“Santa Cruz Diamond in the Rough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

I haven't been here in awhile but sorry to have stayed away so long. Ypu should try their happy hour on thethe patioSFgate under the majestic oaks with a spectacular view of Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz. Dinner was good but you are really there because of the beautiful setting, views and historical location similar to Shawdowbrook. The staff were awesome. You can eat in the formal dining area or the relaxing bar. They also have buffets on Easter, Thanksgiving and holidays when you dont feel like cooking for the masses. Check it out.

“Large menu tastefully prepared and served”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2013 via mobile

Even though the rain made the view less than perfect, we enjoyed great seafood, sand dabs, beef stroganoff, prime rib. The meat portions were large as well as well prepared and presented. My French onion soup was excellent as were the salads. Waitress was attentive and thoughtful. Goodselection of single malts and wines. The entire staff, bartender and waiters, were welcoming. A delightful dinning room made conversation easy.
Parking was easy. I just wish the rain had allowed to enjoy the view over Santa Cruz.

“MUCH IMPROVED”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

Participate in quarterly meetings here, always with dinner afterwards. Food is much improved and is actually very good. Definitely worth giving the restaurant another try.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

We have eaten here several times and have always had a good meal and excellent service. Very nice setting and very quiet. Good wine selection. Staff is friendly and efficient. Beautiful setting in early evening.

PS: Great place for a wedding!

“Lovely evenings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

This beautiful setting can't be improved on and to date, the food has exceeded our expectations. Beautifully served, proportions perfect, wonderful flavors, fresh, varied choices. We have been back 3 times in one month. Each time we had to try something different so we could share. Almost hate to give it rave reviews because we want to keep this place for only the locals who know where it's hidden.
