Food Outstanding - Menu limited

We stopped here for lunch at the recommendation of a friend. We walked here on a hot summer day. It is not air conditioned. It was an issue at first, but after sitting for awhile we didn't really notice the heat as they had fans running and the windows open. It is a nice space with a store in... read more

Dined here for a lite lunch with friends. The menu was delightfully varied and the offerings thoroughly enjoyed. Presentation was excellent. The tuna sausage was unique. It was a little drier than anticipated, but the taste was light and the fish flavor not overpowered by seasonings.

If you're going to spend real money for a nice dinner, wouldn't you expect the restaurant to at least have air conditioning? Tried to go there for dinner last night. We were really excited and we had our hotel make a reservation for us. It was 9 at night and it was still in the low-80s outside. We walked into... More

I've been here about three times now and each time I've ordered something different, and each time it's been amazingly creative and delicious. They offer seasonal ingredients and dishes. I love the ambiance of the place which is a restaurant within a community of other businesses which work and fit well together. The restaurant itself is very open with an... More

Sitka and Spruce is a quaint restaurant that serves excellent local ingredients on a rotating menu. My partner had the brined and roasted chicken with fresh peas and long beans. Her quote " best chicken she has ever had". Excellent wine selection and fresh fish. Sit at the "long table" which adjoins the chefs preparation area for and extra special... More

We came here from a recommendation from a friend. It was a challenge finding parking--but it was worth the walk. We did not have a reservation. But we were able to be quickly seated. The menu changes daily. The food we ate was delicious. I could have licked my plate had I not cared about my manners. There was only... More

We almost couldn't find the place as it is hidden in the back end of a huge space that hosts other food venues including a bar. But once there you understand how unique this restaurant is. This is a farm to table place so the menu changes accordingly. The asparagus in cream sauce, mushroom mureille bruschetta with poached egg, the... More

Last night I hosted a business dinner in the private dining area of S&S for 8 very discerning colleagues. Firstly I cannot reiterate quite how well received the food was. From the sourdough and cream cheese served on our arrival, the antipasti course, fresh and mouthwatering salads drenched in a tangy tarragon dressing, asparagus served two ways, the house speciality...
