My wife and I had dinner here for our anniversary and the food was amazing. We watched the sun set and enjoyed their drinks. The bartender was excellent. Would recommend coming to this place for the experience and views!

This was a true delight. It sits right at the point that the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. The restaurant is really small so reservations are a must. They were full at sunset but we got drinks from the bar and sit on the...More

We eat here 2-3 times a year. Went for lunch last week and enjoyed fish and chips with a nice bottle of chardonnay. Great views. Attentive service. Good value. Never disappoints.

This restaurant has an amazing location with a fabulous view. Usually that means the food is second-rate but not here. Everything we had was well prepared with very good ingredients. The service was excellent. Very tough place to park at peak times.

The epicenter of Sonoma Coast dining...the River's End is located in the quaint village of Jenner by the Sea about 20 minutes north of Bodega Bay. The restaurant is set on a bluff overlooking the Russian River spill into the Pacific Ocean. During lunch you can watch the Osprey dive in the river for fish or the harbor seals frolic at riverside. Dinner time is all about the sunset - the show is worth the visit. Fortunately, the restaurant chefs and service staff aim to outdo the natural surroundings. The kitchen prepares California cuisine with a focus on local ingredients. Chef Martin Recoder prepares menus that are changing with the seasons and delight the heart. The service staff is led by Maitre d'/Owner Bert Rangel, who has owned and managed the restaurant for over 10 years. The Chef in the Redwood Bar is talented Patrick Keane. Trained at the French Culinary Institute, Patrick utilizes the freshest ingredients and classic techniques to create truly "Artisanal Cocktails".
