    The food is amazing! Four of us had dinner together, and each person ordered a different dish. We all loved everything! The waitress, Perry, was so attentive and helpful, and all of the staff were very friendly.

    We had a wonderful experience. Food was delicious and very generous. Our server Teresa was friendly and amazing in every way. The food came out quickly and was perfectly cooked and the booths are cozy yet spacious. We also really enjoyed the live music and dancing. Cant wait to return!!

    Wow. Absolutely fabulous food - clearly made from the freshest ingredients. Just so flavorful, well presented and super tasty. Menu was a little daunting only because we don’t know too much about Peruvian cuisine but there’s so much we want to try so we’ll definitely be back. Ceviche was great, the grilled Parmesan scallops were a treat and I was surprised how potato heavy my sea bass was - but so good! My daughter had a seafood bouillabaisse which was just amazing and my wife had the fried rice which blew us away.

    I ordered the fish sandwich, no bread, and my husband had the pastrami sandwich on a French roll. We always split a salad w/bleu. Food is consistently excellent as well as the servers.

    Dinner out with our CP student and his friends. This was our first time at Bear & The Wren, but we had heard good things. Great environment for visiting and catching up with everyone. We ordered a variety of pizzas -- all tasty and unique. The service was terrific. Only patio dining was available, but outdoor heaters kept us plenty warm.

Discover California Central Coast

The California Central Coast is home to beautiful beaches, and it is also a major source of fresh seafood for local restaurants. Enjoy a locally caught Cajun-style Albacore tuna steak, panko-crusted and topped with wasabi coleslaw and sliced avocado. Elsewhere, you may prefer the halibut, which is in season year-round in the area and guaranteed to be fresh. Order it lightly cooked in lemon and butter, sauteed in wine, butter, garlic, and capers and served over pasta or with potatoes. The coast has more than seafood, as residents and visitors can relish a California beet salad made with sliced beets over butter lettuce and liberally sprinkled goat cheese dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
