Fodor's Review

At cliff's edge 1,200 feet above the Pacific at the ultrachic Post Ranch Inn, Sierra Mar serves cutting-edge American cuisine made from mostly organic, seasonal ingredients, some from the on-site chef's garden. The four-course prix-fixe option always shines, and the nine-course Taste of Big Sur menu centers on ingredients grown or foraged on the property or sourced locally. If you're unable to reserve a table for dinner, you can sit at the bar, which opens at 5:30 (first-come, first-served), or opt for the abbreviated prix-fixe ($55 and $95) lunch.
