Delicious varied menu...wonderful food, fun atmosphere. Been here for lunch, and for dinner. Highly recommend the Underwood. And for those who enjoy alcohol, there's a full bar!!

We recently visited the Russian River Valley and were looking for a place to eat that was close to where we were staying. The Underwood Bistro is located in the cute, little, town of Graton. There's a French brasserie feel to both the restaurant and the bar. The actual dining area consists of a small room of about a dozen... More

In retrospect, I should have sat in the dining area or outside, but assumed a Sunday afternoon wouldn't be so raucous. Despite the noise, the slow braised pork shoulder was worth the visit. Service was pretty good, but not top notch. Would definitely eat there again, but not in the bar area.

My wife and I love this place, not only because we share the same name, but because it has excellent food, great service and a great vibe. This is a busy place and we were fortunate to go with friends who are well-know to staff, so we had no problem getting in. The drinks and food were well prepared and... More

We stopped by without a reservation and were lucky to get a nice table in this busy restaurant. You can't reserve online and our accommodation didn't have cell coverage. Some dishes were fine but others not so much. The service was similar - not bad but not welcoming or particularly friendly.

We had a Christmas dinner in February. The service is good, very attentive from the young man filling the water glasses to the wait staff. The four of us ordered different items, we enjoyed them all. The smoked trout salad is great and can be split. The interior is warm and charming. The customers are diverse and colorful. It was... More

Easy street parking. Very popular bar. Warm interior with late 1880's floor tile. We enjoyed the roast chicken and the sirloin of lamb, both cooked to perfection. Good service in spite of restaurant being packed.
