Average at best.

Arrived at 7:15. We were the only people in the dining room. (Not a good sign. Another couple, in shorts and tanks tops, arrived a little later.) Decor is Scandinavian minimalist, but dark. Wine list average, but not too expensive. Service was good (better be, with no one there.) Food had touches... read more

We did not want to drive anywhere for dinner and decided to try the Equus at the Fountain Grove Inn where we were staying. What a nice surprise. Very professional and attentive waiters and good service. The place seemed fancy when we walked in, but we were allowed to come in with sandals on, no remarks there. The menu is... More

This is the kind of bar I wish was in my neighborhood. Hip, swank, great cocktails. I love the fact the bar is across from the actual hotel as opposed to part of the same building. I love the elongated space, too. Wish I had had a meal but next time.

We had 2 dinners here mainly because there wasn't anything else closeby. First nite we had a very good meal and good service. The 2nd nite food was good but service was very spotty. Adequate portions. Staff needs some training.

Equus is attached to the Fountain Grove Inn. We had wonderful, friendly service whilst eating in the dining room. Breakfast selection is adequate, but a bit on the pricey side. The Eggs Benedict are quite delicious but at $14 a plate was not a good value. Dinner options are slim but tasty enough. The atmosphere is quite dark, and the... More

We were in trial in Santa Rosa Superior Court. After closing arguments, we brought our trial team to Equus for lunch. First off, its a stunning restaurant....modern, sleek and comfortable. Second, the fare was delectable and service very good. We had to get in and out within an hour. I ordered the beet salad which was prepared with purple and... More

We were staying in the hotel and decided to dine in the restaurant as there were no other places to eat within waling distance. This is meant to be an upscale restaurant, as reflected by the prices. It is a somewhat small restaurant with only 2 booths, which are not particularly comfortable. The interior is dark and not particularly welcoming... More

We stayed there for New Years night for one night and dinner. We received the complimentary wine tasting which was just plain insulting. We were only allowed one taste, not even red and white. The wines were not good choices and our server was very ammature. This is Sonoma County, if you are going to do this... do it right!... More
