Beautiful restored building and attentive staff. Similar menu to It's flagship restaurant Vintage Press but not prepared as well and simpler sides. Sea bass was overcooked. Pork chops nicely done. Great deserts and wine. Worth another visit.

I ate here with a group of ladies. It is fine dining as far as Visalia goes. It had good service even though they could have used a lot more help for our large group. I had chicken crepes and they were very tasty.

The Depot is full of local history. This was originally a passenger depot for a commuter railway. The ambiance is great! I have never been disappointed in the quality of food or drink.

Three of us staggered into this beautiful 1916 former railroad depot after a long, arduous drive from San Francisco. We were tired, thirsty and very hungry but we were about to be totally refreshed and rejuvenated. First was the Depot's ambiance---restful elegance with beautifully set,...More

I've only been here once but when I was it was great. The ambiance of the open fire and surrounds was great particularly on a chilly winters night. The service was good and the food that we had (a selection of appetisers) was delicious. I've...More

This place used to be one of "THE" places to have a nice dinner in town. The owners divorced with the wife taking control and it's gone down hill ever since. Don't waist your time.
