We stopped in here for lunch, attracted by the views of the sea and windows that flooded the place with sunlight. Not being a big fan of Victorian kitch, the sea views were much appreciated. The menu was very eclectic--from traditional burgers and salads to a really good ramen noodle bowl, as well as more hearty mains like fish. The... More

Victorian décor in the bar and restaurant. You can eat in the bar or back in the restaurant. The bar has a combination of tables, booths, and couches to relax and have a glass of wine or a locally brewed beer. You can also order off the bar menu. We elected to eat in the dining room. The dining room... More

Had the Scallops and Pork Chop, both excellent, service was also great, and the place itself is worth checking out.

This year we had a large group (8) attending the music festival, and the Hotel Mendocino was the only location that could accommodate us. My expectations were slightly lower than small trendy restaurants, and I was very pleasantly surprised! I had the risotto which was delicious. The service was fast and attentive, and we only had to walk across the... More

This well-established restaurant has a place in my heart. We have had many special meals there over the years including a few Thanksgiving celebrations. This place is in the Mendocino Hotel and adjacent to a great bar overlooking the picturesque bay. Both the bar and lobby are incredibly interesting because of the antiques, the hand carved bar, the stained glass... More

We ate the scallops and scampi dinner. Food was FANTASTIC!! Service was great, and the setting was very Victorian. We enjoyed just staring at the old stained glass in the dining room, and the Victorian décor. I was chatting to a lady at the table next to me dressed up in old time clothes. I was going to introduce her... More

Lovely dining room, reasonable service, good food, not cheap but overall a good dinner location. Worth having an aperitif or after dinner drink in the lounge in front of the fire

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

ZAGAT describes the restaurant best when they write “Victorian delights abound at this charming, period Mendocino Hotel restaurant kitted out with a dark-wood interior and a Californian menu that’s right on the mark; order small plates – or if nothing else, a cocktail and hang out in the bar under a stained-glass dome and drink in the lovely, Old West ambiance” “Well worth the price!”Selected "Best Hotel Wine Country,2009" San Francsico Chronicle.North Coast cuisine.
