    Delicious meal. Attentive servers. Table cleared promptly between courses and water filled. Yes the bread is expensive like everyone says but it was delicious and we were glad we had it. Only issue was the Sommelier was a bit pretentious. My brother brought a really nice bottle of wine for us that he brought here from Sonoma and the sommelier turned up his nose like it wasn’t good enough for him. Uncalled for attitude. Anyway we loved the food and experience and will be back.

    Had an amazing dinner outside - very welcoming to our 70# Rottweiler/Shepard mix. Food was great - something for everyone in our group - and our server, Grant, was fantastic. Thanks for a great evening!

    We had a great time at the restaurant everybody is so friendly & accomodating, special mention to Shana our waitress who went far & beyond her customer service , she served us with her sweet smile & impeccable demeanor, also the lady in the front desk we forgot to ask her name is very kind & sweet even if we were late we still felt her warm welcome & escorted us to our table, thank you all so much for your excellent customer service our 3 hrs drive from Sacramento is all worth it to celebrate Father’s days in advance with you guys, the food is good & the ambiance is beautiful & relaxing & above all are the staff who are all very friendly.

    A spectacular view and great service. The food is quite good, and there is an interesting selection of wines by the glass. It is not cheap but is a great destination if you're looking for a relaxing meal in a lovely location.
