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.

Relaxing dinner with very good food

I stopped in to Flavor on an impulse; had always thought about it when passing by, but had not pulled the trigger, so to speak. I happened to walk in right at the beginning of the dinner service and I'm really glad I did. I opted for a glass of prosecco, and at the server's suggestion I ordered the... read more

We took our girl scout troop here for lunch our end of year celebration and the girls really enjoyed it. Lots of space, nice decor, and reasonable value for money.

Took advantage of a TravelZoo special for our first visit with family members. The restaurant is near the water just north of Half Moon Bay. The front of the restaurant is shaped like a portion of an octagon and provides lots of window seating with good views of the coast and ocean. It has a high, open ceiling and a... More

We visit the area frequently to see family members who live close by and we always enjoy visiting Flavor for lunch! Their burgers are terrific and you can order the burger with a salad which isn't over dressed. If you are in the mood for fries instead of salad, the fries are very good also! They grind their own meat... More

Nice location, terrible food and worse service. It took what seemed like forever for the meal to come out and when it did, all the dishes did not arrive at the same time. All within 15 minutes of the first dish. When asked what was going on the server told us the person who does the scheduling

Costs were average, bar lower level looked interesting but didn't experience; dining upstairs has large windows and you have great ocean view if you are seated by some of the windows. Portions were good, but some items arrived warm and not hot.

The food is amazing. The chef does some wonderful things with breakfast foods. The coffee was terrific as well. Very friendly staff, with great views of the harbor.

The location is convenient but limited menu. Who ever heard of an expensive cheeseburger with no pickles? Might seem trivial but indicative of their service (surly waiter) which included burnt fries. Waiter got upset and said people loved their fries...you've been warned. There is the Chowder House near by would go there and price about the same.

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.
