Vegan Surprise

I never thought vegan food could be this delicious and nutritious. Whether breakfast or dinner, the choices were mouth-watering and the presentation was a delight. Beware! You will be converted!

For those of you who claim you hate vegetarian restaurants, it is only because you have not visited Raven's. No matter what your dietary preferences are this is gourmet food at it's best!

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Mendocino, it fully met our expectations for a special meal. We were surprised that there are two menus - one traditional and one of Mexican food. We chose from the traditional menu, and our entrees were delicious as was our appetizer. We had delicious local wines, suggested on the... More

Raven's features the most delicious vegan/vegetarian dishes in Northern California! The ingredients are locally grown and organic, perfectly seasoned, and creatively crafted. The service is perfect and the ocean views, warm fireplace, and general ambiance make for a perfect dining experience. I highly recommend their savory polenta for breakfast!

We went here for the annual Mushroom and Wine festival, offering a prix fixe dinner well into the "special occasion" range. I am not especially a fan of vegan dishes, but these were some of the best I have had. The appetizers featuring mushroom terrines and other delights were very tasty, but the kale salad that came next was the... More

We had an excellent dinner at Raven's last week. I made reservations understanding that it was vegetegarian though I had not realized that it was vegan, not that I wouldn't have based on that. Anyway, it was very delicious. Vegan and vegetarian has come a loooooong way and Raven's is no small example. We would return if in the area... More

Outstanding flavors, creative food,nice wine list, beautiful ambiance, good service. For those that think vegan or vegetarian is boring, think again. Other than one other restaurant we visited, the food was the best!

The location for this resaturant is lovely - you feel like you are perched in the trees with the Ravens (many in this area), and the dining room was lovely with Frank Lloyd Wright styled furniture, but the meal was expensive and disappointing. While the presentation was lovely, it was bland. The guacamole (at $14 for a half cup) tasted... More

Hi! So sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our cuisine. We work very hard in hopes that all our guests leave happy and satisfied, so are concerned when we hear otherwise…Just to clarify, we hand-make our guacamole and carrot cake from scratch in addition to almost everything on our menu (hand-made pasta etc.). We really appreciate your feedback... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple times, but to be perfectly honest I come for the location more than the food. Raven's has a beautiful, little restaurant garden you can stroll through with veggie beds, flowers and fruit trees set among green paths. And, when you take your seat in the restaurant, you're surrounded by windows which afford... More

Dinner here was our first order of business once settled into our vacation cottage. The food was as inspired and good as we remembered. We shared massaged kale salad, four large vegan ravioli in divine tomato sauce, and a sea palm strudel.
