The service was great, and everyone was very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was nice and the restaurant was extremely clean. The food was mediocre and overpriced. None of our breakfast burritos had cheese and were extremely bland. I may come back to try some other food only because the service was so good.

The restaurant was beautiful, Sean our server was great. He had a great personality and knowledge of the menu. Was disappointed in the a amount of food for the price though. A chicken leg was $34.00. Would have been different if it had come with sides. Also, when ordering sides, the portions were very small and expensive.
I’ve paid this amount of money for dinner, but with bigger portions.

I ordered and gin and tonic and was surprised when the bill had the price of the 1 oz of gin plus the cost of the tonic water.

Although the ambiance was lovely, I won’t be returning, nor recommending this restaurant.

Hello -
I've just expressed our disappointment with our recent visit to O&C, via OpenTable. Not sure whether this will actually get read, so I'll keep it brief. But it was so frustrating to have our special request (phoned in several days in advance and then confirmed upon arrival) entirely ignored by the hostess and our waiter (Sean). We brought relatives from out of town with us, trusting that your restaurant could provide a positive experience. But the waiter couldn't answer basic questions about the menu, and he completely botched the timing of our food service, in spite of having lots of support from the wait staff. Anyway, I would hope that this message gets to management. I've noticed others posting similarly negative comments on Google and OpenTable recently. Here's hoping you guys can turn things around.

This is one of our favorite places to have a delicious meal and yummy drinks. We particularly enjoy their brunches and with their special touches, including on ramping up crowd favorites like mimosas (dragonfruit mimosas anyone?). We’re never disappointed.

Great service and delicious food. Fine dining level in terms of food quality, presentation, and taste, but it’s not pretentious at all. Drinks were very good too! Highly recommend the beet hommos, the angus wagyu burger, and the branzino! Definitely will be coming back here when we’re in the area.

Food was great, we enjoyed the pasta dishes & the bread appetizer.

Service took a 25 minutes to get our orders on drinks & food. Aside from that, the food was brought out quickly. Overall good experience.

Overall what one would expect from a high-end and slightly overpriced restaurant. My main issue is with their lack of accessibility for disabled people - no ramps for people who are mobility impaired. The elevator wasn’t working according to the attendant. Unfortunate.

A table was ready when I arrived. Beverage service was right on time. Food arrived quickly and was delicious. I was reading the Sunday paper so the staff kept the pace appropriately slow. I had a thoroughly delightful experience.

Nothing on the menu is extraordinary, but everything is good, if not overpriced. The building is lovely, though. What you’d expect from Redlands, I suppose.

Phenomenal food and atmosphere for a very special date night. I strongly recommend their salmon. Service was good; our waiter was pretty busy covering many tables but was courteous and still as timely as she could be. This restaurant is hands down the best restaurant in Redlands; you pay for it though.

Food was delicious and ambiance was wonderful. Service was good but not over the top great. Have dined all over the world and although the food was extremely good, it was overpriced. For over $450 for 4 people and twice being reminded to”keep your silverware “ for the next course did not impress…paying that much, I expect more of the little extras in dining.

Shrimp was undercooked. Steak was ordered medium rare, came out raw. Sides are all extra. $16 for a house salad. Fine dining should be able to cook a steak. Won't be back.

Where do I begin? As our waiter greeted us, he informs us that the Chef would like everyone to order all courses at the same time. Okaaaaay….. then we waited for what seemed like 45 minutes. No updates, no apologies… almost like he was avoiding us. Finally, we flagged him down to inquire. Did he ask us if we wanted another cocktail? Nope. Just “It should be coming soon”. Then the food arrived. My Wagu burger was so cooked, it was dry and crumbly. And my “fries” consisted of five undercooked, greasy potato wedges. The rest of the table liked their choices, but complained about portion size. Chalk it up to an expensive mistake. Never going back.

My husband, son and I were celebrating my husband getting a big promotion at work. I asked when making the reservation to please have something small brought to the table saying congratulations. Unfortunately that did not happen to I walked away feeling a little disappointed. The food was 10/10 though.

Our 20 wedding anniversary, no mention .. extremely unpleasant fan noise, food service bad, from missing serving appetizer, one hour wait between dishes, requesting items that were not delivered… once food was served , one hour later, within 5 minutes waiters asking if she can clear the table … offer to take off appetizer from bill yet not remove … will not recommend!
