We had a lovely table by the window and watched the sunset over the bay. Our waitress Holi was the best!! She helped to make our dinner and my surprise engagement very special. Not to mention the food was excellent.

Shrimp cocktails, filet mignon, a deep mellow wine and creme brûlée, What more could you ask for? So that's me settled. My partner was equally pleased with his fish and chips and a share of my dessert. The service was friendly and efficient.

The full breakfast is free if you are staying at the Inn of Tides, and is very nice. The fresh seafood we had for dinner was excellent.

There was excellent variety in the seafood and some nonfish items for those who can not do fish. A wine list that offer a selection from local wineries and international venders. Service was excellent. A thoroughly delightful meal.

What a great dinner we had for my husband's birthday. He had the New York steak done perfectly and I had the delicious prawns and pasta in a creamy lemon sauce. Service was great. Bay view was wonderful. Highly recommend.

If you're arriving in Bodega Bay via Highway 12 (also called Bodega Highway), you will have passed St. Teresa of Avila Church and Potter Schoolhouse of Hitchcock's "The Birds" fame 7 miles back in Bodega. Close to the intersection of Highway 12 and Highway 1...More

For what they are charging the food was lacking. My companion’s veal cutlet was chewy & was sent back. The replacement (overhead being pounded into submission) was reported to have been better, but still a bit tough for veal, bland, and not worth the 5...More

This restaurant is part of the Inn at the Tides Hotel, an upscale hotel overlooking Bodega Bay. It's a little pricey, and is not as popular as the mid-range priced Tide's Wharf Restaurant across the street, The Bay View Restaurant is a more formal setting,...More
