A beautiful spot on a cool afternoon. Share the coast and tasty fresh seafood with sea lions. The service is wonderfully attentive. Drive up the coast to lunch in Jenner for lunch or end your day of Sonoma wine tasting here.

You cannot beat the view here, and the food is very good; however, prices continue to climb at a faster pace than quality. Just my opinion.... That said, this remains one of our favorite places to eat on the Sonoma County coast!

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".
