Recently dined here and was most impressed. I had not eaten since the move from Woodside to Redwood City and the atmosphere and excellent food traveled well.The menu is relatively small but quite imaginative (e.g. sweetbreads with bacon mashed potatoes, asparagus, etc.) Nice wine selection, friendly but efficient service. Meals were delicious. A favorite...

Small restaurant with a lot of class. Menu, selections of wine and drinks and service were all outstanding! Specials made the selection easy. Would definitely go back on another trip out here.

This has become one of our favorite places to dine. The staff are great and with low turn over we see the same staff when we go in. Nice to be remembered. Chef John's menus are always changing and each time we try something it is better than the time before. Nice private dining room on the second level if you are looking for that.
