Stopped in for dinner on a nice evening and sat outside. The patio area is small, but super quaint and well shaded with large umbrellas. The patio seating area is clean, with table linens and seat cushions. Our servers were very attentive, although the food was just ok. We ordered the calamari, which we informed the server that they were chewy and tough but they didn't offer to take it back or remove from our bill. We ate them anyway as we were pretty hungry and hoping for the rest of the food to be a better experience. The menu is fairly limited but we ordered an array of different items; burger, salads, fries, and ahi tartare. Salads are hard to get wrong, so they tasted good and the greens were fresh, and the burger was average. The ahi tartare was tasty. This was an average dining experience but very overpriced. For 3 of us we spent $130.

When we are celebrating a family function, we always choose the Independent in Placerville, California.

This is a fine dining restaurant with excellent steaks and seafood. The service is exceptional and the quality of food is without peer in our area.

The Skirt Steak is my favorite and the truffle macaroni and cheese is a can’t miss treasure.

This is a must-go experience for fine dining and libations!

Drove here from Lake Tahoe after sightseeing the mountains. First impressions were, " heck, I must be in the wrong part of town". It did not appear this area would be conducive for restaurant traffic. Wrong! Don't miss this place. I ordered the French Dip, my wife ordered a salad with grilled chicken. Excellent! And the bartender was generous too! But most of all, the service was outstanding. Very attentive. Will definitely return if we're ever back in the area.

The Cary House recommended this spot for dinner and we were very happy they did. We both ordered the ribeye that was perfectly cooked. One side was macaroni and cheese, the other Yukon mashed potatoes., Fresh veggies on the side and the steak was finished with a crispy onion topping and delicious demi glace reduction. Good wine list. Portions were very large and hard to finish., The desserts looked awesome. Especially the bread pudding with ice cream. Maybe next time we will order a more modest entree so we can enjoy dessert. Our server was great! Would definitely recommend the Independant.
