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

This restaurant has some wonderful food choices and awesome beer & spirit selections. The daily fish special is always a great choice. And the fresh bread is always a delight.

We had eaten at Flavors before they moved. Decided to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were very disappointed. Service was stellar but food was just short of being extremely bad. Tasteless with lots of fillers. Seafood pot pie full of potatoes, lacking salt. All in sea food chowder also full of potatoes and bland. Husband had pork ragu and he... More

We followed recommendation and my wife had seafood Jambalaya and I Chicken Pot Pie. If you are a normal European you don't need apetizer or dessert. The portions are... More

Nice outside patio, fire pits, good small plates, a bit slow with service because the patio is far left side of main room. However great drink menu!

Flavor is a local watering hole. It overlooks the harbor and the view can be very nice if you have a window seat. Flavor's "meme" is that it serves "comfort food." This means that the food is savory, and the portions huge. It is relatively pricey because of that, which is one reason we do not eat there very often.... More
