I have now eaten here twice in the last two months. Both times were fabulous. The first was on a Tuesday evening and it was busy but not crowded and the same with last Saturday evening. The noise level is really manageable. You can actually hear the people across the table from you. The servers were really good both times. And the portions were appropriate to the price (as opposed to three bites for $$$). The Antipasto Misto for $15.50 worked for 3 of us the first time and 4 the second time. It's more authentic than many I've had at other places in the Bay Area. The fish dishes were all excellent and different the second time I went. My friends really loved the risotto and lamb shank. Both times we shared desserts and they were all delicious and changing due to what's available. Recommendations from staff were helpful and educational. This restaurant is tucked back off from the street with lovely gardens in front and lots of parking in the evening. Definitely worth a try!
Our experience was certainly better than many of the other reviewers. Thinking we weren't that hungry and knowing we were too tired to go very far, we decided to just stay at our hotel (The Monaco) and have dinner at the connected Grand Cafe. Thinking that it was going to be heavy French, we planned to eat light. We were pleasantly surprised! We had a three beet salad and a little gem salad to start and they were both really good. Fresh ingredients and a very light, but tasty dressing. We followed with the trout which was done perfectly and surrounded by crisp snap peas and little potatoes and a tuna salad nicoise. The tuna dish was huge and plenty for dinner. All ingredients were crisp and fresh.
We enjoyed the meal so much that we also had breakfast there the next morning. Again, all very good. In particular, the smoked salmon eggs Benedict was delicious. The salmon was sliced paper thin (which I really appreciate) and there was a light touch on the sauce over the perfectly cooked soft boiled eggs. The potatoes were wonderful as was the little lettuce salad. Two eggs over easy with crisp bacon, fruit and French bread for the other person completed a great Sunday brunch.
Service for both meals was fine and everyone was friendly. The decor is really interesting. I loved the sculpture!
Breakfast was just OK. We had two cups of coffee, one million dollar bacon (which is very gooey and sweet) with scrambled eggs and tomatoes. And the scramble with habanero infused onion which was very good. The hash browns were awful. Not hot and they sat on the plate like an old rug. For $37 including tip, we would not go back.
i went to dr. hurray for orthodics (sp)tics a few years ago and had a very bad experience.
i had pain that i think affected my knee and back adversely. when i talked to dr.
hurray he indicated that i was just getting old. i sought a second opinion and learned that dr. hurray's orthodics were too hard. they made me feel like i was pounding my feet when i walked. new orthodics and physical therapy have helped me heal.
