This weekend is our anniversary and we are heading up from L.A. to one of our favorite places, Los Olivos, for the weekend. We are staying in the (SY) Valley for the entire weekend, but we ate at the Ballard Inn just 2 weeks ago (delicious), so we think we will head to SB on Fri. and then eat at Brothers at Mattei's Tavern on Sat., unless there is another place that is as good as those two. (Please tell me if so - I'd love to avoid the drive!)

Trouble is, I have no clue about the SB dining scene b/c I always stay/eat in Los Olivos. I read previous posts and narrowed it down to the following:


I would like to get at least a little bit dressed up, so anywhere people will be too casual (like in shorts) is to be avoided. We eat everything--Quantum sounded perfect but it just closed -- so I doubt the type of food is much of a consideration.

Thanks in advance.
