Three intimate, connected dining rooms adorned with champagne wallpaper, French silk lanterns, landscape paintings and white tablecloths await you as you enter Bistro 45.

The menu combines French techniques and California culinary philosophy into a seasonal offering studded with luxe bistro classics. Starters include escargot braised dipped in a velvety, pungent garlic flan, or day boat scallops resting in a heavenly smoked salmon sauce. Tender, roasted Cervena elk medallions are a standout, and a generous hunk of sea bass adorns a delicate, fragrant shellfish bouillabaisse. Desserts are artful and grand, especially the German chocolate cake-style brioche bread pudding with red currant ice cream.
