My husband and I had dinner for our 20th anniversary at the Farmhouse Inn restaurant while staying at the Inn. It was superb. We splurged on the multicourse food and wine paring and it was a great pleasure. We have travelled quite a bit and splurge on good food and wine when we can. We appreciated the excellent service in a comfortable upscale environment. The cozy restaurant is a great example of easy elegance. It's not the least bit pretentious or stuffy. The décor and service was spot on without being over the top.

Here is a restaurant absolutely deserving of its Michelin star. The atmosphere, service and food are superb. The wine list is outstanding and the ambience casual but refined. Servers are highly knowledgeable and expert but warm, friendly and in every way accommodating. This is truly a gem and a very special dining experience.

An exceptionally well-run place, very professional staff, impeccably prepared food, innovative menu, lengthy, diverse wine list. Handsome old home converted to include rooms that are sometimes formal, with some less so. Other diners can be very casually dressed for such a "fine restaurant," but that's o.k. with owners. Reservations a necessity. About ten miles from Healdsburg. Worth a dinner if you're nearby.

We had been eagerly waiting for an opportunity to try this restaurant having been disappointed with the closure of Cyrus in Healdsburg two years ago. Face it, we are spoiled with food in the Bay Area, and one great restaurant begins to seem like the other. This is a lovely setting and felt like an elegant but casual French farm house. Having dinner in the summer meant that it was still light to enjoy the countryside. The service is a tad more casual but gracious and efficient. You certainly feel pampered. The food is exquisite in taste and presentation. The courses were very nicely paced. We did the four course, but ordered a single wine since I was driving back and did not want the full pairings. I had a lamb crudo which was like sashimi. Every garnish added another layer of flavor and texture. The amuse bouche was a strawberry gazpacho with incredible depth. It reminded me of the soups I have had at Chez Panisse. Both the halibut and pork chop entrees were delicious and just the right size. The desserts matched the dinner which is always a challenge. I have never had an apricot soufflé before and now have to find the recipe. This is certainly worth the drive (only an hour north of Marin) and we will be back again and again. I would feel totally at ease in bringing any out of town guest here.

We have been to the Farmhouse several times. Every time we are in Sonoma we make a special evening just to go for dinner and be pampered by their outstanding food, wine and staff. My partner & I first went for his birthday and have since returned with world travelers who have eaten in the best restaurants in the world. Our friends are astounded that they find such fantastic food and service in a rather out of the way location. No matter how savvy you are about wine, allow the sommelier to make your selections. He know what he is doing and makes your experience all that much better.
