“Walter Cafe has fabulous steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

My husband and I wanted red meat on this trip to Ukiah (Memorial Day weekend). The hotel recommended Walter Cafe, saying don't be afraid of the decor, everyone comes back raving. When we got to the room I checked the reviews and I was lukewarm about going. We decided to take the recommendation anyway. We're so glad we did. The decor was more oriental but the American meal was superb. I had filet mignon with potatoes au gratin and fresh vegetables. You could actually taste the vegetables...no garlic overpowering them. The filet was a perfect medium and the potatoes were amazing...my mouth is watering thinking about this meal. My husband had the prime rib with the same sides. He was very happy with his meal too. Walter Cafe is on our must visit list next time we're in Ukiah (once/month). We don't drink and our bill was $42.

“Unique restaurant that serves American and Japanese food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

If you can't decide whether you want steak or sushi for dinner. Then Walter is a must visit as they serve both American and Japanese cuisine. We had their 12 oz rib eye steak, sushi followed by their homemade tarimisu. The steak was very tender and juicy. I did not think Ukiah would have fresh sushi. But the salmon and yellow tail was actually quite good. The quality can rival some of the better sushi restaurants I have eaten at in the Bay Area. Total cost for us was about $65 for two. Service was friendly and attentive.
