Really had a great time at Laurens open mic night. A bunch of really great people, friendly staff and fairly good food. The food was good but not excellent I thought. We got a variety of dinners, chicken pot pie, meatloaf, burgers and I thought overall there was nothing too special about them. The deserts were excellent however. I will... More

Boonville is not a place many people get to see but if you are anywhere in the area or just want to have a nice trip on a windy road & eat really good food make the trip to Lauren's. Sports cars & motors can relate to the great roads around our Ca coast line but you have to be... More

We stayed in Philo for the weekend to get away from the Super Bowl chaos in San Francisco. There are limited options for food in the immediate area. We tried out Lauren's on a Saturday night after wine tasting all day. The place was very casual. The food was great - hit the spot after a day of drinking. Homemade,... More

We all enjoyed our fresh and tasty dinners at Lauren's. A bit chaotic room, but the food was excellent and the staff pleasant.

Lauren's is a pleasant country restaurant with a diverse menu that stresses local products. In fact, on a table in the back, there were some tomatoes and other vegetables for sale The dishes are well-prepared and nicely presented. The wait staff are friendly and competent. There is a nice selection of draft beers and a good selection of wines, featuring... More

The minute you enter the place, you know it is a favourite of local people, and for good reasons! The food is fantastic. Nothing fancy but everything is prepared with fresh local products and you can see it, smell it, taste it. I had the summer pasta dish. The little cherry tomatoes were delicious and the basil flavour was out... More

We decided to have lunch here on our way home from Mendocino. Jessica was the only server despite there being a lot of diners. The vegetables were very fresh. I really liked the Grilled Avocado, Tomato and Fontina sandwich. My friend had a salad and bowl of Tomato Basil soup. For dessert, we shared a delicious peach, blackberry cobbler with... More

Good service but a bit slow. Food was great. Corn Cake appetizer was so good we could have eaten more. Steak salad was large and the veggies were fresh. Homemade cobbler was for dessert and came with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Lauren's looks the slightest bit "western" from the outside. It seems unintentional. On my first drive by it didn't have that farm-to-table cafe look about it. Fortunately, I did a quick check of reviews, and made a u-turn back there. The food is real and honest, made with good ingredients and not much fanfare. If you want precious, composed dishes...
