We're California born and bred. Best in the world? Yeah. We’ve got that. These are year-round farms. Lifelong fishermen. Orchards that thrive well beyond the fall. Our ingredients here in Southern California are the very best, and we treat them with the respect that they deserve. Join us and Executive Chef Jason Neroni for an experience that showcases the best of the bounty, with flavors that are truly memorable.

    From the walk up the stairs to the end of your meal it is a dinning experience. A must.

    Go NOW before everyone catches on -- this is a gem. It's in the hotel, just up the stairs. Heirloom tomato appetizer was on point with just the right complement of spice to elevate the dish. Black cod had fantastic texture & the accompanying sauce was rich without overwhelming the fish. The Sloe Gin cocktail had a masterful almost meringue-like head that tingled on the lips. The space is well thought out and there's no "bad" table. Service was solid, attentive without being imposing.

    Cory treated us to some bubbly to start our anniversary celebration. Philip answered all our menu questions and we had an excellent experience all around. Would recommend to any foodie.

    Great service at all levels. Wine list short but well chosen with some unusual wonderful choices. Hiromasa excellent. Cucumber noodles with uni and lobster outstanding. Heirloom tomato choices even in November tasty and well presented witj EVOO and basil. Beef cheeks were the best of the evening. Very aware and helpful re: food allergies. All in all a very pleasant experience. dan keiller
