Stopped here on our way to Mendo and was really happy with our food. The staff were super friendly and the food came out promptly. I ordered the smoked turkey quesadilla and for dessert I got the shortcake with strawberries.. It was delicious.....

Reading the menu I wasn't very excited about eating at Lauren's. We were 6 people and had few options so thought we'd give it a try. It turned out to be a very good choice as the food was surprisingly delicious. We enjoyed the spring rolls with peanut sauce as an appetizer, but were less impressed with the artichoke with... More

Lauren goes out of her way to buy local, organic and seasonal produce, and has for many years. Its shows in the delicious salads, thoughtful and tasty entrees, and frankly, the most delicious strawberry/rhubarb shortcake I have ever eaten. Lauren highlights local artists, hosts a great weekly trivia night, and frequently has local and regional musical talent. She pours local... More

Boonville does not have a huge selection of places to eat. Lauren's is casual, not at all fancy and no great ambiance. But the soup was good and the arugula salad ok. It was either this or Acquarelle and I know of wish we had picked the latter. But Lauren's would be good family dining and has a pretty good... More

This is our "go to" restaurant whenever we visit the Valley.l Lauren herself is usually in house and can recommend what's esp. Good that night. Get the pot roast when available or our friend John would say the meatloaf. This is down home cooking at its best.

Where do super fresh ingredients, locals, trivia, and cold beer collide in Anderson Valley? Lauren's of course. A lot of restaurants around here have a short shelf life, but not Lauren's. It just keeps on trucking year after year. Why? Super duper fresh food. I always feel like my I've done my Mom proud when I eat at Lauren's. My... More

Lauren's is a must for anyone coming to the Anderson Valley. The food is terrific and eclectic, ranging from comfort foods like meatloaf and top notch chicken pot pie to salads and mexican specialties and all sorts of monthly specials. There's a lot of locally grown ingredients and Lauren also serves the only veggie burger I will order anywhere. A... More

Lauren's is a very good place to stop for food in Boonville. The night we went the place was jammed with locals and the food well worth the wait. It was fun, and we would go back.
