Stopped by for a drink at this fabulous local gem. We ended up having the Niçoise salad, the ahi tuna poke and a mud pie. Eric Jolly our bartender made my husband a fabulous ginger vodka drink. Excellent view and ambience.

Still amazing food friendly staff nice ambiance. I loved the filet million and their amazing cheese cake. The shrimp pasta was very good too. We got prawns rolled with bacon as the appetizer.

Due to lateness of our arrival, ate at Rock Room (the informal, late-night option at Shadowbrook). Good food, nice bar with lots of drink options. Great place to eat in Capitola. Recommend.

A beautiful dining room set in a hillside. The food was fabulous. We started with warm Brie in puff pastry on jalapeño jelly. We had gnocchi with black truffle drizzle and short ribs. It was perfection.
