Loved the food, the atmosphere and the staff! If we lived in the area we would be there quite often. Definitely will return if traveling to Bodega Bay again.

My fiance had dinner there twice in our four night stay. Exceptional food and service. Not large dining area so be sure to make your reservations early.

We eat here every time we are in the Bodega Bay area. The food is superb, service is friendly, helpful, and pleasant. The ambience is upscale/informal. This restaurant is a gem.

Michelin star restaurant in Bodega bay! Also one of the only places in town open until 9pm... Very good menu and everything ordered was impressive. The waiter we had was top notch and he should get his own stars! Highly recommend going!

I would think so. They had tables for 4, and if there are only 3 of you I'm sure that's no problem.
Are there any dog friendly tables?
