Our party enjoyed lobster, tuna tartar, beef tenderloin and the best of their wine and champagne menu. All were delicious and extremely well prepared. Nothing disappointed! Definitely recommend you sit at a table at the bar for the best people watching!

Restaurant was recommended by guests we meet at the San Ysidro Ranch, Stonehouse Restaurant. They said it was a must do while we were up there on vacation. Took their advice and enjoyed our experience very much. Fun atmosphere, food is great and service wonderful.

Great restaurant with a lovely authentic atmosphere. The food was awesome, I had the mussels followed by a filet Mignon which I couldn't fault. The sides were delicious too but BIG. One between two is ample. Service was better than average, could have been a little better, they were probably a little distracted by the 2 A listers sitting on... More

We tried a selection of courses - and all were amazing. The service was outstanding. And we stayed next door at The Montecito Inn!

We dined at this restaurant as it was highly recommend by a friend in NY. After carefully explaining to the waitress that I have a severe garlic allergy, she brought me a salad with croutons with garlic in them! My Filet Mignon was bland and chewy. It did not taste like a superior piece of meat. My husband's rib eye,... More

Delicious food and service. One of the best steaks that I have ever had. Soufflé for dessert amazing. Onion rings are melt in your mouth bits of amazing flavor. Complementary valet parking. Will certainly return.

Overpriced, crowded but I don't understand why?Maybe because there is no other bar or night spot in the area. It is noisy, affected, and the chef knows how to ruin a steak.

We were part of a party of 12 and were seated on the patio at tables of four. We had fabulous service, wonderful food and great wine. Those of us having steak were so happy that they were perfectly cooked. This is a favorite place of my brother's and I see why. Weather was perfect for outdoor dining and the... More
