One of our favorite "Valley" restaurants! The food, wine/drinks and service are all excellent. Most nights the owner/chef will personally visit your table to be sure you you enjoyed the experience. Seriously, everything on the menu is wonderful!

Fabulous dining experience at Peasant! The trout was the best we've had and the penne pasta and bolognese was very good. All in all, a great dining experience!

Really interesting food and great building. Reservations can be difficult so plan in advance. It is small and intimate. Nothing better. A little expensive but worth it.
