“Less expensive pub menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

The main restaurant was a bit over our traveling budget and we were told they had a less expensive menu they call the "Pub" menu. I had the most delicious meat loaf that sat atop a pile of creamy mash potatoes with some type of yummy gravy. My partner had crab cakes that he said was full or crab meat and wonderful. We had a table for two at the window overlooking the ocean. You can't make a reservation for the pub menu but only for the main dinning room. This is a very beautiful old hotel full of antiques. Even if you don't eat here you must go into the hotel to look around.

Excellent service. Wonderful lunch/brunch menus. Great bloody Marys. Three kinds of eggs benedict - I love the crab benedict especially. Wonderful wine list featuring local wines.

“Mendocino Hotel Dining Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

We have eaten here on a couple of other trips we've made to Mendocino and always enjoyed the Victorian ambiance and the food. It's like going back in time to the turn of the century. We took our friends there and had a light dinner, and everything was excellent. There was a roaring fire and we spent the evening playing cards at a corner table, very happily.

“Eating within nature!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

The Victorian Dining room was added on to the side of the Mendocino Hotel and blends in very nicely with the atmosphere of the hotel. The fresh crab omelet is worth it. The preparation makes the taste well worth it!
