Beautiful oceanfront location, good service. Cannot really recommend the food, unfortunately. I ordered the lamb shank which was very stringy and lacked flavor. My husband ordered the gnocchi, which were gummy. However, the house made bread was excellent.

We went here with our daughter and son-in-law to celebrate our wedding anniversary. They suggested the spot, on an isolated part of the Mendocino coast with a great view of the Pacific. This restaurant is the exception to the general rule that great views don't come with good food. The food was outstanding, the service superb, and the music, guitar... More

We always loved this restaurant in the past. This time it seemed just OK. The foie gras appetizer was wonderful, but the fisherman's stew was just ho hum. Fresh tasting seafood but the broth had nothing really interesting going for it. Could have used some orange zest or a tiny bit of cayenne pepper to make it interesting. If you... More

We enjoyed a hearty and delicious dinner at the Ledford House. The bread was not only delicious, but baked personally by the owner. Warm and cozy atmosphere on a windy and stark cliff-side. Very romantic and enjoyable. I would describe the live music as a bit "retro-generation", but it was not too loud and it was fun.

I have been going to the Ledford house for 14 years and it has always been great. The 1st time was in 2002 but this time the food was awful. I had the escargot in butter and garlic.....not butter....not garlic just pan of snails with no taste. My partner had the cassoulet and it was dry as though it had... More

We visited one evening for dinner while staying at the Heritage House. We were not disappointed. The service was top notch, the food was delicious and the sunset and view over the water was absolutely beautiful. The restaurant had live music on the night we visited. Everything was perfect for our visit and we would love to go back one... More

Had a very nice meal here. The staff were pleasant and professional. The dining room is nicely appointed. Try to get a table next to a window so you can enjoy the view. The menu is interesting and the food well-prepared. I had the roast duck breast with duck confit and my wife had the cassoulet. Their wine list is... More

We were the rood with a guitarist or a table next to the window-we choose the window and watched the sun set in the ocean. Good choice! Food and service were excellent.

One of my favorite high-end restaurants on the Mendocino Coast, the Ledford House really does have it all. Every table has a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. Tony and Lisa Geer have created a menu that compliments every season. Enjoy some of their house-cured olives with bread that Tony baked that morning, while you browse their menus. I could... More
