California Sun, Sheep, along with excellent food

Come in starting at 4pm for drinks and appetizers out on the deck over looking the grazing sheep and views of the hillsides and bay that we make for lasting memories.

We dinned here 6 years ago and it was good then. This time we also had a great time. Atmosphere, service and food quality very high. Well worth the effort. But Clint was not there yet again. Piano man was in very good form though. We dinned outside and my head got rather warm from the patio heaters but very... More

We were there for a dinner, that was fantastic (clam chowder and crab cakes; catch of the day and scalops). There is a wide choise of the local wines as well. What we dont like is the fact that it was quite noisy inside, despite that the live music was great.

We stayed at the beautiful mission ranch and booked reservation for dinner on a weekday evening. This whole atmosphere is so peaceful. The food was great and the drinks were strong . It was a wonderful evening. The parking lot gets full and folks like to stay and head to bar after dinner. It is and older crowd . The... More

Appreciated early opening at 4 p.m. & ordering off the bar menu. Service was very good, food was tasty, never felt rushed, cozy atmosphere by bar & piano & fire. Casual dress. Lively place - not stuffy! Good views out to meadow.

The food was amazing, one of the best brunches I have ever eaten. The scenery was very nice and the grounds were amazing. We didn't get to stay at the Ranch, but will be returning so that we could do so. Only one thing missing was Clint Eastwood. Love this place

Mission Ranch experience is well worth the visit and stay. The accommodations are excellent and quite. The restaurant has a fun atmosphere with the outside veranda decking and the inside bar lounge and with piano and singer and well equipped dining area with three fireplace placements. There were eight people, six adults and two children. The final bill was $578.00.... More

My friend lives in Carmel, so while my boyfriend and I were in town for a wedding, we met her for lunch at this location; she noted it was her favorite in the area. I can see why. The scenery is unbelievable. We sat on the patio (which was enclosed by a tent for Mother’s Day) and overlooked a pasture... More

We put our names in and walked the grounds for a bit. Just a beautiful atmosphere. Great piano bar and exceptional service throughout the evening. The food was all very good and timely served. I would highly recommend this place

Coming from Paris, France, we stayed 4 days in the hotel, and had 2 different diners in the restaurant which were really enjoyable : very good food, tasty preparations, e.g. Tomato and mozarella, carpaccio of tuna, duck with many flavors, excellent wines from California and the service was efficient and very nice. We hope to come again next year !
