“Cozy dining with fireplace and water views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Hope that Joaquin is your server. So friendly, talented, and welcoming! My husband had oysters which were $3 each and gigantic. Warm spinach salad was divine. We both had the short rib pappardelle, which was terrific. Really varied menu and decent prices. Very nice wine list and reasonably priced. We had breakfast here the next morning and were equally impressed.

“Wonderful For Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Breakfast at the Duck Club was a great way to end our stay at the Bodega Bay Lodge. We had a table overlooking the bay and from a distance, watched the travelers comings and goings at the local state park. My choice of Crab Meat Eggs Benedict was absolutely wonderful and my husband was equally happy with his Buttermilk cornflake encrusted French toast with chicken apple sausage. Although a bit pricey, our service was great, food was delicious and the view was magnificent and memorable. I would definitely recommend.

“Meh - Not going back.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Well where do I start. OK, the good stuff first: 1) super nice dining room, 2) nice fireplace, 3) one minute walk from our room, 4) the food was really good, but not cheap.

Next, the bad stuff:
1) we called for a reservation, they only could take us at nine pm, upon arrival the dining room was empty on a Sunday night, why make us wait the hour?
2) our server did not know anything about the extensive regional wine list - very disappointing
3) the one pour of wine was super small and the server did not offer a taste off the newly opened bottle. We are in California? Right?
4) due the to the lack of guidance and knowledge I ordered a commonly ordered mixed drink, the bartender did not know how to make it.
4) after giving instructions, the final product only filled up one half of a tumbler :-(,
5) I asked the server to explain the size and his replay was "this just the way the bartender makes them." Literally the glass was full of ice and only filled one inch of drink. The server made no apologies or attempts to remedy the situation. Super unprofessional.

I will not go back due to the service issues. Very upset with the server and lack of caring about the customer experience. Sigh....

If you want a relaxing dinner come here. The timing between appetizer and enter was great and atmosphere is serene. We ordered the Halibut and Cod - outstanding.

“Even Better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We had dinner here on a warm evening and watched the sun sink into the ocean. Incredibly beautiful place, great service, fabulous martinis and succulent sonoma county duck.
