Walking in (a party of 4) without reservations, we thought we might experience a wait. However, a "reservation" had not shown so we were immediately seated in this little jewel of a restaurant. (NOTE: DO make reservations unless you don't mind sitting for a while on the outside bench!)
Although I have enjoyed lunch at "Sparrow" many times, I had not had dinner there in several years. Wow! What I have been missing!
My choice of fresh Monterey Bay salmon was cooked to perfection & presented as though it was an artist's painting on a plate! After my initial joy at the "masterpiece" in front of me, my first bite was no less exciting! Everything on the plate was perfect--from presentation to flavor to freshness. Beautiful!
Everyone in our party of four ordered something different & each person raved about their choice.
The restaurant is small & every table occupied, but it was easy to converse & never were we aware of restaurant noise or the chatter of others. An exception
to so many of today's eateries.
Our waitress was exceptional--
attentive, but not intrusive. The chef & kitchen staff know their craft well.
Aptos is a jewel of a coastal village. Cafe Sparrow is the diamond in the setting!
