Online reservations at Glen Ellen Inn Oyster Grill & Martini Bar can only be made directly on their website.
First night in wine country-- I had reserved our table and we drove from Sonoma-- worth the drive!
We had a good dinner on a busy Friday night. Our table was tight and in a very small space, lots of action going by. Food was good and wine selections great
This place was terribly under staffed. They could not accommodate the patrons they had and to make matters worse, they kept accepting more. Poor management and no one was apologetic for the poor service.
I wish they would broaden their menu. We have had many a delightful meal at the restaurant and usually rely on their specials, which were particularly weak on Monday of this week. We had friends from out of town and had spoken highly of the restaurant but we are felt the meal was poor. Get more creative - the chef must be able to develop a better menu. If not, get a new chef.
Great martinis, great oysters, wonderful cioppino, terrific french fries, and awesome desserts. The oysters rockefeller were too dry with too many breadcrumbs. The muscles with french fries needed to be separate. The french fries became too soggy. Otherwise, it was great!
The Glen Ellen Inn is a gem. It's owned by lovely people who really care about what they put on the table. This is not your trendy, "have you been" restaurant. Don't be fooled by the laminated menu. The food is consistently delicious, with great service, and a charming setting. I consider myself a discriminating restaurant goer who always thinks trendy restaurants have a short lifespan. The Glen Ellen Inn is a keeper.
Throughly enjoyed our meal there. The service was excellent until they started getting busy. My son in law ordered coffee with his dessert and it came at least 5-10 minutes after he finished it. Fortunately, he is very easy going so it didn"t seem to bother him. Over all it is a great little restaurant. Best of all it was close by where we were staying.
Excellent wait staff and delicious meals.
Killer martinis with fresh oysters!!
Excellent meal and friendly service. Nice wine list reasonably priced. Would definitely return if we visit Sonoma Valley again. Cottages in the rear were a find. Great value and fun for our small group (4).
Food was delicious -- love the small inner dining room -- like eating in a tree house looking out over the garden -- interesting menu -- beautiful food presentation -- meyer lemon dessert to die for -- good wine list, by the glass or by the bottle --
Our service person, Dominic, was either over committed, or maybe new, or??? He was noticeably absent and had to repeatedly be found by us, or by the other waiter on duty. Maybe it was an unusually busy Saturday -- don't know -- he did seem to be outside more than inside -- maybe the restaurant was short-staffed on that particular day? Again, don't know. Will we be back again? Absolutely, but don't want Dominic as our waiter.
