This was one of the best grilled chicken salads I think I have ever had. The lettuce was crisp, chicken warm, black bean salsa was refreshing and the tortilla strips gave it just the right amount of crunch. My only regret was that I finished the dish!! The bread was tasty and my husbands garlic fries were incredibly delicious. If... More

Went here for lunch after a vineyard tasting. Seated promptly. Comfortable table and helpful, friendly waitstaff. My wife had the grilled chicken salad and I had the Kobe beef burger with garlic fries. All were delicious. Prices reasonable. Would recommend and will eat here again.

I would highly recommend eating at the Glen Ellen Inn. We had 12 people in our group and we all enjoyed our meals.

And we were pleasantly surprised. We had our choice of seating - inside, outside, or on the patio. We chose to sit on the patio, which overlooked some outdoor seating below and a water fountain. I ordered the sautéed shrimp with coconut rice....it was wonderful. Lots of flavor, served hot, and cooked perfect. My husband had the pan grilled salmon,... More

We stayed at the Glen Ellenn Inn for a night, and gave the restaurant a try. We sat outside on the large ovation which was nice. Service was average, and nothing worth writing about. We triedthe fried oysters with tobassco butter as an appetizer. The menu said three, but four came in the plate. The oysters were large, but had... More

This used to be our favorite restaurant to go to when visiting the wine country. In fact, we always saved it as our last dinner of the trip because it was always a special place to go. Unfortunately, the things which once made it special are no longer there...starting with the menu. The extensive martini list and the option to... More

Very delicious steaks though mine was practically moo'ing despite asking for medium rare. Nicely prepared veggies. Delicious bread and butter. Wonderful ambiance. A star taken off for not good dessert choices.... creme brule with too many ingredients does not a good creme brule make! They tried too hard on desserts, they should go to basic. We had to drive to... More

The wine list at the Glen Ellen Inn is the broadest and deepest of any restaurant in Sonoma County. By way of example, there are 6 separate vintages of Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cepages and 8 separate vintages of Opus One. There are lots of hard to find Sonoma County and Napa County producers. Most offerings are very fairly priced.... More
