Ambiance: White venetian plaster walls and dark brown leather furnishings blend with modern art by local artists to offer a space that is wine country with a decidedly contemporary feel.

Outside the courtyard offers protected dining with lush plants and a small waterfall adding to the relaxed, “get away from it all” mood.
Cuisine: An all day continuous menu of contemporary small plates, salads, and bar bites featuring locally sourced ingredients with Mediterranean influences. Weekend afternoon tea service will combine pastries and tea sandwiches with a uniquely wine country spin, while Sunday brunch will focus on light fare with Cal Med flair.
