We were recommended to go here by friends in London and we were not disappointed. We were greeted with a warm welcome and seated at a nice and quiet table in the conservatory. There were live jazz music and it was buzzing with people. Our waiter was outstanding; friendly, fast and with great recommendations. We shared the charcuterie board (served... More

The tasting was awkward at first as we were told that they were "at capacity" for tastings. We were told that we could do a standing tasting. We opted for that and for our first two pours we drank wine while we ambled around the property. A table then became free for our next three pours. We ordered an appetizer... More

Let me start off by saying this is a must visit for "dinner" if you are anywhere in the Santa Rosa or Forestville area. After a week of wine tasting and fine dining all over the Sonoma and Napa area, this place got the award for the best dinner that was not expected. I've found following TripAdvisor you usually can't... More

This is a go to place when you want to enjoy lunch in a wine property setting. You don't see vineyards from your table but your in a wooded setting with lots of wine close at hand. Nice selection of dishes and wine list menu is good. As a family we shared every item selected, from meats, cheese, scallops and... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary dining at this lovely rustic restaurant in he Russian River wine country. It was warm enough to eat outside initially, then they brought out a few heat lamps. We were seated on the lovely patio and treated to some very good entertainment during dinner. Dinner menu is very limited and expensive. Wine menu... More

My wife and I ate her during our trip to Sonoma for her birthday. RRV has a fantastic little tasting room with a small restaurant. We stared with a simple bread and cheese appetizer where we discovered the most amazing olive oil! The wines were very good and loved the environment. We transitioned from the tasting to dinner and it... More

This winery/eatery has been through many incarnations. I think the most interesting detail is at dusk when the bats leave their nests to feed. The food is forgettable. Eating outside is always casual and that's the experience.

This is a great spot for a nice meal outdoors in the Russian River wine country. The winery is scenic and historic. The gardens are beautiful. Lunch and dinner are served on a large patio, weather permitting. The inside dining room is also inviting. Food is good but pricey. We enjoyed a number of different dishes tonight. As usual, prices... More

Amazing spot for wine tasting, on their outdoor patio. Overlooks the vineyards for incredible late afternoon relaxing. The restaurant itself, has tasty food, yet has a limited, small menu. The service was a little less desirable--I asked for salt, which the waiter never brought. Water glasses were dry for very long periods. Overall, I recommend going for wine tasting and... More
