you have no idea what you are in for as you pull up. i can only say " rustic" the food is amazing and cooked to perfection. both the steaks and the fish. make a reservation, dont just think you can walk in, its a very small place. but you will NOT be disappointed.

This quirky restaurant was a great choice for an evening of fun with friends in a very different atmosphere. We had a reservation for 8:30 on a Thursday so we started at the winery next door - another great find! Charming menu and our meal was wonderful! The beer selection was small but good. I will definitely be returning to this quant little spot in the mountains!

This restaurant is located in an old rustic building in the Santa Monica Hills. It is small and very crowded. The brunch is hearty and tasty - frittatas come in a very hot small cast iron skillet and are large enough for two. Mine was the potatoes on the bottom, with dried tomatoes, pine nuts and goat cheese, quite tasty. Unfortunately, there is no plate for the toast. Service was accommodating and friendly.
A reservation is a must.

We arrived without a reservation (tip - make a reservation!!), and were greeted by a young man who told us tables wouldn't be available for hours but a spot at the bar would be ready in 40 minutes. He suggested we could have a drink at the winery next door whilst we waited and he would come get us.
True to his word, within 30 minutes he had us seated at the bar.
the place was cram packed, but bar/wait staff were friendly and efficient, we had bread on the table quick smart and meals were served quite quickly.
I ordered the rib eye and the meal was huge, steak well cooked, massive baked potato with garlic butter, sour cream, bacon and chives. Absolutely delicious. Only downer was the side salad was a bit too heavily dressed in balsamic for my taste.
Loved the warm and friendly atmosphere, a great little accoustic band wandering around all night - all in all, highly recommend.

We started with a cinnamon bunn (ask for less sugar on top - WAY too much) but delicious for $8.00. I had green tea for $3.00 and my hubby coffee same price $3.00. Moved on to the goat cheese, spinach and sun-dried tomato frittata (served with two slices of sour dough toast) for $11.00 and the sour dough French toast (four slices) with browned-caramelized pecans for $11.00.

We could not finish our food - you have to be a hearty eater!

There was also a very nice man playing guitar playing Simon and Garfunkel, Billy Joel, etc. When he is not playing the music overhead is Talking Heads, Cars...

Next door is a cute Winery, gift shop.
