This is a lovely compact restaurant in the old "Patrick's" space. They serve great, innovative food and local wines, and there is really nice (but limited) outdoor seating. If you are by yourself there is a nice bar you can dine at.

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.

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.

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.
