We had dinner at Back wine bar last night with our family and another. We had reservations for 8 and had a separate little room. Service was wonderful and although this is a wine bar/restaurant they were great with special orders for the kids. I had the tuna which was deliciously seasoned and served over coconut curry rice. Yum! My... More

We went on a Thursday night which featured a pre-fixe menu, but you could also order off of the regular menu. We had not been there for a few years, so were very impressed with the expansion and decor. The food was very good and the rating would be higher except for our server. I'm sure they are not all...

This is a great place. Great food, great services and a good bar/wine list. This is a small family run place so every once in a while something will miss but overall this is our go to place. We usually stick with small plates and do 2 or 3 per person. It is one of the best in the area... More

I took a client here for dinner tonight and it was fantastic. The wine selection is plentiful with over 30 wines by the glass. Many wines are boutique wines from California and all are high quality. The food is so fresh and very well prepared. I had the heirloom tomato salad and the short ribs. Both were excellent. Our server,... More

Friends asked us to the Heirloom Tomato themed prix fixe dinner at Back this past week. A different prix fixe menu is offered each Tuesday. Dinner is only $25, and an additional $10 for the wine pairings. Fantastic deal! Although longtime residents of the area, we had never been in. We were almost shocked to find this lovely, little restaurant... More

I had a great meal and excellent service. The salad was crisp and flavorful, tasty appetizers, lamb main course was cooked to perfection. The small dining room is great for conversation. Service attentive without being too much. Good prices for very good food.

This is not one of those big "fancy" restaurants but it has the type of food & service you would expect and a fine French 1 star Michelin establishment. The wine list is extensive and priced very reasonably. There are recommended pairings of wines with each course and with their 1/2 glass options it is possible to sample a number... More
