This is one of the best restaurants in the area. The Inn is a fun, funky older building with a casual and cool vibe. Service was wonderful, friendly and professional. A waitress at another restaurant had recommended this place and especially raved about the mussels, and she was right. These were some of the best mussels I have ever had.... More

Found this place by accident. We were headed to The Star in Glen Ellen as per the reviews in TA, since the Host at The Star was so rude to my wife because we didn't have reservations on a Thursday night, she decided on the spot to leave. We drove down a bit and noticed the Inn. Walked in and... More

Overall nice restaurant with good food and good value. The night we were there, we had the shrimp bisque and crab potsticker appetizer which were good. The wild boar and dunguese crab pasta entrees were large but both were very good. Definitely an enjoyable dinner.

My aunt was visiting from Michigan and I took her on a whirlwind car tour of California. I showed her all the beauty of our state, north to south, from Yosemite throughout the wine country and down through central California to the warm coasts of my homeland in Southern Callifornia. With all the majestic things we experienced, the first thing... More

We couldn't reserve a room but wanted the small town experience on our Sonoma area visit. We settled for the Glen Ellen Inn lunch experience and weren't disappointed. I've seen on Food Channel the grilled romaine salad, so was not disappointed in its great flavor. The calamari was good but not the best we'd had. Yes, we'll return.

The food was uneven -- I had a very tiny and mediocre pear and beet salad, but the calamari was excellent. One of the other diners had the rib eye, which was excellent, while another had the salmon salad which was average. And the lobster bisque was mediocre. So...order carefully! And our server interpreted "courses" to mean, bring out items... More

Great filet mignon, good salads, friendly and efficient service. We went early so it was quieter. Nice wine selection and delicious martini.
