Food was delicious and the view was outstanding! We came to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful, relaxing dinner.
My boyfriend and I spent our anniversary at the restaurant and it was incredible! The view was beautiful, every person on staff was so kind. On top of the amazing service and atmosphere the food was delicious to match.
Beautiful view, great service, food & beverages. We enjoyed this dinner as a family.
Great food, beautiful setting!
Great food, great views, great value and they’re open on Mondays.
Just the best view in Albion and Mendo! Too it off with excellent menu and food presentation: fit for foodies m romantic dates. We loved our corner view table and experience, thank you staff n chefs
We celebrated our 33 rd Anniversary and they put red rose petals on our table. What a nice touch.
We had dinner here about 20 years ago on our anniversary, and by chance we were in Fort Bragg for our 44th. This place is just as good as my memory said it would be! Red rose petals scattered on our table were a nice touch, and the food was outstanding. Hopefully, we’ll be back sooner next time!
This is the best of everything. The best mac and cheese I’ve ever had. The best caprese salad I’ve ever had and scampi described as cocaine-addictive. Service was attentive. The room was softly lighted. Perfection. Can’t wait to return.
Ambiance was superb with a world-class view of the spectacular Pacific! The landscaping just outside our window was gorgeous, with hummingbirds on the flowers. Our service was excellent, all the employees were very attentive. The salad was delicious. The seafood chowder was good but not outstanding.
First time back for many years and just as pleased as the past. We had the Baja Swordfish special and it was wonderful!! Window viewing for an incredible sunset on our anniversary. Wine selection is excellent as are the mixed drinks. If you get the chance to dine here it is a special place! The gardens are magnificent and we saw several hummingbirds while eating. We will be back for sure!
Good service, nice view, friendly place. There aren’t a lot of good options in the area but Albion’s was very good.
Fabulous service, food and beautiful sunset!
An amazing view of the ocean and cliffs out of the window and tasty food. Just be mindful that on sunny afternoons it gets extremely hot when sitting right at the window (no A/C), so you might want to get a table away from the sun to enjoy the ambiance of this family ran restaurant.
Came here with my French family to celebrate the end of our road trip, the view is amazing, the location is great. We had a nice time, the staff was friendly and professional. The food was great, it was shellfish for me and coconut ginger shrimp for my family. Delicious! It’s a great place for date or romantic dinner, nice treat for a family too. I’ll definitely go back when I’ll be around.
Have already recommended to co-workers - Very happy with the service, our meal outstanding for a birthday celebration, just perfect according to the birthday boy!
We had a wonderful experience. Food was wonderful. Service was outstanding. Views were beautiful. Hope to go back again soon.
We love this place. We live in the Bay Area and are used to good food and this is as good as any of it PLUS you will have outstanding service and a phenomenal view. This time we saw a whale!
We have come here every year now for many years, at least once, when we venture up the coast for a few days off.
Every time it has been a delight for our taste buds.
This time we had seared tuna over a warm salad of wild mushrooms and Napa cabbage and honestly, it was as good as food gets.
The restaurant is low keyed ... calm, elegant, but in that California kind of way where you can dress or wear jeans and no one seems to notice. We love that.
Last time there was a local man singing opera and he was good!
Always a treat; always some pleasant surprise.
Don't miss it.
The view, food and service are exceptional. Best restaurant on coast.
Our first time and we were delighted with an outstanding dinner in a wonderful setting.
Only wish we lived closer and could enjoy it often!
We we’re there for two .birthdays. The setting is beautiful. With the open dining room it was fairly noisy. The seafood chowder was wonderful. The entres were very good, although the bouillabaisse was quite bland for my taste. Our server was excellent; as our reservations were for 8 p.m., the rest of the staff were obviously ready for us to leave. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience.
Several people working the table - kind of confusing. Tended to reach across you rather than come from the side.
Salads and bread are excellent.
Would have liked a draft beer but you have none.
We went early on a Thursday evening and had a marvelous meal and dining experience. We got a table overlooking the ocean and everything we ate was wonderful. My husband had the macaroni and cheese and it was luscious. My rock cod was excellent on a tasty brown rice. My partner had the pork shank with polenta. the sauce was divine. The Meyer lemon, orange cheese cake was light and tasty. Lovely meal. We will come back.
We had been to Albion River restaurant in the past, our anniversary dinner was not the romantic dinner as before. The piano bar turned in a karaoke night. Disturbing! To say the least! Will not be going back anytime soon.
Always good! Our favorite restaurant in the Mendocino area. Delicious salmon this time. We come here every time we are up this way.
A lovely place with a terrific view - not every part of Mendocino has this. The food is well curated and thoughtful, though I'd love more small plates. Fresh fish every day and only the best ingredients. Definitely try the mixed seafood with cream and brandy - really great. Good wine list and a decent number of wines by the glass.
Best dinner!! I had braised pork on polenta, hubby had pork tenderloin special. They were both absolutely wonderful.
A nice touch was added to our table with rose petals, as it was our Anniversary. Also was given a table in the corner with a beautiful view of the ocean, hills and Albion River bridge.
After dinner We were so full we couldn’t eat dessert, but we did take it back to our room. It was a wonderful chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream . It was packaged up very nicely . We will be back .
Joe and Sharon
Wonderful view of ocean; servers, bartender and hostess all very accommodating.
Food and wine selections outstanding.
The food, service and ambiance were phenomenal. Nothing better than watching the sunset with dinner.
Ambiance was casual but the service was gracious and attentive without getting in the way of the gorgeous views and serene location. Food was good, too!
We truly appreciated the extra touches they gave us for our 40th anniversary celebration.
We're from Colorado, visiting the Mendocino coast and so glad we chose the Albion River Restaurant for dinner.
The appetizers were delicious. But the entrees were expensive and boring. My husband returned the pasta dish because it had no flavor. My fish dish was fine, but the fish could have been cooked better. This was an expensive restaurant for a sub par meal. Beautiful view, lackluster food.
Beautiful setting - wonderful views - comfortable space. Food was good - view was way better
Our party of five had a lovely dinner at Albion Inn- the salads were all enormous and the entrees were as expected- tasty ands served perfectly. One of our companions asked for the burger to be served sans bun, but the bun accompanied her plate. The staff refills water and asks if you need anything during the course of the meal, very unobtrusively. Corkage is $20, but $15 at most other area restaurants. Not a big deal, but something you might want to note. The views are lovely, food delicious and we will definitely go again.
Perfect from beginning to end. The views are spectacular, our waitress was awesome, and the food outstanding. Just a wonderful night and dining experience.
Given the food is delicious and ocean views beautiful didn’t mind dinner was over $200 for a party of 4 adults
My wife and I came here for our first anniversary, and we had a great experience! The food and service were both excellent.
Fun night out with fabulous food. We’re going to be back again
Located where the Albion River meets the Pacific Ocean, the view is amazing! Ask for a window table where you can take in the gorgeous scenery & watch the Hummingbirds flit among the flowers. Nice menu with some added specials & a nice wine list. Service was warm & attentive. Yes, we’d go back.
