We stayed at the Stanford Inn for one night recently and had dinner and breakfast at Ravens Restaurant. I had very high hopes for the food as I'd been reading about it being one of the top vegan restaurants in the country for years. I was not disappointed! First off, the atmosphere is very romantic without being pretentious. We were... More

The food is delicious and creative, while also being healthy, what I call a win-win-win! my husband has had the breakfast Florentine and the waffles, both of which he loved. I have had the scrambled tofu and oatmeal. It wasn't the best tofu scramble I've had, but it was good. I love oatmeal for breakfast, and it was great. It... More

I think a non-vegan would enjoy this but perhaps not as much as we did. Everything is fresh and mostly home grown. For us, it was heaven.

Went for dinner on a Monday evening. Arrived early and went to bar for a glass of wine. Bar tender was barely able to leave his cool pose to greet or serve us. Had to go go to the host in the restaurant to process our credit card. Gave us round about directions to the garden- down the drive and... More

As a non-vegan travelling with a vegetarian, we quite often end up at restaurants that offer a reasonable attempt at accommodating our varied needs, so it was nice to dine at a true vegan establishment which pulls no punches with its menu. The range of food available should satisfy even the most demanding diner and I have no hesitation in... More

Love this place for its innovative and delicious food. If you are a vegan or a vegetarian you will be in heaven. If you rarely (or never?) eat meatless meals you will be surprised and, I think, satisfied. They now have a cookbook so. you can make the meals you love. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the food is... More

No imagination by the chef. Vegan food can be good...this was not..All food tasted the same...same flavor, same spices, same textures.

We were so looking fwd to this restaurant having read about their menu and knowing that it would not be a struggle for the vegetarian in our family for once to have more than one menu option. But sadly both of us (both gourmet cooks) were disappointed with our meals. We had heard other people rave about the sea vegetable... More

Thank you for writing! I really hope you give us another try--your visit occurred on our "Ethnic Inspirations" (not 'international fare") night which we offer each Wednesday. We feature a discounted special entree and a limited menu. During the summer we typically offer a BBQ dish (for pure fun--a North American dish!), but have done Korean, Indonesian, Indian, Ethiopian, Cuban,... More

The dining room is really beautiful and a pleasure to be in. We are not veg or vegans but came to try it anyway. We ordered salads as appetizers and they were great. The main courses were just good but that is usually the case in Vegan restaurants as they try to mimic meat dishes using vegetables and it is... More

We were two couples celebrating our anniversaries in Mendocino and chose this place because one couple is vegetarian. We arrived 15 minutes early on a Saturday evening with reservations and even though the restaurant was near empty the young man refused to seat us. He found our reservation and said you have to wait until "it's your turn." Ten minutes... More
