“Beautiful scenery, good food, great service”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We visited the Albion River Inn Restaurant for our anniversary. We went to happy hour and got great recommendations from the bartender. Plus there was complimentary, delicious hot appetizers. The owner came by and chatted with us for awhile at the bar. Everyone was very friendly. At dinner, we ordered the halibut meal and the cheeseburger. Both were great. We had called earlier that week to make a reservation at a window seat - definitely worth it! The gal busing tables and refilling waters was really on top of things. My water glass was never empty. And the desserts were excellent. Possibly the best creme brule ever. And the dessert portions were huge. We will definitely visit this restaurant again and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Mendocino area looking for a romantic evening.

“Best restaurant near Mendocino”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

The food is superb, the wine amazing, the single malt collection vast, and the view is wonderful. Make sure to attend one of Steve's cooking classes too! Learn a lot and eat while watching Steve whip up his great creations..

“What a great surprise”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

We decided to drop in here for dinner this evening and were greatly surprised by the ambience. service, and most of all, the food. We arrived a little after 5pm and enjoyed a leisurely cocktail during their happy hour. The bartender makes an excellent Cosmopolitan!! There was a decent wine list and we had a had a half bottle of La Crema Chardonnay. My husband and I had the halibut and it was prepared with a crab & herb crust in a lemon butter sauce along with wild rice, asparagus and tomatoes. It was just outstanding!!! Our young adult son ordered the NY steak. There was a cheese topping that our waiter said was similar to a gorgonzola cheese and we requested it be prepared without. It was done just to his liking and served with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and summer vegetables, shitake mushrooms in a demi-glacé. Oh yes, there were also beets which he would not eat!!! He also had sorbet for dessert, watermelon and mango. We all had a taste and it was delicious and refreshing. The service was very good. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant if you find yourself in the Mendocino/Ft.Bragg area.

“A night out with my daughter.”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

My daughter took me to dinner the night before I came back home to Texas. We had a table by the window where we could see the ocean and the sun setting. It was a beautiful evening and the food was wonderful.

“Good...but has lost quality”
Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

We have been enjoying this place for 25 years. It has always stood above all resteraunts in the area. For the last 2 visits the food has just been average-Fish with a lemon bitter sauce....way too bitter.
Lime prawns way over cooked with very little sauce.
Hope they get it back!
