Located in the Post Ranch Inn with gorgeous views over the cliffs of Big Sur, Sierra Mar is an excellent choice for fine dining with a Pacific sunset view. Be ready to spend $145 for the four-course prix-fixe menu (there’s no a la carte option), but the dishes are always interesting and well-executed. Think duck with preserved cherry and turnip, oyster and coconut zabaione, and smoked mussels with fermented vichyssoise. Time your dinner reservation here to coincide with the sunset for a special date night you’ll reminisce about for years.
