We were in Los Olivos a few months earlier and drove by this place thinking it was a hardware store, and ended up at the "Sideways" Merchant Cafe which I have reviewed earlier. Anyways, I digress. We planned on eating at the Sides this time...More

A group of ate here the night before a wedding. Food was delicious. Prices were moderate. Location was right in Los Olivos which is a very cute town. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner.

When we asked someone in a Los Olivos store for a good lunch restaurant, the immediate response was “Sides”. Sure enough, just like many other reviews, the food was superb. The service was excellent. There is a nice, covered front patio section outside. The back...More

This place has so many great reviews we were excited to go there. Confused about what people think. Very small menu of very mediocre food with fairly indifferent service. I guess just not our cup of tea. But really not!

We had a really excellent meal at Sides. I had the Ahi tacos and they were cooked perfectly rare with a lovely chipotle mayo. The table also had a wonderful, mile-high bacon burger. Delicious and memorable.

We stopped here for Sunday brunch and the food, service and coffee all hit the spot. We appreciated the extra effort the staff made, to ask you if you needed anything and to check on your water or coffee situation. Well done Brothers!
