This is the single best dining experience we've had when visiting the Russian River. The location is beautiful, service is outstanding, and the food is incredible. This is a perfect place for a date, as the grounds are romantic, and the dinner is paced and allows for a relaxed experience as the sun sets. Get there early for wine tasting in their lovely courtyard under the trees.

We had a wonderful evening dining on the patio, surrounded by the beautiful redwoods and lights. It was a special treat to see the sunset and the gardens where they harvest their produce for dinner. Duff was very attentive and ensured we had a wonderful evening!

There was four of us. Two couples. We were both celebrating our wedding anniversaries. We were neglected quit a bit. Our wine glasses were empty for long periods of time with out asking us if we would like more or perchance a bottle or anything. We were only talked to when our food came out. Not happy with the service for the amount we paid.

Full disclosure, we are already members of the Russian River Vineyards wine club. The wine is wonderful and the staff are always fun as well as knowledgeable. We had friends visiting for the weekend so I thought I’d book a wine and food pairing. It exceeded all of our expectations. The tasting was elevated in taste and presentation but casual and friendly in experience. Highly recommend!

We were able to walk into the gardens and explore freely before our food and wine pairing. The patio and surroundings were a beautiful setting for a wonderful lunch. Jonathon, our server, was fantastic with explanations and attentive service. It was very laid back and welcoming and I would most definitely visit again. I would pick this vineyard over any of the ones we visited in Napa.

We were met with; All of you have to decide to either eat from the left side of the menu or the right side, which is the one we hope you pick. If this restaurant is trying to establish itself as a fine dining experience, the waitstaff need to improve their service and diction. There should be beautiful flower arrangements or linens on the table. The seats should be clean and comfortable.

The setting was sublime. We were able to sit outside and the lay out was well designed. There was sufficient room between tables. The tasting menu was very creative....and delicious. It is sophisticated and each course is a lovely segway to the next. I can not say enough about the service and the staff. Best in Sonoma County. They were very congenial, knowledegable and accommodating.

It was a super dining experience. First, they limited the seatings so it was very low key, peaceful, quiet, and not rushed. The meal was very good. Many new things to try that were interesting and just the right size so you were not overwhelmed with food.

The space there is lovely and their food was amazing. The price is very reasonable given the quality. A favorite for us is to arrive early, do some wine tasting and then head into their dining area for dinner.

Gorgeous setting--we sat outside and the weather was perfect (unusual for Russian River Valley evenings when the fog frequently rolls in). We did a combo of the tasting menu and regular menu since there were items on both we wanted--the chef was more than willing to oblige. The food was off the charts--one of the best restaurants in SoCo at the moment.

From the time we walked onto the property throughout the wine tasting and the 4 course Prix Fixe meal my wife and I loved every minute of or visit to the Russian River Winery. We live in the area and have been at countless places in the area but had missed them. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys great settings, hospitality and delicious farm to table food.

I received a call at about 4:00 pm to reconfirm my reservations for 7:00 pm. Fine. At 7:06 pm I received another call asking if I was still coming as "we will need to give away your table". We were literally pulling up. When we arrived, there were at least 5 empty 2 tops that were never used! The call was rude and inappropriate. Servers were unprofessional. Way too pricing - $250 for two.

The spot was lovely and the food was VERY good. The outdoor dining is lovely but the indoor dining not so much. We really wanted to sit out side, and they would not seat us at the one fancy table outside that supposedly had a reservation. No-one sat at the table in the 2 1/2 hours that we were there. That was the most disappointing. The bathrooms were filthy. Good wait staff.

We are club members and always love going to the Vineyards with our out of town guests and family. We had the wine and food pairing (you get 4 free with a wine club membership). It was delicious, but don't expect it to pass for a real meal. Although none of us are big eaters, the 2:30 experience left us pretty hungry by 6.
