For a casual small-town place this really can't be beat. We enjoyed listening to the band. Our dinners were good, the service was thoughtful, the dining room is nice looking and comfortable, all good. We were a little bit disappointed (but just a little bit) that there wasn't a dance floor, but let's not ask for the moon.

This place was a total rip off. I do not know who the cooks are. definitely not chef! The prime rib should have been called shoulder chop, as it was alot tougher than leather hide. The waitress could have cared less. The pizza was the worse ever. The appetizers were not worth what they charged. The vegetarian lasagna was the worse you could offer. I would not recommend this place and the prices were out of control for the lousy food we had ordered. I could rate this far far below Mc Donald's. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

We came here for my partner's birthday dinner, and it was everything a classic Guerneville bistro should be: friendly, welcoming, great quality yet with a sweet hometown vibe.

First time at Main Street Station Bistro. Food was very good. There was a big dinner crowd, presumably due to the Valentine's Day dinner special, so it took a while for the drinks and appetizer to be served. We still had a lovely meal with live music in the background and the restaurant was attractively decorated for the occasion.

Food was great, with good sized portions. I recommend the meatball appetizers. The real treat was the live music however. The 3 piece band played some awesome jazz, making the event much more than a meal. Excellent!!

The music was not as advertised, the food was bland and overpriced.

Most places in Sonoma County ate closed or super expensive for New Years Eve. Main Street Saloon is affordable, great music, great food and celebrates the New Year at each time zone! Very fun !

We had a large group that kept growing. Your servers took it in stride and kindly accommodated all of us, made us all feel welcomed. The pizzas were large enough to feed all of us and they were delicious as well. I'd recommend your restaurant to anyone! Thank you again for putting up with us ;)! It was wonderful!
Thank you,

Had amazing service, front row table next to the 3 piece band which was soothing and beautiful. Great ambiance. Good people.

Me and my boyfriend came here for my birthday a few nights ago. A great atmosphere with a very talented singer and pianist performing for ambience. It was a little loud but then again, we were seated right next to them so that's probably why. Heh. The food was great, healthy portions, hearty Italian-American type stuff. We loved it and brought some home for leftovers. I highly recommend Main Street to anyone looking for a classy dinner place. I also highly recommend the Meatball+Garlic bread appetizer!

Yelp comments did not do justice to this restaurant. We enjoyed the meals (went there for a pre-party lunch and then the next day the party lunch - pre-party lunch was somewhat better than then party lunch - we ordered the same two dishes: beet salad and mushroom sandwich). Others commented overall good food but hard to gauge since we invited them to our party of 17 people eating there. Service was very good but somewhat slow, on both days - we certainly overwhelmed the place on our party day, but was wondering why it was slow for a 3 PM lunch. Maybe we ordered the two dishes that had missing ingredients at that time of the day? ¿quién sabe?! ;-)
