Several years ago we had gone to the Applewood Inn Restaurant and thought it was overpriced and the food just so so. The desk clerk at our Inn said we should go there on a Sunday night. That they offered a 3 course dinner for $30 and if you took wine made in the Russian River, there was no corkage fee. We figured that was pretty cheap, we would give them a try.
I did expect small servings and not great service, since we were going to order the special and take in our own wine. Not so.
The waiter immediately opened our wines and also brought an ice bucket for the white. The first course was a huge salad, with pear, blue cheese arugula and mixed greens, with a wonderful dressing. The entree was duck confit and the best prepared duck I have ever had. The dessert was a lemon iced ginger cake. I am not a cake person so this was just OK to me. This is the reason for the 4 star and not 5.Overall I would say be sure to go to the Sunday night special. It is a great dining experience without paying the higher prices.
