Awesome food from a local chef

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

Awesome food...very unique...and great service. This place is rather small but cozy. You should make reservations. The chef is the best. And the wine list is premium. You get what you pay for. It is our favorite restaurant in Yorba Linda...by far!

My husband and I are in town for a wedding and decided after reading the reviews to have lunch here. We started with the fried calamari which was tender, abundant and flavorful. I had the salmon and calamari risotto and my husband had a pasta and meat dish. Both excellent! We had a tasty lemon tart for dessert. I would... More

Have been eating here for years. The chef creates very nice specials and they have great flavor. The other night we had the duck with quail and home made pasta. Just beautiful. Created to perfection. Spices and flavors blended very well. I wish the chef had kept the escargots on the menu. My kids absolutely loved it and so did... More
