Anniversary Dinner

Very quaint restaurant in Idyllwild. We went there for our anniversary 8/30/15. I would say it is the nicest restaurant in town. We had a great meal and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Server was amazing, food was unbelievable. Salad was crisp, just the right amount caesar dressing. Pork chop was best I've ever had. Found the manager, I think she thought I was going complain ("are you the Mgr on duty"), and complimented server and food, a look of relief and a thank you, hopefully made the day. A little pricey but... More

Great food, great service. A variety of food for my dinner party of five. We had a very nice outdoor table to observe all that was going on around us. Could even hear the music from a nearby park concert. Steaks were good and fish of the day selection had macadamia crust that was delicious. Also a scalloped potato choice... More

Gastrognome has a really nice shady patio to enjoy a summer lunch outside. We were delighted with the wine list on which we located a number of favorites making ordering easy. The ahi tuna was really well prepared and delicious. The pork ribs were quite good as well.

Haven't been here for a number of years. It was nice to see the quality and service hasn't changed. Had an enjoyable date night with my spouse. Great ambiance and relaxing environment. The rack of lamb was outstanding as was the petite filet. Thought I recognized the manager. She's been there for 16 years! While it may seem a little... More

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!
