River Vine Cafe
The menu by John Ash & Co. restaurant Executive Chef Tom Schmidt showcases seasonal foods and produce from local sources, including the inn’s very own gardens.
The elegantly-rustic café features a circular dining room with expansive windows that open onto beautiful vineyards and gardens; a rock fireplace and wood ceiling beams that bring natural elements to create an inviting, warm, and comfortable ambiance; and custom iron ceiling light fixtures and walls sconces that add notes of elegance and grace. The café provides an array of seating options indoors and out, including quaint, smaller dining areas for intimate duos, as well as a private room for up to 80 guests for meetings or special events.
Jewel of a restaurant tucked next to a world class hotel. I’ve dined here at least a dozen times here since it opened and it never fails to impress.
We were able to eat outside on the patio. It was lovely! We had the Macro Bowl and it was excellent. Great service, friendly staff.
It was a Birthday celebration. The room was pleasant but the other the high ceilings it was a little noisy. The food was good and the presentation was impressive.
Beautiful setting and great service. The Waldorf salad was a bit bland but the fish tacos were outstanding as were the beignets. We will return.
Very nice except that no one was at the door to greet us. We had to go in and find someone to seat us. Otherwise, perfect.
I love to lunch and brunch at the Rivervine! The setting is so serene and lovely for outdoor dining and the staff is excellent. There are both breakfast & lunch options on the menu until 2pm. The lemon ricotta pancakes are fabulous for brunch and there are many lunch options from fish tacos to salads and burgers to soups to vegan options. Their gourmet version of grilled cheese & tomato soup is a favorite. I’ve never had a bad meal here, only meals that make me want to return for more. Plus you can charge your EV while you dine if you have one. Sweet!
Great place to bring dad for special occasions. Food was good service was nice. Good ambiance
We always have a good meal here.
Have eaten here several times!
My husband and I both chose the 'special' for breakfast which was Corned Beef Hash. It was the best we've ever had! The meat was super-tender with just enough fat to enhance flavour and presentation was good. The smashed potatoes are incredible, and together with caramelized onions the dish was a definite hit and was more than enough for us. Bellinis were great, we loved the complimentary scones with butter and jam and the coffee was excellent. i highly recommend this cafe, in a pleasant room with great service and lovely grounds to walk in.
My wife and I were there to celebrate our anniversary. Our experience was excellent. Wait staff were professional, discreet, but attentive. Food was delightful, the place has a nice ambience. Hats off to the landscape maintenance crews as well. A delightful experience.
The best brunch I’ve ever had!!
Everything was outstanding from the service, the view and the breakfast! I had the eggs Benedict, the best I’ve ever had. The potatoes were to die for, freshly squeezed oj.
Will be back again!
As usual, great service and food. General Manager does a super job. We will return.
From the moment Bobby greets you until you have your last taste, you feel like you are at a French bistro that is not rushed, provides great food, and can’t wait to assist you even more. Breakfast is farm fresh with little treats you would not have expected once you placed your order. Try the Salmon and bagel with roasted capers. It’s smokey flavor of trimmed salmon just melts in your mouth! Homemade blueberry jam.... a welcome scone are just some things that start you to ponder your next choice. No disappointments here, but reservations are helpful.
Very clean and efficient space All staff was very accommodating and most important the menu and food was very nice
River Vine Cafe is a beautiful place for breakfast. The food was very good and the service was impeccable. Sitting outside, we had a little issue with bees but it didn't affect our meal. With all the beautiful flowers and landscaping, I don't blame the bees for sticking around! I will definitely be recommending River Vine Cafe to friends and family.
The food is always amazing. Service could be a little slow sometimes but Bobby makes it happen. He is always there to help. The outdoor seating a very pleasant and quiet.
Great place in every way, highly recommended for brunch!
The only reason for a slightly lower ranking in service was the wait. Usually someone is ready to take our order and get our drinks quickly. Our server was delightful and accommodating just not as quick as usual. It certainly didn’t change our overall impression. Still my favorite place for breakfast or lunch.
Excellent restaurant , good ambiance , great menu selections , and great food
We had Easter brunch at River Vine Cafe and it was delicious and the perfect location for a small group. The restaurant was comfortable and decorated beautifully and the grounds outside were gorgeous as well. It was not super lively, but was a nice quiet place for a nice brunch.
I have found my new place to take friends and family. I look forward to trying the restaurant as well.
Food, staff, setting were perfect!
Went for lunch service was slow and when we asked for bread and butter we got two slices of toast no butter. There was also a language barrier where the wait staff had a marginal grasp of English. I expect way more from vintners inn. Not going back ever!
This is a hidden gem that just happens to be less than 10 minutes from our home. Lucky us! The food is delicious, fresh, perfectly prepared and presented. The wait staff has always been just right. Not too present and always there when you needed something. The answer is always, "of course".
A great place to have brunch with friends. Bobby always ensures excellent service.
We ate outside and it was lovely. Food was excellent and ambiance was perfect!
Food, Service and Value are much better than the average restaurant in the county. Pleasant grounds to walk before or after a meal
The best avocado toast ever!
Staff was great!!! And so was the food!
Our son proposed to his soon-to-be bride at Vintners Inn 2 years ago; they then spent their wedding night at Vintners Inn a year ago and yesterday we brought them and their new baby daughter to enjoy Sunday brunch at the new River Vine Cafe. It was perfect!
Nice place to eat. Beautiful dining rooms, great service. Menu could stand alittle shake up but still very good overall.
This was our third visit, and we consider it a very special occasion place.
Loved our meal! Beautiful gardens, great coffee! Service was very nice
Two of us had fish tacos and they were very wet and disappointing. The other had a Caesar salad and , also, disappointing. Very little dressing and the croutons so small and they looked and tasted like boxed. presentation poor
This place was amazing!!!
Location is easy. I ordered a Cobb salad with no additions and a balsamic dressing in the side. The salad was so dull with only lettuce bacon and avocado. My side of balsamic was not... only oil and red wine vinegar. No cheese. Should have ordered the additional chicken. However everything was fresh which was a plus! There were other menu choices I could have made
Best breakfast and service in Santa Rosa. It’s also a perfect time to walk around the property and see the tulips afterward.
A customer started using his Phone for a LONG business call in a very loud voice disturbing other diners. Management did not do anything about this discourteousness to other guests.
Outstanding eggs Benedict with wonderful Meyer lemon hollandaise. Yummy scones too 👍
Brunch was good. Loved the Bloody Mary with bacon! Crab cakes were really good. Lots of crab with little breading and no grease.
