We believe that reasonably priced "American Comfort Food" is a rapidly disappearing culinary cuisine in the Bay Area. We decided that we would not let that vanish. Providing a fine balance of basic tasty foods and exquisite culinary delights where comfort and creativity collide, we proudly present El Granada with our latest venture- Flavor. What is California Comfort Food? Simply put, it is an attempt to take some of the classic and not so classic comfort dishes and have our wonderful chefs add some sort of twist to them. We will always try to provide the freshest ingredients and attempt to use local and organic ingredients when possible. Devin / Francisco

Modern restaurant

Nice restaurant with dining upstairs with great views of Half Moon Bay Marina and harbor. The owner was nice, they have an outdoor bar area downstairs. The food didn't really agree with my boyfriend though.

We shared a burger and fries and really had hoped for more flavor for sure. It was good enough but not equal to the prices.

We tried something different:) We sat at the bar and Gabrielle not only made a great Bloody Mary; but served us. The omelettes and especially the eggs Benedicts looked Super; however we went for the Seafood Pot Pie!!! Amazing.... They said we could split it and with no additional charge or fuss they made it happen. Really enjoyed and I... More

Great location we were staying at a local hotel and this was walking dustance. Had dinner on NYE so they were very busy. Service in the bar was fast and friendly but dining room needed some help. The fish and chips I had were very good and very generous on portions. My wife had the Filet and it was ok.... More

The food and service were excellent! Jason at the bar was great as well as Sam in the restaurant. We had the sea bass special and it was great. The food is very fresh.

This is about location, location, location. We liked the old Flavor -across the road- for several years. This new place will take some getting used to -like which menu you can use. We liked the romantic dreamy fire pit service. Why be inside when you can be outside at the ocean? The snacks we had were prepared well and we... More

I had a large salad with thinly sliced duck. It was just what I needed for lunch. My husband had the chicken pot pie. They have nice views of the water and comfy big seats. The service was friendly and kind. The portions were large. I would eat there again, but would prefer to explore other options first just to... More

I've been coming to Flavor for years and find the new location in the harbor to be too big. The way they have the menu split between the floors imposes restrictions on what you can order depending on where you are sitting. This used to be a nice comfortable neighborhood spot where we could always get a table and where... More
