Built in 1880, The Inn was at one time a brothel, until it was raided by federal officers. The Inn was a favorite site of cowboys and teamsters, who appreciated the fine foods and jovial atmosphere.
Over 100 years later, the Inn at Tres Pinos is now a San Benito County Historical Landmark, carefully restored by owner, Mike Howard. The ambiance is intimate, rustic, and elegant. It’s country with a touch of class, and decorated in a style that is a reflection of Mike’s personal interest. Mike's grandfather taught him the the art of fly-fishing, and every year the family still fishes together at the Big Wood River in Sun Valley, Idaho. Mike married Mary along the Big Wood River in 2010, and the Inn has become a true family affair. Mike’s philosophy is “Keep it fresh and keep it simple.” His staff is personally hand picked and will make every effort to meet your expectations. The Inn at Tres Pinos is the only four-star restaurant in San Benito Country.

    Besides the food being delicious, it arrived at the table hot. The plate wasn't overly warm, but the food was, which i loved. So it didn't sit under a heat lamp, it was plated and served immediately.

    This is an outstanding restaurant. It is expensive, but definitely worth it. The food is top notch. The ambience outstanding. The service excellent. We went there to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and it was exactly what we wanted.

    The food, as always was amazing… We always love going there. This time for the first time, we were sitting in what they called the guest house. We were told the guesthouse was for overflow seating… Maybe because we had made our reservations just earlier the same day. But the main restaurant was empty when we got there for our 515 reservation. The guesthouse was completely isolated from the restaurant, and for a while there were only two other people in the whole room. The chairs were the most uncomfortable I believe I can ever recall in a restaurant The server was constantly running back-and-forth to the main restaurant for drinks and food which created delays at every step of the way. He was nice about it and he was doing the best he could with what he had to work with. We would rather not be in the guesthouse in the future.

    Our late valentines date was accompanied by great specials as always and even though we stuck to our normal apple crisp desert the fact they had a tiramisu special, I know was to die for, was stellar.

    As always our meal was delicious. This time we enjoyed one of their specials and was not disappointed. Our only disappointment with this visit was that our waiter was not offering us refills on our drinks and the raspberry ice tea was disappointing as you could not taste any raspberry. I felt that I had ordered a regular ice tea. Some friends felt the same.

    I needed to cancel my Valentines reservation. I called two days in advance. There’s no answer in the mailbox is full. I couldn’t leave a message. I called the day of a couple different times phone ring and I was able to leave a message but I never got a call back. I discovered that they charge me $100 for no-show fee. I think that’s kind of unfair since I can get a hold of you guys to do anything about it

    Wonderful food as usual. Service was good but the waitress didn’t inform us that every drink refill of lemonade and ice tea cost $2.50. The drinks were in tall bar glasses that were 75% ice and contained about 6 oz of liquid. When our bill came we were surprised with $25.00 in non-alcoholic drinks. Ridiculous ! Ambiance was nice but it got a little noisy as the the restaurant got fuller. Go early if you want a more romantic setting. Highly recommend the calamari appetizer, veal saltimbocca, filet and desserts.

    When we got seated, the waitress was helping other customers which is fine but no one even brought a glass of water. Whenever we get seated at other restaurants, someone always comes right away with water and makes us feel welcome. We didn't feel welcome at all. Also the no bread rule is not good as we like to enjoy our salads and main entrees with a piece of bread. That also appears cold and non-welcoming.
