This small restaurant off the main street in Los Olivos offers full bar and great wines along with thoughtfully prepared food. The hammered pig salad is a real find but you'll not make a mistake with any item because the kitchen is talented and consistent. Outside tables on warm spring days are a real treat.

Sides Hardware and Shoes is a wonderful local restaurant with all the elements in place for a lovely experience. The service is friendly and knowledgeable - the atmosphere is open, historical and cool. The food is good with lots of local sourced food. The fish is always good - but they do love their pork. My favorite is the starters and sides. They make the best brussels sprouts. It is great place for lunch or dinner. They also have mac and cheese handy for any kid who needs a little comfort food. Love the local wine list. It is a wonderful dinning experience that is represents the valley beautifully.

Enjoyed lunch here when we were wine tasting. Great service, the fish tacos were fresh, seared and breaded just right. Delish!

Had a very nice dinner here on my first night in Los Olivos (after reading good reviews here). Food was excellent, and the staff were very efficient. It was extremely crowded, but to their credit our table was ready on time, and they did not rush our meal. The only downside is how small the place is, the tables are very close together and its fairly loud. That said, that would not keep me from going back, its just something to be aware of. If it weren't for that, I'd have given it 5 stars. Definitely worth visiting.

Went on a Friday night in February and it was packed so make REZ.

Everyone reccos this place. Farm to table. Nice atmosphere. Excellent service. Large portions. Fresh.

Quite good but not sure it deserves the level of raves it gets.
