Superb vegan fare, unusual choices, very well prepared and presented. Not inexpensive but definitely a cut above. Dog-friendly and accommodating. Excellent location at the edge of Mendocino. Service and staff were great. Only, relatively minor, complaint is that the wine offerings did not include the option to purchase half-bottles. We (family of 3 + Lab retriever) very much enjoyed our meal and we will patronize the Raven again.

Stopped in at the last minute one evening. The view in the trees was wonderful with attentive service. We both had the international Indonesian special dinner. Unfortunately, none of the dishes had a lot of flavor. Maybe they just toned down the spices for the general eater but as this was the special that evening we were hoping for more.

Probably it was a fluke that I got food poisoning after eating here and ended up in the Ft. Bragg hospital (I believe it was the wild mushroom dish, since it was the only thing my partner didn't eat). When I got out, I did eat breakfast there the next morning. Most folks think of this as a treasure for vegans, and the food is creative and delicious. But if we ever go again, I'll avoid anything with mushrooms or any other possibly foraged ingredients.
It's a great place to bring dogs to -- both the restaurant, which has a special seating area for folks with the dogs, and the hotel itself, the Stanford Inn.

Inexperienced servers that are hard to get their attention when something is wrong with the food they have given you. It feels like the servers want you in and out without much thought to eating in a relaxed atmosphere. The food is very much overpriced for what your getting. They say they are growing their own vegetables that they serve in the restaurant but I have to wonder if that is really true. Because when I asked about why the prices were so high. I was told that they pay very high prices for their vegetables. So, it doesn't make a lot of sense. And the owners don't seem to like feedback. It's their way or the highway. It sure doesn't say much for customer service and appreciating customers.

Just spent two days at the Stanford Inn and had four tremendous meals at the Raven Restaurant. This place produces wonderful organic vegan food. The portion sizes are satisfying and the presentation is appetizing. Great wines too!
