Charm, River View, & Nice Waitress
Really enjoyed our dinner. The little vacation town is old-fashioned & charming, the restaurant is the set for Bing Crosby's Holiday Inn & is cute, the outdoor deck overlooks the river & is really nice before the sun sets, & our waitress was so nice, as were the other people sitting outside. Looks like a quiet nice place to stay the night, too.

First time back to Village Inn in nearly 40 years and what a change!. From cheap vegetarian to high quality all around choices. The four of us had different entrees and all were excellent. Service top notch.

Monte Rio Favorite
We often stop to see Mark and company because they make their guests feel welcome, comfortable, and very satisfied. The Village Inn is a lovely spot with great food and excellent service, all overlooking the Russian River. A true gem in Monte Rio, CA.

This place is always a special spot for us. The bar is very small and European like. Mark, the owner, is always cordial and he makes great drinks! The view is lovely, the people are fun, what's not to like?

The food was great and plentiful, but the best part was the staff and the feeling that this really was a part of the area, people knew each other, and it was really friendly. I'd highly recommend.

A Memorable Evening In Time
This is the best of quaint unpretentious West County dining. It is also a cozy and historic hotel for an occasional reconnecting. We stayed over on our anniversary last year, and returned for dinner on our 11th last week. The service is caring and professional. They accomodated our special requests for gluten free etc. with not a hint of agitation. The portions were extremely generous and the wine excellent as well.
The dining rooms are adorned with a very real collection of art..during the day the quiet river setting is lovely at any time of year.
Do not overlook The Village Inn. Real greatness usually is accompanied by understated humility. And you don't have to travel to France. They are right here!

Village Inn and restaurant is a hidden gem. You must and I mean must go and stay. The grounds are immaculate. Upscale outdoor furniture and an awesome view from where ever you sit. Cathy is the innkeeper and she goes out of her way to make you feel at home. We are going back and bringing friends. Great food and drinks.

A totally unique dininig experience
The restaurant and guest rooms are top notch. The Village Inn was built in 1905, and was the set for the movie Holiday Inn, staring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. The song, White Christmas, was introduced in that movie.
It's always a treat to walk on to the property that includes meticulously maintained gardens that overlook the Russian River. Head for the restaurant for the very best in atmosphere and dining. The food is to die for, the service is great, and the wine list is extensive.
My best advice is that you try it for yourselves. You won't regret it. It's a totally unuique experience, and is very affordable. This is one to write home about!
