We had an early dinner after an afternoon concert. We ate in the upper level bar area, which was crowded with concert goers, all in a happy mood. Our server was cheerful, friendly and helpful, and managed to get our dinners to the table promptly, despite the pandemonium going on around us. My meal was a simple burger without a... More

Nice atmosphere. Wait staff was average. Food was okay, but for what it cost I expected something better than what we got. The food and presentation was something I would expect at Applebees, not here. There was 3 of us, and without any drinks the bill was $110. LIke I said, the food was 29.95 quality. So while it had...

After a long drive up the coast, my two companions and I stopped at the Garden Room in the Mendocino Hotel for cocktails. I was with my sister, and we had come to celebrate our birthdays in Mendocino. The service from the young woman behind the bar was reluctant and very slow. They did not appear to be very busy....

I was a guest at the Hotel and just stopped in for dessert and boy was I glad I did. I asked the server for a suggestion and she said her favorite was the Huckleberry Creme Brulee, so I ordered it. It was fabulous! Nice crunchy top, not too many berries as to overwhelm the creme brulee, just perfect. I... More

There wasn't anything to dislike about the Victorian dinning room. We ended our day there with a wonderful dining experience. The prime rib (Friday and Saturday) excellant and an interesting dessert menu top off the list of likes. The staff was friendly and attentive. The dinning room is large and the tables are well spaced adding to the experience. Reservation... More

We had a lovely lunch in the Garden Room in the Mendocino Hotel. According to the history, " the original structure of the Hotel, dating to 1878,remains today and encompasses the lobby, lobby bar, kitchen and upstairs rooms". There are beautiful glass dividers with the crests of British towns engraved on them in the dining room. Our waitress was delightful... More

IT was a toss up between the eggs benedict and huervos ranchero so we each got one and shared. My husband is picky on his hollandaise sauce and this one was fantastic.

we went to share a dessert and a glass of wine to end our evening. The olliberry cobbler was wonderful and the ambience took us back a hundred years. Service a little slow but friendly and suited us since we were not in any rush anyway.

We'd heard great things about the restaurant, so we stayed in from the light rain, and ordered room service. (We were guests at the Garden Suites / Mendocino Hotel). GREAT: Angus burger. I added Point Reyes Blue (cheese) & avocados. This burger was excellent. You are given a choice of salad or fries. $13.95. GOOD: Japanese ramen. House made miso... More
