It could have been the wine, because we had the wine pairings with the taster menu, but it was an excellent meal. We had fun too. It wasn't stuffy or overcrowded. The food was beautiful. there was a scallop dish that was outstanding that night.

We celebrated our anniversary with dinner here. It was a cold, rainy night, and Applewood restaurant was just the perfect antidote -- the rustic setting, woodsy dining room with a fire in the fireplace, cozy and not too big. Our meal was first rate. I had the roasted beet salad, my husband started with the scallop appetizer. Both of us fish entrees, both were excellent. The deserts were just superb; the lemon tart was outstanding. Service was friendly and attentive; the waiter was well-informed about food and wine selections. Applewood is quite expensive so we would save it for a special night out, but if you are in the mood to splurge, this is a great choice.

We had a Groupon special for two 2.5 course meals (one dessert) here, including a Russian River bottle of wine. The shrimp appetizer came with uni, which is not for everyone. The beet salad was excellent. The mains, trout and steak, were very good. The trout came with a ginger miso broth that was excellent. The dessert, chocolate mousse cake with espresso coffee ice cream, was awesome. We had a bottle of 2009 Paul Mathew Pinot noir, which was so good we visited the winery in Graton the next day.

We stayed three nights at the inn and dined twice for dinner and three times for breakfast. All meals were delicious and service was great. Best deal is Sunday evening when they serve a three course fixed price menu. Also on Sundays, they do not charge a corkage fee if you bring a Russian River Valley wine.
