"We dined at Currant before a performance at the Spreckels Theater and had a wonderful dinner. Many items on the menu are unique or interesting variations on more traditional fare. We plan to return later in the year when we can enjoy the sidewalk dining area."

Highly acclaimed chef Thomas Keller (of The French Laundry) is behind this beautiful Yountville restaurant. Enjoy excellent French bistro cuisine in a dining room offering wonderful Parisian ambiance. <br /><br />We invite you to visit Bouchon Bakery, an authentic, country-style boulangerie located next door Bouchon Bistro. The Bakery serves traditional French breads and pastries and is open from 7am - 7pm daily.

 Buona Tavola - San Luis Obispo
Buona Tavola - San Luis Obispo
For over 18 years Antonio Varia has been delighting the palates of the Central Coast with his inventive yet traditional Northern Italian cuisine. Using only the freshest local and imported ingredients, Buona Tavola offers a romantic garden setting to enjoy fine dining lunch and dinner. The esteemed Zagat Survey gave Buona Tavola the highest ratings of any restaurant in the county, calling it "Superb dining with great wine in a charming setting... one of the best between Los Angeles and San Francisco." The loyal staff at Buona Tavola still consists of more than a handful of the original opening crew, and as you walk through the front door you truly become a part of the family. The skill that comes with hard-won years of experience and the area's freshest seasonal ingredients are apparent in every dish served. Plus the main ingredient comes from Antonio himself: "I cook with love!"

"Italian food is not usually our first choice, but this restaurant was a cut above the normal. Food was well prepared and the menu offered interesting interpretations of standard fare. We were very pleased."

"Delicious and creatively prepared and presented food. You could drop $2500 just on wine, but we opted for the inexpensive bottle that was still very good. Lovely place, attentive and courteous wait staff. Go here if you want to splurge."

We are a small family run cafe in the heart of Sonoma's square and the beautiful wine country. We change our menu daily to utilize what is available and at it's best. We love to support our local farmers and winemakers. All of our produce, meat, poultry and fish come from farms, fisheries, and ranches guided by principals of sustainability.<br />If you do not see what you are looking for or need a table for 8 or more give us a call at 707-933-8160.

"Excellent service in a very nice restaurant. Food was creatively prepared from fresh produce available daily. Duck confit was wonderful as was the accompanying sausage. Meals were large. Menu changes daily depending on what is available fresh locally. Try it, you'll like it."

Welcome to Joe Greensleeves! We are located in the heart of downtown Redlands, in the historic Phinney Block building. Since opening in 1982, Greensleeves has been a favorite destination for those looking to celebrate a special occasion, conduct business or simply indulge in a wonderful meal. A change in ownership finds the restaurant family owned and operated. In February 2011, longtime customers and Redlands natives, Bryan Briggs and brother J.R “Jimmy”Briggs, Jr. took over the helm. The brothers have sought to improve upon an established institution and bring their passion for food and wine along with a hands-on approach to assuring the satisfaction of their guests. Executive Chef, Guillermo “Memo” Mateo has spent 16 years in the kitchen of Joe Greensleeves and works to create an outstanding selection of steaks, seafood and pastas using only the finest and freshest ingredients.

Fresh, Inventive Mediterranean and Iberian Cuisine in the heart of the Sonoma Valley Wine Country. Seafood and Portuguese Cuisine are our specialties. We offer a unique variety of fresh local and imported seafood specials daily including whole fish. The seafood selections on our menu are complimented by a variety of meat dishes ranging from the popular Pork Tenderloin stuffed with almonds, olives and figs to the, hard to find, Tripe Porto Style. Many of these dishes come steaming hot out of the wood-burning oven and fill the dining room with the exotic aromas of true Mediterranean cuisine. The menu reflects the commitment of Chef and Owner Manuel Azevedo to creating the unique culinary delights of his native Portugal and its neighbors. LaSalette Restaurant is proudly one of Zagat Surveys top rated restaurants in Sonoma. See our web site for the complete menu and a look inside our dining room, which features an open kitchen and decor that sends you back in time to old Lisbon.

"The restaurant was packed on New Year's Eve, but the service was still attentive and the regular menu contained a lot of nice options. Our pork loin was over done, but the lamb loin was perfect."

"Took our friends from Vermont this time and they also loved the Bleu Boheme. We were seated in the dining room near a large birthday party, but the noise level was still low enough to hear conversations at our table :-) Food as always was great and we all thought the perfect meal would be to by one bowl of each kind of mussels on the menu."
