The Gate at The Murieta Inn will deliver a unique “farm-to-fork” dining experience, delighting guests staying at the hotel and adding vibrancy to Rancho Murieta’s dining scene. To create our seasonal menus, our Executive Culinary Team artfully utilizes produce from The Inn and Spa’s own Angel Wing Farm, a five acre farm and state-of-the-art greenhouse located on the property. Our Executive Culinary Team works with local ranchers and fisheries to source the restaurant’s meats, poultry and fish to complement the menu’s bright, hearty fare. The Gate will also feature a full bakery program with all of the hotel’s baked delights being crafted on-site.
The Gate beverage program features an extensive wine list, including selections from the nearby Amador and El Dorado wine country, a private bourbon collection and a variety of tap beers from the region’s vibrant craft beer scene. Our cocktails will feature premium spirits enhanced with fruits, flowers and botanicals from Angel Wing Farm.

    My wife and I did the Valentine's Day dinner, I had the duck and then the chicken masala. The duck was pulled style but had a bunch of bones in it and was under seasoned. The chicken masala was very small portion And the chicken was very dry and overcooked and maybe 4 oz of chicken. And not very flavourful. They were live singers and were a little loud at first. Our server was very nice and attentive. My wife had the beef Wellington which was not bad. We also had the scallops which tasted odd. So we didn't eat them. We spent over $300 including the tip and I feel the value was not very good. It was just okay.

    The pork chop is moist and flavorful … Love the Ahi Poki and on a lighter side the Caesar Salad with pan roasted Shrimp is yum 😋 Our fave servers are Christy, Mallory, Kaylee and Joe. Very accommodating to switch things around according to your taste preferences. Ask about the specials too. We go there at least once a week … sometimes more.

    We started with the brie en croquet with port and blackberry compote, entrees were halibut with lobster Risotto, vegetarian ravioli, pork chop. Everyone loved their entrees and cleaned their plates! For dessert, we had the flourless chocolate cake and the cheesecake. We always enjoy our meals here, fresh ingredients, well seasoned and well prepared.

    Service needs help. Everything else was wonderful. Someone took our order and we never saw her again. Probably just a miscommunication as we saw plenty of staff on the floor. Will return, hopefully with better service.

    Last seating of the day and ALL the food was cold and hard. After further review ALL stereos on the food were out. Did not eat a thing and debated what to do since the meal was $59.00 a plate. My wife decided to talk with the manager (Mary) about it. Thank you Mary as she did not charge us for our meal at all. We love this place but their buffet needs some help.

    My husband and I found ourselves without plans on Christmas Day and were so glad that The Gate was open for brunch. The buffet was filled with every single breakfast and lunch food items you could imagine. The desserts were fantastic. Everything was fresh and delicious and my husband took advantage of the all you can eat feature. Our server Joseph was very attentive to each table. Every person on staff on Christmas Day was welcoming and we thanked them all for working on the holiday. It was a nice touch that the manager came around to each table to make sure we were having a good experience.

    The food and service was excellent . There were patrons sitting in the tall seats and they were sure loud with their F bombs. Every other word was that, spoken by male and female. For such a classy hotel and restaurant, it’s too bad that couldn’t have been controlled.

    We requested a high top on the app as we made the reservation.When we arrived we were told the hightops were reserved. I said yes, we reserved one. Hostess said, well we have a booth for you. She did not refer to our reservation.Rather than cause a commotion we sat in the booth, which was fine but the hostesses attention to detail was not there!

We asked to be moved to the larger curved table and were told it was reserved for seven arriving in15 minutes. We were leaving when party of 5 arrived for the larger table one hour plus later. We had to ask for bread and refill of water. We felt The server know he was getting a 20% Tip no matter what! Disappointed with service, but we all enjoy our meals.

    While booking The Gate I noticed several recent reviews whereby the reviewer did not have a good experience. I am sorry that this was the case. It has never been my experience. My partner and I have been going to the Gate since their opening often monthly. We have never had a bad experience or even mediocre and this time was no exception. The service was very good and the food was great. I had a filet steak that was very tender and cooked the way I asked for. The veggies were also very delicious. I hope that the bad experiences people have recently had is a blip and not something that will be ongoing. If everyone had the experience my partner and I had Saturday evening, they will not be disappointed.

    I hate to say this because I really like going here but something is off. The service when you get service is great. Maybe they are short staffed I don’t know…I had to look for someone to get coffee twice, the gentleman next to Us said he has been waiting 3 and a half years for the check. It was funny but felt so true. This is my second time eating brunch here the food is good presentation is lacking it looks like you threw it together so it definitely doesn’t look like the photos. The service is just horrible! I hope they can get it together.

    Our experience at the Gate was extremely disappointing. If you look at recent review, you will notice a lot of inconsistencies or poor reviews and I now understand why. We waited an abnormally long time for our waitress to first come to the table. We weren't offered bread (even though other tables were receiving it) and we weren't told of any specials (even though we later learned there were some). We ordered a steak and the salmon. The steak was raw. It was purple and cold inside. The Salmon was atop a bed of wet yet uncooked rice pilaf and tasted like it was mixed with dish soap. We sat there with raw steak and soapy salmon for 25 minutes before our waitress ever returned to ask how our food was. They did allow us to order something different. We got the burger and french dip. Both of these were better, but still not great. The french dip was very salty (even for a french dip) and the burger, although cooked okay, just tasted strange. One bright note is that the french fries with both of our meals were actually fantastic. The manager was also very apologetic when he learned of the issues with our first meals.
