“Great little spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

It was late we were kind of hungry but not for anything too formal. This little place did the trick...a lovely charcuterie plate with a bottle of wine. The waitress was very friendly and suggested we might like to add the melon plate to compliment our choice...without being pushy. We did and it was a great recommendation. Wine waiter was very helpful helping us choose from an unfamiliar list on our first night in California. Highly recommend.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Pizza would probably be great here with the awesome wood fired oven in the middle of the place but we've only had breakfast here. It's also cooked in the wood fire oven. Couldn't be better! Fresh and delicious everytime. We like to sit where we can see the food prepped + slid into the oven. We also buy fresh bread to bring home.

“Service, Eh - Pizza, Delish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Hubby and I visited La Bicyclette while on a trip for our 10th anniversary trip. I researched and the restaurant received excellent reviews. So, I was excited the see the cute spot and eat the yummy pizza I had heard so much about. I made a reservation and once there, we were promptly seated. Unfortunately we waited a good 8 mins before anyone ever showed up for beverage orders. We had just gone to a wine tasting so all we wanted was water which is what we ordered when someone finally showed. They promptly brought the water and we waited another 10 minutes before they took our order. So, we were there close to 20 minutes before every putting in our meal order. Still, we ordered Pepperoni and Margherita pizzas along with a side salad. The salad and pizza did not disappoint and were quite delicious. I am glad we stopped by at least for the experience but they should probably work on the service.
