Wine Spectator Greystone
That is CIA as in Culinary Institute of America, which is situated in the imposing, 101-year-old Greystone, former home of the Christian Brothers winery. The executive chef is Todd Humphries, also of San Francisco's vaunted Campton Place. Humphries oversees a dedicated and professional full-time staff. Adventurous renditions of Spanish tapas complement California Cuisine that takes its Mediterranean cues from the Middle East and Morocco, as well. The impressive wine list promised by the name does not disappoint. Attentive service is well over and above the learning curve.
Three us visited on August 8, 2007. The salmon that was dry was served about 15 minutes before the other two meals. We had the appetizers that had no flavor. The onion soup had a nasty tasting and texture chees souffle and the soup was watery and tastless. Very overpriced. The highlight was the view from the patio. Will not try this again!
Our first two visits were great. Good service, good food.
Last visit, last week, poor service, very slow, food was good as usual. Waiter was inattentive. We were disappointed because service was excellent on our other visits and this was the first visit for our friends with deplorable service.
