seasonally-driven, coastal, wood-fired cuisine

Alderwood Santa Cruz is a seasonally-driven restaurant by chef Jeffrey Wall serving coastal, wood-fired cuisine with French undertones. We are inspired by the Central Coast region and its world-renowned farms. Our goal is to bring you a dining experience that blends sophistication and comfort with our unyielding passion for graceful hospitality, and a menu that reflects California’s abundant produce and the best regional purveyors. 

Located in downtown Santa Cruz, our cozy and convivial space features dining-room, bar, and chef’s-counter seating. We are open for happy hour, dinner, and late-night dining on Friday and Saturday.
