Although the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was small, damp (our allergies kicked in immediately) and it was a very basic motel room. Breakfast was decent. Needs updating. Was anxious to move on.

Good food & service - could be quieter. Food was served timely, waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Wine was surprisingly good despite the casual family atmosphere.

The FOOD if you want to call it that, was HORRIBLE! Just got back home and had to write this one. Nice and attentive staff....that's it. Oh, wait, they did allow my "service dog". So much for the plusses. Drinks fine. My wife had a...More

I've eaten here half a dozen times and always feel welcomed and satisfied. Love their unique and tasty Spanish-style dishes... quite an extensive choice of menu items. I'd order again.... BBQ'd artichoke for appetizer, Spanish meatballs (alblondigos??), lamb burger, stuffed kale rolls.... so many more...More

The Vineyards was a very nice surprise. There were 6 of us spending the day in Sonoma, and we started with a multi-course lunch at the Vineyards. We enjoyed a selection of appetizers and salads, all with a spanish/tapas theme and every course was delicious....More

My husband and I agree that the meals (both Mexican fare) we had at Vineyards Inn was the worst food we have ever had at a restaurant. There are so many good and great restaurants in Sonoma County, this is definitely not one of them....More

The menu has tapas and paella, and lots of other Spanish food that we were not familiar with. It was good, but not great. The service was friendly and attentive, but the energy in the place was low. We went at an odd time -...More

Description
Original, organic and orgasmic have been used to describe this local's wine country hidden gem. You have to experience what they offer. Open every day except Tuesdays service from 11:30 a.m. straight through until 9 p.m. Very authentic flavors of Spain considering the Chef/owner is Spanish Basque. You should really attend his Chef's Basque dinner on the second Thursday of every month! Family style the way the Basque restaurants of San Francisco of yesteryear used to serve. 7 courses brought to the table in tureens & platters for all to share. Much from the Chef's organic gardens nearby. Treasures from local farmers, ranchers & fisherpeople. Chef Esteban prepares & presents each course. $45 per person including Chef's homemade wines crafted from his certified organic grapes! Limited seating so reservations are a must!
