Lunch was delicious. Service was awesome. Tried a new sandwich and I was pleasantly surprised. I have ate here multiple times and never been disappointed.

It's one of those places that you'd like to transport to your own neighborhood and share with everyone you know! The service was great and they were eager to accommodate all of us. The food was exceptional! Kudos :-)

Went to the Independent for the 1st time a couple weekends ago. Sat at bar while waiting for a table and had a glass of wine and tasted a Black Rose the bartender was making. Very yummy on both counts! Had dinner on the patio. Loved the ambiance of the patio and even want to recreate one at home. The... More

We save this place for special occasions. Meals are consistently good. The truffle mac 'n cheese is to die for!

Don't miss the menu of unique adult beverages made by a qualified mixologist! If the weather's good, sit out on the NON-SMOKING patio. The beer-battered french fries with the three dipping sauces (Homemade BBQ, Chipotle, and Bleu Cheese) are a great appetizer, the salads are wonderful, and the steaks never disappoint! The bread pudding desert was pretty good, but I... More

This is a restaurant with a full service bar with a great vibe and lots of locals. Basil Martinis are refreshing and its fun to watch the bartender them. They slap the basil leaf to release the flavor. I recommend no more than 2 or they will slap you back later.

This is a nice restaurant with phenomenal service. The food is good, but I made the mistake of ordering Vegetable Romesco, their vegetarian option. It tasted all right, but wasn’t nearly enough food to be a meal. Perhaps they think vegetarians are all on starvation diets.

This was a great find on the way home through Placerville. Near the highway. Greeted friendly and seated promptly from the young women. Menus were provided and drink orders taken shortly. Water was initially requested. Water was crisp and refreshing. Simple menu with various items for the group I was with. We elect to order a few Tom Collins with... More
