Help me choose - girl and the fig or K&L Bistro?

Have opportunity to dine at either one. Any preference, and why? I know one is in Sonoma and one is in Sebastopol, but both are about same distance from our house.

Looking for relaxed atmosphere, good food and casual/friendly service. Thanks!

        More than any specific dish, I have the lingering memory of a very pleasant, fulfilling (pun intended!) experience.

          Cindy, I have never had a bad meal there -- never a bad experience. Everything I've had there has been delicious, and as RicRios says, more than anything specific, everytime I eat there, I leave feeling happy and without a sense that "this" could have been _____, or "that" could have been ________. Were I in charge of the restaurant, I wouldn't have changed a thing -- and tht's a pretty great feeling . . .

      2. We like K&L. Had the "Business Lunch," Sand dabs were perfect. Others enjoyed the Mussels and the Crab Cakes. Special of the day - Grilled Sardines (Friday). Great service too.

            1. We had the best dinner of our vacation (a few years ago now....) at Girl and the Fig. What a meal! Hubby had a prix fixe and i had a veggy thing...i remember the desserts were incredible.
