Have eaten here a couple of times and disappointed. Menu sounds great but food lacking. I had the duck confit cassoulet and so dry. It was covered in bread crumbs, why? It ruined an already bad dish. Soup was the highlight. I really want this restaurant to improve. It's cute and food should be good too.

The food was really good, but unfortunately I couldn't go in person (a little too much fun at the wineries earlier that day!), so we got take out. I'm sure the food and experience would've have been even better at the restaurant itself.

My best friend and I enjoyed dinner here on a Tuesday. When we arrived is wasn't too busy so we were seated right away and given a choice of where to sit. Once seated it got busier so service declined a bit but it was okay since we were wanted a mellow evening with not too much interaction form others.... More

Good tomato soup and very good arugale salad. Too bad they forgot the salad (new waiter) and my partner had to eat her soup alone. My partner got a pizza. Good crust with mushrooms and red onions, but way too large. My halibut on meshed carrots could be better if it were a bit less done. The carrots was great.... More

Wonderful dinner with lots of choices for all preferences & appetites. Excellent halibut 3 course special, fine wine flight selection (I had the white). The calamari was fabulous.

We had a delicious meal here with great service. We did not have to wait to be seated. Some of the products you can purchase are great too.

I find this to be a great little place tucked away in darling Glen Ellen. The food is always good. They are clear about gluten free and they allow corkage, so it is a favorite for locals.

This is the 2nd time we've eaten here. Bring your own wine (Sonoma and not one they have on their wine list) and corkage is free. Pizza was good. Love their salads. Good service.

We did an order for take-out so we could go back to our B&B and enjoy the sunset with a bottle of wine and no worries about driving. The food was delish!! We got the truffle fries, fig and arugula salad, polenta, and the duck confit. It was too much food for two of us but hey, we couldn't decide.... More

We drive 1.5 hrs to come enjoy not only the great food but also the casual ambiance. We enjoy the No Reservation, First Come, First Serve policy. I love the no corkage policy and values behind it. But quite frankly, I buy wine at the restaurant. They have a great list. I enjoy being taken on the journey of what... More
