The name of the Magnolia has changed to 95a. Went with some friends on a Monday night so it's understandable that the restaurant wasn't crowded. We ordered drinks and tapas - note to everyone, while they do discount drinks during Happy Hour, the tapas are not discounted, so you will pay the menu price. They did have a fairly extensive tapas menu, and also a sushi menu, we didn't try the sushi. The tapas were fine, crab cakes just so so, the quesadilla was very tasty, the bangers and mash was a mixed bag, the bangers were dried out, the mash was fine. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, the wait staff were very helpful and nice, but it wasn't outstanding. They have a very extensive menu which makes it challenging for the chefs to be good in all areas. I wouldn't say there is one defining cuisine. This is evidenced by the aforementioned tapas - bangers and mash, English, sushi, Asian and quesadillas, Mexican. Perhaps more focus in one area???? It wasn't a bad experience, it just wasn't great, so we will keep looking.

We really enjoy Magnolia - haven't been since they changed the name (now called 95a) but we are looking forward to returning soon. The food is good, the patio is very nice on a summer evening and the staff and owner are very friendly and helpful. We moved to the area recently and enjoy being able to walk to the restaurant and enjoy a nice meal. Highly recommended!

The restaurant is positioned next to a lush green field with lovely trees and a mountain view. There is a lower and upper deck to enjoy the view. The food is very tasty, and it is very reasonably priced! Not to mention, the waitstaff and owners are helpful and friendly. Great place for a date!

Saw a review of Magnolia in a local publication and couldn't wait to try it. We loved the concept of locally sourced / sustainable alongside an all day Sunday happy hour! We were not disappointed. There were very few happy hour menu items our table of 4 did not try. In fact, after round 1, we loaded back up on round 2.

Big thumbs up on the tempura avacado - we ordered a 2nd! Loved the smoked chicken quesadilla (again, had a second!) the warm cambazola cheese was fantastic, and we loved the homemade veggie chips. $3 wine to top it off was a real treat. Only down side for this beer drinker, was that they were out of 1/2 of their draft beers!!

While the happy hour plates were a nice deal, we couldn't help but dig into desserts, which were a bit pricey. That said, ginger cheesecake was worth the price!!
We'll definitely go again and can hardly wait for the weather to warm up to sit on the patio for our next feast!!
