Our server Mike was very friendly and made some great recommendations for appetizers. Our entrees came out shortly after, which were truly fantastic—I had the ribeye and my wife had the roasted chicken. This is definitely the best restaurant we've been to in Atascadero, and we live here!

I attended their "soft opening" with some friends after a recent Wine & Art event in town, and the food was absolutely phenomenal. Everything tasted great and we left feeling like we'd had a terrific meal. The staff was all very kind, friendly and fun; I think this place is going to absolutely shine.
