Albion River Inn Restaurant

Reviewed By outandabout49

We fell in love with Mendocino eight years ago and returned this year to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. This was our first meal at Albion. I chose it because of the positive reviews and for tables at a window for the marvelous view of the sea. I made reservations for 5 p.m. (Window seating can be guaranteed only for 5 and 5:15 reservations.) I made the reservation through Open Door, then confirmed it by phone to ask for a window table and informed them of our anniversary celebration. We had the best table in the house (in the northwest corner). Staff was friendly, attentive, and wished us a happy anniversary. My wife had the macaroni and cheese as an appetizer, whitefish, and the Meyer Lemon and Honey Cheesecake for dessert. She said each dish was excellent. I had the Point Reyes Blue Cheese Salad, the New York strip sirloin, and the chocolate raspberry cake. All but the steak were fine. I ordered the steak medium rare. It came out medium. It was hard to chew and not the melt-in-your mouth quality we should expect from a prime cut for $40. Under other circumstances, I would have sent it back, but 1) I did not want to put a negative vibe on our celebration and 2) It would have meant waiting another 10-15 minutes for my meal. The demi-glace on the steak was delicious, and the sides -- glazed carrots, mashed potatoes, and sauteed green beans -- were excellent. Our desserts were fabulous. The bread served with the meal -- small slices of soft white bread with crust -- was unremarkable. I was hoping for something more upscale, such as french or multi grain rolls. The coffee was a disaster -- tepid, watery with little to no flavor. To note: a small bar is located in the corner of the dining room. Happy Hour is between 5 and 6. On the evening we were there, a group of 4 or 5 people came to the bar to take full advantage of the reduced prices. Things got a little noisy. Because of the disappointing steak, bread and coffee -- especially the mortal sin of botching what should have been a superior steak -- I am tempted to give the Albion only 3 stars, but I will give it 4 because, by and large, the evening went well.

We ordered the seared Scallops and a Snapper dish. The Scallop dish was surrounded by green peas and a bed of herbed orzo. The peas were so fresh yet crunchy, and the scallops amazingly tasty. Truly hats off to the Chef!! The Server (an elderly man) even gave us a small box of the chef's fudge since we didn't have room for dessert that night. Oh, and yes, we even enjoyed a sea view from our table at the window.We will definitely return on our next trip to the Mendocino coast.

Patterson's Pub

Reviewed By Boxer4

We’ve been to Patterson’s probably 5 or 6 times and have always enjoyed it (thus the repeat visits). This last visit was for drinks only at 4:00 ... sat at the bar and were seen to by a very friendly woman. We were engaged almost immediately in good conversation with our bar mates ... A very eclectic bunch (including us!). If you enjoy a COLD beer and interesting folk ... dis is da place!

Mendocino Hotel Restaurant

Reviewed By Reigo

Second time here. Had to include the stop while my wife and I are on vacation. Great location off highway 1, good parking. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Place was clean including the restrooms. Food was really good with large portions. But being hot, they had all the doors and windows open, and we all had to fight hundreds of flies landing on our plates!

Epic view of the Pacific and Mendocino Bay. Deck and bay window views. Fresh, local, organic cuisine, skillfully blended by chef Matt Samuelson. Whale watching from our second-story view, December through May. Beautiful sunsets most evenings. A great plac

I am never disappointed by establishments that have awards of excellence. I found this restaurant by walking, read the menu board and found it has a comprehensive menu with something for everyone. Beautiful architectural entry up the tower stairs. enjoy your visit.
