The Depot has been our favorite restaurant for 25 years. The food was always fabulous and the service perfect. We returned to Visalia and had dinner there. We were very disappointed in the menu changes. Although the chef agreed to make my favorite scampi, it...More

Beautiful restored building and attentive staff. Similar menu to It's flagship restaurant Vintage Press but not prepared as well and simpler sides. Sea bass was overcooked. Pork chops nicely done. Great deserts and wine. Worth another visit.
