Went for a business dinner...great atmosphere, quaint and artsy. It was restaurant week, so that was the only menu available...but it was good. Nice place for a nice meal. Farm food done in a beautiful way.

Had dinner on our way up the coast. The restaurant is upscale for the area, and pricey. My wife had the steak which had grizzle which should have been cut out before serving. I had the halibut which was good. We both thought the server made too big a deal about the food and ingrediants, I guess trying to justify... More

My girlfriend and I had an enjoyable dinner here the other night. We were the first customers of the evening and got plenty of attention from our knowledgable and friendly server. The Other Place is Luke (the owner's) "Other Place" as he owns a sandwich shop on the Arcata Plaza. This dinner house is nicely appointed and quiet which set... More

We checked Tripadvisor when we couldn't get a different place (closed). I decided to treat my wife and ignore my budget. Overall, my wife was quite pleased, my budget wasn't! Presentation of the meals was superb, portions were wanting for the price. Taste and combination of flavored was excellent. Breads were artisan and fresh. The salads were fresh and organic,... More

This is a great little place with very friendly wait-staff and outstanding food! We enjoyed the eclectic decor and relaxed atmosphere. They use only local, organic ingredients wonderfully prepared. Our server was excellent. We live locally and determined this is someplace we will rerun to.

My girlfriend took me to The Other Place for a birthday dinner tonight. I took 2 steps out the door and could not wait to write my first ever restaurant review! I'm a chef and have tasted many fantastic meals, but the food, service and atmosphere this evening left me absolutely stunned and amazed. The atmosphere was a fun and... More

From the moment I arrived, I was delighted. The atmosphere is like no other, elegance combined with welcoming comfort. The service outstanding, thoughtful, and friendly. The food! The food, I will never forget. Each item unique. Perfect balances of flavors that repeatedly complement each other. It is a place of true love and passion for what they do... I'm just... More

The atmosphere and wait staff are very inviting. The menu is sourced with local produce, meats, and fish. Friendly and knowledgeable staff made exploring rhe interesting menu choices fun. Wonderful presentation and layered taste treats. The lamb, salmon, and pork were excellent

In this little town a French Culinary Institute trained chef has brought big city dinning to a small college town. Dinner for 2 with wine, $172.00. Worth every penny. Here is excellent preparation and presentation. A great resource for the chef is the exceptional fresh vegetables locally grown. Do not miss this spot.
