I recently got married at the Village Inn. I had never even been to California before so all of my arrangements were made online and over the phone with the owner, Mark. Everything from the venue, to the service, to the food was better than I had even envisioned. Mark really went out of his way to make sure that... More

The owners were so happy to help you with whatever you needed. They had inside and outside seating. Great view of the river. The rooms were very comfortable. We had the best sleep. There were rooms in the main house and rooms across the garden. The garden was very well maintained. No loud parties allowed. We came after dark and... More

What a place!! A perfect setting on the river, a view of the river at any table, wonderful food and bar! Being at the The Village Inn makes us feel like we are in France! And at night time, the inn takes on a 'glow of romance' and 'uniqueness thru-out it's location! And the food!! We have NEVER been disappointed... More

We wanted to try something new and so headed to the Village Inn and Restaurant in Monte Rio, CA. We did make reservations, not knowing if it would be crowded. The food was wonderful: I had the Salmon and it was cooked perfect; my husband had the pasta dish special, and said it was very good and that he'd definately... More

Beautiful and serene outdoor sitting with view of Russian River. Food is equal to the experience. One of the better places to take someone special for for that special occasion.

Delicious clam chowder! Grilled shrimp was good, however the slaw and noodles beneath it took away from the great flavor of the shrimp. Would either order noodles on the side, or rice.

First- it is the best place to dine on the Russian River- unless you are in a canoe. From my 3-4 dinning experiences at the VI- I was always impressed with the professional service - especially in a 'rural' place like Monte Rio. Even when they were busy, our meals were ordered and served in a 'timely' fashion. And they... More

I live in Guerneville, just down the road from Monte Rio, and I love this place. I could sit on the outside deck and eat/drink forever, gazing at the Russian River below. The bar makes truly great drinks; the food is always cooked perfectly, and the service is always prompt and helpful. I recommend the brie appetizer, and (as opposed... More

Ok, I have to say that my wife and son loved this place. I had the pork tenderloin, because it was not Friday or Sat, so no prime rib, and I either didn't see the filet mignon, or cheaped out. Anyway, I got about 5 little oreo-sized pieces of pork. While they were reasonably tasty, I left feeling robbed and... More
