I have been eating at Cafe Beaujolais for the past 5 years, and every time I go it is just as good as the first. The service is wonderful, the presentation of their dishes is beautiful, and it tastes amazing. A must for those visiting Mendocino!

This restaurant has lost some of the 'wow' factor over the years. The menu is not as innovative as it once was, but we still enjoyed our recent dinner here. The entree prices are high considering the predictability of the offerings, but everything was well prepared and very fresh.

This restaurant must of changed ownership! It was always my favorite with great servers. I ate there tonight and the food and service were terrible. The worse dining experience I've ever had. My food was not eatable and my husband got sick from his. They still charged us and acted like it was my fault that the food was bad.... More

Café Beaujolais has been around for many, many years. Someone sitting near us told the waitress that they had been there in 1969!! Although the owner and chef are not the same as they were in 1969, the food has not suffered. The crab cakes with the Asian slaw appetizer that I had and the duck two ways that my... More

We went here the weekend of our 20th anniversary because it's supposed to be the best Mendocino has to offer. It's okay but not Mendocino's finest. The food and service were merely okay. We did enjoy desert. The toilets require going outside which means bundling up on cold nights. I'm glad we saved Trillium for our actual anniversary the following... More

"The Beauj" was the North Coast's Chez Panisse in the early days of CA cuisine several decades back; owner Maggie Fox sort of our local Alice Waters. Found it eclipsed by a few other restaurants for a time but, returning to Mendo for a holiday getaway, found this restaurant to once again be on top of its game. Starting with... More

Our innkeepers gave us a list of places that were open for Thanksgiving and this was on the top of our list. The service was great and the food was excellent. The set menu was quite abundant and the restaurant setting is wonderful. Since my husband is not a dessert person, he asked if it is possible to get some... More

Love the food and the atmosphere here. Good breads, service is always lovely. No matter if we come for lunch, dinner or just a dessert, we are always welcomed warmly. Hard to go wrong on the menu. On a recent visit I had a fish soup similar to bouillabaisse. Still dreaming of it and want to try replicating it...the broth... More

This is a lovely little restaurant in Mendocino. It was recommended to us by someone we met traveling and proved to be a great find! We arrived early for our reservation, but we were seated promptly. We celebrated a long road trip with a lovely glass of champagne and then had an amazing dinner with wine. I had duck cooked... More

My first visit to this charming little restaurant was in 1987 (lunch, the day the stock market crashed). Fast-forward through several visits to 2014. Thanksgiving is quite a challenge to any restaurant that dares to stay open, and Cafe Beaujolais met the challenge. Warm welcome, reasonable choices for the holiday (but demerits for dropping the vegetarian option from years past),... More
