I've been here several times because it's convenient for many of my friends, and because they have small private rooms good for working dinners. But it is almost always disappointing. The decor looks like a funeral home. The food is just ok - not an interesting menu, and it's overpriced. The service is typically slow. On the plus side, it... More

Delicious breakfast buffet. The large variety of items offered one a great opportunity to make breakfast the most important meal of the day.

If you are ever in Santa Rosa CA...Kaiser Permanente for instance or a visit, this is a great bar and restaurant combo, even though it is "attached" to a hotel. Bar is light and lively...good bartenders, very attentive and good mixologists....tell 'em what you want and they will make it 'your' way! Good bar menu too. Food prepared & presented... More

Overall good place to eat and drink right off the 101 freeway. I think some of the previous low-star reviews were totally unfounded, my wife and I thought Equus was just fine. Upon arriving, I was given a wine & drink menu on an iPad; pretty darn cool! The iPad was a great tool for selecting our bottle of wine... More

This is a beautiful restaurant and location. They have a huge selection of fine wines by the glass or bottle. We shared several appetizers, and they were all delicious - especially the ahi. Our service was a little slow - only negative.

We had the breakfast buffet both mornings, and it was ok, not great. The fresh fruit (cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, berries) did not taste freshly cut, but a couple of days old. The coffee brought to our table: one had a lipstick stain, and the other was lukewarm. Scrambled eggs with cheese and peppers, link sausages and bacon were average.

There is a reasonable selection on the menu and the prices were very good for the quality and service received. Breakfast for those wanting a healthier option was very good too, even if there wasn't too much to choose from.

Good food and drinks but the bar area is sooo cold that I couldn't take my jacket off and had to order soup! It was mid 70s outside. That being said, the soup and salad I ordered was excellent.
