Let me start off by saying this is a must visit for "dinner" if you are anywhere in the Santa Rosa or Forestville area. After a week of wine tasting and fine dining all over the Sonoma and Napa area, this place got the award for the best dinner that was not expected. I've found following TripAdvisor you usually can't... More

This is a go to place when you want to enjoy lunch in a wine property setting. You don't see vineyards from your table but your in a wooded setting with lots of wine close at hand. Nice selection of dishes and wine list menu is good. As a family we shared every item selected, from meats, cheese, scallops and... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary dining at this lovely rustic restaurant in he Russian River wine country. It was warm enough to eat outside initially, then they brought out a few heat lamps. We were seated on the lovely patio and treated to some very good entertainment during dinner. Dinner menu is very limited and expensive. Wine menu... More

My wife and I ate her during our trip to Sonoma for her birthday. RRV has a fantastic little tasting room with a small restaurant. We stared with a simple bread and cheese appetizer where we discovered the most amazing olive oil! The wines were very good and loved the environment. We transitioned from the tasting to dinner and it... More

This winery/eatery has been through many incarnations. I think the most interesting detail is at dusk when the bats leave their nests to feed. The food is forgettable. Eating outside is always casual and that's the experience.

This is a great spot for a nice meal outdoors in the Russian River wine country. The winery is scenic and historic. The gardens are beautiful. Lunch and dinner are served on a large patio, weather permitting. The inside dining room is also inviting. Food is good but pricey. We enjoyed a number of different dishes tonight. As usual, prices... More

Amazing spot for wine tasting, on their outdoor patio. Overlooks the vineyards for incredible late afternoon relaxing. The restaurant itself, has tasty food, yet has a limited, small menu. The service was a little less desirable--I asked for salt, which the waiter never brought. Water glasses were dry for very long periods. Overall, I recommend going for wine tasting and... More

Perfect venue for a lovely outdoor tasting and meal. The afternoon we visited also treated us to a local guitarist. Wines are nice, and service is friendly. The indoor dining seems a little fancier than what we'd enjoy. Charcuterie plate was good, but a very small portion of each offering. Difficult to share with others. House pups meander through the...

We were short on time, hungry, and wishing for a wine tasting experience. The Russian River Restaurant accommodated us. Our waitress had the sommelier stop by the table and discuss what she had open. We selected four different wines based on our interests and lunch order. Each one in our party loved their glass and enjoyed a taste or two... More
