This was an excellent meal in a beautiful setting. My wife and I shared the maple-tamari glazed tofu, a few tacos and the barbecued pulled mushroom flatbread slider. The tofu was a bit too much in quantity for two people, but was very good. The tacos were a bit messy to eat, but delicious. And the pulled mushroom slider was one of our favorite dishes at any restaurant ever; it tasted like we remember sloppy joes tasting from our meat-eating days decades ago.....so, so good! I also had a local, organic hard cider that our waitress recommended, and it was expensive but perhaps my favorite ever (sorry, don't remember the name and can't find it on their menu online).

The waitstaff were very attentive, helpful and cheerful, and the view out the window was quite nice, albeit with a limited view of the water. The cost was reasonable given the high quality of the cuisine.

By the way, the hotel to which the restaurant is attached was very attractive in a zen-like way and located in a peaceful setting not far from the ocean. We'll probably stay there on our next stop in Mendocino.

I had been looking forward to going to the Raven's Restaurant for quite some time. It is a fully plant based restaurant. We went for brunch, and there were a lot of different, creative dishes. The hollandaise was amazing and the polenta dish with cashew cream was delicious.

Definitely try the sundried polenta with greens for breakfast and the burrito and banana split for dinner (and the pecan torte). Healthy AND delicious. Wonderful wine and cocktail list too!

This is a plant based restaurant with a lot of variety and exceptional food and service. The views are amazing. We ate here all four nights of our stay and loved it We were able to sample most of the menu.

Yes I'm vegan so probably biased. But this food was really good. The seaweed entree was a bit of an acquired taste - not sure I would order it again - but the ravioli was delicious, as was the roasted beet salad. And the carrot cake! Service was great, especially since my friend asked to change her entree after it had already been ordered. You do have to run the gauntlet of hotel items for purchase in order to get to the restaurant, but that didn't take away from the quality of the food. Beautiful atmosphere too. Will come again!
