My wife and I eat there about 8 times per year, twice in the last two weeks. It's our favorite fine dining restaurant in Mammoth since Skadi closed. I don't understand why more good restaurants don't offer half glasses of wine. We normally each order 3 half-glasses and have the staff pick depending on our dinner choices. They've been spot on every time and I know a little about wine having worked at a winery in Calistoga and attending monthly wine tastings with friends.
The menu isn't huge, but has a wide variety of choices, along with a few daily specials. There's always something really good. The duck appetizer and the gazpacho were particularly tasty recently. The scallops are always excellent. The swordfish special was very good last week. Kudos to the new pastry chef, the gateau was very tasty. Many of the staff have been there a long time, which is always a good sign.
