Been there and keep going back. Atmosphere is top shelf yet inviting. Service awesome. House specials and standard menu are sure to excite your taste buds. A real culinary experience. They have an extensive selection of wines and some of the best port available. Definitely not inexpensive, but well worth the price. We took some friends there last weekend and... More

We had a perfect good bye dinner at this restaurant. Service is just perfect. Our server was specially thoughtful. Manager also very interested and helpful. Atmosphere is great and everyone seemed to enjoy working there. A piece of advice: don't abuse the use of marinara sauce. Your dishes taste good enough. No need to hide great cooking behind marinara.

Stopped by for snack/early dinner...Had some fabulous mussels and an outstanding burger and fries! Loved the food, the ambience and location were also great, and before we left the place was full! Nice experience overall!

We visited this restaurant to celebrate an anniversary and it was wonderful. My husband had the pork burger (which I will be ordering next time) and I had the sausage pasta. We had a great time with a bottle of wine and a full, delicious meal. Definitely worth a visit!

I arrived in shorts and a t-shirt with my party. The host at the door did not seem amused by my presence, but we were seated without issue. The table we had was quite warm. Not sure why it was so warm in the back of the restaurant, but it wasn't a major problem. Our sever was very friendly and... More

This is a local restaurant with great food and great atmosphere. The owner, Larry Delgado, has really developed a great menu which allows residents of the valley to enjoy dishes not offered at your typical chain restaurant. The rib eye with blue cheese sauce is to die for !!. Is place to come and have a great time with a... More
