We've eaten hear on numerous occasions and have never had a meal that was less than excellent. Service is great, too. Holiday prix fixe meals are a special treat and, although the restaurant can be crowded, you never feel pressed by the crowd and there is never a slack in the attentive service.

I visited on a Monday night for dinner. It has been a while since my last visit. I was seated and greeted promptly. I don't remember seeing the octopus on the appetizer menu in previous visits so I tried that. It was excellent. They have a limited menu of options without mashed potatoes so I opted for the halibut special... More

I showed up for an early dinner after traveling from the east coast. I was offered the early bird special which I was on the verge of getting because you have salad and dessert included for somewhere around $20 which was great (and discounted drinks!). I opted for the stuffed chicken breast and it was AMAZING! I couldn't stop eating,... More

We waited almost an hour to receive our entrees, which tasted very good but not excellent. The waitperson did not seem sufficiently attentive to keep us informed of the progress, but the other wait staff seemed very nice and attentive (serving water, etc.)

We wanted to thank my sister and her boyfriend for watching our dogs while we were away on vacation. So this is the perfect restaurant. We went about 4:40 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon and started in the bar for their 50% off Happy Hour. We had two hors d' oeuvres: Bake Brie in Phyllo dough and the coconut shrimp... More

Came on a weeknight during a business trip. Was seated quickly, and the service was prompt. The spinach salad was probably the best I've ever had (the mix was exactly what I like), and I had the salmon for my entrée, which was also very good. Overall, there's no complaints I can make and would definitely return.

Very quiet setting and great place to relax and enjoy with your love one. Food was great and great selection of Food and Wine. The service is great and the people are very friendly. I will definitely go back. Make sure to try the Lamb shank.

We simply call it Sunny California Cuisine; "from farm to table" our food is the freshest, seasonal ingredients found right here locally in California supplied by our community of artisans, farmers and purveyors. The food is simple, yet very flavorful allowing the ingredients to take center stage featuring the real Mesquite Grill. However, for lunch, we have a creative traditional menu with many choices from our seasonal offerings in salads, pasta, superb sandwiches and entrees! The diverse and carefully selected 150+ wine list, as well as, 20+ wines by the glass is sure to provide the perfect complement to your meal by the bottle or by the glass. The ambiance of the restaurant, as well as, the banquet room, complements the cuisine and service with just the right combination of sophistication and old-world charm, whether it is the party of two or two hundred, you will be taken care of.
