The service was very good. The gumbo was overpriced and very average quality. It did not have much substance and was mostly a sauce. The fish and chips was much better.

We went to Russian River Vineyards on their barrel tasting day and had a great time. My wife and I really enjoyed tasting their pino noir, merlot, and Zinfandel. The wine tasting took place in a fun atmosphere with live music, some pretty cool works of art, and an awesome dog of the vineyard named rilley. We also enjoyed a... More

The staff at our B&B suggested this restaurant for lunch. We were not disappointed. The wine was delicious as was my zucchini and poblano pepper soup, and Caesar salad. Since this was a rainy day the soup was perfect. After lunch we tasted the winery wines. The owner and staff were friendly and charming. Needless to say, we shipped home... More

Some of the best fresh, crispy calamari I've had, served with small romaine hearts dressed perfectly with a whole anchovy atop the lettuce. The Caesar was presented as if starring in a luncheon for a president in the mood for a little sinful crunch and a salad. A perfect light dinner after heavy hors d'oeuvres earlier. My companions had nothing... More

we were a group of six and had a great dinner here. The homemade ravioli was really, really good. Two had the pork special which was really flavorful and good. We all shared had the calamari which was excellent. Service was also excellent. Highly recommended.

We liked the laid back atmosphere here. We wanted to find somewhere outside to eat and this didnt disappoint. I had a salad and nice patisserie desert and went to and fro the outdoor bar to combine a tasting. The host at the bar was very friendly and informative and we loved the desert wine.

Beautiful setting. Food was above average. Service was a joke - teenagers who had no idea what they were doing (or serving).

Fun place to eat with excellent lunches and dinners while at the vineyard tasting. Go early as the place is always busy. Good salads and sandwiches at lunch and also on the fancy side too if you desire.
