The Duck Club Restaurant at the Bodega Bay Lodge
Cool Down from Wine CountryAfter several days in Napa, wife and I were looking to slow things down before heading home. The Duck Club capped a great trip. We had an amazing view. The service was friendly yet refined. We started with a cheese plate with local artisan cheeses and some champagne. The Cow Girl cheeses were so good, we may head to their creamery on the wat to SFO. Beet salad was pretty and tasted great. For entres, we had the halibut and salmon. I particularly like the salmon that was served on some broth with some fresh vegetables. The food, service, and view combined made this the best meal of our trip.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMUnwinding After NapaHad great food with a great view. The dining room is small and quiet, just right for a relaxing yet elegant dinner. The entire staff was friendly and polished. We really enjoyed the salmon and halibut dishes as well as the cheese course with local artisan cheeses.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbWe had a one night mini- vacation at the Bodega Bay Lodge and had dinner and breakfast at the Duck Club Restaurant there. The food was outstanding ( we had halibut and salmon with the cheese plate for dessert), service excellent and the view was incredible.
Anyone who has the chance should definitely go-- make a reservation-- it was crowded even on a Tuesday.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAsk for a Window seat.This restaurant is a "special" occasion dinning experience. It is pricey, $100.00 or more for two, but always very good food, wine, and service.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Every Minute!My wife and I were here on a Sat evening for a 7pm reservation. We were sat promptly by a very friendly host. She let us choose which table we would like. Soon after we had water at our table and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks. Best margarita I have ever had and it went very well with my pork which was amazing! My wife had the duck and it was perfect! Skin was crispy and the meat cooked perfectly through but still pink.
We will go back; that is a guarantee!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDuck ClubThis was my first time to The Duck Club and it was because a recommendation was given to me. As a guest of the lodge the restaurant is extremely convenient. The food and view are excellent. A fire pit sits outside at one end of the restaurant and an outdoor sitting area at the other.
if there is any area where The Duck Club might improve it is i n the lounge. The bar is well run and the drinks made good, but the bar itself is a convention bar usually used in a meeting room. Wile the lounge seating was fine, I am one that likes to sit at the bar and talk with other guests and the bar tender. That was't possible at the The Duck Club.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMsimply sublimeMy wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Duck Club. The ambiance of the place made us feel like we were members of a private club. The staff was extremely friendly. My duck breast entree was simply sublime.

We would go back.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. It wasFood was excellent. It was upscale, but not too fancy. I often fear with upscale restaurants that the menu will have off-the-wall choices and the portions will be tiny. The menu had great options (duck, scallops, gnocchi) and the portions were generous. It is a bit pricey, so I would only dine here for special occasions or a splurge.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff is very friendly.The staff is very friendly. The food was Excellent.
