Warm and intimate. A lovely meal,well served. Full menu and bar.Every dish prepared and served with care and grace. Our favorite restaurant in Idyllwild. We've had lunch there and was served the best Reuben ever. Brunch is very nice. Beautiful surroundings whether you choose inside or patio, great service and all at reasonable prices. Our favorite every time.

Too expensive and pretentious for a small town. We were quite surprised with the prices being so high in such a small town. We actually felt out of place there in our shorts and flip flops.

Awesome food and great service! We had dinner and then went back for lunch the next day. It's a nice rustic building and quiet inside or you can enjoy eating outside on the patio on a nice day.

While the location and atmosphere are great, I wasn't impressed by the food. The food was bland and lacked excitement for the price. There are better places to eat in town.

I went to Gastrognome for dinner Saturday night with my boyfriend and another couple. They all had yummy pasta dishes. My friend had the smoked salmon one. I had macadamia crusted halibut which was amazing! The service was great too! Although we sat inside, they have a cozy bar and outdoor patio. It's a little pricey but well worth it!

We went up the hill for the Lilly Festival. Decided to try a new place. We ate on the patio under the trees. Was a real nice day. I had the Ruben Sandwich, it contained perfectly cooked and flavored. The dressing was classic and the Sauerkraut was crunchy and not to sour, This was a good sandwich. My wife ordered... More

We were seated quickly and service was great for a Friday night. Everyone was very pleased with their meal. I had the citrus chicken which was very flavorful, obviously marinated for an appropriate amount of time and grilled to perfection. It also came with a small cup of sauce that was citrus, sweet, and delicious. Service was great and attentive.... More

Quaint building with mostly local clientele (when I was there mid-week). The service was efficient and the food was great, not out-of-this-world. Had fish and green beans and could tell the beans were fresh which was good to know. Overall, it seemed a little over-priced, but all in all a nice place that I would eat at again.
