Service was very prompt and professional. Food took a while, but it was prepared perfectly and was very tasty. We will be back next time we're in Idyllwild.

This restaurant has really good food. They do get busy and are a little pricey but worth it. We eat dinner here whenever we are in idyllwild

Our meal at gastrognome was amazing! The chicken cordon bleu was cooked to perfection and the beef stroganoff was among the best I've ever had. We will definitely return to this location next time we're in Idyllwild. I would suggest reservations as it can get...More
