The Mustard Seed
such a fantastic find in Davis - wonderful delicious food, robust portions, charming and very cozy ambiance, great service. we loved this place and will be back.
The food and service is always top notch!
Apparently under new management but good as it used to be. New menu to me. next time I go there I will take a cushion though, chairs not comfortable.
Wonderful setting and service. Delicious food
The food was delicious. We’ll be back again, for sure.
Probably the best restaurant in Davis in all respects!
Service was impeccable, food was excellent. Such a beautiful outdoor patio, we had a really lovely evening. Definitely will be back!
We really enjoyed the food in Mustard Seed. Our only problem was that it took about an hour for food to be serviced, which was a bit more than usual. Except from that, we highly recommend this place for families and couples :)
Exquisite food, well presented from a very tasty menu. Superb for a memory event.
Really nice spot in Davis, CA. Food and service were both excellent. We will definitely return here the next time were are in Davis.
The food and service was good.
We felt the duck was a little undercooked and the amount of sauce on the meat overpowered the meat on the duck and the lamb.
The steak and lamb were good and cooked to perfection.
We would visit the restaurant again.
Very good food and good service
Great food, great service and great atmosphere! What more could you ask for!
Food is prepared well but with little imagination. Steep prices, but large portions. Service was OK, had to wait a while for the entrees.
Went to visit a friend who relocated from Oakland. A very nice local find. Interesting versions of traditional dishes. The service was just a little bit slow, but would definitely return.
My long-time favorite curried tuna salad is still on the menu, and as good as ever with the new owners. However, I missed having a larger number of purple grapes and, especially, the orange bread that came with the salad version. Plain baguette just doesn't complement the curry flavor.
The profiteroles were delicious, but there were only two instead of the three that used to arrive on a rectangular plate. The presentation, however, was quite beautiful.
Meal was amazing as usual! And the ambiance and service was impeccable!
Private business meeting
My wife and I celebrated our 37th anniversary with a very pleasant dining experience at The Mustard Seed. The new owners are very gracious and attentive hosts and the food was outstanding! We loved the rustic pate appetizer, cucumber and watermelon salad (which we shared) and our entrees: the langoustine gnocchi and the very fresh scallops in a spicy curry with forbidden rice. Don’t miss the profiteroles for dessert - perfect with coffee.
We liked everything about our Dinner at Mustard Seed! High end quality and service at reasonable prices. Would recommend it to anyone and with the cool environment, think it would be especially nice for soecial occasions.
The patio setting was lively on a warm summer night. Service was very slow. Food very good.
The Mustard Seed has new owners who could not be nicer! The quality icgge food is superb. This is my favorite restaurant in Davis.
The Mustard Seed was very busy when we came and the density made it fairly loud. we opted to sit outside and once the neighboring table, which was really loud left, it was delightful. The food was excellent and well worth the wait.
Good food and service! We will be back! The scallop dish is very good!
Crab cakes were superb - best I have ever had! Gnocchis as main course was top notch. Poured by glass Wine list was OK, but short list. Overall, excellent.
It was a perfect place for a quiet birthday dinner. Definitely going back just for the food.
I had the seared Ahi which was cooked exactly as I ordered with the waiter - I wanted the sear to be a little longer than normal. My wife had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly and the spice was just right enough to be warm but not too much. Looking forward to more dinners in the fall in the back patio.
The food was excellent . The service was attentive but not overbearing. The restaurant is divided into separate spaces, which keeps each space quiet and appealingly intimate.
Amazing staff, amazing food, an all around wonderful dining experience!
Sweet lunch place in downtown Davis. They offer alfresco dining, which was nice on a summer day. Street parking only. Food was good, not exceptional. Staff was friendly and attentive.
Mustard Seed has never disappointed me or my guests. Hope they continue to be a quality restaurant.
I wrote it and it was discarded when the open table rules and regulations overwrote the send box.
The food and service at The Mustard Seed are consistently very good!
Outstanding, outstanding, outstanding, outstanding!!!
Love love love the Mustard Seed! Absolutely top notch, all across the board. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
What a gem. So charming - both the ambiance and the owners. We were visiting Davis for a campus tour and wanted a nice dinner out. Food was excellent - we had the gnocchi, the lamb and the duck and enjoyed every one of them. Highly recommend.
We were very happy with our dinner and the service. No complaints here 😊
This was by far my most disappointing experience ever at this restaurant. They were out of most of the main dishes, which we learned gradually as we requested different items. The waitress took away our menus after our initial order. After our second round of unsuccessful orders, we requested the menus back. A few minutes later she returned without menus but said, "all we have is gnocchi, lamb, and steak," and seemed to expect us to choose from that alone. We had to ask again for the menus, which she finally brought. Then there was a very long wait for the food, which the waitress explained as the kitchen having run out of the brine for one of the dishes and restarting from scratch. (We had not been warned when we ordered that the dish would take especially long.) At the end she comped us one of the desserts....but also billed us for an appetizer that we hadn't ordered. The food itself was good but not stellar enough to overcome all the other problems. I plan to give them one more chance for old times' sake, but unless it's much improved that will be the end for me.
One of the best restaurants in Davis. As always the food, service and atmosphere were excellent.
