Central Coast's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
I was so incredibly impressed at how phenomenal this tasting menu was. I've eaten at my fair share of restaurants, but Aubergine has left me with the same gastronomic awe as Saison and Manresa. It's local and innovative ingredient driven cuisine. Very creative dishes but still maintain the integrity of each dish. The dining room sits only ~20 people and is very cozy, but the interior design very warm and tranquil. My only complaint is the music selection, which doesn't match the restaurant. Service was very good and any and all my questions were answered. I was dining alone while reading a book so I was pretty easy to take care of. My only complaints here was that I had to serve myself my own tea and there were crumbs on my table that weren't cleared. Not huge service issues, but just minor details. Anywho, Aubergine is a tremendous restaurant and I'll be returning, hopefully monthly, for the rediscovering flavour dinners and at least seasonally to see the progression. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I love Goshi's. I have been coming here for over 25 years and have always had a fabulous meal. Everything they prepare is amazing, sushi is super fresh and always a variety on the fresh fish board. It is the only authentic Japanese owned and operated sushi bar on the Central Coast. I eat here at least twice a week and look forward to coming every time. Some of my most memorable dining experiences have been at Goshi's. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Discover California Central Coast
The California Central Coast is home to beautiful beaches, and it is also a major source of fresh seafood for local restaurants. Enjoy a locally caught Cajun-style Albacore tuna steak, panko-crusted and topped with wasabi coleslaw and sliced avocado. Elsewhere, you may prefer the halibut, which is in season year-round in the area and guaranteed to be fresh. Order it lightly cooked in lemon and butter, sauteed in wine, butter, garlic, and capers and served over pasta or with potatoes. The coast has more than seafood, as residents and visitors can relish a California beet salad made with sliced beets over butter lettuce and liberally sprinkled goat cheese dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
