New restaurant at this location, 4/27/2010

Average food, Bad service, 5/27/2009
Reviewer: Mike McBirney from Santa Barbara, CA
Had to wait to be greeted when we entered. Dining room was noisy due to the bar TV being too loud. Meal prep took at least 20 minutes. The waiter never checked back to see how we were doing, and never cleared our plates. He brought our bill and processed my credit card, and we left while the dirty plates were still on the table. Food was mediocre, and portions were small for a family restaurant. Not recommended.

1st visit in several years and was very disappointed, 11/12/2008

I joined a couple of friends here for a special luncheon and was excited to see my favorite sandwich, Monte Cristo, on the menu so I enthusiastically ordered it. What a letdown to find their version of this sandwich was simply very thin and skimpy portion of slices of what seemed like Oscar Mayer ham and cheese that tasted more like jack cheese than what should be swiss. At a nice restaurant like this, I was hoping for an authentic Monte Cristo, which should be CARVED ham and turkey along with earthy, yummy swiss cheese. The finishing touches should be a dusting of powdered sugar and a nice little dish of fresh preserves (I got little packets of jam--so tacky). The bread was so-so but a thicker variety would have been a better choice. The service and atmosphere were nice but I need better food to return.
