Quail Inn At Oakmont

Reviewed By Neal S

Quail Inn Restaurant at Oakmont golf club Since recently moving into Oakmont, I have made many trips to the Quail Inn bar/restaurant which is adjacent to the Golf clubhouse. It is easy to mistake it was part of the golf course especially since there is an outside patio overlooking the driving range, and a ‘food window’ for quick food pickups…. I enjoy sitting and eating at the bar where I can converse with the bartenders, who are very friendly, congenial and interesting people, as well as watch the golfers on the nearby green. Very comfortable seating at the bar and at the leather-seat chair & tables along the windows. I am especially fond of the way my 2 favorite bartenders make my very good Cadillac margaritas. The food menu is a little limited but everything on it is delicious. They also accommodate my gluten-free menu by providing corn tortillas and lettuce-wrap burgers.It is definitely a locals hangout because it is convenient, comfortable, with nice and competent people serving good food at fair prices…so drop in if you are in the Oakmont area.Quail Inn Catering at Oakmont golf clubHowever this month we discovered that the Quail Inn also includes a separate catering and event function areas, which operates with a separate kitchen and staff, which has its own parking area and two reception entrances. It all starts with an initial meeting with Michelle Sand who is the catering sales manager. The facilities can be divided into a number of function rooms by movable folding-walls, and with walls of windows and French doors leading to the very large outdoor patio set with with tables & heaters, and from which you overlook the golf course, and enjoy vista-wide views of the beautiful mountains that surround Oakmont. We were looking for a place to hold a reception following a wedding celebration for about 40 people. Michelle showed us a number of design options, including one area where it was already partially pre-decorated with some swags of white netting material decorated with sparkly LED lights hanging from the ceiling. Doing some mental designing she provided us with some possible arrangements/sizes of tables, back-bars etc, we quickly settled on her suggestion for the four round 10-top tables and the 2 long side tables - one for the bar and one for desserts and coffee, flower arrangements, candles, lighting, music, bar content…color of table cloths, overlays, napkin form & color, chargers, table-top items, and we were done after a 30 minute conversation! Well we did spend an additional 10-minutes discussing and deciding on the pass-around appetizers and dinner menu, including some gluten-free items for me.One of the nice features was that on the morning before the event, we brought the flowers, candles, music CD’s, Photo displays and table-top items, gifts and games, to Michelle and she had the entire room fully decorated and setup with all of the flower arrangements, hurricanes with lit candles, soft music playing with dimed lights, and all of the table top favors and other gifts neatly displayed. Also, we opted to have an open bar for our guests and they provided the complete bar and set ups, on a pay-as-you-go basis. I will say that the food was very tasty, freshly prepared and served hot…the pass-around appetizers were a hit and served by two very polite staff circulating with trays of hors d’oeuvres including a very tasty twice baked potato with smoked salmon and truffle oil …. Salads that were served fresh; we chose the hearts of Romaine with pears, blue cheese, toasted almonds and creamy lemon vinaigrette. We did pre-order the roasted crushed ribs of beef for the main dish, nicely plated, great taste and enjoyed by all… They also accommodated my gluten-free pallet by providing me with a separate chicken piccata dinner….. this was not a ‘rubber chicken dinner’. . And the desert of cheesecake with raspberry sauce was so good that many people actually licked their plate. I however had a wonderful gluten-free ice cream sundae. Now I know a lot of you are thinking there are places like this available in many neighborhoods and you’re probably right…but it’s not only the facilities I’m speaking about… I’m talking about the people who staff those places. At Quail Inn the staff is attentive, polite, efficient, gracious… they politely unobtrusively kept the schedule moving and the guests happy. They basically will accommodate your event and provide you anything that you need or allow you to bring whatever you feel comfortable with. So the food is good and the service provided by our two servers was extremely polite and efficient; It was an overall wonderful experience.

The Saloon at Jack London Lodge

Reviewed By expat326

And yes as the other reviewers have said, Try the burger! The signs are not prominent so you might miss this hole in the wall as you drive into and out of Jack London State Park. You'll find a lot of regulars at this spot, but not to worry, the bar keeper will make you feel welcome. There is a good selection of IPA's on tap. The food is respectable, the fries very good.

Rutherford Grill

Reviewed By trotter88

This is part of the Hillstone restaurant group. I have been to several of these restaurants around California and Arizona. They all have almost the same menu which is a good thing because the food is terrific and they nail it almost every time. My wife and I always get the same thing, the French dip sandwich. Incredible thing. Sliced prime rib on a soft roll with Cole slaw. This is the ultimate French dip. I don't mean ultimate in the gimmicky kind of way, I mean it because it is always identically perfect from the last one I had. Once I ordered the ribs just to try something different. They were very good fall off the bone sticky sauce type but after I finished I wish I had ordered my usual French dip. They serve very good salads. If you want a side or starter type salad look at the bottom of the menu for the great little salad. It isn't listed with the rest of the salads. The jalapeño corn bread is wonderful. It is served in a cast iron skillet and is made for more than 2 people. Worth ordering but very filling. They have a small but nice wine list and stocked bar. The corkage is free for the first bottle of wine which is a generous touch especially in the wine country. I am a large person and the booths are plenty big even the 2 tops. This place is very popular and almost always has a crowd of folks waiting comfortably in the large outdoor patio bar area. The design is very pleasant, a little dark inside, relaxed but nice enough for a romantic dinner if not a little loud. Lots of people having fun. We have a branch of this chain in our town and go when we have a need for the French Dip. I have never been disappointed, they always deliver. IF they have artichokes get one, they are perfectly cooked with a few light grill marks and a nice mayo sauce on the side. You won't be sorry, just get there early.
