The food here was SF Bay Area quality. The atmosphere was a bit “cold”, perhaps in contrast to the warm Victorian hotel down the street where I was staying. No serious blame, but I found the service overly brisk and borderline inhospitable. I was not...More

Our waitress...I think she might have been the owner was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our first course was the peppered albacore tuna appetizer......delicious! We next shared the...More

This was our favorite meal in Mendocino after several eating well for three days. All the ingredients were fresh, wide range of local wines/beers and the service was friendly and accommodating. A “must dine” while in Mendocino!!

Had a nice dinner in this cute house admiring their wonderful garden right outside. Spouse and I had our own delicious salads with fresh greens, good dressings and shared the fish dish- was very good. I'd recommend this cafe and would go back!

We have eaten here a few times in the past few years. Our dinner was delicious and flavorful. We shared some small plates an an entree. The only thing I would change is the ridiculous split fee. It is a turn off, especially when you...More

The food is excellent. From the appetizers (albacore tuna and onion tart) to the main lunch (beet salmon, gnocchi with greens, and delicious burgers too). Nice beer selection too. I would definitely go back and maybe try their dinner menu.

Wonderful food, great service. The in house bread that arrives first is beyond delicious: lemon oil and flaked sea salt, just the right amount. The prawns were the best ever; huge and perfectly cooked. We'll go back again, next year in Mendocino.

This review is about SANDRA. I booked room through their website, about 9 days in advance. Somehow their systems double booked. Sandra emails me to say so sorry, let me rebook you at the Allegria Inn with my friend. I agree under the assumption everything...More

No, there was not a dress code as far as I know. We wore dress jeans and dresses, but overall folks were very casually dressed. Quite comfortable. Enjoy!

Yes, call them in advance. There are a few rooms and an outside area if weather permits. There were several groups of 6-10 each time I was there.

Trillium is a restaurant and inn. We think of ourselves as casual fine dining, with indoor and outdoor dining, weather permitting. We focus on serving fresh, seasonal, organic California cuisine. We try to source as many things locally as possible. Local, wild caught fish, grass fed meats, organic veggies. We have a small, 3 room B & B above the Restaurant with cute rooms with ocean views, and breakfast each morning.
