Located at the Vintner's Inn - very good hotel for wine tourists. The restaurant is really buzzing at happy hour but then quietens down and turns into a very decent, but slightly old-fashioned/quaint restaurant. The service is excellent and attentive, the food is varied and...More

Overall the place is appealing and the service was certainly quite good but somehow the place is somewhat of a letdown. The letdown comes with the food, overall the food is just not worth the cost.

This is an excellent restaurant. The location is perfect for fine dining before a show at the Luther Burbank Theatre. The food was great, prepared impeccably, and the service spot on. Loved the bar and wine list.

First of all, loved that the Gluten Free options were clearly marked on the menu. We started with the fresh oysters for my HH and I had the Truffled Potato Leek Soup with added Bacon. Both starters were very good. For entrees we enjoyed the...More
