Living in Yorba Linda for 2 years now, can't believe we hadn't gone before. The food was excellent as was the service. Just around the corner from us, we'll surely be back!

Long time Yorba Linda choice for quiet, excellent and more intimate dinner. Small number of tables so make your reservation. Menu changes frequently based on best food items available. This is popular with home town residents.

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 side, but the uniqueness, quality and flavor... More

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.
