Fodor's Review

Chef James Richmond aims to prepare "good, tasty, contemporary but not too complicated French food," which he serves in a softly lit space off the Mount View Hotel's lobby. Steak tartare, veal sweetbreads with a wild-mushroom glaze, slow-braised short rib with horseradish crème, and seared sea scallop with blood sausage are among the dishes frequently on the menu. As befits a restaurant named for the point at which grapes acquire their harvesttime color, wines from the carefully selected list—mostly French and California bottlings—are ripe for pairing with Richmond's cuisine. Jazz and world music set an up-tempo mood in the dining room, whose large black-and-white photos depict the hotel in its heyday.
