Welcome to Cafe 225. California Bar and Grill . Having grown up in the San Francisco Bay area, I thought it appropriate to bring my food experiences with me to Visalia. My family has been in the restaurant business since 1959. I learned that every customer in the restaurant is a guest in your house - a friend, neighbor, or a member of the family who has come over for great food and a memorable time. And like family, no one should ever walk in without a warm greeting to be followed by the best meal they ever ate. I'm sure you will enjoy what comes out of our exposed kitchen and wood fired rotisserie & grill. I want you to feel comfortable coming in any time. For a business or family lunch, a cocktail and appetizers for happy hour, a Great dinner or a burger before a movie. We want to be the place for a dressed-up meal when you're trying to impress that special someone. And we want to share those milestones in with you. -Karl Merten owner and Chef
WE love this place. It has great service and very stylish food. It is also great for those little romantic dinners, such ambiance. My husband and I had our first date there over 5 years ago and cannot go there without remembering how nice the staff was not to kick us out long after everyone was cleared out, they must have noticed love in the air.
I love this place!!!! I don’t know what the other reviewer ordered, but I always get full and then some, and bring food home in a doggie bag. Everything is great from the pasta, and steaks to the pizza and deserts. Mmmmmmm. We often go there before events at the Fox and always get fast friendly service. And if anything we think they need to raise their prices compared to the other restaurants down town. I highly recommend going on a Friday night for clam chowder yum!
Love the food and salads. Always unique and flavorful. The rotisserie chicken is awesome and the new signature Burgers are Awesome. I have been going here for many years and enjoy it everytime. Great place for business meetings.
