This is likely more of a fine dining establishment, but our group of 60 people was efficiently served during the covid period, even if clearly newer wait staff needed a little help. Food was good. Our group will be back!

One of the best restaurants in Northern California. The service, Morris, was incredible, the mixed drinks well prepared and the mussel appetizer and the duck were so delicious! Would definitely return when in the area!

Visited with my wife and had Chicken Cacciatori. I have not had it in years. The chicken was tender and moist bone in thigh and leg. It was served on a bed of cream polenta that was to die for. The dish just really came...together on a cool early spring day. The wine list is very good with mainly wines from west Sonoma. With outdoor dinning still the law it was a place that delivers during these crazy times.More

Not gluten-free friendly as advertised. They are not even trying. A burger with no bun is not gluten-free friendly. Not serving brunch at all. Sat at a table for 10 minutes with no service at all.More

Hi MamaSita, I know this answer is very late, but I want to apologize for your experience in early December. With the COVID related circumstances over the last Winter, we had to adjust our menu constantly - we were forced to close for periods of...More

This was our third time eating here and I regret that I haven't reviewed before now. This is because this visit had missteps. ..where previous visits did not. While the food was good, neither mine nor my husband's was hot. I asked for sauce on...the side and the request was ignored. Water was never offered to be refilled. During this trying time I'm grateful to be dining out, but left with such a negative impression. The setting is delightful-lovely trees and plants with lights. While many have set up tables in a parking lot sitting outside here is a delight. We'll be back, but hope service matches the surroundings next time.More

Presentation was great, food was tasty. Service was slow and it was not crowded. Waited for our food for over 30 minutes without bread or anything else. Short rib had excessive fat. Curry was nice. Sole was dry definitely needed the sauce which was nice....Risotto had nice flavors but small portion for price. All was pricey which I don’t mind if you have good service and when all the food is on point and decent portions. These were all tasty but overpriced considering the whole dinning experience.More

Had an outstanding meal last night. Everything was perfect: not only food and service, but the music too. We sat on the patio since it was such a glorious day. When the evening chill set in eventually, the propane heaters kept us nice and toasty....We had the charcuterie plate, Petrale Sole and Duck Confit. Everything was amazing, especially the duck. The rum cake totally hit the spot too.More

Here’s to Chef Bob and his incredible comfort food Monday night specials. Last night he made a Short Rib and Fontina Cheese sandwich on the most incredible fresh bread. And the spicy tomato soup was like nothing I’ve ever tasted. I don’t really like tomato...soup and this was so yummy!! Thick, a little spicy so rich in flavors. I seriously almost ordered it again- yes, another whole order!! Instead I had three people around me order it and one of them gave me a few bites. LolMore

Great food. The best short ribs ever. Very meaty. My husband and I shared this and there was plenty. Good wine list

Had a wonderful and very delicious meal. Highly recommend the Brussel Sprout, amazing. The atmosphere was nice. They have a beautiful patio and I’ll for sure be going back when the weather allows. Service was great and helpful with recommendations.
