Stopped in for a late lunch. Ample parking even for a large camper van. We had the mussels, and the clam flatbread. All very good. Good selection of beer and wine and pleasant service.

Gourmet au Bay is the only waterfront wine bar on the Sonoma Coast. We also serve coastal wood oven cuisine. The menu is designed around sharing plates and includes a selection of flatbreads. Chef Sam Badolato creates daily features and keeps the menu ever changing. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. Our patio is wind protected.
