Jutting off a 1,200-foot cliff above the Pacific, Sierra Mar's dining room looks like something out of a James Bond film—all glass, slate, and wood, and swirling sea to the horizon. The visuals are tough competition, but chef Craig von Foerster's daily-changing Euro-Cal menu ain't too shabby, either. His choices have included Thai-spiced prawns with green-papaya salad, a trio of foie gras, and saffron seafood soup (a California adaptation of the Provençal classic). A few dishes can be on the overwhelming side—the flavors of a rib-eye steak with Cambazola cheese and onion compote, for example, seem to be fighting each other—so when in doubt, order light. For maximum romance, book a corner window table, come just before sunset, and ask for the superb reserve wine list. Oh, and book a room at the adjoining Post Ranch Inn, while you're at it.
