to have our Thanksgiving dinner. Indeed it was! They normally do not take reservations, but when I called they said they would take a reservation exactly one month ahead of Thanksgiving. We choose... More

Waitress was ditsy/spacey, took an order for drinks and appetizers, walked off with the menus before we could discuss entrees. She seemed rushed and the restaurant was not busy.......the crab cakes were good and the steaks were as well. I would expect a higher level of service for a dinner tab over 100.00.
