Very good food and a nice night. Only detractor was the table we sat at felt like we were on a highway. All bar traffic and restaurant traffic walked by it. I guess they set aside the worst table in the restaurant for an Open table reservation. I would recommend just ask to sit at a different table. Paella and chicken were great entrees. Pork belly was excellent as was the wagyu carpaccio.

The food was so mediocre, and even that wouldn’t have been so bad if they had enough help staff to manage the dinner. Our waitress is great but she had too many tables. Likewise they didn’t bus the tables so we’d have used finished plates sitting on our table while two or three various support staff walk by. Not to mention out the gate it really took nearly 40 to 45 minutes to get or food or should I say or appetizers. We were there for nearly 2 hours and most of it was waiting.So maybe the bottom line is I had they served us in a timely matter the mediocre food wouldn’t of been such a big deal but the extra 45 minutes were45 minutes waiting for mediocre food is what really killed the deal.To repeat there’s nothing wrong with our server the problem is and management should’ve known this everything was by reservation so they knew how many people were going to show up Yet they didn’t have enough staff To deal with the customers.

My risotto was wonderful. The added chicken was as moist as can be !
My friend’s pork chop was fabulous and was worthy of a photo.
The non-alcohol fruit drinks were refreshing.
The whole dining experience was up there with the best.
My experience at the French Laundry paled compared to this.

This was a great place for brunch with our mom - outside has plenty of plumbed in heating lamps and the servers were really pleasant and responsive when we were missing cutlery or that cup of coffee. We appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and early seating is quieter and calmer - just right for us.
Some of the menu items may not have been right for us but didn't detract from the experience.

We went to El Dorado for brunch on a quiet Sunday morning. We got the breakfast pizza, which is amazing if you like goat cheese! We also ordered the banana waffles, which were good, but would have been even better if it was bananas foster! Service was nice, and an overall warm and welcoming ambiance!

Food was good, service wasn’t. Waiter was pretty rough around the edges. Told we couldn’t order anything until we knew our order in its entirety (apps, meals, etc). Dishes and silverware were tossed down. Server just didn’t seem to want to be there, definitely took away from our experience.

Great spot for outdoor dining. The breakfast pizza and truffle fries, and fried green tomatoes were delicious. We also ordered the duck confit hash, which was okay but not great.
Their cocktails are really great and very refreshing.

Our waiter, Giorgio, was AMAZING. He had the perfect touch with our group and we all felt welcomed, taken well care of and had a great time. The food was hit or miss - the Roasted Mussels appetizer was incredible as was the Mushroom Risotto.

Two of got the Petaluma Chicken and were very surprised to discover it was fried chicken as the description didn't mention that (and sadly, it wasn't particularly good fried chicken).

Wonderful dining experience but the food was overall so-so.

Service was exceptional. Restaurant beautifully maintained. Every aspect of my meal delicious as well as respectable portion sizing. Prices for fine dining have really, really gone up. So, I'm going to expect an impeccable experience at high end restaurants. By impeccable, I mean visually, gastronomically, interpersonally, and aurally.

Normally this place is a solid one but this time the food was problematic. A diner told our waiter about food allergies and the first dish came with the exact ingredient we warned about and had to be remade. Another diner’s order was improperly input and they sat empty-handed while the other diners were eating. When the error was pointed out to the waiter they tried to make up for it by bringing a complimentary bowl of soup but the diner had already had the soup as their appetizer (who wants two bowls of soup?). Nothing was comped when the bill came.

I was delighted at the outside seating and that they had heaters. The ceviche was incredible and the paella was dry not creamy at all. It's a $34 entree at lunch. Hopefully that was the exception. I would say that I should go back and give them a second chance but I don't typically spend $130 for lunch. It was a birthday lunch for a friend and we had a total of (3) glasses of wine.

I will add that the waiter brought a portion of a brownie and a candle when I expressed disappointment that my friend did not want dessert. That was very sweet and above and beyond.
