We had a table of three and there was a large party of 15 or so nearby which increased the noise, but it wasn’t too bad and in these times there’s nothing they can do. The service and food was great. The staff offered to relocate us but it wasn’t necessary. Food was well prepared and presented and in spite of the large party backing up the kitchen a bit the staff kept working hard to get our food to us as fast as possible. Will be going back for sure.

Lovely as always
Food menu changes daily so just be careful that OpenTable updates it. I didn't realize and came in expecting to order something different and was bummed when I realized OT had an older menu posted. Otherwise, service was good and food tasted so good, as always.

The food was excellent. I have been here several times and I've never been disappointed. The services was also top notch, we felt very welcomed and attended to. We were there on Sunday for lunch and they only sever brunch on Sunday's. I did not see that advertised anywhere. That being said, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The food was excellent, the service was not. Waited 10 minutes for our server, when he finally came he took our entire order and didn’t come back to the table until the food arrived, then brought our check before asking if we wanted dessert. I don’t like a waiter that constantly hovers but an occasional check in is reasonable, he failed here.

Entree were all good - then 10 minutes later when entrees were almost finished came the sides, most all covered in some green tasteless sauce (and cold). Server was cordial but not overly attentive or concerned about the situation. Doubt we will go back and would not recommend it to others.

Fabulous atmosphere, good drinks, lovely night, mediocre food. The gaspacho was sort of acidic and not the usual chunky texture, sort of creamy and my dinner partner could not eat it, because she thought it tasted, "fishy." To be fair, the tomatoes have been awful this year. The drinks before dinner were good. My pasta was slightly cool, and just simply not worth the price. I should have ordered something else. The Rose from Languedoq was perfect in warm weather. Crisp, and perfectly balanced. I wish the quality of the meal matched the excellence of the wine. The waiter was attentive and we did enjoy dining al fresco in a pleasant ambiance. The evening was lovely, I just wish I could have enjoyed the food more.

Beautiful, clean and delicious environment and cuisine. Staff was upbeat but knowledgeable. Cocktails were balanced and not oversweet. Food was timely, temperature accurate and beautifully plated. Each dish surpassed our expectations in that each were traditional brunch items done in an elevated way, maintaining the integrity of the dish while delivering a memorable element in each, tipping that fist bite over to perfection. For example, their French toast was light and fluffy and the edges of the bread perfectly crisp while inside each bite was a moist but light hint of baked custard, and the cold braised berries overtop supported with just the right amount of fruity sweetness.
The Chilequiles with salsa verde was served with firm crunchy tortilla chips instead of soggy, smothered, messy ones you might have encountered elsewhere. The queso fresco was bright and fresh indeed. The red onions sliced perfectly slender and mindfully dispersed, added a beautiful pop of color alongside unbruised sprigs of crisp cilantro.
Gorgeous AND delicious. I will be back again soon.

Poor value for money, small portions. High end restaurants should have bread and butter and soda refills, not nickel and dime everything. The burger came with 6 fries and no side salad or anything. At $26 for a burger, it is a bit excessive.

Very good food. Value for what you get is questionable at times. For example, $75 for only 3 rather small lamb chops, al a carte, is more expensive than other fine dining restaurants in the LA/OC area. Service is attentive.

Highly overpriced and no value for the money. The service and food were okay, but no better than at restaurants half the price. Charging New York prices in Redlands seems outrageous. I wouldn't go back based on the value proposition alone.

Ambience was nice and service and arrangement was appropriate for distancing. Our server was nice but we waited at least half an hour for our order which seemed a little long considering the restaurant was not at capacity. In the meanwhile we also were not served any bread while waiting but other tables were so not sure what happened.

We got the jumbo shrimp which was overcooked and a little on the saltier side. I wasn’t expecting a big portion by any means but the entree was really only 6 shrimps and no sides or anything else. It was disappointing.

Our other entree was the tagliatelle which was okay but again slightly salty. The wagyu beef is really just a buzz word and in all honesty my wife’s home cooked pasta with ground beef seemed better and more satisfying.

Overall I wanted to enjoy the food and dining experience more. It’s good to try but for the price and quality my wife and I agreed it’s not a place we would really want to go back to.

Our meal was superb in this restaurant. The Branzino, Garlic Prawns and Wagyu beef were all amazingly delicious. The outdoor patio dining is also very cozy and comfortable. I highly recommend this restaurant for any dining occasions.
