The very best food and service on or ear the Russian River. The menu showed creativity and was well eSecured. Presentation and preparation were flawless. Out server, Andrew, was very professional and well informed. His suggestions were helpful as well as accurate. The dining room was quiet and conversation was possible unlike so many other restaurants in the area. Prices are high but not out of line with the quality of the food and the ambiance. The A La Carte menu allows one to have a good experience and manage the bill. I have had lunch and dinner and I will go back.

It took 25 minutes after we were seated to get just water let alone order. The hostess was completely clueless. We booked the reservation the same day. If they couldn’t accommodate our reservation then they should have said there was no availability. We all ordered red meat and requested medium rare and it came out less than rare. At this price point, we were very disappointed.

We will not return as there are many more places to try in the area.

This was a lovely restaurant with excellent food. The price point for mains was quite high for the area - $35 to $40 - but the portion sizes are very large so if you enjoy leftovers or have a huge appetite I would not consider this a drawback. Appetizers were excellent as well.

Service was professional and charming and the interior warm and inviting. We ate there on a very slow night so I cannot say if it is noisy when full.

Outdoor deck in the trees is a beautiful setting for dinner. Come early enough to enjoy the early evening sun before it sets over the ridge. Fresh organic food from their own garden and seafood is delicious. Own smoked chicken came with glorious burnished mahogony skin, tender meat and delicate smoked flavor, served with outstanding corn pudding.

Servers were professional but main course took almost an hour to arrive; kitchen must have been distracted by big wedding onsite. Surprisingly few wines by the glass available for wine county.

Dog friendly and welcoming. Drinks and small plates on the deck before sunset would be awesome.

Steak should have been medium to medium rare. It was slightly over cooked.

Very disappointed to see the pub menu was very limited. Unless the full menu is available I will go somewhere else. One of my favorite places otherwise

Everything took far too long to be prepared and served and, despite very good food, the prices don't support what you get. I think this place could knock it out of the park on all fronts but I always come away thinking they must not really want to.

We are new to the Russian River Valley and didn't know what to expect.
It was a very pleasant surprise.

I picked this restaurant based on reviews and the mention of a nice outdoor dining experience. The occasion: Mother's Day Brunch. We had a reservation outside on the deck overlooking the pool and cute little hotel room/houses, the space and scenery was very nice! I really want to give a higher overall rating, because the food was awesome and the service was great... however on this morning there was something up in the kitchen that had everyone waiting. They were giving free food and drinks to just about everyone because of the delay. That being said it was still a success for us since we weren't in a hurry. The cocktails were great, mimosa on point... their "Perfect Manhattan" was pretty close to perfect for me. I had a breakfast skillet or something like that & my GF had muscles... All the food was was delicious! Hopefully they get the kitchen turn around time sorted... we'll be back again to give them another shot as soon as we can!

We had another excellent dining experience when my husband took me and his mother here for Mother's Day Brunch. The lemon ricotta pancakes were divine--as was the crab eggs Benedict. The service was fantastic as usual, and Michael, the owner, was on hand to add his personal touch. And to top it all off, we were treated to a live jazz combo! I highly recommend this wonderful dining resource in Guerneville!
