    I’ve been here 3 times before and it’s always been a good experience with good food. Not this time. Service was terrible food was awful!!! And the bill was outrageous. I would not recommend coming here anymore. Farm to table restaurants are hard to come by in the central valley so I was expecting the same experience I had the first time. Unfortunately, it has gone down.

    For a busy night the service staff were top notch and the kitchen performed very well The sweet potato gnocchi with its lightly creamy sauce was a delight The Brussels sprouts prepared by frying with bits of maple bacon left a well deserved empty plate

    Service was pretty slow. We had reservations which I would highly recommend, especially for a Saturday evening. Portions were very small considering the price. I had the beet salad which was delicious, but I am pretty sure it contained only one beet, cut in pieces to spread it across the plate to make it look like more. The French onion soup was just ok. Nothing special. Not salty at all. The short rib was one small square. Once the fat was removed there was very little meat left, but it was extremely tasty and tender. It was served with polenta which was very rich, possibly made with cream? This was our first time trying the restaurant, but we will be back for the lamb lollipops! Absolutely the best ever! I do not know how they did it, but they did not have the typical lamb flavor at all. Prepared with a coating that was delicious. So tender they melted in your mouth. Order the appetizer portion. You will get 3 of them and it is a full meal in itself!

    This was my husband, and I first experience at this restaurant we had walked in a week prior with last-minute reservations and got a really busy vibe. We ended up leaving rescheduling our reservation this time much quieter during the weekday I would say weekends are busy louder versus weekday much quieter food presentation drinks, quality of taste are amazing. Service was fast, clean, and tidy. would recommend this restaurant to Anyone

    We were impressed by the excellent service, plate presentation and portions. But most of all the flavors! Our meals were cooked to perfection! The Surf and Turf was wonderful and the Bread Pudding was a pleasant ending to an enjoyable evening. We don’t go out that often so paying a little more for such a great experience was well worth it.

    We had heard very good things about this fairly new restaurant. We were a party of four and started with drinks &Drinks were great. two appetizers. The Spanish Grilled Octopus and the Roasted Carrotts in Puff Pastry. The grilled octopus seemed to be marinated in something that took away the texture and left it very odd. If it was grilled, it was grilled hours earlier. We did not eat this and it was removed from our bill. The carrot appetizer, while very good, was not a puff pastry at all. It was more like roasted carrots on a very hard cracker. We ordered a salad that never came. Our entrees were pappardelle bolognese, filet and bone-in pork chop. All the entrees were very delicious and cooked to perfection. The hasselback potato was cold. The mashed potatoes were also cold and seemed to have been made way ahead. The roasted brussel sprouts were fantastic. We might try here again, but they have some work to do before we would rave about them. The service was very good overall (except for the salad). However, we did enjoy our evening and might give them another try....not sure.
