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

My wife and I had a delectable dinner here during our visit to Mendocino. Based on reading other reviews I was already expecting a great meal. The food was just outstanding and supremely fresh. I had the chicken with risotto and green beans and just savored every bite. It was simple but very flavorful. My wife had the filet mignon... More

Cafe Beaujolais is a restaurant with a long history in the charming town of Mendocino. The cooking is precise and flavorful with the use of freshest ingredients. The wine service and the wine list are absolutely first rate. It is deep in wines of Anderson Valley but also strong in Sonoma wines as well. The service is attentive and welcoming.... More

Cafe Beaujolais has a great menu and wine list. The selection of wines by the glass is huge. You can sample different wines by getting a glass each. Both evenings the dinner was outstanding although one minor note is that the sauce on the pork chop did not go well with wine. Very highly recommended.

The great service began as we first entered the restaurant. When our reserved table wasn't ready on time the hostess gave us glasses of sparkling wine while we waited. Each of our courses was beautifully prepared and artfully presented. The salad du jour was a delicious blend of kale and farrow and The entree special was sturgeon served with homemade... More

SO to their credit, I had not been feeling too well, so I asked if the chef could prepare a vegetarian pasta dish, off the menu. They did, and it was fairly inedible with weird stuff like turnip. I did watch my husband devour his food and he raved about it. The service, decor, and ambiance were amazing.
