One of the best eating establishments in Sonoma and Napa Counties. We enjoyed dinner in late August 2017, seated outside in a beautifully-landscaped garden atmosphere. Service is outstanding, informal and attentive without being intrusive. Our first courses of gazpacho soup and mussels were outstanding, the broth for the mussels so flavorful we heartily enjoyed soaking it up with homemade bread and rolls. Main courses of halibut and of polenta and vegetables were also superb, local fresh vegetables cooked perfectly.

We sat outside on the patio and it was beautiful, casual and comfortable. Our food was really good, the woman singing had a great voice and added a nice touch, but our waitress was rude and inattentive. We had to open and pour our own wine bottle, ask (and wait quite a while) for a bucket of ice to put the white wine in, and when we asked her to take a picture (we had just gotten married) she said "no, maybe later, I have a lot do to" I understand taking a picture is not her job, but being that we did part of her job (opening and pouring our own wine, getting water from another waiter b/c she was busy chatting with another table, and by the time our ice bucket came that we had to request our warmish wine was already finished) I figured we could ask. It was obvious we just got married and I was still wearing my wedding floral crown and by the time we left the place was empty (not that it was ever that crowded) but we still never got our picture.

Discovered this place on a family trip. Plenty of sunny and shady lounge areas to savor your relaxed tasting. Food was outstanding. Best steak and burger I've had in quite awhile. Strip was as tender as some filets I've had! Salads and veggies were fresh and crisp, and of course the wine was wonderful. The toddler enjoyed the gardens, musicians, saying hello to the dogs, and the giant jenga blocks! Came back 3 times on our trip!

Amazing for lunch. Great food and a great wine list. The staff was warm and knowledgeable and was great at pairing wine to menu items. It's a bit out of the way, but that adds to its charm.
