What is not to love? The ambience of the courtyard, the delicious wines, the fabulous food, the lovely staff, etc, etc. I have never had a bad meal or a poor glass of wine here. In my opinion, this is the only place for lunch in Carmel Valley. I make a point of having lunch here every time I visit the area (along with some of the great tasting rooms down the street). Stop in for wine and appetizers or lunch - you won't be disappointed!
