We have been coming to Guerneville for years and I have always wanted to dine at this elegant little restaurant that boasts California French Fine dining. My husband and I were sorely disappointed. There was a Duck Confit and a Chicken dish with a Onion Confit but those appeared to be the only French inspired dishes on the menu. I... More

I've been wanting to have dinner at this restaurant for the last 8 years last night I finally did it and was extremely disappointed. The bread they served was not very good store bought sour dough. We both had the Caesar salad, I thought it was ok but my hubby thought it lacked the anchovies. I had the chicken with... More

We were surprised by how average this restaurant was given the many glowing reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant has very little character - it's just a large space with negligible effort on decoration (although there is a plastic model Eiffel Tower to remind people it claims to be a French restaurant). The waitress was friendly but she stumbled over the... More

After reading reviews expectations were much higher. Wine list sas for upscale Sonoma county rest. Tiny pours. Small portions. Rushed service. Asked for anchovies for Caesar was told they weren't doing any special requests. They had them. Used in dressing. Asked for extra veggies instead of mashed potatoes, was told they would charge extra. Salmon with glaze too sweet. Just... More

This is a great restaurant to bring the family. The place is clean and the staff is extremely friendly. The food was very good with a large selection to choose from. This place serves good food at a reasonable price. Can highly recommend this place in your travels to Guerneville.

Chef Patrick can cook. I would describe this as bistro fare, with a California French emphasis. The fish specials are usually fresh and perfectly prepared. Steak usually cooked a little on the rare side, which is fine, but if you want medium rare, don't order rare.

Even though I had researched ahead on Trip Advisor and selected this restaurant because of the overwhelming positive reviews, I wasn't really expecting it to be as good as it was. The service was excellent - very friendly waitress. The food was exceptional both for presentation and taste. We started with tomato mango soup and I wasn't actually crazy about... More

We found them inexplicably almost empty mid-evening on Memorial Day. The waitstaff was warm and welcoming; the menu varied. interesting, and delicious. Their new dessert - a pear cooked with two icecreams, berries in merlot, etc. was simply the best I ever tasted anywhere. Don't miss it if you're nearby.

We dined at this restaurant twice while visiting.. Wonderful experience and Chef Patrick and his staff are top tier! He made every customer feel very welcome and checked on tables to assure everything was perfect. Highly recommend it in this small town!
