The heart and inspiration for Granada is the beloved and pre-existing Granada Bistro. This space has been renovated and re-imagined in industrial chic design, serving farm-to-table ingredients sourced from Central Coast farmers and purveyors. Dishes are inspired by Mediterranean culture, French and Spanish cuisine. Small plates, charcuterie and the freshest local seafood, meats, and produce are complemented by an eclectic wine list including Spanish and French selections, and a range of the Central Coast’s finest artisan wine producers<br /><br /><br /><br />

"We visited the restaurant for the first time. We had their brunch menu and were able to sit outside in their nice patio. The food was very good with some interesting changes to some traditional brunch items as well as more unusual items such as their very tasty version of a Cuban sandwich. The place had a very nice and modern feel without being too obnoxiously loud as some places are. It is part of a hip looking hotel. We enjoyed it very much and plan to go back in the future and are looking forward to trying dinner or a normal lunch."

Mediterranean Italian Cuisine with hints of the French Riviera. Another creation of Executive Chef Frederic Perrier (AURA Brasserie, Hoggs n' Chicks) with the same standards seen and tasted in Chefs other restaurants. Coco Pazzo features fresh everything!, Specials that change daily, a professional staff and an ambiance that is meant to soothe. If you are in a hurry, we can take care of you. However, Chef really wants you to Relax...order a fantastically priced bottle of wine, really enjoy and 'taste' your food, save room for a homemade tiramisu perhaps (or plenty others to choose)...and Relax!

"This was a very nice restaurant with good food located in an out of the way location. The interior is nice especially the front room. All the dishes we had were tasty and were traditional with hints of French influence. We had a nice bottle of affordably priced French wine. We plan to return."

La Casa del Caballo is a new and exciting fine dining Mexican style steakhouse in the heart of the Montrose District. We specialize in prime and Certified Angus beef prepared in an authentic Saltillo Mexico style. Our main focus is a distinct and personalized top of the line service. We also offer other delectable dishes such as Coctel de Camaron made with colossal Wild Caught Shrimp from Mexico in a spicy hot authentic Mexican style cocktail sauce. We round out our menu with Lamb T-Bone, Veal Chop, chicken and a variety of seafood. <br><br />Don't forget to visit our cozy lounge on the second floor where we offer private dining for your special events. Don't forget you can request our Captain's Table located in the center of the spiral staircase lines with the Artisan Hand Cut "Flaming" tile. We offer a well stocked Leather covered bar and a reasonably priced wine list for your selection. The valet parking is complimentary, so come out and be taken care of at La Casa del Caballo.

"The food was very good and there are a lot more interesting and tasty items besides steak. The tortilla soup was very tasty and different from other versions since this is a North Mexican restaurant. The carnitas steak has an unusual football shape but is tasty and different than normal streaks. There were 4 interesting chilli sauces. Some surprising items were beef Carpaccio and brisket smoked and then braised in the cooking juices and beer. Everything tasted was great and am looking forward to returning to try other things such as their enchiladas. The service was excellent and the place is very nicely decorated. I ate in the downstairs restaurant area but there is an upper floor large deck area and bar that looks interesting."
