Hard to Beat!

My wife & I had a fabulous dinner experience at Farmhouse Inn on 6/18/15. The food was fabulous, the wine list was varied & fairly priced and the service was as good as it gets. We have eaten at 2* and 3* Michelin restaurants in the U.S. & Europe. None of them were any better than Farmhouse Inn.

We will never go to the Russian River area without having dinner at Farmhouse Inn. The best. Great small bistro ambience. First class service and Food that is best in the region.

We stayed two nights at the Farmhouse Inn and had dinner here one of the evenings. A lovely place. Superb and personal service. Excellent food with a farm to table touch. We didn't do the wine pairing, but excellent wine recommendations from the expert sommelier. An evening to remember.

I chose this restaurant based on the Michelin star rating. You can choose 3 or 4 courses and can skip dessert and make it all savory. We had the hamachi crudo, which was a little disappointing as it was slightly fishy and the flavors weren't that special. I had the duck egg fettucini which was delicious - the different textures...

Delicious food in a very lovely setting. Good wine recommendations. Menu offered variety but seemed focused on meat, heavier sauces.

Great flavors that highlighted local produce. Definitely a farm-to-table experience worth the trip out.

If you are familiar with nouvelle cuisine prix fixed dinners, you will be amazed at the value you get, given the quality of the ingredients that are used. Each dish is a work of perfection. The waitstaff is engaging and professional, while the sommelier is very knowledgeable. The restaurant interior layout allows for casual, elegant, quiet dining in a region... More

Quite possibly. The freshest warm asparagus soup. Coconut tuna ceviche. Grilled octopus to die for. Tender Alaskan halibut over English peas. And a chocolate salad for desert. Yes it's true. A salad of chocolate for desert. A variety of chocolate flavors, textures, temperatures. Off the charts.

Very disappointed with our meal here. Service was inconsistent & slightly odd. There was no option to use local or American wine in the pairing which is strange - isn't that what we're all here for??? The wine that was chosen for pairing was good but not even great. The food was average. No evidence of a Michelin starred chef... More

We wanted to LOVE this place, but it didn't feel like it was worth the money. We had two other nice meals in the Sonoma/Napa area that we thought had better food and were far less expensive. It is definitely a special occasion restaurant - very "chi chi." It wasn't a bad meal, but it didn't live up to the... More
