“Wine country Jewel.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This restaurant is in the Russian River Vineyards winery, the food is excellent, the service excellent, and the setting is wonderful. The scallops and seabass was one of the better meals we have ever had. Their wine list is very affordable. All in all, a great experiece, we will be back.

“A nice getaway...”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We visited more often before it was purchased, but it is still a pleasant place to have a good meal at a good price.

“Stumbled in for a wine tasting stayed for dinner”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Dawn took great care care of us on our 25th wedding anniversary trip dinner. We started with crab shooters, then crab bisque, I had sea bass and my wife had the portabello mushroom entree, finished up with the bread pudding.

“Select the mushroom ravioli”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This restaurant offers vegetarian dishes, from ovolacto to vegan. The mushroom ravioli were wonderful. We choose from the menu since the tasting menu offered less adventurous choices. Even though hosted by the Russian River Vineyard, the menu included wine from other wineries. Good value for the dollar.

“Extreemly Disappointing!!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Visited this restaurant on several occasions in the past and did some wine tasting, nice property with a warm ambiance,However! We made a dinner reservations on "New Years Eve"for 5pm,
Set menu for $89 per person,very expenive but the menu looked good on-line so we decided to give it a try, We arrived at 5pm sharp the place was not busy,we got a window seat by the patio,It was freezing! The staff seemed confused, lighting at the tables was non-exsistant, they were trying to light some hardware store candles that kept blowing out and they finaly gave up,
The first course was yellow-tail served on a small spoon which only for it was mentioned that tuna was present, it was a few crumbs with a vinagrette...Salad or oyster shooters was the next choice, again! mediocre, the entree's we selected were New york steak and Scallops with raviolli and again it was sub par, steak was chewey ( at medium rare)scallops and raviolli were bland, dessert was nothing to write home about. Just to wrap it up from start to finish it was NOT a good experience from the waiter not knowing the wine list to the food being of diner quality, This was a insult to fine dining, Too many good restaurants in Sonoma county to was your time or money on this place.
