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"

After a wonderful day visiting the nearby Jack London Park and the Glen Ellen Fall Fair, we had dinner at the Inn. The ambiance was delightful, the service wonderful and the food....terrific. We had the Beet and Poached Pear salad. The microgreens were so inspirational I've decided to grow some on my own. The fish special that night was another... More

We dined at the Glen Ellen Inn during a recent visit to wine country. We were seated in an enclosed porch with candle lit tables and nice atmosphere. This is a farm to table restaurant with lots of fresh vegetables I had the butternut squash bisque which was wonderful and the hanger steak served with roasted cauliflower and garlic fried.... More

The garden at this restaurant is almost magical, twinkling lights nestled among trees and bushes. The food was very good offering plenty of selection for our group, which included several vegetarians. Our only question was that when we called for reservations at about 4:00, they said they could not seat us until 7:30. We called again at about 6:00 to... More

This restaurant looks so unassuming in the quaint tiny downtown area of Glen Ellen. The restaurant is charmingly decorated and has a fantastic martini list :) There were 6 of us dining and all of us loved what we ordered; from the burgers, pasta, salmon and cheeses, everything was delicious and filling. They make their bread and pasta and their... More

Nestled in little village between two popular cafes, this spot has several interior rooms and a bustling dining deck. Specialties are martini variants plus selected shell fish. Other dinner offerings were satisfying as well. Friendly (but over-extended ?) servers. A solid local choice if staying in Glen Ellen.
