Lunch, and dinner were excellent! we spent 2 nights in Los Olivos, and we ate 3 of our meals there. I couldn't get enough of their delicious wine, and olives..the salad Nicoise was to die for. We stayed at the Bernat Vineyard cottage, which is located on the owners wine estate, which was so beautiful and serene..I never knew I... More

Stopped in without reservation for lunch, 7 of us. Ordered a smorgasbord of food to share (pizzas, cheeseboard, salads, soup - all great). We ate until full. This was referred to us by a tasting room local. Easy parking. Right downtown. Large wine selection to purchase as well.

We stopped for lunch while wine tasting and I ordered the smoked trout salad. First time I've ever ordered this and it was the perfect lunch. Definitely with visiting!

We arrived at this lovely spot after spending almost 6 hours stuck in traffic. Needless to say we were somewhat stressed. We were seated at a cozy table next to the fireplace and greeted by an exceedingly helpful and knowedgeable server. Our stress vanished almost immediately as we sipped a delicious Santa Rita Hills pinot recommended by our server. Our... More

We were so happy to come upon this restaurant on a recent drive from Santa Barbara to Paso Robles. It was in such a lovely setting, the ambience was delightful and the service was excellent. I wish we could go again and taste the dinner or lunch menu as I have read the reviews and they sound amazing. We just... More

Great food, large portions, unique preparations, nicely presented by friendly and efficient wait staff, all in a beautiful setting. We went out of our way to go to this restaurant because of previous experiences here had been so memorable. The most striking thing here is the 50 page wine last, with all of the offerings also available in the market... More

Very friendly nice restaurant. We just had dinner there last night for my birthday celebration. The restaurant is beautiful. The food was amazing. Our party of seven had a great time. The salmon chowder was fantastic. The wine list has low to high priced selections. The dessert Scream was a great way to end the meal. The endless bottles of... More

We stumbled upon this little gem on our weekend get away to Santa Barbara. It was a 35 minute drive from SB through beautiful scenery... a fun drive with a pleasant ending. We order wine flights and the Artisan Cheese Plate since we were planning another adventure for later. The location is beautiful. There is a romantic, outdoor patio and... More
