We had dinner here and the restaurant is quite small and very busy with tables very close together. Service was vey good and speedy but the food a little disappointing. Our soft Shell crabs were very greasy and the Calamari was nicely cooked, very tender but pretty tasteless, unless dipped in the Chilli-Soy dipping sauce, then it tasted of Chilli-Soy... More

We ate here twice during a recent stay in wine country--both at lunch time. Great bistro menu, great food and excellent service (George, in particular). Over the two visits, a group of us had the chicken livers, the mussels, the bistro club sandwiches, the brussels sprouts and the plate of 1000 fries. Everything was cooked to perfection. I can't wait... More

Clean white walks and a trendy atmosphere is what you first notice when you enter! There is an open kitchen at the back where the chefs prepare freshly made dishes of chicken livers, homemade heirloom tomato soup and I had PEI mussels that were plump and juicy resting in a rich wine,garlic anise broth. The waitress was attentive and you... More

Never disappoints, great food and service but we go for the Martinis. Never a bad meal.... This is an expensive but worthwhile place to dine.

Excellent service and very good food. I had what supposedly were their two best dishes, an octopus appetizer and a duck confit main dish; they were delicious and well prepared. The other people ordered a selection of appetizers, all tasty and good. Reserve early if you want to eat before 8:30 and go for one of the two outside tables... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. Nice spot on the square. I had a salmon sandwich and it was quite good. It was a quiet spot in the middle of the afternoon.

Our table was squashed by the side of the bar, this particular evening was... More

One of the finest meals we had during a 12 week road trip. Friendly service too! Loved the fresh watermelon salad and the 1000 french fries. Jamie, the chef prepared a special meal for my niece Kris who is vegan. Extremely accommodating. Looking forward to going back on my next trip to the west coast.

I have lunch here at least once a month. A wonderful feeling of old and new world wine country classic cuisine. Traditional bistro at its best. You will be satisfied, comfortable, and relaxed and unsure if you are in Sonoma County of a small village in France. If you are a liver fan (I am)....this is nirvana.
