This was our first Thanksgiving dinner at 301. What an amazing experience. We booked our satay at the Carter House, and forgot to make reservations for dinner. We ended up having room service, which was fine. The food was outstanding.

I have been here many times since I moved to Humboldt a few years ago and everything from the service to the food is always great. If you have never been before I highly recommend that you check it out!! They have the best happy hour in the area by far as well, I mean $2.50 for a cocktail is... More

My girlfriend and I went to Carter house, we order3 appetizers and two of them are disappointing, one is brussel sprout and the other one is mushroom tart, the brussel sprout looks like a mess, like you ordered from the street in China, source on the side of the plate and taste little over seasoning, then the mushroom is too...

Hi Tony R, I am sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with us. Normally our presentations are on point, but it sounds like this time that was not the case. I will have to confer with the chef and have him make sure that all of the cooks are taking the time to put out our food... More

Several dinners this visit. Best crab cakes we ever had anywhere. Delicious oysters. Excellent cheese platter (choice of three from their list of mostly local cheeses, including my favorite, Humboldt Fog) presented with fresh figs, walnuts, currant preserve and crostini. Agnoletti filled with fresh pea cream, truffle oil and sauteed figs. Extensive wine list. Only disappointing dish was an unadorned... More

Hi Jonis7, Thank you so much for the great review. We are excited to hear that you had a wonderful experience while dining with us.

We ate here two nights. The first night we had the "Discovery Menu" where there were wine pairings with each course. Each course and wine pairing were a delight!

We ate here whilst staying at the rather disappointing hotel. That said, there was nothing disappointing about the restaurant. The food was imaginative and very tasty, also well priced for the quality. Service was friendly and efficient. Its probably worth staying at the hotel just to eat in the restaurant.

OH. WOW. Nothing in the county compares, for dinner. Breakfasts are great, but limited menu and only for hotel guests. Dinner is the single greatest culinary experience in the county - and beyond. Occasion? Event? Need to impress a date or business contact? Foolish to go anywhere else. Most extensive & exclusive wine list north of SF. Staff is trained... More
