This place is awesome, great menu of locally grown food, with various cultural twists. It's not a huge intimidating menu, and everything is great. We always have the cabbage lamb rolls, they have a citrusy taste and are awesome, as is the swordfish, and the chicken is so perfect. I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a nice spot for dinner in Petaluma or sonoma county in general

We stumbled onto to this hip little joint in historic downtown Petaluma. The hostess let us sneak in (without a reservation) for an early dinner before their dinner rush and we were glad we stopped in. So many great food & wine choices on the menu. We had the Chef's special: pork shoulder done in duck fat & finished in a demi glaze over mashed potatoes. It was so tender & just melted in your mouth! Our waitress was very friendly & knowledgeable. She shared the the chef has his own garden & farm, where everything was farm to table. We look forward to returning the next time that we're in town & if we have time,..it would be fun to visit the Chef's farm!

We had a family get together there and the staff could not have been nicer. Food is always good and if they have the confit, order it.

I don't think you can go wrong at this restaurant. Make sure to call for reservations, I think they probably get filled up. Excellent food, drinks, service, whole experience.

If we enjoy a restaurant, we'll go back. Even if it means extending a trip. I'll review more in this area but as for this one... We won't be back. It was pricey (which I don't actually mind if the restaurant is good) it was unbelievably hot. Hotter than outside! The food and service were nothing if not boring.
