The food was ordinary, but overpriced. When you pay $45 - $50 for an entree (even including soup and salad), you expect something special. My wild boar chops were dry and chewy. The service was below par and the server had visibly dirty fingernails. Yuck.

We had a very pleasant dinner here while visiting the area. The ambience was relaxed, the staff were friendly and the food was yummy (halibut for me and pleasant for my husband). The creme caramel was fabulous! We plan to go back and try the bar area and its menu.

I know now why this is my in-laws' (who are lucky enough to be locals) favorite restaurant: bartender/server Lupe and amazing food. We started with Lupe's special basil martini -- which you have to experience to appreciate -- and then enjoyed braised lamb shanks with lentils, and fresh mushroom ravioli ... surrounded by the cozy bar ambiance, the energetic personality of Lupe, and occasions visits by the chef. Five stars!

Okay... When you begin with the Northern Californian coast, then add history to a venue... it doesn't get much better. The architecture is unique and the grounds dramatic. The interior is welcoming a elegant with a wait staff to complement the surroundings.

The menu is filled with innovative choices. There is something for every palate. Each course is art on a plate and a food delightfully bursts in your mouth. Yes, this is a pricey place to dine... and YET... well worth the experience.
