At first we ate there because it was convenient (we were staying at the Heritage House), and we were tired from the driving. But it was good, so we ate there again on the second night. We are not "foodies", we just like good food, and the food was very good, with a couple specials actually unique and outstanding. The menu was eclectic (which we appreciated), having pizza, burgers, salads, and other light fare, as well as main dishes. We ate light fare on our 3rd night at their bar, and were pleased with the bison burger and the warm spinach salad. All in all the prices were OK, some dishes were expensive but some were average. Staff very nice and efficient without hovering, which we appreciated.

I guess when you eat in a hotel you ought to expect to pay more than the meal deserves and this restaurant definitely proves that point. But the food was fine, no real complaints, though the menu needs more focus. Given that we had really fine dining earlier on our vacation in Guerneville and Jenner, at a marginally lower price point, its hard to justify eating here -- although the view is fantastic. Dinner was expensive, and breakfast unbelievably so. You can get a buffet brunch at a 4 or 5 star hotel for what breakfast cost here. On the plus side, however, the staff was nice and attentive. Overall, good meals though not memorable, and certainly not worth what they charge.

Kitchen needs to focus on a few great dishes and decide what the restaurant wants to be - fine dining? burgers&pizza? Whatever, I think it's still going through growing pains.

Good intentions are just not enough. Someone needs to elevate this restaurant from a just "OK" one (albeit with a beautifiul view) to a place with carefully conceived and prepared food - and served with a high degree of skill. Heritage House deserves this -- and it's just not there yet.

First impression was OK - great service to start with. Cheese tray was spectacular - lots of cheese and fruit!, but went downhill from there. Ants crawling all over the table. Took FOREVER to get our meal - then arrived with the wrong thing for me. My husband finished his meal just as I was getting my corrected meal. The meals weren't very good. The help was very friendly, but didn't make up for the lousy food.
