After extensive research of dining in the wine country area, we opted for a romaric dinner at Applewood Inn Restaurant. We utilized Trip Advisor and decided our chances were higher than average for a great experience. The scenic drive out was the highlight of the evening. While the Inn did have a romantic appeal to it, the restaurant did not... More

We had a great meal and the service was wonderful. We left $221.00 poorer. We each had an appetizer and a main dish. With a glass of wine paired with each dish. We shared a dessert. It was my husbands birthday. They did a nice job of writing happy birthday and puttingg a candle on the dessert we shared. One... More

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.

Just had the most amazing dinner here! But the Canoli and the Bignets were the icing on the cake! While we were rolling out from eating a beautifully delicious 3 course meal, it was worth every bite and every penny! Loved it!

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
