“Good casual dining with a fabulous ocean view either inside or out!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

What a nice experience to have a delicious breakfast (my husband loved the egg Benedict, and my French toast was great), friendly service, and fabulous view in Mendocino. It's our new favorite casual place to dine. The cell phone reception is great for that area of the coast! We'll definitely be back when we're in northern CA.

“Fair Prices, Great Food”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Flow quickly grew to become our favorite restaurant in Mendocino, on Main Street. From the food to the prices to the view and the service, this place is a must-eat. The fish and slaw were amazing. The only thing they should differently is serve warm bread. The butter served with the bread was noticeable delicious. They are open for breakfast too. We ate there several times and will be returning without a doubt. Do not miss this experience at Flow.

“Go with Flow”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Flow is a delightful small restaurant right on the main street of Mendocino - and there aren't many other streets, so you'll have no trouble finding it. It's up a short flight of stairs from the street and has inside and outside seating along with a great view of the ocean. Sit inside if it's sunny or you may end up broiled along with the fish. We've had lunch at Flow twice and enjoyed both visits. Good food. Nothing fancy. Pleasant and accommodating service. Fine for families and small kids. Sort of an all-American kind of place. Just what you might need on a day of sightseeing in charming Mendocino.

“enjoyed the view and food”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

WE stopped by here for a late breakfast. I ordered the huevos rancheros and my sister ordered the chiliquiltos (sp). We enjoyed the food, especially since we come from New Mexico and like comparing how other places prepare food we are familiar with. We had a nice time, enjoyed the view and access to a bathroom.
