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

This charming restaurant is excellent for both special occasions and a casual meal (in the bar area). Their quality is always very high and the staff very attentive. The bar area is friendly and serves wonderful "small" plates. It is a favorite of locals and visitors to the area.

We had sunday brunch at St Orres and it was the perfect place for our last day in Sea Ranch. The food was diverse, organic, beautifully presented and delicious. The wait staff was wonderful. One of our little 5yr olds was hungry and his cranky meter was starting to ping in the red zone. Though we were a party of... More

We've been going to St. Orres for years, for romantic "couples" dinners dating back to the 1970s, to wedding celebrations, memorial brunches and many other occasions with family and friends who live in northern California. We love the venue -- a beautifully restored piece of period architecture, with onion-shaped domes paying homage to the Russian trappers and traders who settled... More

Noticed this eye catching restaurant when we arrived for a weekend stay. Dropped in, looked at the menu and made reservations for the following night. The inside of the restaurant is as stunning s the exterior. The service was top notch. It is a fixed price menu, $50 each the night we were there. Besides fish and beef dishes they... More

We only had brunch this time, but have been here before. The food was excellent and the service too. It wasn't quick service but it is such a great environment that we didn't mind the long wait. The grounds, landscaping, building are all beautiful and unique. We remember our stay there - a couple years ago- very fondly and wish... More
