We showed up on a very busy Saturday night without a reservation and Owen was very accommodating. I have to say this was our third stop as everything had at least an hour wait. So I wasn’t expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. I...More

Hi HealthyEating, Thank you so much for your review! To respond to your one point about the Brussels Sprouts... I think the busboy who spoke to you was misinformed, as we actually only use GMO Free California Rice Bran Oil in our Brussels Sprouts unless...More

Hi Fineday, I want to apologize for your experience Christmas Eve. You're right that there's no excuse for your food taking so long on any night, let alone an important holiday. I also apologize for not getting a chance to speak to you directly on...More

Solo dining, in town for business. Was not disappointed in my choice of the Gravenstein Grill. Ordered the duck confit, and was very pleased indeed. Perfectly cooked, flavorful, and served with braised red cabbage and herbed spaetzle. Great pairings, complimentary flavors. Some of the best...More

Thank you for your feedback! Definitely enjoy the risotto while you can, we've had wild foraged Porcini mushrooms featured in it for the past two weeks, and it's really something special while the season lasts (which is not nearly long enough!)
