Great restaurant and service. Our server, Ruby was excellent and gave us great recommendations. We enjoyed the offerings in their wine flight. I made reservations and was glad I did because even though it was mid week they got extremely busy.

Enjoy your meal on their outdoor patio with a beautiful view of the vineyard and mountains in the distance. The food was fantastic. Three of us split a bottle of their wine with our meal and it was perfect!

Very professional staff for a very busy venue. They handle everyone in a timely and orderly fashion. The food and wine are excellent and so is the atmosphere for an afternoon luncheon.
