The Hideout Kitchen & Cafe - Lafayette
a great neighborhood restaurant- friendly staff and good food!
Great local spot! Food was really good, and the ambiance is really sweet.
This is a special restaurant. Food never disappoints. Presentations appealing. Portions are quite generous. There’s an outdoor patio and on a lovely night the large windows are opened per your personal comfort as well. Disappointed they no longer provide Perseco, a favorite of mine. Told because not enough interest. Lastly wonderful for any and all occasions noted.
Wonderful meal. Big party next to us speaking very loudly with little sound absorbent in the library. Food and service was terrific.
After ordering, it took nearly 45 min to receive a dinner salad with chicken and an order of Cioppino. Way too long.
Both the food and the service are always excellent
Phenomenal food. I love to cook and I couldn't do what they did. Brussel sprouts and blacked salmon are a must. The ribeye steak was a sub par cut.
Appreciated the good but unobtrusive service. We stayed and enjoyed sharing several different dishes, ordering as the evening progressed. No pressure from the wait staff. Wonderful evening and good food. All of us would return with spouses
Every time I go, the same thing happens!
THE FOOD IS GREAT!
Don’t forget to check out their other restaurant for breakfast and lunch
Vic’s in Martinez!
Always superb, my go to spot.
Probably one of the better restaurants in Lafayette, for a quiet, eclectic meal.
LOVED everything about the Hideout. The brunch and dinners are amazing. The service is superb and the ambience is cozy.
We had a wonderful time at The Hideout. It was our first time there and we will certainly return. Our food was delicious and service was attentive.
Beautiful day. Windows open. Relaxing.
Great place hidden off the Main Street. Would like to be in the main room next time as the “library” can feel a bit far from the kitchen.
Excellent as always! Great service, great food, nice relaxed atmosphere. A true Lafayette gem!
I love this place when they first opened. The service was great but like any other restaurant business, they expand and quality of service decline.
6 of us celebrated my daughter’s birthday plus Father’s Day. Our first time here. We loved it! My daughter-in-law is a chef so we always look to her for the expert opinion. She was very happy with everything that was presented. Service was also excellent. We sat in a cozy nook with lots of pillows, so comfortable. Everything served was fresh and flavorful. 5 stars!
Really had a wonderful experience at Hideout. It was our second visit and I didn’t know if it would be as good as the first but it was even better. So nice to go to dinner, have good service and good food without having to shout across the table. Perfect. Great interesting white wine selection too. That can be tough to find other places
Love this place
We sat in the Library room and found it was very comfortable. Lafayette salad and wedge salad were both yummy. The pork chop with succotash was outstanding and the daily fish special of halibut with mixed vegetables was wonderful. Attentive service and generous portions also impressive. We'll be back!
We arrived on a very busy Wednesday night for a birthday celebration. The five of us had four different entrees; some were very good and some were mediocre. The fried chicken was the best, the cobb salad the worst where the avocado was hard as a rock and the grilled chicken in the salad was overcooked, very dry and tasteless. For a restaurant in this price range, surprised that they use cheap recycled paper napkins. It was so noisy it was hard to carry on a conversation.
On a hot day it was a pleasure to sit on the small patio to eat good food and have a conversation that didn't compete with the noise level.
Always enjoyable meal here. Food was good and portion size big. A little disappointing all the rose wine was gone and the noise level seems louder than other times I was there. All in all a great local place for dinner.
4th time here and we normally enjoy our meal. But this experience put us off for a while. Pork chop was dry, replaced for the steak and that was very oily and hadn’t been rested.
My wife had the normally excellent fish stew and it was served half hot and half cold, indicating it had been microwaved.
To top it off sat in a chair that had old gum on the seat that messed up my shirt. They offered to dry clean but overall the experience was bad and we won’t return for a while.
Food was beyond expectations and the quality of food was far greater than expected for the cost.
We have really loved this place for the past year or so. Consistently fresh, tasty food. Had dinner here a few nights ago and it seems to have gone downhill. The food was overcooked (both the Halibut and the Seafood Stew) and the vegetables were had a strange mixture of spices. I hope the chef just had a night off as I think this is a really good addition to Lafayette.
Great find, food was excellent and the staff was friendly.
Small place with fresh and lovely food, friendly and excellent service. Our party had the wedge salad, the chicken cobb salad, kids chicken strips, and everything was delicious. Kids chicken was a real piece of chicken, hand-breaded and fried so nothing frozen on that plate. And the salads were filling and full of fresh ingredients and toppings.
The food was delicious! My guest and I shared a Kale and Pancetta salad. It was a good thing because the salads are huge. They can be a meal by themselves. I had the flatbread and my guest had the mussels and clams. It was a tasty meal, very fresh ingredients, pleasant service. We will return!!
Celebrating a birthday and RJ provided exceptional service! He was most attentive and accommodating with any special request for substitutions. Food was outstanding! We will definitely return. Thanks for making our celebration memorable!
My first visit, but certainly not the last. We were early for our reservation, but were easily accommodated. The service was attentive without being obtrusive. The food was quite excellent, and by all accounts everyone in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying themselves. I will look for opportunities to return.
Great tasting food! Flexible kitchen willing to make adjustments (to handle our dietary restrictions) (eg pancetta on side for kale salad so could share salad with vegetarian, swap rice pilaf for sweet potato fries). Excellent service, they split our salads in the kitchen, so we didn’t have to do the messy work. Fantastic tasting food. Loved the fried chicken, the seafood stew, the lamb chops. Portions are large! Always too full to try the desserts.
Excellent dinner menu and ambiance. We recommend both the mixed seafood and salmon plate. Lovely presentation.
The Apple flatbread starter was tasty. The fried chicken was mostly good but had a piece that was so tough to cut but not overly dry that it reminded me of turkey. Maybe brined overcooked chicken? Glad it was the last piece of 3 that we shared. The kale & mashed potatoes were very tasty.
I enjoyed a nice dinner with my friend as I’ve heard great things about this place. Food and service was very good but not over the top great. I’d come back to try breakfast next time!
The food is SO good. This was our second time there and we can't wait to go back!
Excellent food. Excellent service. I’d definitely recommend to my friends.
While we have had breakfast here a few times, this was our first time for dinner. The menu selections are interesting, the food is excellent based on our selections and the service impeccable. You will not leave hungry in that their portions are abundant. My wife had the shrimp and grits which was very tasty. I had the fried chicken with truffle honey which was delicious. The chicken pieces were boneless with a lovely crusted beading. We also shared a very interesting dessert-an ice cream sandwich, consisting of a waffle square on which was placed a scoop of ice cream topped with another waffle square and flavored whipped cream. Delicious and also a large portion. Couldn’t be happier.
The attention to the simple things makes this restaurant a wonderful find.
Always great. The outside seating during this time of year is a real joy.
