Ordered the special, pan seared halibut and it was amazing! Cooked and seasoned to perfection. A complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our 45 anniversary was very nice.

Food was good but on the high side for cost. Got backed up so had to wait for service so hopefully if not in hurry you are good to go.

The absolute BEST service ever…and coming from a former dinner house manager, that’s a high bar.

5:30 reservation so restaurant was not crowded. Had the braised beef and pork ribs. Both were excellent. Slaw had vinaigrette dressing so it was a bit different, but good. The portions were good sized, so no room for dessert.

Steak Frites was perfectly cooked, very tender, lovely blue cheese butter on top, great fries and a good arugula salad which nicely offset the richness of the steak and butter/cheese. I will say that we waited an inordinately long time for our food, our very nice waiter dropped by and said, How's it going? We say, Fine...! and he realizes we never got the food, so he apologized and rushed to the kitchen and got our order re-input after which we quickly got the food. Never did quite understand what the issue was, seems like they misplaced our ticket. I'll give them a break given the difficulty with re-staffing as they open up from pandemic limits (however my wife tells me the same thing happened a couple of years ago, pre-pandemic). Still, a very good meal and experience overall

We had a great busboy and server that were always there for us, which was great. The inside is so beautiful, but we were seated outside, and our table was not big enough for the five of us. We will be back though.

We sat at the bar to eat, because we could only get a table outside. Love the ambiance and the vibe. I had the beet salad with salmon, on side as an add on. The beet salad was tasty but small, the salmon was grilled and very good. My friend had the onion soup and veggie risotto. The soup was good, the risotto was just ok but nothing innovative, kind of bland. We had Caroline very nice, Manny, very sweet, and Gil who got a little frustrated with us. I think everyone is trying hard to give good service. I had a Grey Goose dirty martini very nice and the Porterhouse red Wine choice, both were delicious. They let you taste the wine first, which is nice. Nice little neighborhood hang we enjoyed our time.

First, service was horrible. Had to get up once to get our own water. I don’t understand a restaurant that have bottles of water and they leave them in a central serving area instead of putting them on the dining table.
Food was mediocre at best. French onion soup is disgusting. I think it came from Costco.

Never again!

Food is delicious. We had the rib eye steak and beef brisket. Both yummy. The steak was grilled to perfection. Nice ambience. We really enjoyed our first restaurant dining experience in over a year!

We definitely will be back.

This was our first time here. We had 7:30 reservations and were seated at 7:15 because we arrived early. One of their specials was a Seabass and it caught my eye out of everything and I wanted the Seabass. But the waiter said they were running out so he went to go check. Turns out they were all out. So I had to settle for barbecue meatloaf. I could not believe a restaurant would be out of a special so early in the evening. They did apologize and I do understand but I could not stop my disappointment. Despite this, we enjoyed our time and the food was good, and our server Shawn was very attentive. We would return here again.

Booth too straight up when sitting for our party of 4, sat at table for 7, Aldo not very comfortable chairs. Excellent service, tasty meal.

On the way in from the parking lot by the succulents on the right, I tripped and fell down —there was an unmarked concrete sidewalk raising that went into entry area not easily seen.

Could be avoided by moving succulents over a bit.

It was nice. The menu is smaller due to covid but very good. The service is good but they bring bread but not the knife, The coffee but no sugar...so sometimes it felt slow even though the service was available. The wine all tasted horrible.

Went for mother's day. Portion of the sea scallop dish was disappointing. 4 scallops U-24-30 size. Service was slow; or server took over 5 minutes to greet us, 10 minutes to receive our drinks and forgot to bring bread and a high chair. I had to go inside and soak to a host to get a highchair 15 minutes after being seated.

It was great to be back! We sat inside but their outdoor seating area looked great, almost like a private dinning area with curtains separating each seating area. Thanks, Dry Creek Grill. Always amazing!

We started with cocktails - the mezcal based cocktail is dry, but worth getting. For dinner we had the loaded burger and the salmon with gnocchi . Both expertly prepared. The salmon in particular was a standout. About the most perfectly grilled salmon ever, and the gnocchi was excellent. Perfect service. Definitely recommend!

This has unfortunately gone downhill after Covid. We used to love coming here and couldn’t wait to get back. It was pretty sad. Food was dare I say it- actually horrible. I had the ribs which I used to Love. They were so dry- our waiter was extremely absent and uncommunicative. Our drinks got delivered to another table, our drinks when we got them were half full and one was wrong. Just sad. Not sure I’ll be going back after this.

A very nice mid level restaurant very much in the model of the Los Altos Grill. Of course the bar is quiet and things are a bit spaced out due to C-19 but overall it was a good night and dinner (so good to be back inside!). My wife and I rated it a solid B and will return. The short ribs were falling apart, as they should be, but way too many mashed potatoes and very little spinach, From an eating prospective and from visual the addition of more color would have been welcome.

The menu is still a little bit limited. I wished they would bring their pre-pandemic menu back now that capacity for the restaurant has increased with indoor dining options. Also noticed lots of changes among the staff. The restaurant ambience is still very nice, so I will definitely be coming back here.

Had a reservation and asked for indoor seating. Hostess was rude and said it wasn’t available. Then we were ignored by their service staff. It took us 45 minutes to get our drinks. Food was mediocre. Not a pleasant experience.

Was not impressed at this visit. Took 20 minutes to get our drink order put in, 35 more minutes to receive the drinks. Our order for dinner was taken an hour after we had been seated. The food was just OK and a second order of drinks was never received but did show up on the bill that we also had to flag the waitress down to get. It was a pretty agonizing 3 hours. It may have been that were not enough workers present but honestly it didn't look like they were moving very fast nor were stressed.
