We decided to stay on the grounds of the resort instead of venturing out. It was a lovely meal. I started with the Coleman Farms Lettuce and main was Morro Bay Black Cod. No pics but the cod was delicious, so fresh! Dessert was marscapone...More

This restaurant is amazing. Had the Jidori chicken and it was by far the best chicken dish I ever had. Dessert was great too. The thing that made this restaurant even better was the service was amazing.
