Great dinner restaurant! Pasta carbonara was delicious. Salads were great and the fried chicken was finger licking good! ;) Good clean restaurant in the center of town...after a day of wine tasting.

“Great for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

My husband and I drove up early from Orange County and came here for breakfast. The quality of the food was very good but a little pricey for breakfast.

“Our favorite place in Los Olivos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place for breakfast and lunch, with high quality food and friendly service. We were lucky that we didn't have much of a wait, as they don't take reservations except for dinner and are always packed on the weekends. We had two small children and they had high chairs and crayons to keep them occupied. We have been to Sides several times although we haven't yet tried it for dinner, and are never disappointed. The bloody Mary's, huevos rancheros and fries are standouts.

“BORING”

depressed setting. depressed employees. depressed flavors. this is the "local" go-to if you wish to fill yer' belly. Time to move on folks. We locals actually deserve better, if if some don't realize they do.

“Absolutely superb.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Since we live in the area we have had breakfast and lunch at Sides many times but this was our first time for dinner. I love that the menu always has locally sourced specials and this night was no different. We started with the heirloom tomato salad which was so good I wish we hadn't split it. I chose the pork chop for my entree and I seriously could drink the Davy Brown Pale Ale aujus. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. Everything is cooked and seasoned to perfection. If you save room be sure to order one of the ice creams that they make. Sides is one of my favorite restaurants and is definitely derserving of all the praise.
