"We have never had a restaurant of this quality in Penn Valley! The ambiance is soothing and comfortable. The food is amazing! We had brunch. I ordered a cup of chili and a Pink Lady apple salad. My wife had peanut butter stuffed cinnamon French toast. Each dish had complex flavor that created a frenzy of tastes in my mouth. The chili was topped with crumbles of corn bread, chives, and sour cream. The salad mixed fresh greens with walnuts, Humbolt blue cheese, pickled onions, and apple. It was dressed with a light vinaigrette. The epic French toast was dusted with powdered sugar, and served with real maple syrup. Service was exceptional! You are helped and greeted by a team of attentive people. The owners are present and working hard to provide a flawless dining experience. You really need to try this exceptional dining spot! You will be delighted! We plan on being regulars! ~Steve R.
We haven't been so happy with every aspect of a meal in a very long time. Great service. Better food. Every bite was a tiny flavor explosion...like manna from heaven for my long neglected palette.
I came in with a group of 5. The minute we walked in, we we're treated like royalty. The service was amazing, the food incredible and a beautiful ambiance. On our drive home, everyone was in agreeance; this was the best dinner we have ever had. -Paul B
Void of any pretentiousness, Twelve 28 Kitchen can rival any Michelin star restaurant in any city including my hometown of New York. -Dave L.
"A definite gem for our local community. We've been waiting for Twelve 28 Kitchen to open ever since we got a tease of their cuisine at our local chefs contest in September. I think it says a lot that they won the contest before they were even open! I had the pork belly band mi sandwich. The pork belly was perfectly cooked in a delicious ginger soy glaze. The fresh cucumber carrot slaw and thinly sliced jalapeño created a perfect storm of flavors in my mouth. I ate my meal very slow as it was so good I didn't want to finish. My husband had the rock cod fish tacos. He said they were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. And even though we were so stuffed, we just had to try dessert. We chose to share a dessert. I don't recall the name, but it was a mousse like chocolate yumminess with two homemade chocolate brownie cookies and a dollop of vanilla whipped cream. TO DIE FOR. The service was impeccable. Our server, Bradley was attentive but not intrusive, funny, friendly, honest, and very helpful with suggestions. You can't help but just adore him! And Zack, the owner/chef came to our table to have a chat, as did his dad, who was manning the bar and seeing guests. I think the prices are on point for the quality and care that goes into presenting such amazing food. Two entrées, one dessert, two glasses of wine and three craft beers came to $80.00. We will definitely be regulars." ~Jennifer B
"Fantastically delicious food and beautiful presentation! Finally a reason to go out to eat locally. The food is absolutely a delight to the taste buds. We haven't had a restaurant like this around here since Citronee left. Thank you, we look forward to making visits regularly and making reservations. Thank you for your vision of such a fine dining establishment." ~Satin B.
"The service was excellent! I had the Rockfish Taco's and my mother had the Butternut and Apple soup, both were awesome!! The food presentation was beautiful! It was nice to eat where the atmosphere was calm and was quiet enough to have a conversation!! We look forward to eating many meals here!" ~Trudy R.
"Attended the soft opening tonight and the food was exceptional, service great and atmosphere comfortable and inviting. A new favorite of mine!!! Way to go Zach and family! A well deserved 5 star rating!" ~Sandy F.
