Always a great meal. I love the langoustine gnocchi; the lamb chops were delicious. Service is very professional and friendly. Nice ambiance.
Great Service and food. Just wish it was a tad bit hotter.
My dad really enjoyed the ribeye. He has cooked a lot of ribeyes himself and said this one was one of the best he’s ever had.
Awesome service and food
Food was good, service very slow, had to ask 3 times for a 2nd glass of wine and bread
It was my friend’s 99th birthday and we had a wonderful time! As always, the food was delicious and the warm chocolate cake with whipped cream was amazing!
Really nice food. Strongly recommend
This is a very cozy and even romantic restaurant. Three of the four things we had were excellent one was average, Overall a very good dining experience
I was surprised that there was a lack of social distancing in the restaurant between tables. Nor were attendees vaccination status requested.
Food was delicious from appetizers to desserts.
Service was excellent from the time we were seated till the end of our meal.
We brought our dog and they even gave him a treat😍😍
Always great. The new ahi tuna dish is excellent. Modest wine list covers a good spectrum of type and price. Service always very personable. Nice covered outdoor patio
We had a very pleasant and tasty lunch at The Mustard Seed a day ago. The remodeling of the patio was beautifully done, although we sat inside. Service was excellent and the food delicious and served in good order--no long waits. Our melted cheddar sandwiches with tomato bisque were excellent, and the desserts were as always superb. Good COVID precautions were in place; we felt safe. Can't wait to go back.
Excellent food in a fine-dining yet homey setting. Felt very COVID-safe as well on their patio with heaters.
Excellent, unpretentious service.
This is a quaint restaurant. Staff friendly and attentive. Never been there before.
Chose it as it is very near the Mondavi Center. Food was very good. Only demerit based on the Squash Soup was served almost room temp. In spite of that, we would definitely consider going there again.
The food and service at Mustard Seed are always excellent!!
The owners are hands on wonderful. They and the staff create a warm and comfortable experience. The menu is simple but there is depth and thought to the dishes which make them interesting intriguing. The wine list offers a variety of strong selections which are balanced and true "food wines" that pair nicely with the menu.
There is no wonder this little gem was voted the best restaurant in Yolo County.
Highly recommend and will make it point to re-visit anytime I am in the area.
Excellent food and great service! Looking forward for next time.
Everything and everyone excelled. Unfortunately, we sat behind the most talkative, over sharing person who had no filter. Not the restaurant’s fault. In the plus side for the restaurant we needed to order multiple bottles of wine because of said ‘Chatty Kathy’
This was probably my 5-6 time going to The Mustard Seed. I've always enjoyed the ambiance and the food is good too. They could update their menu, if I were to criticize anything at all. But even with that, I will be back.
All was good as it should be at this price point but, when my wife request the duck breast done medium well and it is served rare fully plated sliced and in sauce it was disheartening. Our mistake for not sending it back.
Delightful in every way.
Small food and not a great value. It may be a trendy place but I found neither the food, the surroundings, nor the service were anything to write home about
Delightful setting, cozy atmosphere, service attentive. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.
Parking can be a challenge but we all found spots within walking distance.
Consistently excellent. New menu has a wonderful seared Ahi tuna dish you need to try... Always friendly and professional service.
We loved our meal and the ambiance! Great for an intimate dinner.
Service was very customer oriented; eager to please.
Took my 100 year old mom out to dinner. She absolutely loved their roasted tomato soup with puff pastry on top. I always love their duck breast dish!
took a long time for the dinner to come out
Wonderful experience! Definitely a regular stop for dining when in Davis.
Nice, special occasion place to dine. Highly recommend for freshness and quality of food, ambience and wait staff.
This was a wonderful find in Davis. Delicious steak and some of the best service we’ve had at any restaurant! A bit light on vegetarian options if that matters
Delicious food, wonderful service and great atmosphere on the patio. We love this place for special occasions!
This is my go to place with my wife for dinner dates. Yes, it is not cheap, but the food is amazing and the service excellent.
Wonderful food and service! Our waiter, Ken, did a perfect job! Outdoor seating was warm and comfortable! Had the absolute best lobster gnocchi of my life and a gorgeous steak!! Felt welcomed and was provided impeccable service and food!
Without a doubt, best in Davis
Really delicious food. Tomato bisque soup is a must. Ribeye and lamb were delicious.
It's a charming location in Davis and a creative space. The menu items were varied enough, wine list was limited but quite reasonable. Crab cakes were small but delicious as appetizers. Caesar salad average. Entrees were nicely portioned and well-seasoned. The dominant issue was that the service was very rushed and not relaxing or truly attentive at all, from food delivery to the placing of the check at the end; we seemed to be more of a task than welcomed guests. If one orders a frankly expensive steak, a steak knife should either be offered or accompany it, it's not too much attention to detail to figure that out. Dessert was also generously sized and enjoyable. Ultimately, the food is fine but it is overpriced for the product, certainly the service.
Wonderful place I love the food but I draw the line at $46 entrees. I appreciate restaurants need to get back on their feet after Covid but that is very expensive
I had a perfectly cooked duck breast. Delicious! My date had lobster gnocchi which was very tasty. Our server, Ken, was efficient and friendly.
Great Food & service! Our waiter was superb! Great place for dinner before a concert at the Mondavi Center! Thx so much!
