My husband and I dine here whenever we escape to mendocino. We love their home made Austrian Seed Bread, food and wine list. It's quiet, quaint and the food is very good for the price. If you're expecting the French Laundry, you may want to...More

The service was excellent, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was what you would expect from a top restaurant. Menu was nice and varied, with something for everyone, from steak tartare to crab cakes to duck breast. Desserts are worth saving some room for.

Randall and Anne: We are going to Mendocino in a month to celebrate my wives 70th birthday. The night we arrive I plan to dine at Cafe Beaujolais. Like you we have been going to the restaurant since it was owned by Margaret Fox. Our last dinner at the restaurant (about two years ago), was a real disappointment, but I decided to give it one more try. If this doesn't work out it will be our last. I can't believe after your review the restaurant didn't post a reply. I hope they at least made some changes. Thanks for your review.
