“great food in a beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2011

We had a couple beers at the bar... it's nice and cozy in there with alot of wood accents. I then had a couple maritni's.. they were pretty good too, but as it turned out they were $13 each.... they weren't THAT good. It was really my only complaint of the whole night.

Soon, all the tables started filling up in the bar, so we glanced in the restaurant area and so no one in there, and it was a little bland compared to the bar as far as atmosphere, so we stayed in the bar.

I had the regular greens salad with blue cheese... very fresh and tasty.

Wife had the squash soup... it was not really like soup as it was very thick, but wow, it was good.

For dinner, the wife had the stuffed trout.. we both agreed it was excellent.

I had the grilled vennison tenderloin... with mashers. It was unreal. I have only had vennison a few times, but this tasted more like steak.. not gamey at all, and the pomegranate sauce was good too, even though it sounds weird.

Everything was also presented very nicely.

It was not cheap, our bill came to $94... but when I get excellent quality food, I don't mind paying that. As I said, the only thing that was a little out of it's league were the $13 dirty martinis.

Service was very good considering the bartender was very busy... and taking orders and waiting tables, making drinks..

Probably would give it 4.5 stars.

Make an effort to stop in this great place off the beaten path on the way back from Hetch Hetchy... or anywhere in the area. You won't be dissapointed.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We ate here as it is really the only option. All the meals were nice and ingredients fresh. The kids especially like the Leaping Lizard mocktails. By US standards it is a little expensive but you are paying for the location.
