Little River Inn Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
As always the food was excellently prepared and presented. Peppercorn N.Y. steak was over the top good as was the Petrale Sole. Spring greens salad were very tasty and refreshing. Service was impeccable
Came back for breakfast and the avocado,bacon and sour cream omelet was to die for as well as the homemade scones. Made our mini trip to Mendocino an experience to remember. Going back in September 2017.Patrick
Little River Inn & restaurant is a gem! Not easy to get to, but so worth the drive. We've had many breakfasts & dinners here, and have always been impressed with the food and service. Try their killer Bloody Mary's, they're the best. Simply put, I love Little River Inn.
Made reservations for and ate in the main dining room. Bar menu on back of menu left the impression that you had to be in the bar to order from this section. Not the case... and my fault for not asking. If the main meals were good, no need to second guess myself. Since they weren't, I feel like a good meal slip away. Other diners around us ordered from bar menu and it looked and sounded from the comments like it was great. Oh well.. maybe next time.
The best dining experience we had during a week of enjoyable dinners in Mendocino. I had perfectly crisped eggplant with zucchini papardelle. We will make the Little River Inn a vacation destination next so we can also experience breakfast, lunch, brunch, and the bar, which has its own menu and incredible view of the Pacific. Wonderful local hospitality.
We were in Mendocino for birthday weekend. Little River recommended by family that visited regularly ( 10+ years ago). Part of resort complex. Dining room a bit dated, bar is sparse, views to the Pacific are impressive. Great maitre d' service, very professional.
Service was pleasant and responsive. Wine list well rounded and fitting of abundant local wineries. Crab cakes and oyster fresh, wedge and beet salads abundant. Osso Bucco very well done but Vege Torta was doughy. No recognition of birthday even w reservation comment.
Restaurant empty when we left at 9:30p w only local guests at the bar.
Worthy but value not fully equal to the cost.
Every time we go up to Mendocino we always eat at the Little River Inn. We have never been disappointed with the menu selections and the service is very good. We sometimes set in the bar area and have a beer and fish and chips, But the dinning area has a relaxing view and get for breakfast and dinner.
Even though we will continue to recommend this restaurant to friends etc., please note that we were very disappointed with certain dishes at our annual family get together. Normally, every dish is superb, which we have become accustomed to over several decades of family gatherings. This time, however, the sole almondine (two of us ordered that dish) was mediocre, and only mildy flavorful. I think it was perhaps overcooked and therefore two 'squishy'. The chicken dish ordered by another of our group was similarly not all that good. The crab cakes were excellent, as were the salads. I think they may have been a bit understaffed, as it took way too long to get a class of lemonade to our grandson - well into the meal. I don't blame our server, as she was constantly busy.
Ate here on our Anniversary and were given a nice table with a great view of the ocean and the whales passing by. Food was excellent. They wished us a happy Anniversary on more than one occasion and even presented us with special chef-made truffles for our late night celebrating. They went the extra mile with the service and it was very much appreciated.
lovely, old fashioned restaurant with a twist. Food was delicious and I even had a 2nd serving of the mussels with a topico cream sauce - delicious.
Lovely service, good wine list, great food options, and a good value.
I would certainly recommend coming here.
We have eaten here several times in the past and always been happy with the food , but this time I had a crab pot pie which was dismal. It was mostly peas and potatoes. I may have had 1 1/2 ounces of crab at best. It certainly did NOT merit the $28 ala carte price
