Good food and great service

We just had dinner at Glenn Ellen Inn. Our waiter was great! We brought a battle of wine with us and offered him a taste. When we received the check, we found that he waived the $9.00 corkage fee and even brought us a free dessert. I would highly recommend this place.

We enjoyed our wine tour visit to Sonoma Valley region....by staying in Glen Ellen, we were able to walk to excellent restaurants. The Glen Ellen Inn was one of them. The menu is online, and it was good to have a reservation...cozy atmosphere, regional taste food, and good service.

My husband and I ate twice at the Glen Ellen Inn in no small part becasue the food is fabulous, the service is excellent, and the martini list is so much fun! Not quite as posh as the Glen Ellen Star or Fig Cafe next door, but much more accessible (no reservation required) than the former and tastier than the... More

Went to the restaurant for lunch with no RSVP. We were lucky to get a table for 2 at the window. We both had the Kobe Hamburger and Garlic Fries. Just delicious! Service was great also. Would definitely go back when I'm in the area. Nice atmosphere too!

Glen Ellen Inn rates only "fine." There is better in the Wine Country. Arriving in "downtown" Glen Ellen, diners will find the Glen Ellen Inn tucked snugly near The Fig Café and some doctors' offices. With many nooks and crannies, the labyrinthine dining area is quite confusing and not very well ventilated. A warning to gentlemen: be ready to doff... More

Awesome service, we had a delightful dinner. Oyster on the half were delicious, Rockafeller was a little oversized. Delicious desserts too!

We stumbled on this restaurant through a recommendation at one of the wineries we visited. At that point, we were definitely needing a break. We arrived early enough that we didn't have a wait or have reservations, but it looked like it was be necessary for prime lunch and dinner times. The martini selection was a fun break from the...

We arrived and the bar area was very noisy. We were seated in the covered patio area and it was perfect. The service was timely and consistent. We had as least two tending to our service throughout the meal. The food was great. The only small bump in the evening, and I stress small, was the chardonnay options by the... More
