Sorry to say, rude wait staff, waited almost an hour to get the first dish of 6 people eating. I literally had to take my dish "to go" because the kids were falling asleep. Also, the table was disgusting from the setting before, which is undeniably wrong and uncleanly. I WILL NEVER RETURN!!! There are so many better restaurants in... More

Where do I begin, from dinner back in December to Brunch in June, beef short ribs vs eggs benedict.? In a few words, brunch was stellar! Dinner, just needed more seasoning. Love the ambience and the local talent that entertained us. Worth the crazy drive to get here.

Cachagua General Store is open only on Sundays (Brunch and Dinner) and Mondays (Dinner). Went there for a Monday night dinner. Word of warning, if you're squeamish about winding road and switchback turns, don't attempt the drive. Of all the roads in France, Italy I've driven, this is one of the windiest roads with the sharpest turns. Personally I loved... More

Not sure how or why Michael Jones keeps producing his Monday night dinners, but the results are noteworthy. Our party of three had a pear salad, crab cake, and sole ceviche for appetizers...each was first rate. Our main courses were a double pork chop (Fred Flintstone size), Barney Rubble lamb shank, and filet of sole. I would put Mike's cooking... More

Just went here in July for a friends birthday! Best dinner I have had in a long time. Everything was fabulous. Very rustic and only opened Monday night for dinner but fantastic fare.

It had been awhile since we journeyed out to the Store...too long. Just another incredible meal to savor and reflect upon. We shared an appetizer of Pumpkin Squash Ableskivers on a bed of sautéed spinach, trumpet mushrooms, and a few other harmonious ingredients...delicious! Main courses were wagyu flap steak and lamb shank, both prepared perfectly with complimentary sides...dessert was bread... More

This is a wonderful hidden gem in the mountains of Carmel Valley. My husband and I go every chance we get during the Summer. Check any pretentiousness at the door. This place has paper curtain, guitars and a pup or two to greet the guests! I had baby back ribs last Monday paired with a Morgan Pinot Noir. Outstanding! This... More

Don't want to reveal this hidden gem! This place is like a dream! Really...a country store in the middle of nowhere...with a gourmet Chef and crew that show up on Mondays and put on.."a moveable feast" that is beyond your wildest dreams! With two settings only..terser actions required! David and Pat bang out some serious music on the Congo Drums..and... More
