Always Something Special Here....

This is a great place to go to get something special and off the beaten path. The owner/chef is usually cooking something unique that is always a treat. Also, homemade desserts and icecream. Gets busy on Friday and Saturday nights, so reservations are a good idea. Prices are a little on the high... read more

Hi Great restaurant in Yorba Linda. Chef's tasting menu is awesome. Ambiance / lighting is perfect. Food choice is really good. Service is friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

This small spot has a great local reputation and tends to be consistently good. Not much atmosphere as it's hidden in the back of a strip mall with a very limited number of tables.

Great food.. Located in a shopping center with convenient parking. Small restaurant but excellent food personally prepared by the owner/chef.

I was looking for somewhere for lunch. I saw this place and decided to try it. I had the most delightful lunch. The waiter brought warm artichoke dip with bread. It was really nice.

An interesting menu with attention to details,ingredients, and presentation. Good quality food but inconsistent in taste. Owner is experienced chef, but servers all young kids and, many times, in attentive. Small location in strip center. Not many choices in YL for a nice, special dinner, so this is a good option.

Awesome dinner made just for us! With each course I kept thinking I'm not gonna like this based on description. But I was dead wrong every time. I ate a meal I would never order and was over the moon at how good it was. You want a top chef dinner. Here it is. Should be on everyone's Bucket List.

I took a friend to celebrate with dinner at a new restaurant that had good reviews. She enjoyed her buttermilk batter fried chicken dinner and took home the leftovers. I ordered the "special" pistachio encrusted halibut filet and was disappointed. While the flavors of pistachio crust and sauce were good, the halibut was mushy as though it had been prepared...

You have to plan to eat here. It is very small and seating is extremely limited. You MUST make a reservation. You WILL be glad you did. Every single dish we have had is special and memorable right down to the salads. The dishes are prepared by a Chef who obviously knows the business of fine dining. This is a... More
