    This is a pleasant place to have dinner. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have a very good selection of beers, many of them local, and the food is good. I can vouch for the fish tacos at least. I would certainly return should I find myself in that part of Redding again.

    Dined on 7/2/2014
    Every dish we had was beautifully presented and well prepared. The fajita spring rolls were delicious, my husband and I shared one order, but they are enough for 3 people. The braised ribs were outstanding and the halibut was very good too. When it comes to dessert, do not miss the flan; the best I had in a long time. And the service was friendly and efficient. You can't ask for more. We plan to make it our go-to restaurant every time we come to Redding.

    Very good food. noise level was too high. very good service. Beer list was too heavy on IPA. Could use more porter/stout options. Suggest adding ninkasa or stone brewery to list.

    Nice restaurant with bar inside BestWestern motel. Nice menu, something for any palate with a wine list to complement. Service was very good, server helpful with dinner selections, attentive but not hovering. Food was good to very good, large portions. Usually they also have a nice outdoor dining area, was closed this trip due to some remodeling. Good for any size group. Will be back.

    As a Redding local, I can assure you this is one of the finer restaurants in our area. The lasagna is unique and flavorful. My favorite is the peel-n-eat shrimp appetizer, followed by a mediterranean salad and for the main course the salmon. We take out of town clients to C.R. Gibbs as well as family. Just an all around excellent dining experience.

    Food mediocre, very loud inside, sat on patio with outdoor chairs, metal weave that require a pad, but only about 1 in 10 chairs actually had pads. Found pads for me and my wife as rear-ends were starting to hurt after 5 mins. One waiter noticed after about 15 mins. that we weren't given any bread and asked if we'd like some. We said, "yes", he returned 15 mins. later saying, "I finally made it back"!? We wouldn't return.

    Great Redding restaurant, upscale with casual atmosphere, and nice outdoor dining area on those warm summer evenings. Excellent for the traveler passing through, close to several hotels. Nice menu, from apps, salads, pizza, to steak, seafood, and other delights. Service was very good, friendly staff, attentive, interested in your enjoying your dining experience. Have eaten here several times, enjoying it more with each visit. Definitely worth trying.

    I made reservations for Fathers Day based on previous good experience.Our reservations were for 11 am, the waitress only asked for drink orders for our kids and I had to stop her to ask for something for my husband and I. Food was not restocked in a timely manner and we had to look for our waitress for help.The place was not that busy, we noted, many unoccupied tables.People were standing around with their plates waiting for food to be restocked and heard unfavorable comments.For example,we waited for over 1/2 hour for waffels to be restocked.In the past they had a meat station which had been deleted from the service. When asked, when food would be out, we got the excuse that they were very busy. Service was poor and the food was marginal

    We had a soccer tournament in Redding. The team stayed in Best Western and the convenience of having the restaurant right on premises was the initial impetus to book tables there. The staff were accomodating to the point of dividing the bills per family. The food was good and choice of wine and other drinks as well was good. Price is moderate. e enjoyed our evening. Their brunch next day was good.
