Sierra Mar at Post Ranch Inn gives you the feeling of dining at the very edge of the continent. Looking westward from the dramatic, contemporary building, cantilevered down a stretch of Big Sur coastline, you feel like you’re floating above the ocean. Reclaimed woods and slate floors lend an understated, natural elegance—nothing too flashy to compete with that incomparable view out the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
Magical? Yes, and so is the menu, with many dishes drawing inspiration from the Big Sur region—such as Morro Bay oysters, Monterey red abalone, and cheeses from Monterey County’s Schoch Family Farmstead. For the full experience, try the nine-course Taste of Big Sur tasting menu, complimented by Sierra Mar’s award-winning wine list, for dinner. Prix fixe or tasting menus are also available at lunch.
