Description: Original, organic and orgasmic have been used to describe this local's wine country hidden gem. You have to experience what they offer. Open every day except Tuesdays service from 11:30 a.m. straight through until 9 p.m. Very authentic flavors of Spain considering the Chef/owner is Spanish Basque. You should really attend his Chef's Basque dinner on the second Thursday of every month! Family style the way the Basque restaurants of San Francisco of yesteryear used to serve. 7 courses brought to the table in tureens & platters for all to share. Much from the Chef's organic gardens nearby. Treasures from local farmers, ranchers & fisherpeople. Chef Esteban prepares & presents each course. $45 per person including Chef's homemade wines crafted from his certified organic grapes! Limited seating so reservations are a must!

Could not have been more surprised by this attentive little restaurant. Organic grown & used produce. Basque dishes were amazing. Grilled artichokes, kale with lamb, all cheeses with dishes were house made. Crispy chicken rolls.
Quality & thought out dishes, house wine was also better than some known named winemakers on the list. Very good local chef, do not pass on this spot.

We stopped for lunch on Sept. 12, 2012. What a surprise! The menu choices where largeas was the portions. It was very relaxing sitting on the grape vine covered patio and the four of us each got something different. All the food was outstanding. Something unusual was the sardine salad, great, great. The corn soup was very good too. The tuna tacos where so yummy. Make a pont to stop and enjoy.

This could be a great spot if they changed their menu!
The only thing that is really good here is the barbequed artichoke!

Vineyards Inn has a lively bar scene, offering both beer and wine on tap. We arrived without a reservation and were greeted and seated immediately. We ordered two dishes from the extensive tapas menu—a Bento Box of assorted tapas and a Basque Crispy Liver Salad—and one entrée to share—a seafood stew. The entrée came with a large dinner salad of well-dressed romaine garnished with beans and slivered carrots. Everything was delicious. We’ll be back to sample other dishes.

Very interesting twist on traditional Spanish tapas dishes. The restaurant is touted as the 'greenest' in the San Fran area and I wouldn't be surprised. They have their own organic garden and source all their meat from local organic ranchers. Great value and wonderful atmosphere under the vines!
