One of the most interesting thing I've been told in this recent trip in California is that this restaurant was built by the Atari founder for his friend.
It is a nice restaurant, with a very good bar that offer a kind of upper class environment.
Food is good and I strongly suggest who visit this place to listen to the special of the day, generally very good.
I had a dinner based on fish, an excellent salmon salad and a clamshelf broth and it was really good.
A good list of desserts as well to make your night sweeter.

This is a very friendly place to dine. The moment you enter the restaurant you are greeted with a friendly good evening. The menu is not large but they always have a special and the selections are always prepared perfectly. This is a place for business people at lunch, special parties are arranged for holidays, and a great place for you and your wife for an intimate dinner.

Enjoyed a seat at the relaxing bar and had a fine class of Red along with the Goat Cheese salad and Ravioli. Jimmy the bartender took good care of me.

Had a business team dinner here. Food was outstanding and varied. Nice menu with lots of choices. I had the venison in plum wine stir fry, outstanding! We shared a number of appetizers, all very nice. Goat cheese salad also very good. Not many resteraunts in this area with this quality of food. Only downside was the price, a bit high.... Ambience is o.k. Reasonable but better for larger groups, not super for a couple.

Not often I've had an excellent dinner worthy of raving about, but the food at the L&C was superb. I had the lamb which was outstanding - I mean, seriously outstanding. The portions of meat were large and not the normal couple of ribs. The glaze was full of flavour and rich without being overpowering. The greens and accompanying items were very well done and presented.

Decent beer and wine selection also. Will definitely return.
