If you’ve ever traveled down to New Orleans, there’s nothing that touches the relaxed, carefree and vibrant nature of the locals. That translates to their food, which is why it’s awesome that we have a NOLA-inspired kitchen right in the backyard! Classic Bayou favorites such as jambalaya, gumbo, fried chicken and more come to life at Creola, and the cozy environment is enough to put you right at peace! 


Though maybe an acquired taste for some, well-prepared Mediterranean cuisine is legendary for the palette. Authentic Greek and Turkish dishes are both in store at AGORA, as well as beer and wine selections straight from the Greek Isles. Better yet, with an architectural atmosphere based on that of Santorini Island, the European flavor you’ll be treated to is unrivaled.

Elegance, picture-perfect views and wonderful outdoor terraces meet patrons of Madera, and that’s before you even look at the menu! This contemporary spot features high-quality artisan wood-burning stoves, a stellar wine list (voted “Best Of 2016” by Wine Spectator Magazine) and traditional Bay Area favorites. What could be better for your Thanksgiving feast?

Every type of Italian cuisine and wine is available, and the extravagance of your meal and restaurant ambiance can’t be understated. Simply bellissimo!
