We took my Mother-in-law to the Depot for lunch on a Saturday. The food was delicious; everyone enjoyed their meal. But our only seating option was the bar, and they were unprepared and under staffed to serve there. The tables were only half set in...More

Beautiful restored building and attentive staff. Similar menu to It's flagship restaurant Vintage Press but not prepared as well and simpler sides. Sea bass was overcooked. Pork chops nicely done. Great deserts and wine. Worth another visit.

I ate here with a group of ladies. It is fine dining as far as Visalia goes. It had good service even though they could have used a lot more help for our large group. I had chicken crepes and they were very tasty.

The Depot is full of local history. This was originally a passenger depot for a commuter railway. The ambiance is great! I have never been disappointed in the quality of food or drink.
