Very good food.

Was crowded the night we went with a local couple who recommended it. Service was attentive but kitchen seemed slow.

Cafe Beaujolais remains one of my favorite restaurants. I've been going for years and it never disappoints. The food is amazing and the ambiance can't be beat. It's an extremely romantic, charming restaurant.

On my second visit to this gem of a restaurant, we had an early dinner just before sunset and the crowds. We had several delicious and beautiful appetizers, light but complex wine and then our entrees. Wow...is all I can say and wish we had saved room for dessert!

This was a cute little spot. Yummy food and wine. Our server was very busy. I think they were a bit understaffed on the night we were there.

Have heard of this place for years and finally managed to eat there. Thought the food would be good albeit expensive. Was pleasantly surprised to find the food excellent and I thought the prices VERY reasonable for quality food in an out-of-the-way town.

What can I say other than "Ce fut vraiment fantastique!!!" We dined at Cafe Beaujolais last night for our final dinner in Mendocino--and were blown away by the quality and absolute perfection of our meal. My husband had Broiled Angus Filet Mignon, Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, Sautéed Broccolini, Point Reyes Bleu Reduction, Cabernet Butter....I had Petaluma Duck Two Ways; Crispy... More

Our best friend has his rehearsal dinner here. The place is small but accommodated at least 50 people. The food prepared just for our party was excellent. Grilled shrimp kebob was fixed with different flavors--yummy! -Pan Seared Halibut was excellent and Almond crusted banana for dessert was excellent!

My husband and I visited this restaurant this spring while staying at the nearby Sea Gull Inn. The restaurant is right behind the inn, and we found it quite by accident. The dinner crowd was robust, even on a Monday night. I would recommend getting reservations. The starter bread basket was a delightful variety of tastes and textures. Our dinners... More

I have been coming to Café Beaujolais since it opened and it is still tops in Mendocino in my book. Everything was perfectly prepared and served. Even when the restaurant is full you can hear your companion without using a cell phone. The wine list is well-chosen and reasonably priced. I will definitively continue to dine here.
