Best waiter ever

The ambiance is fabulous, the jazz duo was excellent, the food superb, but best of all - the waiter Calder.

Our daughter, who lives in Arcata, introduced us to Larrupin on a visit two years ago. We really enjoyed our dinner then, and we were eager to have another meal there. Our second meal was every bit as good as our first. The use of local products and a creative menu make for an excellent meal that is well worth... More

Nice place for a special romantic dinner. Food portions were very large and creative. We had sweet potato gnocchi & grilled cod on mushroom risotto, This was the best meal we had on our 9 day trip to CA (included 4 in San Fran).

I made an error on my previous review of the Larrupin Cafe.I forgot to rate it so the rating showed only one dot.That would be so far from the truth.I think the Larrupin Cafe rival the finest restaurants of San Francisco at a much lower price. We had the prime rib the first time and filet mignon the second.The prime... More

We live several hours to the north and try to time our visits south so that once or twice a year we are passing by during dinner time. The building is beautiful, including the Chihuly sculpture above the staircase., the staff is friendly but plan on a leisurely meal, especially if the place is busy. If the weather is nice... More

We liked being here. The Appetizer Board was great and unique. Had steelhead, very tasty. Nice wines, at reasonable prices. Very hospitable owner. We'd come back.

Located outside of Trinidad, a great place to go have a romantic dinner, its large enough for a large group friends/family. I love their appetizer cheese plate. Never had a disappointing meal here.

We were recommended to go here for dinner during our stay at Trinidad B & B. It is a little out of the way, but so worth it. The decor is unique and fun, the staff was amazing down to every little detail, and the food was just incredible. Especially loved the extra touch of the free "starter board'. Wonderful... More

Always excellent service, ambiance and dining. Great for any event. Love it it in summer with jazz in the patio but great on wintry night with warm fire and lighting.

Larrupin is a real treat for a rural area: beautifully decked out, jeans optional, great atmosphere and a fun and enjoyable, if somewhat expensive, dinner. Not much innovation goes into menu development, but then, it's solid base of repeat diners wouldn't want much change from a predictable choice of meals, mostly quite meat oriented, and predictably delicious. The wine list... More
