Food is average. Decor is dated. If I'm going to spend over $50 per head I'd rather eat somewhere else.
The bartender Nate is phenomenal! He is whipping up crazy cocktails with ghost peppers, egg white foam, and all kinds of fun ingredients. They are really unique and very well done. The food is PHENOMENAL! The small plates are so much fun because you can try so many different things on the menu. Our server was great and we were... More
Took my fiance here to celebrate our engagement. We had the chef's tasting menu and each dish was superb. The chef even came out and explain each dish himself! Will come back again.

(And the full bar is lovely too!). Beautifully decorated by the owner's wife, the tables & settings are classy and spaced just right for privacy. We have a fave, though, that... More
Probably the most beautiful restaurant in the valley. Great food and service to compliment. We have been there many times and have always enjoyed the experience.
If you like to find a restaurant to have a glass of wine in the early evening, this is a great place to go. The restaurant is decorated beautifully.
