We look forward to Baby Pumpkin season, and it’s so worth the wait. Pumpkins are stuffed with Jarlsburg cheese and chicken, seasoned with peppercorns. Ours came with a side of pear walnut salad with vinaigrette dressing, which was the perfect complement to change an appetizer into a meal. We’re still thinking about how great it was a day later, and we’ll have to go back again before they run out!

Always a great choice for lunch or dinner in Visalia. It was very pleasant out in the courtyard and the food was excellent. The salmon was amazing and the cheesecake melted in the mouth.

Slice the Canadian Ham thinner for the egg Benedict. I spoke to David. Great guy. Looking forward to seeing him often.
Great meal. The falling ash was a problem, out of our control.

If you are going to make reservations, make sure you get a table in the patio. The restaurant has set up tables on the sidewalk and near the door. We sat on the sidewalk which was a horrible spot, cars passing super fast and your view is of people shopping at smart and final across the street.

I must recommend the Vodka Orange press! Fresh squeezed oranges and mint?!? Delicious!!
Thank you, Jeremy!
The service was flawless and beautiful! Thank you, Allie.
I felt safe with all their practices in place! I will be back!
P.S. You should definitely try the wedge salad as a pre course! It will blow your mind! Fresh creamy roquefort dressing to die for! 😋😍
Thank you, Vartanian’s!

Very nice way to spend a Sunday morning however; the service was much slower than typical VP expectations. Took almost 10 minutes to order our beverages and then they ended up coming out with our food another 20 minutes later. Timing just seemed to be off a little but food is always fantastic!

Once again David outshines himself as he always comes by the table and greets us. I also am very thankful of the addition of 2 new swamp coolers which made it so easy to sit out in 95 degree weather. I have reservations this Friday and next Tuesday for lunch. I am very pleased.
