Great service. Fantastic location with loads of charm. Wonderful food. We were there in the afternoon for a late lunch. We were almost the only ones there. I could wander the grounds for hours--the flowers, the architecture, the gardens and courtyards and fountains--oh my!

Spend a moment in time away from the hustle of TV, radio, internet and your cell phone. Call and make a reservation for Sunday brunch or and early evening date night. Prior to your reservation, stroll the property and sit in the many court yards and pause to listen to the fountain. This will place you in the mood for... More

We had reservations for 11:00 AM brunch and it was Father's Day. We get to see my son and Daughter-in-law every few weeks, so we wanted someplace nice. We were a bit concerned when we were sat at a very small table in the bar. Thankfully, we had a waiter that came up to us and immediately said that he... More

On Father's Day, we had set up our Mix Up Lounge to accommodate guests for Brunch as we knew the restaurant would fill up rather quickly. Our Mix Up tables do tend to be a bit smaller but, the atmosphere is in keeping with the rest of the dining room. It sounds as if your server sensed your concern and... More

We told the waiter that we are on Paleo and he and the chef made recommendations. We began with the organic spinach salad minus the goat cheese, hubby had the Glacier 51 Seabass (chilean seabass) minus the rice, and I had the 8 oz filet mignon minus the potatoes. The substitutions were vegetables. For my birthday dessert they brought me... More

This is a new American restaurant. The bread with the pesto sauce was amazing! I got the sea bass which was good but a bit salty. I really like the rack lamb that my husband got. The service was fine. Overall it was a positive experience.

We are glad we could meet your expectations and we are thankful for your patronage. We have shared your comment about the Sea Bass with our Executive Chef and your feedback is appreciated. We do hope to see you in the near future. More

We used the $44 three course option. Everything was amazing. Service was impeccable. One caution though, we were charged an extra $15 per bottle of wine as a corkage fee even though we bought the wine from their wine menu.

We do offer our three-course tasting menu throughout the summer and we would love to see you again before that menu goes away. We are curious about the $15 corkage fee charged to you as this is not our normal practice. We kindly request you to give us a call so that we may help make this right for you.... More
