The tri tip salad was amazing. The fresh greens were the perfect compliment to the tender beef. The portions were generous and the flavors outstanding.

It's one of the few order-at-the-counter choices that has never disappointed me. They are flexible with changes, (pick a different bread, etc). Help is friendly. Clean facilities. Outdoor patio.

Everything was so fresh, and delicious! We... More

This is a really well done local fresh bistro concept that was a jewel of a find! We actually stumbled into it because it was right around the corner from our Hotel, but it was EXCELLENT. This was a family vacation and everyone loved the dynamic menu with locally sourced, exciting options. Service was good and ambiance was sophisticated and... More

I have dined at Tin Leaf many times. I really like that the food is prepared in a healthy way with many of the items being organic. They seem to be very conscious of what they are serving and make a huge effort to only serve the best. My kids also like the food which makes it a great option... More
