We have been coming here over past 15 years plus, it is a place we go to for a good tasting birthday or celebration meal. There is an extended menu with many choices, the staff are always pleasant, and the flavors are delish!

We were passing through Ukiah while on our vacation and decided to give the Garden Cafe a try. And we were very glad that we did! We ordered the Classic Hamburger and had a very fresh garden salad instead of fries. The burger was very large and delicious , as was the salad! The waitress was very helpful as well... More

Our server was very attentive and our food ordered was great. I had the Chicken Picatta and my friend had the seafood Alfredo. Both excellent. Can be pricey as soup and salad does not come with the meal. All the food that passed by our table looked wonderful and very well presented.

A fairly basic menu. Nothing exotic or esoteric. But a perfectly prepared and reasonably priced dinner in a restaurant whose exterior wasn't inviting or attractive. The interior is unremarkable but comfortable. Couples and families; younger and older. Good wine selection. Very good service. I had a steak with veggies and fries. Might have been one of the best steaks I'd... More

We wanted a simple dinner after a long drive. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I ordered the soup, a chicken noodle/vegetable which was delicious and homemade. My wife had a truly fresh salad with fresh tasty greens, beets, and other fresh vegetables. My wife also had coconut breaded prawns. The prawns were enormous, absolutely fresh and cooked carefully...

Stopped here for dinner while visiting in Ukiah. Staff was friendly and helpful. I had eggplant parmesan which came in a generous portion. The marinara sauce was a bit spicy, but I'm a spice wimp. Husband had the senior "giant" ravioli--which weren't very giant and they only brought three. Even for a senior portion, a bit skimpy. But he said... More

We were staying at a motel a couple of doors away from the café. We did not feel like driving so we went here for dinner. What a good choice! We weren't too hungry so we ordered off the senior menu. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and a garden salad. Well, the garden salad was wonderful and large enough... More

This is classic food - comfort style served by very enthusiastic young wait staff. Portions are large so be advised. Wine selection is pedestrian but local. Great place to take your mother in law for lunch or early dinner.
