Great place for Valentine's Day. Eat under the blue sky surrounded by pine trees. A couple of meals with wine. Gorgeous day.

We waited 40 minutes for our order of a chicken sandwich and 'baked' onion soup. When we complained it finally arrived and we're told that shouting at the kitchen had worked. The onion soup was inedible. Mostly thick slices of bread and little soup. The bread was not toasted but was covered in some sort of cheese which had just... More

Was passing through needed some lunch - unfortunately we chose this place. Service was friendly, getting our food .... took longer than expected even after we were told it will be out soon. - guess my definition of soon is different. Ordered the Cuban sandwich - I know I'm not in Miami, but really!!! One thin slice of ham, a... More

Went there for lunch and split a burger. Very good! The fries were excellent too. Ask about the big painting over the fireplace. There is something hidden in the tree trunk. Very nice staff and good drinks.

Gastrogome was my choice for an early Valentine's Day dinner with my wife as we visited Idyllwild for the first time. We both ordered drinks, peppered filet mignon, sides, and dessert. Food and service were top notch. Definitely would recommend and will return on the next trip.

Didn't meet our expectations overall. None of our food was properly hot (potato wedges, French onion soup, tea). Focaccia had none of the expected chewy texture or rosemary. On the other hand, they kindly accommodated my request for avocado toast, even though it wasn't on the menu.

Nice rustic spot that serves, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We sat across from a beautiful fireplace. The bread served with lunch was delicious. Had the chicken salad - excellent. Very friendly service. Can't wait to come back - next time for breakfast.

We owned a cabin in Idyllwild for 12 years and loved the Gastrognome when we wanted a special meal. Sadly this last visit the food was a disaster. They need a chef makeover. The staff was friendly as usual but the trout I had tasted fried and burned instead of sautéed and the calamari my husband had was inedible. Hope... More
