First, the setting for this restaurant is exquisite (except the freeway noise). The hill views are stunning and there is a very "napa" feel to the outdoor space. The restaurant itself is beautifully designed with elegant settings without being overdone and an inviting large fireplace. The staff was friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, the food doesn't live up to the setting or the staff.
First, the vegetarian options were extremely limited. When we asked about this, the waiter indicated there were no other options. The mushrooms were bland and was simply one kind of mushrooms. The "crushed" potatoes were fairly flavorless and seemed to be just potatoes mixed with a bit of butter and italian parsley. Thank goodness for the salt and pepper on the table. My companion had black cod which was good but again unimaginative and basic. The desserts were non-descript. Ironically, the best part of the meal (not including the wine) was the amuse bouche which was a sunchoke soup and was complimentary. Without the setting, this restaurant has little to offer, especially for the price point. And ironically, we wondered into the lounge afterwards only to find that there were several vegetarian options available. The staff should have offered us a view of that menu or made us aware of it, as I have experienced at many fine restaurants. Will I go back? Not sure. I hear the brunch is quite good.
