We enjoyed the food here but the night we were there the service was terrible. Someone on the staff said they were shorthanded in the kitchen, which might have explained the problem. We started with an appetizer which came quickly, but our main course did not come for close to an hour after we had finished the appetizer. Someone came out after about 30 minutes to say food would come shortly but it did not for another 30 minutes. They did not bring any bread or even ask if we wanted another glass of wine. I thought in a classy and fairly expensive restaurant this was acceptable. When the food finally came it was delicious. My wife and I each had a rissoto like dish with scampi. It was terrific. When I complained about the servie when the check came, they took off the cost of one of the appetizers.

On my venture to eat and buy local and organic I have some to find there is a small price to pay, but Thomas Hill Organics was more than reasonable! While enjoying wonderful food up the coast of CA, THO was by far the tastiest meal we had. All locally grown, the meals were fresh and had a nice selection to fit all the tastes of our group! We had pizzas for an appetizer (different and unique, one with Pumpkin!) Burgers, flank steak, and halibut, all very impressive! If you are one to venture outside the box and try new things you may have not put with others, try halibut with watermelon/strawberries/and pistachios, amazing, Then this is the place for you! We would recommend this restaurant highly!

My husband and I loved our meal at Thomas Hill which specializes in using locally grown fresh organic ingredients. The menu offers a very nice selection. He had a delicious thai inspired shrimp and rice noodle dish and I enjoyed grilled peaches with couscous flavored with mint. It was a perfect summer lunch and we both want to attempt to recreate these dishes at home.

The food at THO is always interesting, high quality, and delicious. The service however is very uneven. The owner gets it but the staff don't seem to be trained to her standards of service.

The salads aren't the usual, for sure. THO isn't afraid to go outside the box for their ingredients and the combinations are always original and superb. Better to eat them there than to try to reproduce them at home!

We were very disappointed. Very limited menu...not what we saw online....service was terrible. Over an hour before any food appeared with no explanation and it didn't seem that busy. We would not recommend this restaurant.
