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 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

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

After driving past the Applewood Inn for several years, we finally made a reservation for dinner on a Sunday evening in January, 2015. We should not have waited so long! Sunday dinner includes the Russian River Menu -- a fixed price three course meal. My wife and I both enjoyed the featured coffee encrusted rib eye beef. The salad was... More

The two of us had a dinner using a groupon coupon -the meal was excellent and the service supreme. We both had breast of duck, best I have had in a long time, my wife the risotto appetizer and I had the scallop with fresh fruit -both outstanding. 2 excellent deserts and the included wine was a glass each of...

Food and service was extraordinary. We had dinner one night, two breakfasts and even came back just for dessert and coffee while staying at the Inn. Very charming restaurant.

This restaurant had very good food, a not especially adventurous menu, and great wine selection. Since we were staying at the inn, we could share a bottle of wine and not worry about driving afterward.

We had the chef's tasting menu, which included 5 courses. For $75, the portion sizes were small and the meal was decent, but nothing really stood out. The soup and scallop had a little more flavor. The trio of desserts were good, but as to be expected for dessert. The salad was pretty plain and the lamb was pretty plain.

We did not stay in the Applewood Inn, but it looks like a nice country inn with spa services. The restaurant had one michelin star for 2 years a few years back. The service is very good and probably the best in the area. The food is also very good. As usual in the area try the local wine especially... More
