Classed as a boutique hotel is apt. It's not 5 star but it's unusual and delightful. We were staying with our 3 grown up children. Our rooms were great with fabulous views. We ate in the restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinner. No meal disappointed although as our first stop from the uk we were surprised by the prices. Fabulous... More

This incredible experience is more than a meal. Each course I'd cooked for you by the chef who explains the story of each, the ingredients,and each course is accompanied by its own wine. Exquisite food, good wine and entertainment, a unique experience.

Had several breakfasts, lunches and dinners here, and enjoyed each of these. The views of the Central Valley and San Jose are superb, and there are several delightful wines. Excellent coffee and very good fish options.

The food was really quite good, and the service excellent. I had a chicken breast, which was quite tasty, and my wife had an arugula salad, also quite good. Portions were not generous; more of a European [healthy] sizing. Everybody at the table was quite happy with their meal, and the specials of the day seemed quite special, with a... More

Great experience in wonderful ambiance with some upscale bar offerings and lots of romantic tables overlooking the coffee plantation and in the evening the entire valley and the lights of San Jose for a background. Usually not crowded and they offer a tour of the coffee operation in the afternoons. The food is average at best and the service adequate.... More

I really do not want to get into details, but we will not be back anytime soon. The service was friendly but not good. The food was okay, but no where near great. Some of the... More
