We went to this Michael Mina restaurant on the recommendation of a couple of foodie friends (confirmed by hotel concierge) so had high expectations. We were not disappointed. There was a regular restaurant or wine bar area, where you could have food. The dishes were really interesting and varied - with small dishes and regular main ones - that you... More

The restaurant is a top 5 regarding wines that I had ever been. The food menu is ok, and the food is really good. I'd recommend for a group of friends.

We came here to meet a friend who worked close by after work to say hi before our trip came to an end. The bar area and restaurant itself are really nice and classy but the food and service do not match it. It is expensive, even during happy hour, and the wait staff is not helpful with wine selections... More

On our food and wine tour of California RN 74 was definitely on the list. We had three lunch spots and three dinner spots picked out every day. The idea is to have five or six items we all can split and taste the essence of the restaurant and the region of the country the restaurant focuses on. The restaurant... More

An earlier reviewer nailed it: mediocre at best. Truly overrated and overpriced. I'll start with the good stuff, though. We found the host and assistant seating us were fine. And we did like one dish: the mussels with frites, which is big enough to constitute a full meal for one person. But beyond that, we were underwhelmed. Boring, semi-tasteless octopus... More

Four of us went to this place just to find out if the escargot were equal to what we had in France. I was dubious but discovered I didn't have to cross the Atlantic to get good escargot. But the bonus was to discover the Crispy Duck Wings listed under "Table" on the menu. Generous portions well prepared. The problem... More

Loved how nice everyone was, the chef Mike Mina came to each table, would take photos with guests. The wine was excellent, food perfect! Great suggestions from Sommelier on the wine. Loved the dessert!

A fellow trip advisor reviewer said it best: the average review is accurate for this place. Food was very good, but both food and wine are way overpriced for what you get. Nice decor/environment, but service is lacking. It took 10-15 min before anyone came to ask us for our drink/appetizer order, another 20 min to get salads and our... More

Yes, there are some uneven reviews; but, we had a great evening! Excellent bar god who knew his cocktails and wine.. We moved to a table and had an excellent dinner that started with us sharing four very good appetizers.. Pate, roasted beet salad.. Service at times was attentive, but, sometimes absent.. Ah, dinner, sweet breads, snapper, steak. These were... More

Had dinner on a Saturday. Waitress was lovely. Cork in one of our wine glasses. A fly caused us to not be able to finish our cheese platter and we were surprised that we were not offered a dessert or replacement for the food we couldn't eat. I had the salmon tartare - was ok. Tuna Niçoise salad was good.... More
