Fine Dining in the Inland Empire

I could tell you EXACTLY where all the McDonalds and El Pollo Locos are, but what about nice restaurants?

As far as fine dining goes, here in Riverside I have been to Duane's (which by the way is the Inland Empires only AAA Four Diamond awarded restaurant), Mario's, The Mission Inn Restaurant, Olio Ristorante, Cafe Sevilla, and countless others. I recommend all of these restaurants.

Duane’s is interesting because you can expect to pay ~35-60 dollars per plate not including drinks or sides. But it is a nice atmosphere.

I frequent Don Jos?s, El Torrito, the Olive Garden and many more here in Riverside, but I was curious to see if there are any smaller nice restaurants here in the IE. Real secret type places, not real well known, but with a candle-lit atmosphere and good food?

Know any?

If you like very nice Italian, and I mean excellent Italian, go down to Lake Elsinore and visit Raviolis Italian Bistro on Main street. The place is beautifully decorated and more often than not you will be greated by the owner. The food is fantastic and it is never busy in there (Lake Elsinore isn't exactly known for your finer restaurants )

That's perfect! That's EXACTLY the type of place I was looking for! Thank you.

I just went to Fleming's Steakhouse last night in Rancho Cucamonga and was amazed on how good the food was. The bone-in Rib Eye steak was $42.95 and every side dish was an additional $7-$12, so the $30 as quoted is a little light. I highly recommend it though!

If you like Chinese/American food the Yangtze Restaurant in Ontario was pretty good.

? Family Restaurants - Ontario, CA - Yangtze Restaurant

definitely an era style restuarant!

Isabella's in Calimesa is actually quite exceptional italian food. Decent prices, decent wine list, the wife and I love it.

Cafe Sevilla is AWESOME. This inspires me to go tonight...

Castaway in San Bernardino is an awesome place too, great food, great atmosphere.

I had the seafood linguini at Ravioli's. It was spectacular. Most restaurants overcook seafood. Ravioli's was perfect. Expensive, but spectacular.
