Talk about perfect location for a restaurant. The view is excellent and if you and your company has nothing to talk about... fine! just gaze out along the coast, on the ocean, on the river! Yeah, it was a gorgeous day for our visit. But,...More

I made reservations for our party of 3 more than a month in advance, then called a week ahead to reconfirm. In both instances, I requested a table by the window, since the restaurant is known for its views. We arrived about 10 minutes early,...More

The salmon chowder is really tasty. A lovely spot to relax and take in the view of where the Russian River meets the Pacific.

Had an enjoyable lunch with wonderful view. Service and food was great but be prepared to spend $20 or more per person for a light lunch.

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".
