Service was efficient and pleasant. It was a very busy place but still had an ambient feel to it. I would like to visit again:)

While camping just north of Ft Bragg, we decided to splurge with lunch at Cafe Beaujolais in the quaint town of Mendocino based on other great reviews on Trip Advisor. What a wonderful find! We had the prawn fettuccine which had the most incredible, light but rich sauce, lots of prawns and homemade fettuccine. One of the best meals ever.... More

I had wanted to go to Cafe Beaujolais for a very long time as I was familiar with its reputation (which I now know to be the Cafe's reputation when owned by Margaret Fox). Cafe Beaujolais is very small. And, to me, claustrophobic. It is very nice that they offer an assortment of aperitifs to enjoy before dinner - quite... More

Stopped by for a dinner on vacation based on the strength of the TA reviews, and was not disappointed. Honestly can't remember what we ordered (the vacation is just a blur now; should have written my review earlier) but we were all quite impressed with our meals - it was one of the better ones on the trip overall. Service... More

We arrived without reservations and were seated fairly quickly. My husband got a filet mignon, and it was no where near Medium rare (it was well) and if it was 5 oz, we would have been surprised. My fish was good. We were also seated in this back area of the house, so there was ambiance that was lacking versus... More

The Café Beaujolais is in a rather small, L-shaped room, which seats about 30 maximum. It is in an old house at the end of a street in Mendocino. The food is very well prepared, and the service very attentive. My wife had sturgeon, and my daughter, Halibut. I had lamb chops. It is a very special place and highly... More

I share the view of several others that this place is somewhat living on its reputation. It clearly has a devoted clientele; we had an early evening reservation and the place was packed to the rafters. But although the food and service were fine, I didn't feel it justified the price point it places itself at.
