Well worth the priceEverything we orderes for brunch was exquisite. Beautiful outdoor seating with gorgeous garden. Great service. We had four children with us and sat at the back side of the patio and they were free to roam and explore in a safe/closed environment.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMbest mother's day brunch ever!I took my wife and her aunt to this restaurant for Mother's Day Brunch this past Sunday. We had a 130pm reservation. We choose an outdoor table as it was a beautiful day! The selection of food was fantastic........the quality excellent. They maintained the quantity of food throughout the day. The service was fast, and most pleasant! We could not have been happier. The price was an outstanding value at $39 per adult. Exceeded expectations!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Pleasant, Relaxed LunchI took my sister there for a birthday lunch and we enjoyed a delicious meal of very fresh food. We had the artichoke with aoili, accompanied with micro greens, that was very tasty, just needed a little more sauce with it. Then we shared the fish tacos that were presented on an attractive plate of sauces, shredded cabbage, avocado and lemon, just right for sharing. Our wine selection was a local pinot gris,refreshing for a warm afternoon. We sat under a huge cypress (?) tree that provided a perfect amount of shade and breeze. Service was very attentive...just one little detail in that our waitress mentioned that the kitchen was a great distance away. It was uncertain if she was complaining or excusing herself for the time it took...awkward.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile to food was very good,While to food was very good, the service staff shined. From the hostess to the busstaff, you felt like you were in a friend's home for dinner. Alway smiling and engaging, the staff were well versed on the cuisine and the ingredients.
Truly a pleasurable experience and one that I will be repeating soon.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurantsOne of our favorite restaurants in the Sonoma/Napa area. Can always count on getting "very good" to "excellent entrees" and find the right wines to complement our meals.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is fabulous. EverythingThis place is fabulous. Everything we tried was exquisite. One of the best meals I have ever enjoyed. The scallops with bacon was our table's favorite but the mussels (an appetizer of great porportion) was up there too. They carry a "Federalist Dry Creek Zin" that is out of this world. Highly recommended this restaurant.
Len H Sebastopol CA4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Discovery!This is a wonderful discovery! We remember it as Marty's Top of the Hill....a long ago hot spot for singles! The transformation is amazing...the food was superb! The presentation was beautiful and artful, the produce fresh and aromatic. You can definitely tell the veggies are home grown and handled with respect. The interior is very beautifully done. We came for my daughter's birthday lunch, mid-week, the wait staff was so attentive and warm. The chef came out of the kitchen for a minute and we were able to praise this humble man for this gorgeous food. Definitely worth the little extra drive to be in beautiful Sebastopol for such an amazing dining experience. I only wish they had a more substantial wine list.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLe bonheurIt's a beautiful setting with artfully prepared, organic food.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our dinner at FrenchEnjoyed our dinner at French Garden. Salads and soup were delicious. Loved my Asparagus lasagne. Chocolate dessert was yummy. We were there at restaurant week so 4 of the 6 of us had the price fix meal. We liked our server very much, although there were a few mistakes. One of the three drinks were wrong - not the servers fault. In addition, we were charged for 5 price fix meals instead of 4. We caught it before we paid but it just leaves a "bad taste" when this happens.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant Week WinnerI picked this restaurant to try during Restaurant Week because it looked interesting. The dining area is attractive and the outside patio looked lovely (we ate inside.) It was hard to chose between the starters; I got the soup and my daughter chose the sardine. Both were great. We both had the halibut; the broth was amazing! We had to take some of the chocolate dessert home because it was so rich. I would definitely return, especially for a special occasion (birthday, anniversary.) The servers were attentive and friendly.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us went for ResraurantFour of us went for Resraurant Week. Two of us had the halibut entrée, one had the asparagus entrée and one had the rib eye entrée. Food was delicious! The only issue for one of our group was the portion - very small. We will be back!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. MusicGreat food and service. Music in the bar area is always a treat.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for the restaurantWe went for the restaurant week tasting menu. The food was very good and so was the service. Not the most gourmet food I've ever had, but it's good for the price. Service was great, bar had live music (but it didn't disturb the dining bc there is a door), and the cocktails were exceptional.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for anniversary dinnerOur 42nd anniversary and this was a very nice place for a special dinner. Lots of highly publicized restaurants in the wine country; this one deserves more recognition.Beautiful decor inside and comfy outside seating. Parking limited on Sat. nightWine-by-the-glass selection could be much better.Food and service very good.Recommended.We will return.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful night out! GreatA wonderful night out! Great food, service, ambiance.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA little off-kilter this timeIn 2012 we had a wonderful lunch here. Sadly, my solo lunch to start 2013 was a full level below that fine memory. Persimmon salad was out of balance: tart dressing overwhelmed the minimal accompaniments of chestnuts, chevre, and fruit. Oregon seabass wasn't as fresh as it could have been, but sides of risotto, vegetables and sauce could have stood on their own as a vegetarian entree they were so good, so the dish did redeem itself. Cappuccino was large but too "wet"; good taste but way too much milkiness. Service here is always excellent; the two waitresses worked smoothly in tandem which made the meal a real pleasure, slight slips in the food notwithstanding. We plan to return on our next visit for dinner.1/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
