Excellent menu but could include another veggie entree like a plant based burger to menu for selection.

A five star lunch place? Absolutely. We drank craft cocktails (excellent spicy margarita), and split a turkey sandwich, soup and salad (all excellent). Sat outside on a beautiful day. Service was attentive and the mood was mellow. Perfect way to enjoy your time in Los Olivos.

Still one of my favorites and a destination place for fine food. After so many years, the Brothers are still delivering a delectable menu and a staff that is Michelin star worthy. Truly still a hidden gem with house made thick cut bacon that defines what thick cut bacon should be.

Atmosphere and food outstanding. Unfortunately the service fell short. We waited a long period from our starter to entree and rarely saw our server. It appeared he only had one of the four tables outside while all of his other tables were inside, which got more of his attention so our service suffered. Also, dirty dishes from starter only cleared when we asked and silverware taken but not replaced. Nonetheless the food is amazing and we would go back.

My favorite restaurant in Los Olivos and Sides ranks among the best on the Central Coast. There are many reasons, besides never being disappointed here, foremost for their excellent cuisine. I love the food, which is always fresh and delicious. The service is also great, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. The restaurant in clean, comfortable, and family friendly. I also appreciate the fact their wines by the glass are on tap, and the wine list features most of my local favorites. Whenever I visit, I make Sides one of my first stops.

Sides Hardware and Shoes is a one of a kind treasure in Los Olivos. We live in Thousand Oaks but have been there a few times when we visit a couple of wineries and Chumash Casino. I've even driven there just to go there!
The food is unique, tasty...not cheap but quality never is!

Over all...Excellent!

I’ve been to Sides for dinner and that experience was amazing. Came back here while my husband and I were in town for lunch...and was pretty disappointed. The food was very bland and the service wasn’t great either. Maybe we caught it on an “off” day.

We were there for Taco Tuesday--three different tacos and each one delightful in their own right and the guacamole salsa was yummy: Bear Battered Avocado taco, Pork Belly Taco, and Ahi Taco. Probably more than you're used to paying for tacos but I'd say that these are unique. Very sweet waitress.
