“Excellence All Around!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

New chef this year, the menu has changed a bit (no more wild boar). I enjoyed a mouthwatering filet mignon cooked to perfection. The server was friendly and accommodating. For dessert I savored a delicious homemade apricot sorbet. We visit here every year and are never disappointed.

“great lunch”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Had a very nice lunch on the deck. Beautiful lake view and the lunch was very good. I had the trout and it was perfect. The parsnip soup was the star as it was the best soup I have ever enjoyed. 5 stars but note the setting is simple and casual , but so were the prices and the service was top notch.

“Gourmet food in a historic lodge”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The food we had was excellent, the FULTON FARMS ORGANIC CHICKEN and the trout special. The gazpacho was also wonderful.

“One of the best restaurants in Mammoth”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

The setting and the tiny dining room takes you back to a European feeling of pleasurable eating. We had the chicken dish and a filet mignon and both were accompanied with unusual touches of spices and combinations. Two entrees, 2 glasses of wine and a shared dessert plus tax and tip was ~$115, but truly a gourmet experience.

“another new chef”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This restaurant is certainly better than #10 in Mammoth.It is very different than it was for about 16 years with chef Fred.It is still very good but more California than French cuisine. This is the third chef in several years. According to our server, the current chef wans to emphasize fresh local ingredients. We need to give him time but our dinner was very good. The trout was equal to Michelin starred Providence in LA. The tomato & watermelon salad was also very good.The veal chop was very generic.
