The food at the Brown Dog Cafe is consistently tasty and well-prepared, Tonight was no different. My salad and beautifully plated dessert were wonderful but the entree was definitely the star. I ordered the special which included a Hawaiian fish (opah, I believe) served atop green vegetables and sweet potato ravioli in a light but delicious sauce ($30). Delectable! The menu includes gluten-free and vegetarian options but a gentleman at an adjoining table wanted the same special and the chef agreed to prepare special gluten-free ravioli to accommodate his dietary request. This is a small, popular establishment (reservations recommended) and has a comfortable atmosphere (I wore jeans but most people were dressy casual).
In the past, I have rated Brown Dog Cafe 4 stars because the service was slow and insufficiently attentive but this Saturday night was just the opposite. My water glass was kept full, my server checked back with me multiple times, dirty plates were promptly cleared and the chef came thru the dining room several times to ensure that everything was running smoothly. It definitely was.
