We had three meals here during our stay. Thrilled over all of it. I can't say enough about the food. Every bit of it was so beautifully executed. I had the Dungeness crab Benedict for breakfast. Wow. Even the coffee is great. We had Bellinis. Delicious. For dinner the first night, I had chowder and a cheese plate. Amazing. We... More

We eat here often when we stay at the Lodge. The food is fantastic and the service is very accommodating. The wine list is very Sonoma but still you will find something you will like.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal with a St Louis couple we met at the wine/cheese tasting in the lobby. Naturally seafood and local wines were the emphasis. The food was delicious and the service was attentive. We recommend the Drake.

The food was delicious for the most part. There was an interesting combination of flavors with my swordfish that I probably wouldn't have put together. But it wasn't horrible. Each appetizer, entree and dessert had plenty there to where we left probably over-stuffed. The service was so-so. At least we had a great table and didn't feel like we were... More

Overall this was a good experience and the breakfast is great. For dinner we ate mostly appetizers so I can't really comment on a full menu. We were staying at the Bodega Bay Inn (on property) hence it was very convenient.

We had a brunch and a dinner while staying at Bodega Bay Lodge. Dinner was delicious and well-served. Brunch was mixed: I ordered a bagel with smoked-salmon, tomato, onions, capers. After a few bites, I noticed there were no capers. The waiter said they were out. I asked why he didn't tell me when I ordered and/or why the kitchen... More

I am not a big fan of dining "on the property". Most places are overpriced and not really good. THIS DOES NOT APPLY HERE. The property is beautiful and the restaurant seemed understated, but the food and service here are excellent. I had the swordfish and my wife has the gnocchi. Both dishes were huge, so come hungry. No portion... More

Dinner was just average. Service OK. Restaurant has lots of windows overlooking Pacific, which we had requested, but none were available.

Just had breakfast this trip. Excellent food, service and ambiance. They really try to please their customers. Lovely setting. We have eaten at this restaurant many times and have also taken friends there. It does run to the expensive side but definitely worth it.

Thank Anna J
