Very nice place - the setting in the cellar, the wine and beer selection, the food and the service. On the way back from river rafting we found this place - off the beaten path so you have to know it is there. You can sit out on the patio or down in the cellar by the bar. It was a very hot day so we sat in the cellar. The cellar is the shaft to an old gold mine and also has a powder room (think dynamite). Very nice setting. The bar has some very nice beer selections from local breweries and the vines were very nice. The Italian style wine that I had was very nice - also had a nice Rose that was deep red as was made with a lot more skin. Loved it.
Now the food - the small plates were great in the ceviche and shrimp cake. Risotto was awesome too made with fresh local vegetables - flavorful and very nicely done. My 8 year old finished his three pulled pork sliders as if he was sniffing them and said they were his best - he is some what of a pulled pork connissieur as he tries them everywhere so big statement coming from him - did not even let me get a taste. The Margarehita pizza was awesome - loved the fact that they had tomatoes on it. Tried the sea bass also from the table and that could have been better - that was the special - while the fish was good it was a bit too over done for sea bass from my perspective and was getting to get dry - the chef also came to visit but i did not have the heart to tell him that.
I will be a regular here now on my way to south lake tahoe. Just loved it.
The best part was our server Ashley who is also the sommelier and was very nice. I just like such people - she recommeded stuff but was not over bearing just nice- liked her wine recommendations. She has just moved to the area and I hope she stays there.
There was 8 of us 4 adults and 4 kids and hence we got to try out so much food. Like the concept of using local produce to the extent they can.
Again what a find. Loved it !!!!
