When touring some of the boutique wineries in this area, we stopped at the Glen Ellen Inn for a lunch break. The interior was surprisingly attractive, and we were welcomed and seated immediately even without a reservation. Had an excellent lunch, great value and very friendly service. I'd definitely return for dinner, prices were very reasonable given wine country location.

The last time we ate here was five years ago when we were in Glen Ellen and it's still fantastic - great martinis, unique variations on meats and seafood, cooked and served to perfection, romantic ambiance, and friendly staff. And then there's the desserts - this time we had truffles and they were amazing.

We took a break from our wine tasting tour for a lunch at this quaint wine country inn. Our lunch consisted of a 1/2 dozen oysters (Cortez, Drakes Bay, and 1 more), steamed mussels in a wonderful creamy sauce, Fish Tacos with Black Bean Salsa, a Lamb Pastrami Sandwich with Garlic Fries, an order of Crab Pot Stickers and glasses...

The restaurant was the highlight of our stay at Glen Ellen Inn. A special Holiday menu was created by the Owner/Chef Chris and his wife Karen. My fiance' and I shared the Lobster Bisque and thanks to our FABULOUS waitress/bartender (Cyrstal), we also shared the crab potsticker on her recommendation. OH WOW!!! Both dishes were incredible!!!! My fiance' had the... More

After a nice walk out to the Wolf House ruins, we settled down for Thanksgiving Dinner at the Glen Ellen Inn. The staff was warm and welcoming. We greatly enjoyed our meal: Roasted squash soup with cranberry coulis (and a hint of curry) was very good. The Roasted beet and goat cheese salad was excellently prepared and dressed. The steamed...

Delightfully surprised with fresh, tasty food. Had a late lunch on a Tuesday when so many other places in town were closed. Our party of 4 had tri tip BBQ sandwich, bowl of vegetable beef soups, raviolis, & fried romaine salad. We wrapped up with shared double truffle and house specialty Sunday with our coffee.

It was late when we arrived and we were tired from traveling so it was great to have a really nice dinner here in a relaxing atmosphere. We had filet and prawns and they we both perfect. Great wine, of course, but if you like martinis this is the place to go because they make like 30 or more varieties.... More

We had dinner with friends about 2 weeks ago. I had the cioppino and it was delicious and quite different that others that I have had.

The food wine fine, but I wouldn't return. Our server seemed totally preoccupied and the décor really could use some updating. Dusty fake plants and cheap items used in "decorating"
