West Shore Cafe Restaurant Review

: A longstanding local favorite, the West Shore Café offers seasonal cuisine inside the lodge-like dining room or along a popular waterfront terrace. Boat valets stand at attention during busy summer months, and the patio is the place to be on balmy evenings. Executive chef Kristi Ritchey uses a light touch in her Italian- and French-inflected California cuisine. Working closely with Ritchey is West Shore Café's executive sommelier Jessica Barton, who brings in both old-world wine and the latest selections from Northern California. Dinner entrées range from the grand “Seafood Indulgence” to grilled beef tenderloin with bone marrow. Note: Visit the restaurant’s website for dining hours.
