Great place for tasty paella! We finally came here thanks to Sonoma County Restaurant Week. The menu included a choice of tapas, paella, and creamy vanilla ice cream. Can't say it was a great Restaurant Week deal at $29 when paella is normally around $20. Tapas were good, but I'd skip them and go straight to the paella next time because that's where it's really at. It's not easy to find good paella. It's cool that you can see them make the huge batches of paella. I'll consider splitting one order next time since I completely filled a to-go box. Pros: tasty paella, good service Cons: limited menu

Finally made it here, its been on my list for some time! The Paella was excellent, as were our adult beverages. Sweet setting, watching the world go by, windows open with the spring breeze, appreciating the sun we've missed so long. I'd like to really commend everyone that works here too, they're warm, friendly and funny.

We had never gotten around to eating here but the news that it will be going out of business soon made us stop in. The waiter's recommendation that their $18 seafood paella was enough for two was a good one. Flavoring was balanced, chicken and seafood was abundant and we were stuffed for under $20 for two. We've enjoyed Gerard's paella catering at other event over the years and it is a shame it won't be around at this location much longer.
