The food gave me stomachaches. I ordered the fish of the day. The outside was good, but the inside was terrible. No pizza, no Pinot, and not many items to choose from

Vegetarian options: Around 1/8 of it is vegetarian.

Kid-friendliness: Pretty good

based on what we experienced last night, this is an average place... restaurant was cold inside when we got there and never really warmed up even after an hour while filled with people! management needs to acknowledge that unlike the moving staff, people sitting at table need to be eating their meal in a warm environment and it was just not it. Waiter was polite, friendly and available when needed.we ordered wines by the glass and not cheap at $16 average per glass...food was delivered without a long wait but both entrees were luke warm not hot!!! one was sent back and was just average in taste, nothing special. Steak frites was fine...we ordered the brownie sundae for dessert and it was just ok, nothing out of this world. they charge $5 for bread if you order some so you know.waiter kindly took off one entree off the bill after my friend barely ate any of it, taste was too greasy.An overall average experience for this once great place we had visited 10 years ago.too bad.

Wonderful place. We tried all the specials. Bean soup (delicious). Pot roast (so tender). Beignets (straight from New Orleans).I really appreciated the portions, and that they were willing to split the entrées between me and my partner without any hassle. The wine list is also above reproach. Great variety of Sonoma county and external wines. Looking at you Bonny Doon from Aptos.When we come back to Glen Ellen, this will be on the list to visit again.

Dinner on our second night in Sonoma was in the charming town of Glen Ellen, just south of Santa Rosa. Most of us chose the Prix Fixe dinner at "the fig cafe & winebar" featuring Duck Confit with one outlier having the pasta with wild boar. All paired with delicious Pinot Noirs from Niagara and California that we brought with us since the have very reasonable corkage. Another night to be remembered!

Similar to its sister restaurant, the food was out of this world. ? Unfortunately, our waitress never came by our table after we ordered, and she forgot my wife’s drink. It was a busy night—and they appeared short-staffed—but she walked by us multiple times without checking in. All that said, it was a lovely meal and we would go back!

Vegetarian options: MUST order the polenta…!

We visited on a trip to Sonoma. The food was amazing. We both had the steak & frites as well as a wonderful MacLaren Syrah at our servers suggestion.
