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 saw some good reviews online and decided to try Flavor. The upstairs dining room was well laid out with great views. Service was enthusiastic and friendly. The food was surprisingly good with generous portions. Very nice experience overall.

The Views and service were 1st rate. The food was excellent. We had a seared Tuna special and Jambalaya. Both were exceptional. Waiter was attentive and personable without being interruptive. Views of the bay and ocean were pleasant and Sunset is great if there is no marine layer rolling in. Chocolate dessert was sinfully good.

My wife and I were driving up Highway 1 looking for a place to eat before we went to San Francisco airport. There were not a lot of good choices. We remembered this place from years before, so we stopped. The restaurant had changed hands since we last visited; new menu and people. I like the menu better. The view... More

What a delightful surprise to find this restaurant with an extensive menu. Friendly and efficient staff. I ordered the tri-tip sandwich which came on a ciabatta roll with fries and the sandwich was huge with an overwhelming amount of beautiful tasty meat and they were generous with great fries too. My friend had the veggie burger with all the trimmings... More

We had a 7p reservation. Didn't get seated until 7:15. They were not crowded and told two groups without reservations that came in right after us that it would be about 10 minutes. We were seated near the interior while one of the walk-ins was seated in the second row from the windows and another seated at the windows. Making... More

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.
