Wonderful restaurant in the heart of Mendocino, it feels like entering someone's home. Customer service is wonderful, our hostess escorted us to the Garden dining room, in the back of the house, and our waitress was accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu. We split the crab cake appetizer (the portion was quite generous) and it was already served in 2... More

Located in a house off the main street. Decor has some attention to detail, good natural lighting. Plan on spending your time enjoying your meal. If you eat slowly, linger with conversation, the staff will not rush you...and this food should not be rushed. There is time for an aperitif before your appetizer (and they have good ones listed), and... More

Great food, sweet location in a garden just off the main drag. We enjoyed the nettle soup, crab cakes, lamb shank, and spinich-mushroom crepe.

Albeit, it was a Monday night, but if you're open and serving guests, a restaurant should put out at least a good service. My wife and I experienced our first major culinary disappointment in this "left-of-Berkeley" bastion of locavores - Mendocino, CA. We've been escaping here for long weekends in this coastal paradise, 3 hours north of San Francisco for... More

Located in a lovely old home, the menu was simple but quite lovely. We had the duck and the chicken. I would say the best rest. in town. Nice wine list. Try the beet salad, yummy

This place is a tiny bit hard to find. It seems like it's in a converted home, a little bit away from the busy parts of Mendocino. I promise you that it's worth the effort to seek it out. The food is just plain outstanding. If you're there for lunch, I strongly recommend the Bouillabaisse - it's simply fantastic. The... More

Founded by Margaret Fox, who was once lionized by the New York Times "in the same breath" as their restaurant critics lionized Alice Waters, of famed Chez Panisse. Margaret is no longer the proprietor, but some of her magic is still there, kept alive by the dedication of the current staff. Having owned a B&B in town since 1985, I've... More

The food at this little café was delicious. I had free range chicken with white cheddar risotto and a lemon grappa crema. It was wonderful. We were there in March (near the end of the off-season) so we were able to walk in without a reservation, but we understand this place gets very crowded during the season, and we can... More
