Some will label this place expensive, but the food quality and service justify the price. They have excellent higher end options: Wild Boar, steaks, chops and Sea Bass. Also, there is high quality risotto and some Mexican influenced seafood options. You can make the drive to Downtown LA or Pasadena for similar quality, but it would be much more expensive.

Very good short ribs, terrible hamburgers. Food hit and miss. On the expensive side. Have tried it five times. Stick with the short ribs

My husband had the Boneless Beef Short Ribs with their Signature Mac & Cheese and 'to die for' deep fried Brussel Sprouts, no need for a knife here...I had the Chicken with Jasmine Rice and Curry Sauce which was indescribably delicious (don't know what spices Chef Manny used but...

but kind of on the expensive side! This is definitely a celebration restaurant. The dishes we had were quite tasty. The scallops on mashed potatoes were phenomenal, but I thought really expensive. $29.00 for four scallops on four individual dollops of mash with four asparagaus spears. Dessert was excellent and enough to share, wine by the glass was fairly priced... More

We had read the reviews from other diners, so we know what to expect. The food was very good to excellent and the service was very good as well. The chef owner came to our table to greet us, which was a nice added touch. We were expecting a more upscale ambiance, but it was relatively casual. That was fine... More

What a wonderful surprise, it's so nice to find quality & innovative food in Covina! In the past your only choices for an establishment like this was to travel to Pasadena or other far flung environs. We shared two appetizers, calamari & mussels; the calamari had a wonderful Asian dipping sauce & the mussels were swimming in a buttery Chardonnay... More

An eclectic menu full of fusion opportunities await you. The fare is excellent, wine selection is good with some special selections. The Bistro Cadillac Margarita was an excellent choice for a per dining drink experience. Service was attentive but not over bearing. All in all a pleasant surprise in downtown Covina.
