I had the gnocchi with crab cakes to start. The server was young, but working on his wine pairing skills - so we went back and forth with a few samples as he helped me decide on a wine. The crab cakes were super delicious. The gnocchi was prepared differently than I have had them before and were a little mushy. However, the taste was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

Despite the ratings-inflation that seems to have afflicted Tripadvisor and other such services, this place really deserves its high rating. This is one of the few fine-dining experiences we really enjoyed while travelling through California. Many other places charged similar prices, but did not compare to this place in terms of quality of food and service.

We were a group of four - all our meals were excellent (I would skip the bruschetta though which is a fancy variant that doesn't really work). Duck, mushroom soup, steak and fish of the day were all excellent. The wine pairings suggested by the waiter were also excellent.

Or first trip in to Maseline's. The service was very good. The menu diverse enough to find what you want. Entrees included lamb, filet mignon, duck, rabbit, seafood and a veg offering. I had polenta with veggies. It was really nice. Hubby got the gumbo. He wasn't a fan of it. It was basically rice with a gumbo-esque gravy. The seafood in it was good but he would have rather had more sausage because he said it all tasted like beef. So I would give them a B- for food and an A for service. The food is good but not imaginative in any way. A little basic for our tastes. We will probably try another place next time.

We weren't sure what to expect when we found the tables nestled amongst the bottles of wine that Madeline's retails during the day, but it was highly recommended so we went for it. Wow, the meal was awesome, I normally don't order filet mignon - you can get that anywhere - but it was perhaps the best filet I have ever had. Awesome. My wife's fish was equally amazing. And the service was outstanding. Very attentive without being overbearing. And best of all, the prices were very reasonable. This one is a "don't miss" restaurant.
