Went here for lunch. I admit it was to get to the coconut cream pie with the macaroon crust. Good sign when a bottle of ice cold water was placed on the table. Reminded me of our trip to Europe. Started with the two soups served that day, seafood bisque and gazpacho. This place is also a bakery and the... More

The service wasn't great. There was a lot of downtime between dishes. The starting bread is cold and wine can only be purchased by the bottle. The food is fine, but not great. I expected a bit more given the other reviews.

The food is always fresh, but the menu doesn't vary much except for the specials; the bread, though, is worth getting many loaves of and taking home to freeze.

Café Beaujolais has been around for ages and is always busy. The food is first rate and service is excellent plus the charm of its cozy interior makes for a special evening. All ingredients are fresh and well prepared but the bread make daily on the premises is exceptional. Be sure to make reservations, it's a small place.

We went to Cafe Beaujolais for our anniversary tonight. The first time we dined here was aprox. 1986, and we have returned many times since. Both of us ordered the duck, which was served with yukon gold potatoes and swiss chard. Everything was fantastic including the wine choices.

Every time I go to Mendocino I immediately get excited about my upcoming dinner at Cafe Beaujolais. It's always an event. The event. The food at Beaujolais is fantastic. Always perfectly prepared, innovative and well worth the price. It's the best restaurant in Mendocino by a long stretch, and though it is expensive, it isn't any more expensive than most... More

Tucked into a cottage in beautiful Mendocino, Cafe Beaujolais features upscale food in a charming, relaxed setting. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the location offers a chance to stroll through the village. The menu features some local ingredients and some from elsewhere, but our dishes were all good. The duck two-ways was by far the best thing we... More

Cafe Beaujolais is a cute little French restaurant in Mendocino. Aside from great food, what sets it apart from the rest is the service. The girls working there are great, experienced servers, with attention to detail. They make you feel at home. When it comes to price, it's average for Mendocino dinner spots around $30 a plate, but as for... More

We had a lovely romantic dinner for 2 and the ambiance ,food and service was way above average. The wine list by the glass is outstanding. Crab cakes amazing and the pork chops over polenta with crisp asparagus wonderful. We will definitely come again next year .
