If you're on the Mendocino coast and you want a fine dining experience, Albion River Inn's restaurant is serving up gracious service and delicious food in a lovely, covid-safe outdoor space under a great big romantic tent. We each enjoyed a fantastic salad starter followed by a delicious fish entree for him and steak entree for me. The wine and beer service was top notch and the dessert (a rich mouse in a cocktail glass with a candle) was on the house when they heard we were celebrating our 5-year wedding anniversary. And a hearty "Thank You" to the hostess for allowing us to bring our two pups to dinner, who rested quietly at our feet all evening. The evening could not have been more perfect.
Beautiful views, attentive and friendly staff, excellent food. By far one of the better dining experiences I have had in a while. Look forward to coming back!
Great food. Wonderful view to ocean outside under tent. Attentive service.
Great food and location. service was friendly. would definitely eat ther again to try some additional items. The asparagus appetizer was amazing, couldve eaten two !
The filet mignon was perfectly cooked.
The Albion River never disappoints. My husband I have celebrated many Anniversaries here. This was our 40th. The new outdoor seating, food, service, atmosphere and everything about it was excellent.
Beautiful outdoor setting, friendly, helpful server, and delicious food.
Highly recommend for a nice dinner.
This was a breathtaking and gorgeous birthday dinner outside on the cliff with the most stunning sunset view ive ever seen. Wow. All was perfect!
Wonderful place to enjoy a delicious meal with a view
Delicious food, great service. Fog was in so we missed the beautiful viee.
Wonderful is my best description!
This was my girlfriend's birthday and it was a memorable culinary experience... The meal was excellent, the service was great.. The setting? Unbelievable! Right on the ocean just below Mendocino.. Don't miss it!
Outdoor dining at it's finest! Space heaters nearby, and they even brought lap blankets to keep us warm. I had the Rock Cod, which was cooked to perfection, and accompanied by delicious vegetables and warm, melt in your mouth, bread. The wait staff were all friendly and helpful, from the time we arrived at the door until we left our table for the evening. We felt well taken care of and valued as guests. Get there before dark so you can enjoy the breathtaking view of "where the Albion meets the sea." This was my birthday dinner, and we could not have chosen a finer spot. Thank you, Albion River Inn!
Everything outside overlooking the ocean. Tables far apart. All waitstaff wearing face coverings. Delicious cocktails asparagus appetizer with prosciutto was delicious. Grilled shrimp entree was good. Flavorful coffee. Felt safe and great outdoor ambiance with flame lamps. Hope they can find a way to make this work into the rainy and winter season.
Loved Dining outside on the ocean with amazing views.
We had an awesome outdoor dining experience for our 40th anniversary. Everything was perfect - the food, the people, the view!
Amazing sunset dinner by the fire pit with my daughter! Thank you so much!!
Filet minion: fantastic! Perfectly prepared w an incredible demi glaze. Chicken Dijonaise: chicken was moist but sauce was overly salted. Vegetables were overcooked and quite mushy. Outdoor seating w great view of cove was the best thing about this evening. Servers and hostess could be heard gossiping about other patrons. Won't go back.
Amazing food! The filet of beef was outstanding and my wife’s fish dish was excellent as well. Will be back
The food is spectacular....every time! I highly recommend it!
Had a wonderful COVID-19 safe outdoor meal! The prawns were delicious and don’t miss the desserts!
It was marvelous! The night was beautiful with a chill but the heaters were great!
Loved the outdoor seating , beautiful views, great food, excellent service.
Right in the middle of Covid , they did a fantastic job to give us a wonderful meal and experience 👍👍
We have been coming here for years and were her to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The are taking all the necessary Covid-19 precautions and tables are outdoors where they usually hold weddings. It was an absolutely spectacular sunset.
We started our meal with the squash ginger soup and the asparagus/proscuitto/parmesan appetizer. They always have amazing soup and this was no exception. For entrees we had the cod special and the prawns in a lime cream sauce that was so delicious you wanted a bowlful to eat like soup. We paired our meal with a Hawley Viognier (many local wines on their extensive wine list). We finished our meal with a candied ginger ice cream and a pair of sorbets.
Our server Matt and his helpers were gracious and helpful. They made this occasion delightful.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner outdoors on our visit to the Mendocino area. Service was attentive and gracious and the meal was wonderful. Thank you to all of the talented team at the Albion River Inn.
Beautiful meal again! When our reservation at another place fell through (they changed their hours but did not cancel our reservation) Albion River Inn came through again. Laura and the staff were sweet and attentive. Meal was delicious. Thank you!
Highly recommended. Great food and what a view. Their rice and prawns out of this world👍👍
Outdoor dining on the bluff by the fire pit was such a glorious break from the smoke in the bay area...service and food were terrific. We had the tomato towery, caesar salad and split the steak w prawns everything was perfect. Full bar and great cocktails but also a stellar wine list. I'd def come back
38 wedding anniversary
Always wonderful! Great food, good service, fabulous atmosphere
We visited the Albion River Restaurant to celebrate our one year anniversary. We sat outside, overlooking the ocean. The food was outstanding, the service was excellent, and it's a great place to go for a special occasion.
Beautiful socially distanced outdoor dining with a fabulous view and wonderful service. A must when in the Mendocino area! We came back for the oceanfront view and the prawns and they did not disappoint!
View was so beautiful. Wait staff great felt very safe and protected from covid. My food was terrific but my husband do not enjoy his steak. Felt it was tough. I loved all mine and he enjoyed his appetizer. He tried my main course and liked it. We will definitely eat here again. So enjoyed ourselves. Had many other menu items we will try. Probably just not steak again.
Albion is the best restaurant
Our soup was outstanding
The prawns were so fresh and delicious
Then our desert was so great
Also the service was so attentive
Always our favorite place to eat and stay!!!
I’ve eaten at the Albion River Inn many times over the past decade. It’s always great. We ate outside in the fog with heaters and it was still wonderful. Service is excellent, food generous and impeccable.
Everything was great
The restaurant offered a lovely setting, great service and good food. We are glad they took reservations because it was busy. They handled social distancing well
Great environment and service. Outside dining is the way to at Albion River Restaurant!
Eating out in the time of COVID has it's challenges but the staff really did their best. View is unbeatable. Food is delicious. Social distancing in place.
The ambience and service was excellent. The staff were friendly and the view of the ocean/cliff was spectacular. The Latin inspired soup was so tasty! The main food was good but could have been better. The cod was chewy and the steak was not as flavorful as we had hoped for. The food was still good just not as excellent as the ambience.
