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 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.

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.
