We dined here on a stormy, rainy night, so we did not have a view, but I think it's a good one. We began with an excellent green salad with candied walnuts, fried leek strips, and blue cheese, in a perfect vinaigrette. I had the best grilled prawns, in a lime, ginger sauce, with mixed grilled vegetables, and rice. My... More

Very nice views, a very pleasant staff, great food with a nice selection of local wines. The menu does not change much from day to day, but the chef takes advantage of local produce and seafood, so the specials are what to watch out for.

Our favorite dinner in Mendocino. The restaurant is at the Albion River Inn, where the river flows into the ocean. Pretty dining room with great views. My only complaint about the dining room is that in an effort to make as many window tables as possible, the tables are the size of checker boards. Food was delicious and friendly service.

I have to say that we have been coming to Mendocino for decades and this is the first time we've eaten at the Albion River Inn. I called ahead to reserve a window seat as it was our 25th wedding anniversary. We got our requested table and it was a wonderful view. Window seats are 5:30 and 5:45 reservations this... More
