Superb food, indoor or outdoor dining, and a wine shop around the corner. Maitre d' is Steve, who has a wonderful front of house staff. Miss Aaron, though. The duck confit from the bar menu is amazing!

My wife and I have lived in Carlsbad for the past 16 years and love it. But, we have almost always ended up going south for a dining celebration. That ended two nights ago. For our 50th wedding anniversary, we decided to take a chance...More
George, our water, was excellent. Our rack of lamb $49 was excellent and the kitchen was willing to substitute a side for us. The veal sweetbreads $19 were well sized and very good, but could have used more seasoning. The restaurant has an admirable wine...More
