Went to Black Cat Bistro based on other reviews. We were not disappointed. The pork chop( which is a seasonal dish) was out of this world and the parsnip puree it rested on was unbelievable. The "Common Ground" Zin was great. The whole meal, service, wait staff were terrific. Will return if we are in the area.

Had a room to ourselves and was very quiet but older building. The Scallops with currants were good; The Po de Creme dessert was very good.
The Harmony Cabernet wine is quite good and locally grown.
Dinner cost just over $100 and was good, although for the price I've had better.

We made a trip to San Simeon for the weekend and made a reservation in advance. We arrived about 15 minutes early for our 7:45pm reservation. We were seated promptly and all the staff were amazing.

Such a great menu too! We were so stuffed from our late lunch we weren't able to have dessert but they looked amazing!

If it matters - they don't have a full bar, just beer and wine.

This place was on a quick stopover and by recommendation from our B&B owner. The service was the best we experienced on our tour - knowledgeable, professional and not pushy. The food was really good although a bit on the expensive side - but worth it.

We were welcomed by the new owner and she made sure that we had an excellent evening of quality food prepared by her husband the chef. They are working hard from the start to get everything right and they are doing it right.
