We were very excited to get a table at Cafe Beaujolais on our last evening of our tour of California. After reading reviews we were hoping to enjoy a very special dinner. However the meal turned out to be a real disappointment. The food was very poorly presented. My fish was overlooked on a bed of mushy pasta drowned by... More

My husband and I had dinner here last night. The steak tartar was wonderful and the duck was amazing. Thanks for a delicious and special evening!

Have been going there for years. But things change and this restaurant has too. A shame it used to be "The Place" in town to go. Breakfasts were wonderful. Margaret Fox is gone and so to is the need to eat at Cafe Beaujolais.

This restaurant was written up by most as THE PLACE to go in Mendocino, so we went and were not disappointed. Got to eat and thoroughly enjoy for the first time in my life "Sturgeon" and both my wife and I would rate this little restaurant as most worthy of a visit for dinner - well thought out menu with...

My husband and I enjoyed a late lunch here on our last trip to Mendocino. He had a delicious short rib sandwich while I had a tasty ahi sandwich. They bake their own bread here, so you should definitely try that. And the Flourless Lava Cake is not to be missed!

My wife & I have eaten at Cafe Beaujolais several times over the years. It is an intimate spot, with pretty much perfect food. The restaurant is in an old home, so it's warm & close inside. My wife will forever be addicted to the Pan Roasted Sturgeon Filet. It's served in a truffle emulsion sauce with wild mushrooms. She... More

Incroyable. Really. The Escargots were real. Just real. And the prawns were jumbo shrimps. And it all arrived as if in a one symphony. We've brought with us a 2009 Joseph Jewell Pinot Noir, turbed out to be a Burghound 93, if he had only had the chance to taste. Been there 3 years ago and thought of it as... More

I always say "Are you kidding me?!" when I am overcome with amazement or happiness. For our Cafe Beaujolais starter, we had the butternut squash soup—it felt like a warm hug in a bowl. For entree, I had the perfectly cooked rare-medium-rare-ish filet mignon. My friend raved over her sturgeon and roasted veg dish. The local Husch Pinot Noir was... More
