Food is very tasty. I think the highlight goes to the chicken finger for kids which was much bigger than expected. I hope they... keep like that because my tinny one loved it. The beet salad with chicken was good ( the chicken skin was crispy and verycrunchy), just the portion size was a bit small. The black cod rice was good, but there was too much mint and it overpoweredall other ingredients. Read more

11-13-2022 – Went with a couple of friends I started out with Green Flash (Like a Margarita but spicier and better). A friend... has Gin/Tonic and liked that the tonic (Fever Tree) came on the side. We shared Sourdough Parker House Rolls (served warm withbutter). Highly recommend as not many places give warm/hot bread. The Whipped Black Sesame Seed Dip can be skipped (nothing towrite home about). The Gnocchi (lobster), Sake Marinated Cod and Diver Scallops were outstanding. The serving size for scallopsseemed awfully small (3) even though it was listed under Mains. We ordered two desserts (Lemon Cake and Butterscotch pudding)and they were both great. The place seemed a little deserted, but I guess understandable as it was a Sunday night. The staffwas very attentive. Would like to come again in the day and may make a spa day out of the trip. On a whole a lovely experience.Good fun was had by all. Read more

Gorgeous restaurant. Went for breakfast. The drive was totally worth it. Chose a seat outside with a view of the pool, and a... water fire pit next to the table. Service was excellent. Food was amazing. Ordered chilaquiles Rojas, so utterly delicious.Presentation was beautiful, definitely wished we had shared because portions were very generous. Tortillas were crisp, saucewas just the right amount of spicy and the the eggs were golden fluffy pillows of deliciousness, with ripe creamy avocadoslices. Also tried a side of smashed potatoes, which we did share, crispy and perfectly seasoned. Will definitely return nexttime we are in wine country. Read more

Cocktails were very good, corn soup delicious, hamachi crudo the very best we’ve ever had (seriously, get it!), firm and tasty... shrimp cocktail, the freshest salad I’ve had at a restaurant, an interesting take on Spanish octopus with SE Asian andSingaporean influences that was excellent, followed by an okay piece of halibut and a perfectly done steak. Solbar is highlyrecommended! Oh, and the wines were good, too. Read more

The atmosphere and service was impeccable! Great view of the pool and and nicely shaded patio. Very relaxing and the server gave... a superb wine recommendation. I really wanted to give 5 stars but the lobster roll totally let me down. There were huge chunksof lobster which was amazing! But the herb aïoli completely overpowered the lobster. All I tasted was herbs… and the rollwasn’t even a roll just a toasted slice of bread. While the bread was very tasty it made it pretty difficult to eat; it was adefinite fork and knife situation. On the plus side the fries were crispy and well seasoned. Read more

The food was very good and beautifully presented. We had great service. It was well paced without feeling inattentive. And the... wine was poured from our half bottle at a perfect place - quickly enough that our glasses were never empty but not so heavilythat the bottle ran out before we finished our food. Read more
