This is my #1 favorite restaurant in the bay area, all things considered. Of course you can go fancier for couples/romantic but if you need a place that satisfies both the adults' need to eat excellent food artfully prepared, while simultaneously feeding older children (not for babies!), then this is the place for you. Half Moon Bay is a fabulous excursion (don't forget to see the old-timey jailhouse) and the murals painted on the buildings. But DO eat here. Lunch offers paninis that are baked while you wait. The salads are superior; the soups are GENUINELY house-made from scratch. The environment is elegant but not fussy. When I lived here, I travelled over the mountain to eat here at least weekly. After moving to SoCal, this moved to top of my list for dining with old friends and family. Absolutely A+++
