Glen Ellen Inn Oyster Grill & Martini Bar Review

Tucked inside a creekside 1940s cottage, this cozy restaurant exudes romance, especially if you sit in the shady garden or on the patio strung with tiny lights. After taking the edge off your hunger with some oysters on the half shell and an ice-cold martini, order from a menu that plucks elements from California, French, and other cuisines. You might find ginger tempura calamari with grilled pineapple salsa, or dry-aged rib-eye steak with chimichurri sauce and a heaping side of country-style fries. Desserts tend toward the indulgent; witness the warm cinnamon-pecan bread pudding with a chocolate center that sits in a puddle of brandy sauce.

    Delicious every time!

    Just had dinner with my wife at our favorite new place in Sonoma wine country-the Glen Ellen Inn. We Loved the oysters, loved the Mahi-Mahi, Loved the dessert sampler! I will be back-with friends!

    Are oysters supposed to be DRY??? Yuck.

    Yeah, that says it all. Dry tasteless oysters, pretentious clientele, mediocre service. Take your chances, see for yourself. Or don't bother. Everyone else seems to love this place. We thought it was aweful.
