It's one of places for 'foodies' with very good food, well prepared, and providing excellent service. Of course, being in the wine country the wine selection is excellent. Is it worth the price? Not so sure.

Dinner with my partner for his birthday. Great atmosphere, sitting location great. Service staff fluid and attentive. Dinner selections varied with unique attempts for different sauces and flavors. Overall, dinner experience efficient and memorable. Will be back to see much improved menu than last year.

A spectacular early Valentine's Day dinner celebration. The food was well prepared and tasty. I was very excited to find foie gras on the menu and was not disappointed. The lamb loin was prepared as requested although a few slices were not as tender as the rest. The three-layer chocolate mocha mousse hazelnut dessert was a delightful finale.

We were up in Guerneville for our annual trip which happened to be on Valentine's this year so we decided to locate an upscale restaurant to celebrate. Dinner was wonderful and staff attentive. Nice place for a special dinner

We were disappointed with the quality of the meal. Our main courses (lamb and steak) were cooked unevenly. Our food was good, not great, not worth the $ that we paid . Maybe they are counting on the Michelin rating that a previous chef was awarded in 2012. Service was good. But we won't be back.

The wine was awesome. The food was very good, but it was a bit too trendy and uppity for us. We're more farm to table people.

I am so glad that you thought the wine was awesome and the food was very good. Our new chef Annie Hongkham uses the freshest produce, meet and fish from our beautiful surroundings. She is also a gardener that personally manages our extensive cultivation of vegetable and fruits to make our menu very farm to table or rather garden to... More

I read some of the reviews, which mentioned portions that were too small, and prices that were too high, but I disagree. We had the three course meal, starter, entree, dessert and a generous bread basket. The food was exquisite, both attractively presented and delicious. It was rich and flavorful, and each course was fully satiating. The entree was large... More

My husband and I had a fine time staying at the Applewood Inn B&B. Lovely room, quiet, good location. We were disappointed with the service at the restaurant for breakfast and the picnic lunch we ordered to take with us was a disaster. The breakfast food was very good. The weird part was that each part of the breakfast came... More

Applewood Inn, Restaurant and Spa is one business but reviews in this forum and others are separate for the inn and for the Restaurant. Your review about breakfast and the picnic basket should be for the inn. Only dinner we attribute to the restaurant, a team under the leadership of a very gifted chef, Annie Hongkham. I thanks you for... More

This is an absolutely wonderful fine dining experience. The staff could not be more welcoming and helpful and the food was truly excellent.
