Diner Reviews
  • "Unfortunately, the Crab Louie main dish did not work. It consisted of a large pile of chopped lettuce surrounded by tasteless vegetables, canned bay shrimp, canned crab, and sardines. The French-type dressing hidden deep in the lettuce did not add anything to the flavor of the dish. I have to be honest and say it was the most unpleasant meal I've ever experienced in a restaurant. It was pretty---but very disappointing. "

  • "Before the recent visit I regarded this restaurant as little more than an upscale pub. Now its upscale in the best sense of the word. We had one dinner and two breakfasts. You could put this restaurant in any large city and it would do well. The view is hard to find anywhere else. For some, it might seem a little pricey but it easily passes my bang over buck test."

  • "Good food in a casual yet defined setting. Sweeping views of the Pacific from from every table."

  • "Our first visit after a new chef was on March 22, 2014. The beef medallions and swordfish special were fabulous. Best meal we have ever had at the Lodge in 30 years!"

  • "Sea Ranch is a beautiful seaside community...isolated to say the least. It is rare to find both great food and great service in such off the beaten path locations. Seve and Trisha were outstanding wait persons...and Maria...the chef for the night... prepared incredible Petrole Sole and a pasta special that was a Home Run. Excellent! We always look forward to visiting this restaurant...a treat along Hwy 1 along the Sonoma County coast."

  • "The food was really good. Initially, you have to ask for water as California is in a drought. However, be mindful that the wine list available by glass is only on the paper menu. I was VERY disappointed after spending a good amount of time reviewing the wine list along with potential entrees. The wine list provided shows the wines as by the bottle or by the glass - but don't be fooled, you can't order wine by the glass from their booklet. At that our waiter mentioned he had been there for 7 years - so I was even more disappointed that a a nice place like this they failed to appropriately advertise their wine menu. The food was outstanding and the breakfast burritos were awesome as well, but the service was not up to par."

  • "worst service I've ever had drinks didnt arrive until 30 minutes later with dinner bread without butter everybody else's table had butter balsamic vinegar and oil we were left with just the oil had to ask multiple times for a refill of water even though the food was delicious the experience was totally ruined due to a young waitress who expected a young couple that wasn't dressed up to be bad tippers. Also I received the request to fill out the survey at 1:30 a.m. In the morning perhaps next time you want a review you could not have some buddies email wake them up in the middle of the night"

  • "The setting and feel to this restaurant is like no other. Great menu and wonderful food. The wait staff took quite a while to approach us after being seated and although very friendly could be more knowledgable about their menu items. The view is like no other and I will definitely return to this beautiful lodge by the sea."

  • "Given that this is the only restaurant around for many miles, there should definitely be more vegetarian options available on the dinner menu (most customers are from the SF Bay Area), we shouldn't be given the "the chef is sooo picky and he won't make ANY changes to the menu including removing meat (bacon) from a dish" or "there's ONE salad that comes without meat", the wine list should be longer, the waitress shouldn't read the steak and fish specials to us after we have told her that we are vegetarians, she also should be able to explain what a flat iron steak is to the customer who asks about it at another table, hopefully it'll get there in time, the prices sure are high for the level of service and food that this restaurant is at now."

  • "We enjoyed our celebratory meal at Black Point Lodge. Our party included a 6 year old, very content with her penne pasta. Our server was attentive. The short ribs and .scallops were good, and the polenta croutons were a huge hit ."

  • "What a great place to eat great food, drink fantastic local wines and watch the skies for the appearance of celestial bodies, and even the space station! And the waitress knew Venus and Spica on top of that! Lovely."

  • "We dined here on October 9th, having made a reservation well in advance. The place was swamped with walk-ins, so we were told to wait in the bar (and didn't even get a drink) at the time of our reservation. The wine we ordered took a while to be found, then to be chilled! The food was uninspired and below average. We both had Point Reyes oysters which arrived luke warm (should have been ice cold) and the next day we both felt a bit bloated. I suspect the oysters were on the verge of spoiling. The beef tenderloin main dish was ok but nothing special. The view was fine but hard to enjoy, since we thought there was a herd of elephants in the room as one (of the two) servers stormed around in what sounded like heavy work boots all evening."
