I have been coming here for over 15 years and I'm never disappointed. You can enjoy a simple "small plates" experience or a gourmet 4-course dinner all in the same location. The staff is attentive and friendly (ask for Lupe at the bar). The presentation of the food is artful and always excellent quality (locally sourced ingredients). Rosemary exemplifies pride... More

St. Orres is a must for any visit to the Mendonoma! (northern Sonoma/Southern Mendocino coastal area). Rosemary and her crew will take excellent care of you! It's a warm and intimate place to dine and take in the beauty of this coast. The food feels elegant but the place itself casual, with memories of a long forgotten coastal time. The... More

Friendly staff. Dated, poorly kept property. The food is reasonably good, but way overpriced. We do not plan to come back anytime soon.

I was here in 1985 and loved it so I was excited when we chose and reserved a special table for my husband's birthday. When we arrived, it had been given away! The maitre D seemed like he could care less. Then the pheasant and risotto we ordered was tasteless, dry and seemed like it had been frozen, defrosted and... More

My wife and I have visited St. Orres over 20 times the past three years. The food is superb. It is locally sourced and fresh. And the bar is exceptional. (We usually sit in the bar and order smaller dishes from a broad menu.)The staff is delightful. All in all this place is a destination worth noting.

There is food served in the bar area which includes small plates. The atmosphere is very friendly. The bar drinks and food are excellent. Great for a more upscale casual evening. The restaurant also offers a more formal menu which is gourmet. All excellent. This is the best restaurant in the Sea Ranch and Gualala area.

Excellent food, quaint space but service is slow. We were ok with that because we were kicking back and enjoying the atmosphere, plus we were forewarned.

We stayed in Gualala and the owner of the hotel suggested this place. We had just hiked so planned on eating in the bar. The bartender was so sweet and had us sit in the main restaurant. Wow, the food is excellent. We only had burgers but the other entrees looked wonderful. And the presentation was fun to see. Lovely... More

Were able to have wine and appetizers outside so our dog could join us. We had the crab cakes and shrimp quesadillas - very tasty. Yum yum
