This is our 2nd visit and we should have known better. The portions are generous and still, we ordered this amazing app because we couldn't resist. We've since figured out how to recreate their delicious seafood in brandy cream sauce. We had some wonderful seafood entrees and a glass of the local wine. Sadly, they don't have quite the wine list by the glass I would like - I'd like to see more local wines there. But if you can drink a bottle, you'll have far more selection. Make a res - then they'll make an effort to give you a seaside table.

Restaurants that have a great management team usually have great food. We had couple of dinners there recently and had a chance to meet and have drink with both very friendly owners who were very interested in what we had to say and they shared the history of Albion Inn with us as Laura, their beautiful bartender kept our glasses full. Great food with a million dollar view of the Pacific Ocean. Looking forward to our next visit.

Can't get enough of this place! Fantastic breakfast, great service and fabulous view of the Mendocino landscape. If you are gluten-free like me, ask for warmed corn tortillas instead of toast. Not on the menu, but available.

We came for our 10th year anniversary. We were made aware that there is no guaranteed table at the window for the sunset. We made the reservation for 6:10 pm, thinking that would be early enough so we can get a good table. We did not even get close to the window when she took us to our table. When we ask if we can get a closer table, she said it would be another 45 minutes. With this type of restaurant, she should have made us aware that she could not accommodate our seating request and give us an option before seating us. Our waitress did not even introduce herself. She just told us what their specials for the night, took our drink order, and walked away. The steamed shellfish is well flavored and my husband enjoyed the oyster. The filet mignon was cooked just right, but a little bit salty.. even for us who like salty food. The mashed potatoes were wonderful. The prawns were flavorful, but over-cooked. I did not taste any ginger. I asked to substitute the rice for vegetables. And the vegetables were overcooked. I expected more from this caliber of restaurant. Just like some other reviewers, i had to pour my own Sole water. The chocolate mousse was delicious and i am not even a chocolate lover. We came from southern california. This type of restaurant would not make it there if they continue to service in this manner. The romantic location can only get you so far. This is our first time here so we do not know what it was like in the past to compare. But as of March, 2014 it is just mediocre at best.

We went there with such high expectations but the overall experience was just ok! The staff just did not have it together that evening! The food was good but not great but the experienced could have been so much better would the staff been more attentive. Too many times our water glasses were empty and were never refilled and we refilled our own wine glasses. Even the order was not correct ...
