Simply very good food and service but could have more small wineries on the menu taking the area into consideration. If your visiting Paso Robles there is no reason for not going to this nice restaurant.

Pricey but worth it. Had the Osso Bucco. It absolutely melted in my mouth. I was too full for desert but my husband and daughter really enjoyed theirs. Some lovely wines as well.
