We returned to GEI for another special occasion dinner. This time pre-Valentine day. Every time we've dined there, our seating has been in a different room. Each has it's own ambience. This time a window table looking out to the front onto the street. We can easily say this north valley destination has been incredibly consistent in terms of service,... More

We were so lucky to find this place as most of the accommodation in Sonoma and Napa was overpriced and looked tired and uninviting. We spoke to Francine who sounded so nice and convincing, that we drove half an hour from Napa to Glen Ellen. We were not disappointed. We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. So stylish...

This is a review for the restaurant as we didn't stay on the property. The service was great and the food was really good. Great find in this little Sonoma town. We ordered cocktails including a Martini and they were made well. The food was great and underrated in my opinion. Service was great and the ambiance was a good... More

We needed to be in Glen Ellen 4 consecutive weekends last summer. We tried two different places before finding the Secret Cottages at the Glen Ellen Inn our 3rd weekend. It was so superior to our other accommodations that we changed our 4th weekend so that we could stay there again. This place is special. The cottages are cozy and... More

Since we visit Sonoma annually we have a tendency to return to the same establishments but decided to branch out this year. We are happy we did...our dinner at Glen Ellen Inn was wonderful. Steve was our server and he timed our meal perfectly from soup to dessert. We enjoyed the French Onion soup which was delicious. For my entrée... More

We seem to travel to Glen Ellen every year. We always stop for a great dinner at the Glen Ellen Inn. I had the onion soup as a starter. The soup was on top of my list for the onion soups I have had. I believe they incorporate red wine into the soup for a over the edge flavor. Melted... More

A cool evening with a storm brewing, sitting on a porch overlooking a creek, twinkle lights and good conversation. ..what could be better? Their food! I had the Chile lime cilantro prawns on a bed of greens and quinoa, the salmon was moist and with a delicious bed of exotic greens and sauce. The chocolate truffles and coconut ice cream... More

Had dinner with friends that we happened to be in town at same time and we got lucky to find a reservation. Super glad we did. All of our meals were awesome! Dinners we had were steak, butternut squash rav, seafood special and a kobe burger, with an oysters app. Every meal was delicious. This place will not disappoint.

Some places just stand out. This is one of them. Location, atmosphere, wonderful flavorful food. I didn't plan on going here, it was spontaneous and delicious.

The title attempts to capture our experience - friendly staff, a relaxed yet attractive dining experience, with delicious meals! Five of us (2 US-based; 3 Germany-based) enjoyed a first evening meal at the Glen Ellen Inn in late August, 2016, and found ourselves returning again a few days later because we'd enjoyed our meals so much. Burgers, oysters, lamb meatballs,... More
