“Really good!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The evening we were there it was very quiet, I gather that is unusual. The food was really excellent, we all really enjoyed the quality, the sauces, the freshness of the meal.

“Best Restaurant in Sebastopol.”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Owners, Joan and Dan are "salt of the earth" kind of folks. They grow the restaurant's produce; chef is "extrordinaire" and food is fabulous. Food is available in the bar area with free dance music and good ambiance.

“Loved the ambiance and the food”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We stopped here today on our way to Santa Rosa from Bodega Bay. We had lunch on the patio, and what a nice place to stop. The food and service were outstanding and we both totally enjoyed the experience. My husband had the gazpacho and goat cheese salad, I had the tomato soup and the mussels. Both were served well and tasted great.

I would definetly come back to this restaurant.

“over”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

totally over rated! What a disappointment. It was good, but not that good. It felt like the neighborhood hangout more than a nice restaurant.
