I have eaten their quite often as the food is unbeatable. I had my husband birthday there for 30 people and it was great. Everyone at the party wants a rerun.

Prime rib was large, flavorful, beautifully cooked; very good. Rack of lamb was also delicious, though a bit too large for me, with delicious sides. very good first courses. nice atmosphere, great staff.

Meals were awesome. Full of flavor. Nice decor, not overly embellished. Great service. On the higher end for pricing of meals but well worth it. Would highly recommend.

Each person in our group ordered something different and we were all extremely pleased with what we received. Unfortunately i would say it was good for intimate dinners as the place was really loud. Decent wine list.

We ate here on our first night in the area and it was a great experience. We thought the tuna tartare was divine and also enjoyed the fried octopus and beef tacos. Excellent service and the decibel level was very manageable.

The street signage in this area is not the best, we arrived late for our reservation. The hostess was able to seat us after some consulting of the seating chart. Thank God for that! I would not have wanted to miss eating here. We found...More

I really don't know for sure. But it's worth asking. This is a fairly large restaurant with a back area that adjoins the main restaurant and private patio that would be ideal for a private party. Don't know if they have... More

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.
