This is really two facilities, the Garden Room which is open for lunch (and maybe dinner) and the Victorian Dining Room which is open for dinner. Both are excellent. The lunch menu is very complete and varied and in our many visits has provided us with excellent food. The dinner menu in the Victorian Dining Room is a bit shorter but, on our most recent visit in July 2013, featured a very fine preparation of wild salmon and absolutely the most attentive and knowledgeable service in a very impressive but comfortable atmosphere.

We had a good lunch at the Mendocino Hotel while spending a day in Mendocino. We had a bit of a wait, but that gave us time to explore the very interesting Victorian hotel. The food and service were quite good.

We ate dinner here twice during our stay in Mendocino. We had reservations for the dining room, but decided we preferred to eat at a window table in the bar area that afforded a stunning view of the ocean and cliffs, lovely. A short wait with a glass of wine proved pleasant. We loved the bouillabaisse and the fresh fish specials, which were swordfish and wild salmon. The warm spinach and bacon salad was delightful, and the crab bisque was delicious. We were treated in an attentive and friendly way by the staff. We highly recommend it.

We stumbled on this restaurant the first time we visited Mendocino and wanted to make sure to eat here again when we came back. It didn't dissapoint! The clam chowder was very creamy, the crab cakes were amazing and the fish and chips were perfectly fried and fish so fresh! So glad we returned! We ate here at lunch both times so not sure how dinner compares!

We went there our first night in Mendocino and had a lovely dinner. Service was great, our dietary concerns were handled well, and our meals were delicious. There are many nice places to eat in the Mendocino area, but we chose to go back there for our last dinner. We were not disappointed__another great dinner, well served. Try it, you'll like it.
