    The mimosas were perfect - good ratio of bubbly to oj - and the food was delicious. We had eggs benedict and the lemon ricotta pancakes to share and they were scrumptious. I highly recommend those! The service was good and friendly but a tad slow at the beginning when we were hoping to order drinks. Other than that, it was a wonderful dining experience with lovely ambiance and friendly staff. I will be back for sure!

    We LOVE Vintners Resort and got married there 5 years ago. We went to have lunch and celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance is absolutely gorgeous and when the staff is interacting with you they are professional and kind. It took awhile to be seated and they didn’t care that we had a reservation. I told the guy and he ignored me and took us to a table inside, which I had told him we wanted to be outside. I also had notes in my reservation, as I was trying to have surprises for my hubby; But that all got missed when he ignored me. The menu isn’t very big for lunch, so I had 3 things to choose from. All pretty fun of the mill food you can get anywhere. I was not impressed with the selection but it tasted good. I’ll always recommend Vintners Resort because of the sentimental value and ambiance.

    Not sure why we weren’t offered a table outside, which if given the choice I’d take it. Didn’t think to ask, so my fault for not saying something. The “special” was a chicken fried steak. My daughter picked this and unfortunately it was too greasy to eat. My pancakes were light and moist. Really good. My other daughter picked the chicken sandwich and it was good too. The staff was attentive so no complaints there. I almost felt they were bored because we were looked after a lot. And there was not a chance of mingling at our table towards the end of our meal - a couple workers were waiting a table away, ready to clean up our stuff. This was a birthday get together for my daughters and myself - meeting between San Francisco and Mendocino so I wish we were made to feel as tho we could linger. No offer for another latte or anything else. I don’t know if I’ll go back but the food and service were good enough. Definitely could have been a lot worse.

    The food was amazing, but they were clearly understaffed and we had to wait for around 20 minutes while they prepared our table even though we had a reservation. The host also tried to get us to order our food before we'd been sat at our table, so it felt rushed. But the waitress was very nice and made up for it, and as I said before, the food was great!

    The food was amazing, our server was very nice and prompt. The space is a bit cramped and gives off a feel that they tried to cram in as many tables as they could. The gentleman at the next table and I were sitting back to back, which made me a bit uncomfortable. The scenery outside is beautiful, and I will be requesting to sit in the patio next time I dine at River Vine.

    We loved it! My husband and I went at noon; he had the lemon ricotta pancakes and I had the burger w/sweet potato fries. All excellent! I think my burger was best in all of the area, nice clean tasting beef, great bun, etc. We’re going back, taking friends, plus will try the Happy Hour at John Ash, too.

    The food was excellent. We had a Veggie scramble & the Quinoa spinach bowl. The ambience a little cold, unoriginal, & themed in the main room by the patio. Nothing soft or casual. The room w/skylight that we walked by was warmer feeling. Would have loved more patio seating too. Now that we finally found you! Thank you

    Had out of town guests wanting to go someplace with nice outdoor dining for lunch. River Vine came to mind instantly since I was there for the first time two weeks ago. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit there and the food was delicious AGAIN! This time I had the Beyond burger lunch with fries - delicious! It was hard to make a decision because all items on the menu sounded great! Guess I will just have to go back again! CA in Windsor
