My husband and I recently stayed at the Applewood Inn and had a wonderful dinner in their restaurant. The service was good, and the server was very conversant with the menu. When I requested a slight adaptation it was handled perfectly. Our waiter even insisted on giving us a couple of macaroons and candle to mark the occasion! We would... More

My husband and I used to love this place. Past tense. It's gone off and we won't be back. It was not a single failure but multiple. Nobody greeted us at the front desk when we came in. We went for the tasting menu, and when we asked for the sommelier to discuss wine options, our server offered to help... More

Carlos P, Owner at Applewood Inn Restaurant, responded to this review

when we fail so spectacularly there is very little to say than to extend my deepest, personal apologies. It is particularly hurtful that we lost the patronage of a guest that had Applewood in high regard. There is no excuse for a single failure like this but in fairness to our restaurant team that works very heart I would like... More

The dinner and breakfast food and service were wonderful in a relaxing location. We loved the 5-course chef dinner.

Applewood Inn Restaurant is one of the finest dining establishments in the North Bay. Excellent Service, very nice facility, and the food was terrific! I had the salmon belly and avocado appetizer with the King Salmon entrée. Both were cooked to perfection. The sauces and seasonings were light and went very well with the fish. I can't wait to go...

Excellent food creatively prepared. Had the king salmon and cooked perfectly. The setting is among the redwoods at the Applewood Inn. Service is good if slightly haphazard at times. The restaurant itself is well appointed, however a freshening of the decor may be in order.

We had the chef's tasting menu, and it was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant and the hotel as well.

We've been eating at this restaurant for years and it never disappoints. The food is unique, fresh, local, seasonal, and beautifully presented. If you love wine, try the Chef's Pairing menu.

The restaurant at Applewood Inn has earned a Michelin star, and deserves it. Lovely ambience, and professional service highlight original food offerings. Breakfast also is a wonderful experience: homemade quince jams if you enjoy that, fresh eggs from their own chickens.

We warned our waiter that we share our food--he smiled. We found it hard to decide what our favorites were among the four apps and entrées! The scallop app was amazing! The veggie entrée was delicious--bit of a surprise to the meat lover! Seabass also a treat. And presentation was beautiful! The Inn looks lovely and nearby river is great... More

While staying at the Applewood Inn for a reunion of my college roommates and their wives, we had a group dinner at Applewood's restaurant as well as dinners with a smaller group on two other nights. The appetizers and entrees were all perfectly prepared. I found the lamb chops to be my favorite, though my wife loved the salmon. We... More
