“This is one of those places you dream about!”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

The setting outdoors under the canopy of lighted trees, the fountain in the background, the lush plantings surrounding you, and wonderful food and service made this one of the most memorable places we ever stopped to eat at. I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf (the best ever), garlic broccolini and smashed potatoes. My husband had a wonderful shrimp and pasta dish thats flavor was outstanding. Not to be missed!!

“Good Food, Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We stopped here on the way home from hiking, so we were pretty casual--the outdoor patio, which had live music (singer with guitar), was beautiful and comfortable. I imagine that the inside could be also be suitable for a dressier evening or special occasion. The menu had such a wide list of offerings, including interesting vegetarian entrees, that just about anybody should be able to find something to their liking. The wine list was large yet 100% local (Lake County) -- a nice touch. My lamb noisettes in demi-glace were perfect, tender, and ample. My wife's vegetarian entree (grilled endive and radicchio in pasta) was enjoyed, if not stellar. Service was professional. We'd return when driving through the area again.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Dinner was just okay...clumsily prepared. Not as expected from the menu description but think it was just an off night because many other reviews praised the food.

“Happened upon a good meal”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were driving home from the coast and happened upon this restaurant. It was delightful on the outside and the inside with reclaimed wood from the original Tallman Hotel for the wainscoting. The food was excellent if a little pricy. We had a wonderful time there and checked out the Tallman Hotel next door as well. The man at the desk gave us a tour and it looks beautiful.
