Ambiance is excellent. You can sit outside by a fire pit and eat dinner or have a drink. Inside is casualy elegant. Food is superb. Great small plates. Lots of good vegetable sides and appetizers. I have been there at least 15 times.

Usual good food, good service. The wait person did not come to our table for >20 mins but service was good after that. There were multiple wait staff that helped us, one particular waitress seemed short and curt, but others were good and attentive.

Having never been to Pebble Beach we were excited to eat there even though we figured it would be a bit touristy and pricey. To our surprise it was neither. The ambiance was fantastic, even though no comparison to the view and beautiful weather. We...More
