farm fresh gourmet dinner

The Farmhouse Inn is located at 7871 River Road, in the town of Forestville.

From 101, north or south, you will take the River Road/Mark West Springs Road exit.

Located in the heart of Sonoma County’s world-famous Russian River Valley wine region, this luxurious six acre property is just minutes from Hwy 101, the Sonoma County Airport, numerous renowned wineries, canoeing or picnicking along the Russian River, shopping, ballooning and cycling. The idyllic beaches of the Sonoma Coast are less than 30 minutes by automobile.

The award-winning Farmhouse Inn and Restaurant is the culmination of a fourth generation Sonoma County Italian-American family’s dream of combining warm Sonoma County hospitality with delicious food, fine wine and luxurious accommodations.

The inn has a beautiful and edible food garden…quite lovely. They are not pet friendly so we did not stay but we did walk around a bit though.

The ambiance is very professional and friendly… All of the ingredients are fresh and local, from neighboring farms… such as the goat dairy a few minutes away.

I had the halibut… i have never eaten a piece of art before, but the flavors were blended together artistically and everything was extremely fresh… small portions but very rich and superbly well presented… the gnocchi with mushrooms for starters, was all cheese, no potato or pasta, seared quite deliciously.

I also had the chocolate souffle for dessert. I did not feel like i even had room for dessert but had to have chocolate so i did not realize that chocolate souffle can be heavy but this was the lightest dessert i have ever eaten in my life…

this is a real splurge for the wallet and great for special romantic and other occasions…
