This is a very good restaurant in a surprising location. Inconspicuously located in a strip mall in Yorba Linda, the food and service are terrific; Chef D'Aquila presents a personal take on continental cuisine with excellent quality and variety, including an imaginative wine list. The braised beef rib is a great cool weather selection, though not always on the menu.

With only about 8 tables, arrive early or get reservations.

My wife and I have eaten here twice, really enjoyed our entrees both times. The salmon with ruby grapefruit and basil chiffonade was superb on our last visit. The halibut with a burre blanc sauce was cooked absolutely perfectly. The iceberg wedge with blue cheese and tomatoes was very generous as an appetizer, perfect for us to split. Service is young, friendly, and pleasant.

If you are into wine, be prepared to recognize almost nothing on the wine list here. We had a French Sauvignon Blanc that was pleasant but did not have the depth of many American and New Zealand Sauv Blanc's that we've had, also had an Italian Pinot Grigio with a similar experience. Drinkable, but nowhere near the depth of some of the great and reasonable Oregon or Santa Barbara County Pinot Gris's. There was also very little on the wine list offered in these two varietals, which have made strong gains on Chardonnay in the last two years. Corkage is expensive, clearly trying to discourage one from bringing in a favorite wine.

As positive as the service was both times, we never had the sense that the servers were going to add much information or direction to our wine choices. We found my pinot grigio was much better with my wife's salmon, and my wife's sauv blance was much better with my halibut.

Summary: go for the food, expect great quality and attention to detail. Don't go with great expectations for the wine list, it is limited and features a lot of foreign wines.

Editorial from

Although this small bistro is located in a boring residential strip mall, its unassuming decor and service is refreshing. The menu changes from day to day and borrows influences from just about everywhere. Sometimes chef James D'Aquila is…
