The restaurant at Applewood Inn has earned a Michelin star, and deserves it. Lovely ambience, and professional service highlight original food offerings. Breakfast also is a wonderful experience: homemade quince jams if you enjoy that, fresh eggs from their own chickens.

“Wonderful getaway!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We warned our waiter that we share our food--he smiled. We found it hard to decide what our favorites were among the four apps and entrées! The scallop app was amazing! The veggie entrée was delicious--bit of a surprise to the meat lover! Seabass also a treat. And presentation was beautiful! The Inn looks lovely and nearby river is great for kayaking. Wonderful getaway place!

“Really First-Rate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

While staying at the Applewood Inn for a reunion of my college roommates and their wives, we had a group dinner at Applewood's restaurant as well as dinners with a smaller group on two other nights. The appetizers and entrees were all perfectly prepared. I found the lamb chops to be my favorite, though my wife loved the salmon. We also had breakfast there every morning (part of the package) and were surprised at the effort they took to come up with something different and creative every morning. The wine list is great as well--hardly surprising given that your in Sonoma. Finally, the service was very accommodating for a group our size (5 couples). Yes, the restaurant is expensive, but you get your money's worth. I should add that we loved our room and the peacefulness of the area where the Inn is located. We live in Virginia, but we hope to return some day.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Very very good food. Very expensive. I used a Groupon, so I'm not sure I would spend the full price on the meal... But highly recommend the Beef Tenderloin and the Three Layered Mousse

“Quiet getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

My boyfriend and I have never stayed at a B&B and this place set the bar high. Great customer service, the rooms were amazing, it was utterly peaceful and everyone was so pleasant despite the additional half hour wait to get into our room. The town was nice and had great food, the inn itself had great food and fresh eggs in the morning from their own chicken coop. Overall, this was a great experience and I would definitely love to come back here again and would highly recommend it.
