ALWAYS terrific in all respects. “Best crab cakes I’ve ever had.” “Fantastic gnocchi in Bolognese sauce.” WOW was that pecan/whiskey ice cream good! VERY quiet, easy to talk, responsive service, excellent wine. HIGHEST recommendation.

With the views of the surrounding golf course and the excellent food and service, this is one of the rare restaurants that one could describe as elegant. Total enjoyment!

We attended a wedding tonight and it was so amazing. Beautiful views of monterey bay, a welcome reception in the front where we arrived and then a beautiful ceremony overlooking the ocean on a perfect lawn. The staff was super professional and the bar was top notch. Dinner was good and Vanessa at the bar inside was a great part of our night.
