You cannot beat going from brunch to wine tasting a few feet away. The farm to table inspired food is always tasty and creative. The views and ambiance make it a popular place. I always look forward to coming back.

The mushroom risotto did not have one mushroom in it. The halibut was greasy and salty with mystery vegetables and the dessert was a ridiculously large chocolate thing that did not in any way make up for the overpriced meal. the salad was the highlight of the meal. Sadly for $85 pp.

I wish the Russian River Vineyards had mentioned they were having a prix fix meal on their website, or when we made the reservation. It came as a surprise but since we were already there, we decided to go with it. Throughout the meal, however, I intermittently wondered if the chef was actually playing a joke because the food was so odd. I like experimental food but salad with granola? It tasted just like salad with granola. The sashimi and chicken mcnuggets needed a little more vision and the risotto was way too salty, as was the caviar foam. The portions were tiny (but covered in shoots and sprouts). The dessert was monumental, however. Huge! I guess to make up for the lack of food in the prior courses? We hardly needed the additional cookies after that. I've never written a bad food review, and to be fair, the waitstaff and atmosphere were lovely. Maybe it's just not a good idea to go to a farm to table restaurant in the middle of winter when nothing is growing. The carrot was good. Perhaps if they had indicated it would be a prix fix meal in the first place we wouldn't have felt so blindsided and our tastebuds would have felt more solicitous?

The Steak was outstanding . The butternut squash soup and. duck dish were quite unimpressive ( and vegetables were partially uncooked ). The wine was fantastic!!

5 of us went for lunch. Staff was attentive. Only 1 person of five truly enjoyed their meal. Fried pork sandwich was bland and greasy, which is sad because 3 people out of 5 got that. One person got mussels and was disappointed by the overwhelming flavor of only butter. The homemade chips that we all looked forward to were also a disappointment, bland and greasy like the fried pork. All the bread products were really good and the BLTurkey was delicious!
Squash soup was good. And the two salads consumed were also good. Great fresh ingredients!
I know this restaurant has always worked with their own outstanding garden bounty and much locally grown food and I've always appreciated that . The chef this day was uninspired.
We rarely have the funds to go out to the many fabulous restaurants in this area so when we do we need it to be a great experience. I don't feel I can recommend this to my wealthier clients who expect to pay for the lovely things in life.... like a great dining experience. And it will be a long while before I will try this place again, especially when there are so many other outstanding dining options in this area.

Went for friends birthday. Very disappointed overall. Food was just ok and the service was poor. Other tables seemed to get better service, but we felt forgotten. We got the dessert menu then no one came back so we asked for check and left.
