“Our favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have been going to this restaurant for the last 17 years and have enjoyed every dinner. The view is one of the best on the Mendocino Coast, the wait staff so well trained, efficient and always so welcoming. Tony greets everyone with warmth and charm, and then there is the FOOD! Lisa and her staff in the kitchen continue to produce some of the best food available anywhere! For locals and visitors alike, this is worth the trip! The wine list is an excellent blend of local and further afield reasonably priced offerings and according to an expert - the best martinis around!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Words are insufficient to describe the excellence of this restaurant. From the location, to the staff, to the simply wonderful food, everything is top notch. We stopped by early in the day (when they were closed) and they were very welcoming. When we returned for dinner, they welcomed us back as if we were old friends. We spent a bit of time at the bar (which has a wonderful view of the ocean and a funny, friendly bartender) then moved to our table. I had the duck and it was the best duck I had ever eaten. I don't have duck often but I am very glad that I had it there. I would recommend this to anyone for any occasion and I'd go out of my way to go back to this restaurant.

The Bar seating has unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean and sunsets. The food is consistent, delicious, ample, and beautifully served. Wait staff is friendly and unobtrusive. The wine list is affordable and very good.

“Our new favorite restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary and everything was absolutely perfect. We come up to Mendocino at least once per year to get away and reconnect..we live in Sonoma county so our standards are pretty high. The food was amazing, the service outstanding. From the owner who seated us and offered us complimentary champagne in honor of our anniversary to our server who went above and beyond to make sure our experience was amazing...it was truly a memorable experience. The views are unbelievable! Cant say enough great things about this place. We can't wait to come back....enjoy!
