Delightful surprise.

Small and set in an old house. Make reservations and be ready to be impressed. The blue cheese salad is excellent as is the salmon.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The upper dining room was very lovely and our appetizer special of steak tartare was out of this world. I really recommend the duck two ways.

We always eat at Cafe Beaujolais on our yearly visit to Mendocino! I enjoy the fact that we can count on certain entrees on the menu. We only had one issue. My husbands steak was overcooked and then when they brought the second one, it was way undercooked. They did get it right on the 3 rd try. The gazpacho... More

We always stop here for lunch when visiting Mendocino. The food is excellent and the wait staff very friendly. I always stock up on their Beaujolais Herb Blend - it's great in everything!

The food was excellent! I had filet mignon and it was cooked just right. The atmosphere is quiet, in an old house, quite charming. I would recommend getting a reservation because it is quite popular and books up fast.

Five of us ate there. I had the filet - best steak in Mendocino, done to perfection! My hat's off to them.

We'd made reservations at Café Beaujolais for our 44th anniversary. It's a restaurant we had long wanted to try and expectations were high. For the most part it lived up to reviews, but a few service glitches and side dishes that failed to impress left us mildly disappointed. I'll still call it very good, but it fell short of what...

This was recommended by other Trip Advisor visitors and all recommendations were spot on! The restaurant itself is in an old Victorian home that also features a wonderful garden and it's own kiln for making fresh breads. The food is exquisite and service outstanding.
