The menu is excellent. This place is known for its prime rib. They do it very well. The rest of the menu is excellent. They now added a wood burning pizza oven. Big salads, big portions, and a great bar.

A friend recommended that we meet for a business lunch here because it was convenient and great parking. That is all true, and the food is amazingly good, best artichokes and Brussels sprouts! Amazing trout and deserts. Nice atmosphere, easy to hear each other and very professional service.

I was here for lunch with a group of 8 friends. We had reservations but likely would not have needed them. However, there are few very large tables available and they can be very busy during lunch with all of the nearby office buildings and many people to serve at lunch. Nearly half of us had the Redwood salad. It... More

Food was excellent, especially the roasted chicken and prime rib sandwich. Good noise level as we had a newborn with us. Waitress was excellent and we were not rushed. Good restaurant for any occasion.

My wife and I had dinner here recently and it was very good. We like their salads, my wife has the 'house' salad and I have either the Caesar or the wedge, this time I had the wedge.... we enjoyed both - each large enough to bring some home. For dinner my wife had the French Dip - one of... More

Had heard about this place from several friends so I thought that I would give it a try. I was not disappointed, the calamari appetizer and the Riesling was a great way to start my meal. The server Owen was very knowledgeable and his recommendations of the entrée convinced me to order the Cajun seasoned Trout served with Roasted Asparagus... More

My family and I used to dine here for dinner frequently. The normal experience turned out to be mediocre food at high prices and an average service experience. We make the decision to stop returning but my wife and I found ourselves there today without kids. Lunch for two- $75. Grilled artichokes which were fantastic. Fried cod sandwich which was... More
