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

It is a lovely location. The art on the walls was the first turn off. Dinner was over priced and just ok. My nieces mussels were good. Her spinach salad just ok. I had fried shrimp and chips. I received many french fries. There was plenty of shrimp very deep fried with some shell left on which I always find... More

We just went here the other night and the place was nearly empty. The staff was very friendly and the place was very inviting, but I don't think there's anything on the menu for less than $20 a plate. The food was well cooked but it was just ok at best. Not a single person in my party finished their... More

Ok, we had had the fresh crab (yum) but felt like steaks for dinner. She had the rib eye and I had the skirt steak with a wonderful Brandy and cream sauce. Our waiter was very attentive and did not blink at the many special requests to trade out side dishes. We were thrilled to find MacMurray as the pinot... More

We went here to celebrate a late birthday. The food was plentiful. We ordered the crab cakes (2.5 out of 5), fish & chips (3 out of 5), crab chowder (5 out of 5), kids meal (2.5 out of 5). The kids meal was a grilled cheese sandwich with thick bread and way too many french fries, wish they could... 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.

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 Seafood... More

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
