Even though I didn't get to see one of their amazing sunsets (too foggy), this place is great. Wonderful service, delicious food, great menu & fun drinks. We were a group of 6 & we all said this was our favorite meal in the area.

This place was highly recommended by some of the locals, but it didn't live up to its billing in my opinion. First and foremost were the menu selections: very limited and, for a place on the Pacific ocean with fishing villages all around, they had...More

Hi there; you contacted a person who reviewed the restaurant, not the restaurant itself. I suggest you go to their website and contact them directly.

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".
