Folks that go out without looking at the price will like it. They are very busy so I'd make a reservation if they allow it.

Thank you for trying us. We source our ingredients local and organic its so important to us to support our local economy. Grass Valley is working so hard to keep out big corporations and to keep up with the rise in wages, taxes, fees the list goes on. We do except reservations and we pay our employees more than minumum... More

This is a favorite place to take our out of town guests. The eclectic decor is fun. We love the grilled vegetables and the signature dishes. Diane and Shelly are always welcoming and attentive.

We waited a half an hour for water. There were many flies around the table (We ate at an outside table). The server forgot to bring our soup and salad. The steak was overcooked.

Melissa Im so sorry for your experience I would like to know the day you were here so i can address the problem. I hope you did say something to the server and they attempted to make it right. It is so important to us to hear all sides so we can fix any problems. We wash the patio everyday... More

There on a Sunday afternoon. Cozy atmosphere. Seating available in and out. Our server was terrific. The food is "Chilean inspired". It was all unbelievably good. We ended up doing family style so we could try everything and well worth it. Definitely a place to go again.

I have never had a bad meal here. The service level varies, but never disappoints. Servings are generous and their chimichurri is out of this world. Other favorites are salads, antichucho, soups, calimarri, relleno, and taco night!

My husband I were in Grass Valley in November and had never been before. We had such a wonderful trip and were very fortunate to hear about Diegos from the owners of the place we rented. The food was tasty and even had vegetarian to meet my needs! We had dinner and it was a perfect place to go after... More

Just had lunch at Diegos. Lunch crowd was heavy but the staff handled it well. No serious delay in ordering or receiving food. The Churasco sandwich had more than enough tri-tip steak. The sweet potato fries were perfect. The Tres-Leches for desert topped it off. The Sunshine Lemonade is a must on a hot day.

Since 2002, Diegos has connected cultures and community through an escape into the Latin flavors of the Lower Americas, where our recipes are prepared daily in their traditional style. From the warm, house-made bread rolls and fresh crepes to our decadent desserts and fantastico weekend specials, we consciously source natural ingredients that are friendly to the environment. This includes free-range, grass fed, sustainably raised proteins and local organic produce. By operating with love, gratitude and a professional personal touch, we enjoy providing a colorful, comfortable setting where our guests are able to create and share memorable experiences together.
