This turned out to be the treat of our trip. Great place with good unpretentious food. Incredible wine list. Fair prices. Very friendly staff that made us feel very comfortable. Try the flatbreads because they are different but are great. The cheese plates go well...More

Great place for a meal after sailing with Rich. The lamb flatbread was excellent. The small plate Arugula salad was big enough for two to share.

Only one week into a new site and two words describe our experience, yum yum! Wonderful treats like baked Brie with croutons. The wine was smooth as silk and the service was as good as any 5 star restaurant. Lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Gourmet au Bay is Sonoma Coasts' only waterside wine bar. Wine selections are local, small production and award-winning. Try Wine Surfing(R) on the deck and watch sea lions, seals and a variety of birds playing in the harbor. We serve cheese and cracker plates daily. From time to time we have a caterer set up an outdoor kitchen and serve light dinners. On the first Friday of each month, we serve $1 oysters on the half shell starting at 4pm till they are gone. Our wine selection changes regularly. The three criteria we use to select our wines are 1) under 1000 case production 2) 90 points or better and 3) gold award winning. All the wines are from California (with a couple of exceptions). Gourmet au Bay has been in the business of wine tasting and "Surfing" since 1995. We look forward to seeing you on the deck!
