The menu has changed, but the ambiance and quality of food and service still excellent. My husband and I like to guess who is singing that song on the sound system. They are attentive without being obtrusive and very classically trained waitstaff. Remember to order the souffle with your entree so it will be ready on time. The Sycamore Special dessert is a very special treat as well.

My DD and I are here in Claremont on a college visit. We had read about the Cheese Cave prior to our trip and were determined to make it one of our meals. We had originally planned to have some cheese, bread and for me, wine, for lunch. Unfortunately by the time we made our way to Claremont, it was close to 5pm. But since cheese is one of our greatest loves, we decided to make it a cheese and bread dinner. The staff at the store were super friendly and helpful. We told them that we were looking to have dinner. When asked, I told them I was looking to have 3 different cheeses and a meat for dinner. We sampled half a dozen cheeses based on what we told the nice young man we'd like and finally settled on the following: Epoisses Coupe: pungent, slightly funky, very soft Center with in edible soft rind, creamy and salty. Soft cheese perfect to spread in bread. Reblochon Douceur du Jura: slightly nutty. Creamy but not as soft as the Epolsses Coupe. Milder in taste but had a stronger scent. Delicious on its own or on a cracker. Bishop's Peak: hard cheese with hard rind. Nutty yet creamy. Mildest of the 3 cheeses. I liked this on its own. Framani Salame Toscano: one of the tastiest Salame I've ever had. Just the perfect saltiness. It also didn't have that gaminess that some Salame have. It was perfect. Since there was no way that I could finish a whole bottle of wine by myself, I choose beer instead. The young man at the store suggested the BLB Lagerithim Dark Larger and it was refreshing and delicious. It went down almost a little too easily. The entire bill - 3 cheeses, the Salame and the large bottle of beer came to $31.90. This is yet another reason why my DD should consider coming to Claremont for college. I cannot imagine never having that Epoisses Coupe ever again! I can honestly say that it's my all time favourite cheese. If you love cheese, the Cheese Cave is a must do!!!

I would give five stars for Great food, but the Poor service we got tonight gets one star! My husband and I have been to Owens in the past and loved it. We came tonight to celebrate my birthday, which we noted when the reservation was made. Upon arrival, you enter into the bar area. When we entered the bartender said hello but nothing else. After a few moments I was ready to ask where we needed to check in when a server walked in and the bartender asked him to check us in. We were then told that Denise (the owner) would be with us in just a moment. We stood there for a while before deciding to take a seat at the bar. The bartender never asked if we wanted a drink while we were waiting which would be a good idea in boosting sales and keeping the customer happy while they wait. However, he seemed a bit too busy with the one drink he was making to ask us. Denise then came in to greet us, walked over to the reservation book and then left. A moment later she returned, took us to our table, provided us with menus and told us the specials. She left without ever asking if we wanted a drink while we were waiting. So, we settled for the water that was on the table for the next 15-20 minutes till she came back to take our order. In the meantime there were several waiters and a busboy wandering around yet no one stopped to help us or ask us if we needed anything. They weren't busy enough to explain why we were seemingly forgotten about. It was still early (6:30). We then sat and tried to talk while enjoying the live music, but it was too loud to hear each other talk without shouting. The tables are really close together so you can't really have a private conversation when you're shouting over loud music. When our appetizer came we still had no drinks. I had to ask for them, at which time they did bring them. I should mention that we only ordered a glass of wine and an ice tea. Nothing that needed to be mixed or would take time to make.We started with the grilled avocado appetizer on the corn salsa which was absolutely delicious. It left us wanting more. My husband had the soup of the day, which was a vegetable beef soup that he absolutely loved. For entrÃ©es I had the grilled lobster tail with rice and vegetables and my husband had the fillet medallions with petite potatoes and vegetables. The lobster was good but just a tad over cooked. The rice could have used a little more flavor and seemed a little oily/buttery, but was really good mixed with the vegetables. Overall I was satisfied with my dish and it was, as always, just the right portion size. My husband said the fillet medallions were cooked perfectly, the potatoes were seasoned well and the vegetables were tasty. He was very happy with his meal. No one ever came back to ask if we wanted another drink. They did finally returned and ask if we wanted to see the dessert menu. Uhhhh, it's my birthday...of course I do!!For dessert we order the chocolate cake with berries and a glass of port wine. Just before we ordered dessert another table was celebrating a birthday. Their server brought a piece of chocolate cake with a candle in it and they sang happy birthday while the musician played the song. However, the server brought my cake with no candle and no wine. Again I had to ask him to please bring my drink. Denise brought the Port over and I asked her why they didn't sing happy birthday to me like they did the other table? She said the musician was on a break and we didn't want to hear her sing. But really? Not even a candle or a verbal Happy Birthday?!!! Why did I come here again to celebrate a special occasion like my birthday?!Like I said the food was good but when I pay that much for dinner I also expect good service. Without both... I don't return and I don't recommend. It was not only frustrating, but it was hurtful to be treated that way for my birthday. I would rather take the drive and go somewhere the quality of service matches the quality of the food.

The place to go for breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails, small plates, fresh baked breads, French pastries, banquet parties, late night dancing and fun! Great for meetings, birthdays, get togethers, reunions, etc. Seating capacity 450
There was only seven of us, but we had a private area to have our birthday luncheon celebration! I had a simple chicken cesaer salad which was good. Everyone had something different and they all seemed to enjoy their food. The service was excellent and they brought the birthday girl a dessert and we all sang Happy Birthday. I am glad we were inside though as it was a very windy day. Will go back again for a friend's birthday celebration.
