Outside on the patio or inside in the bar area - there is no better deep fried calamari on the Coast (used to think it was across the street at another restaurant, but no - this is far better) Food is always tasty and the portions are huge (really, share an appetizer and main course - don't have kitchen split...

I don't like the word comfort when describing Flavor's cuisine. I think it's better than that. Portion sizes very generous with attentive advice.

Food was great. Generous portions. Pork chop was big with bone. Steak and also fish tacos were great. 3 people brought our food out at the same time. Very nice. Staff are super friendly. This place would be a five star if they had a few more waiters. We waited 5-10 min just to order our drinks. Once they get... More

My son and I ate at Flavor during the Mavericks competition - unbelievably fabulous experience! The food was delicious, service was impeccable, fun and highly functional decor, and we had a blast watching the surfers. Can't wait for another excuse to hang out seaside.

This restaurant has some wonderful food choices and awesome beer & spirit selections. The daily fish special is always a great choice. And the fresh bread is always a delight.

Flavor is a fun place in the Pillar Point Harbor to go to for "Caifornia Comfort Food". They have a great selection of sandwiches, salads, mac and cheese (with a lovely choice of additions) and great entrees for dinner. The specials are always yummy, my favorite is the short ribs and polenta - so good. Comfort is the best way... More

We had eaten at Flavors before they moved. Decided to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were very disappointed. Service was stellar but food was just short of being extremely bad. Tasteless with lots of fillers. Seafood pot pie full of potatoes, lacking salt. All in sea food chowder also full of potatoes and bland. Husband had pork ragu and he... More

Book a window table, got view of the lagoon and harbour. Think this is the nicest part of the restaurant to sit in. Drop in works for window table off season. We followed recommendation and my wife had seafood Jambalaya and I Chicken Pot Pie. If you are a normal European you don't need apetizer or dessert. The portions are... More

We believe that reasonably priced "American Comfort Food" is a rapidly disappearing culinary cuisine in the Bay Area. We decided that we would not let that vanish. Providing a fine balance of basic tasty foods and exquisite culinary delights where comfort and creativity collide, we proudly present El Granada with our latest venture- Flavor. What is California Comfort Food? Simply put, it is an attempt to take some of the classic and not so classic comfort dishes and have our wonderful chefs add some sort of twist to them. We will always try to provide the freshest ingredients and attempt to use local and organic ingredients when possible. Devin / Francisco
