I am so happy that we stopped here that this is the first time I feel compelled to write a review even before leaving the restaurant. We had three pizzas, all very good, but the Mikonos (Greek flavors) was just unforgettable. Good price for the...More

Want fine wine tasting, food & service all in one place? Look no furher. This place has it all. Can be crowded with happy customers weekends but easier midweek. HINT: bar seating is just as fun but twice as easy to access.

We had lunch at Los Olivos Wine Merchant and Cafe and it was terrific. Several of the group had hamburgers--they said terrific. My Caesar salad was wonderful. Excellent service, good ambiance and just a nice place.

We chose the prix fixe menu. My husband had the (boneless) beef rib, and a week later still praises the wonderfully tender meat. I chose the salmon, nicely cooked, (though I prefer it a little more moist). The dessert included a chocolate brownie and vanilla...More

Even the olive antipasti was great. They brought fresh baked bread and a variety of olives to start. The wine list is great but expensive. Everyone enjoyed their lunches. I was looking at their wines for sale and was given first class information and help...More
