I love this place - I've been there a number of times and it simply has the best food, service, and ambiance of any restaurant in the area. Make sure you make a reservation as it can get crowded. The Prime Rib, the Veal Chop,...More

We had a fabulous filet mignon and the best potatoes au gratin I have ever tasted. They even brought us a fabulous mud pie on the house for our celebration. Cute bar, too

The food is excellent. The service impeccable. And a bread basket to die for (and it's hard to get excited about a bread basket!) We had seafood but the steaks and other items looked equally mouthwatering. Winner!

I agree that you should call the restaurant. I do know the owners are very committed to farm to table and employ their own dessert chef, so should be able to supply you with ingredients. But definitely call with specific... More

There's an area in the back you could probably use, but call them to make sure.

With a fresh, de rigueur exterior of barn-red paint, the interior expresses the warmth of a local tavern, using clean lines and a rustic feel. Accented with oak, restored branded wood beams, a white paneled ceiling and wrought iron lighting, the L-shaped room is refreshed, with higher ceilings and massive glass windows that open the space. As before, there is an open display kitchen observing the chefs at work. Newly created for the restaurant is a glass-enclosed wine room flanking the dining room that co-exists with two wood-burning fireplaces preserved from the original Red Barn. Firewood is supplied by the Agin Brothers, the family that has serviced the Nichols family with seasoned wood for ten years. Two wrought iron and rope chandeliers, hand crafted by local blacksmith Hans Duus, illuminate the room and are lighted with replicas of vintage Edison light bulbs, with more of the Edison-styled glass globes accenting the room. The walls are decorated with historical photographs of Los Rancheros Visitores, the club of local horsemen and ranchers dating back to 1929. Salvaged during the construction was wallpaper discovered under layers of paint and paneling, beautifully illustrated with dancing girls, pistols, playing cards and saloons, now preserved, framed, and gracing the dining room walls. JC's handsome bar was created by locals Scott and Chris Bruhn who used a felled pine tree salvaged from Figueroa Mountain to form the expansive bar top.
