What a great find! Thank you to all who reviewed this so well. I completely agree with just about everyone! Starting with the Wine Spectator Grand Award wine list to the Mushroom and Marrow tart, we were thrilled with our dinner here. Delicious and classy are the two best descriptors I can use. But they are very comfortable, as in we came in, in our travel clothes, and felt right at home with everyone else there. The Bolognese and Gnocchi had me swooning, and the huge meaty lamb chops my husband had were delectable. Service was friendly and very comfortably paced.

Lovely food beautifully prepared-----the ingredients have farm to table freshness but are prepared with big city sophistication.

Holy cow...where to begin? The Wine Specatator Grand Award wine list is the creme de la creme. If you have an inkling of interest in grape juice, please do as I did and cuddle up to the massive fireplace in the main lobby of the Carter House Inn with a copy. For dinner, my party of three decided to share everything. For starters, we ordered two Mushroom & Marrow Tarts (trust me if you only get one, you'll regret and order another, therefore throwing of the timing of the rest of your dinner. Do your server a favor and just order two). Our Restaurant Manager, Daniel (blame him for the M&MT recipe), was attentive checking in with us. For entrees, we ordered a ribeye and the lamb, both medium-rare temp which were prepared to perfection. Being from Oregon, I appreciated Daniel telling me later the lamb is from Oregon.

On another evening, Alicia the bartender suggested the Caesar salad which was so good. The balance of lemon with the touch of anchovy gave this the perfect balance. Of course, the M&MT followed.

All in all, this restaurant experience was far above excellent. I would absolutely recommend while you are in NCal exploring the Victorian architecture or the spectacular Redwoods NP. This team makes you feel like family and you'll want to return.....very soon!

We had a lovely time at this place. Our server Elizabeth knew what we wanted before we did. The food was outrageously good. We'll be back.
